From the high Himalayas to the backwaters of Kerala, India offers spectacular natural beauty in every shape and form, ensuring a luxury holiday to India is something you will not forget.

  • Bespoke tailor-made holidays

India cannot be easily described or summed up. It's a beautiful mix of people and places, a patchwork quilt of a thousand polarised traditions and cultures brought together into one colourful expression.

A luxury holiday in India is something that will exceed your expectations. Explore India's rural heartlands to see the Royal Bengal Tiger and sample India's authentic village life. Watch history come to life in the remaining colonial and Mughal architecture, as well as the palaces of Rajasthan. Whether you are searching for your perfect honeymoon, want an in-depth luxury cultural tour, or a family wanting to create life-changing memories on a family adventure, we'll tailor a private tour that is just right for you.

Everything we do is customised - our itinerary suggestions are simply starting points to get the ideas flowing, as we always start with a blank piece of paper and build your ideal journey from there. We use the very best staff in India, from expert private guides to amazing drivers using the best vehicles, ensuring your holiday to India runs seamlessly.

Between the team at Scott Dunn, we have spent many years living, working and travelling through India. India is a place where specialist knowledge of the destination is essential when planning a tour to the subcontinent, and that's where Scott Dunn comes in. We love India, and we simply want you to love it too.

I believe that travel broadens our horizons and allows one to be completely immersed in a different world, a great way to escape the pulls and pushes of daily life for awhile - like a wonderful reset button. I also believe that it means something different and unique to each of us.

FAQs about our India luxury holidays

  • When is the best time to go on holiday to India?

    The best time to go on holiday to India is from October to March when the weather tends to be warmer and drier – without being too hot. However, it’s important to note that during December and January, certain regions like Rajasthan will experience cooler weather and increased chances of fog.

    For shoulder seasons and excellent value for money, April to May is an excellent time to visit, although humidity increases along with the chance for thunderstorms.

    If you’re determined to travel between June through September, we recommend keeping to the foothills of the Himalayas, avoiding the monsoon season currently happening in India’s other regions.

  • What activities can I do on an India holiday?

    India is primarily a culture-focused holiday, so expect a lot of historical buildings and markets, incredible food tours and native wildlife.

    Get involved in traditional ceremonies, explore cities on privately guided walking tours, and hike India’s countryside while immersing yourself in village life. These are just a few of the activities you can expect to do on a luxury holiday in India.

    Check out the rest of the unique experiences we offer on our holidays.

  • What's the best way to get around India?

    Depending on where you are travelling between, we recommend transferring by private car, train (if the route allows) or internal flights.

    For our guests who are travelling around Rajasthan, we usually arrange everything overland so they keep the same driver and just pick up different guides in each location. To get a glimpse at how it works, this itinerary is all overland until the final stop where we would then fly guests back to Delhi to fly back to their home destination.

  • Are luxury India holidays suitable for families?

    Luxury India holidays are suitable for families, but ideally for those with older children. Not only are the tours here more culturally focused - meaning less to keep little ones engaged - but the cuisine and accommodation aren’t necessarily set up to support the travel of young or infant children.

    That said, India holidays make for some of the most memorable family trips. With a culture so vibrant and unique, it’s one of those destinations that will have you and your loved ones gawking in awe at all that surrounds you, and eagerly talking late into the night about what’s to come.

    To get an idea of family holidays in India, here’s our sample family itinerary.

  • Can I book a luxury India holiday for my honeymoon?

    Absolutely! Our travel specialists are always on hand to create your perfect honeymoon in India.

    India exudes romance and curiosity, and that’s not only because it has one of the world's most romantic monuments. From lush beaches and intrepid safaris to gorgeous sites in Rajasthan, a honeymoon in India doesn’t just tick off a bucket-list destination, it offers a taste of so many different types of holidays that you’ll get to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

  • Where do your India luxury holidays fly from?

    There are a number of direct flights from Singapore to India. Fly direct to Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Bengaluru, giving you plenty of options depending on where you are travelling to in India.
