Sodha Travel's Favorite Features at Oberoi Hotels and Resorts

The Sodha Travel team has spent thousands of hours touring, viewing, and inspecting hotels in South Asia. We believe accommodations are more than a place to rest your head; they are an essential element of experiencing a destination. Although there are several luxury brands offering premium services, we are often drawn back to Oberoi. There is a simple elegance, not an ostentatious display. The hospitality is authentic and not forced. Oberoi also considers travelers of all ages, an often overlooked detail in luxury hotels.

Coming Soon: Six Senses Bhutan

Bhutan is a magical destination. Although Bhutan's early history is rich in mythology, much of it remains unknown. The country opened its doors to tourism in 1974, with the number for tourists kept to an environmentally manageable level through government regulated tourist tariffs. Bhutanese are renowned for their happiness and are a proud people who wear their national costume with pride.

Client Testimonial: We Saved Over $4800 with Sodha Travel!

Throughout the years, Sodha Travel has remained committed to offering private and custom tours at reasonable prices. Our passion and expertise for the destinations we serve create not only unique but affordable experiences. I often browse the tour programs of other travel companies and gasp. Why, I wonder, is it so expensive? At least twice a month, I price out our packages exactly as they are offered with other companies - the same hotels, destinations, guided touring, entrance fees, internal transportation, and taxes. Almost every time, our costs are significantly less. Additionally, many of the programs are offered in a group setting, where our costs are for private tours with the added benefits of personalized experiences and schedules.

India:#1 Emerging Luxury Destination

India was once reserved as a destination for backpackers, voluntourism, and group tours. Though the market remains strong for budget-friendly travel - India remains one of the top ten most affordable destinations in the world - luxury travelers have finally discovered the Indian decadence. The 2010 Virtuoso Luxe Report recognized India as the #1 Emerging Destination for Luxury Travelers. Spacious villas, private tours, and the incomparable Indian hospitality are just a few of the elements that have won over the hearts of tourists worldwide. Furthermore, in today's market, even luxury travelers are looking for a good deal - another benefit to experiencing what India has to offer. As one traveler recently told me, "I am a 6-star traveler, but I don't need bragging rights. Even I like to find a good deal. And India was the perfect combination of opulence and affordability."
