“Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone take care of your holiday for you?”
KOKOindia is a very specialist little travel company established in India in 2007 by English born founder, Joanna Lester-George. An enthusiastic world traveller, Joanna first set out to explore India as a backpacker many moons ago and fell in love with its beautiful craziness. Inspired by her experiences of ‘The Most Extraordinary Country On Earth’, Joanna first moved to Rajasthan and then later to Goa, where she created a dedicated travel consultancy for fellow travel lovers to design their own dream holiday in India.
As a specialist travel company based in India, KOKOindia is a far cry from the usual anonymous travel agents or 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 travels extensively around India to personally source outstanding hotels and experiences for KOKOindia, and has a wonderful network of hoteliers and friends across the country to connect you with.
The ethos of a bespoke trip with KOKOindia is to reflect your individual style of travel and to ensure the planning of your exciting India trip is utterly stress free. We design bespoke holidays based on our personal experience and your personal definition of luxury – an opulent palace hotel, a stylish city break, a soulful spa retreat or simply a relaxing beach holiday with someone you love. KOKOindia’s friendly, ongoing travel service is essential to a well planned holiday in colourfully chaotic India, and we look forward to designing an unforgettable holiday for you!
