Hi

I've been there a couple of times, stayed once at Bangaram and the other at Agatti Beach Resort.

Lakshwadeep is a wonderful place and you will find more details at http://www.lakshadweeptourism.com/

Kadamath is another island worth visiting. Others like Minicoy etc are supposed to be quite far and can only reached by ship (no air links)

Bangaram Islands is the upscale resort while, Agatti Beach is quite nice (not near 5 star standards, but good enough). Kadamath is supposed to be good as well (I can’t tell for sure, for I’ve not been there).

Here are the contact details of the resorts:

cghearthhotels.com/bangaram-island-resort.ht…

http://www.agattiislandresorts.com/

There are two ways to get to Agatti: (1) By air from Cochin to Agatti (the only air strip – a breath taking view from the air – see photo’s along with my review)

(2) By Sea – Ships ply from Cochin

Hope this helps

Let me know if you need any other information

Rajan

If you are planning to fly into Agatti, I would suggest you consider a vacation in Maldives. I was planning the same thing last year & realized that Maldives is cheaper than Agatti. I stayed at Helengeli resort for six days for less than a lakh for 2 people & a child including airfare.

Consider the cost @ agatti - 7K a night for 5 nights = 35K. Airfare for 2 works out to 28K. Total for 2 people is 63K.

Same in Maldives would be 120$ a day for 5 days = 27000. Airfare for 2 is 27K. Boat Transfer @110$ is 10000. A travel agent will be able to put together a better deal for you.

For just a little bit more, you can do a lot better.
