|Honeymoon at Bangaram
The Island Hideaway of
Bangaram island resort is some 200 miles from Kerala to the south west
of India in the Arabian Sea, and is one of the Lakshadweep Islands. Normally
it is accessed by a flight from Cochin to Agatti, then onward by boat for
a 90 minute ride. Getting onto the boat at Agatti is an experience in itself,
as you get onto a raft, and then they tow you out to the boat!! You instantly
feel this is a real hideaway holiday, and your tropical island resort is
going to be a bit different. Take good recommendation and fly Kingfisher
and not Indian Airlines for reliability.
It is the ideal romantic
honeymoon getaway, a lush green uninhabited island covered in coconut groves,
and formed like a teardrop. It is encircled by pristine white sand and
a big lagoon, and is part of a coral atoll with another 3 islands, all
of which can simply be reached form Bangaram, by outboarding, sailing or
rowing, kayaking or windsurfing if you find the need to be energetic.
It is probably the way
the Maldives were before mass tourism arrived, because the coral reefs
are ablaze with color and packed with fish because as yet they are comparatively
If you would like a tropical
holiday on an island hideaway, or a romantic honeymoon getaway, then Bangaram
may be your ideal destination or as a part of a package including time
in the Kerala part of India.
You need to grasp this
island hideaway, while ideal for a romantic honeymoon getaway, or for folks
who want to play at being castaways, it isn't at all for folks attempting
to find luxury. If you want the trappings of a 5 star resort, just don't
Bangaram itself contains
thirty sheds which has a number of family sheds in twin/double cottages.
There are no TVs, phones or air-conditioning, and to complete the island
getaway feeling there are no newspapers so you will be utterly out of effective
contact with the tensions of the modern world. Each hut is tiled, on the
beach, and has a palm thatched veranda, ensuite lavatory, ceiling fan and
a refrigerator. The accommodation is simple but very comfortable, but please
note there is no hot water!!
The epicentre of Bangaram
Island resort is the restaurant shed that has been built around a central
pole and made from bamboos and palm fronds. The food at the resort for
lunch and dinner is a bit Indian, and a bit Continental, and extraordinarily
much seafood based. The food is with no exceptions outstanding.
Breakfast includes cereals,
eggs, Indian dishes and a lot of fresh fruit.
At night there's a barbecue
on the beach, and the opportunity to eat outside overlooking the moon shining
on the lagoon Bangaram Island resort is the one place where alcohol is
authorized in the Lakshadweep Islands, and the beach bar is the centre
of the evening activity. It serves lager and cocktails and will remain
open until the guests have had enough!!.
