India | Sri Lanka | Maldive Islands | Nepal | Bhutan | Tibetan Autonomous Region

India is larger than life. It is a hospitable country founded upon a breathtaking matrix of languages, customs and religions ~ a sea of humanity where a thousand behaviors breathe as a single nation. India’s appeal begins in the past and present of Rajasthan’s palaces and royalty, deserts and fortresses, lumbering camels and graceful dancers in colorful saris. For those who seek inner peace, the sacred waters of the Ganges beckon, and pilgrimage to the holy city of Varanasi becomes a quest and a must. Sultry southern India enchants with its swaying palm trees, mysterious temples, and the white-sand beaches of the Indian Ocean. In the midst of all this, the Bengal tiger remains elusive in Ranthambhore National Park. To the north at the foot of the majestic Himalaya, the magic of the “hidden” Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan lies in wait for those who seek her serenity. Next door in Nepal, the search goes on for the fabled Shangri-La, while the world’s tallest mountains never cease to entice and enthrall. Feast your eyes and hearts on the mysterious, charming, complex subcontinent of India. Whether it’s the smile of a child or the power of the Taj Mahal, a journey through India will render you a changed person.

We suggest (at least) 4 days at the unusual Reef Villa & Spa Wadduwa ~ where seven unique, exclusive and luxurious suites feature antique four-poster canopy beds with high ceilings lined with Kerala terracotta tiles. The suites are furnished with a combination of Colonial antiques and crafted items of Indian origin, while the Bharat hand-crafted coloured floor tiles are beautiful and cool underfoot. Bathrooms are a luxury in themselves with free-standing hand-carved bath tubs, twin carved granite vanity basins, rain showers with a polished granite screen and stunning Venetian style mirrors. All suites feature shaded and spacious Burma teak verandahs for private dining and relaxation - with comfy chairs and Indian antique swings - and are named after flowers of the island. Reef Villa & Spa is a truly spectacular and luxurious villa, set in three acres of exotic tropical gardens with palm fringed pavilions and reflection pools that create the romance and grandeur or Sri Lanka.
