Far from the madding crowd in the middle of the Indian Ocean lie the Andaman Islands – just the place to rediscover yourselves. No crowds, a slow pace of life and the most beautiful beaches ever!

It doesn’t get more romantic that that!
Laid back Goa is the perfect spot for a romantic interlude. Stroll on the sands hand in hand, dance on the beach, and enjoy listening to a strumming guitar in the background.
