“Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone take care of your holiday for you?”
KOKOindia Luxury Travels is a very specialist little bespoke travel company, established in India in 2007 by British born founder Joanna Lester-George. Having always having been an enthusiastic world traveller, Joanna first set out to explore India many, many moons ago. She was captivated forever by the beautiful craziness of India and considers it to be ‘The Most Extraordinary Country On Earth.’
Joanna left London in 2006 to make India her home, and first lived in Rajasthan where she designed and set up a restaurant. Here she met many seasoned travellers who felt compelled to opt for ‘tour group holidays’ in order to navigate the quirkiness of India. Joanna quickly saw the need for a dedicated and trustworthy ‘Travel Consultancy for India’ – based on firsthand experiences, impartial recommendations and innate travel expertise. She later moved to tropical Goa to set up KOKOindia Luxury Travels so that fellow travel lovers, like herself, could design their own dream India holiday in style.
As one of India’s leading specialist travel company, KOKOindia Luxury Travels is a far cry from the usual anonymous travel agents or online booking engines. Our HQ is located in a fishing village in tropical South Goa, where Joanna lives with her son in a little house by the sea. She continues to travel extensively around India to personally source outstanding hotels and experiences for guests of KOKOindia, and has a wonderful network of hoteliers and friends to connect you with.
The ethos of an exciting, bespoke trip with KOKOindia Luxury Travels is to reflect your individual style of travel and to ensure the planning of your trip to India is utterly stress free. We design our bespoke holidays based on our personal experiences and your personal definition of luxury – whether that be an opulent palace hotel, a stylish city break, a soulful spa retreat or simply a relaxing beach holiday with someone you love.
