The Exotic Marigold Hotel; for the elderly & beautiful, 28th February – 15th March, 2020.  

Come live the Real Exotic Marigold experience

Inspired by the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movies and the BBC documentaries that followed them, Angel Holidays has created its own Exotic Marigold experiment where volunteers can travel to India to see what retirement would bring. The trip will operate much like the BBC series. In fact, it has been developed with the help of the BBC production team.

You will stay 10 nights in Jaipur, the same city as Miriam Margolyes, Wayne Sleep, Jan Leaming, Bobby George and others used for the series, in a classic, historic palace hotel, in-keeping with the Exotic Marigold theme.  You’ll also spend a night in Agra to visit the Taj Mahal and you’ll witness Holi: the wonderful festival of colour and light.

After Jaipur, we’ve added a classic train journey across the desert to the romantic lake city of Udaipur, where you’ll spend an additional 3 magical nights.  We’ll also take you to visit the Exotic Marigold Hotel used for the movies with Judy Dench etc.  If you would like to see more of India, there is also an exciting optional tour of Rajasthan at the end. Please see our ‘Itinerary’ page.

The trip cost is just £1,499 when booked before 1st June. Return flights to Delhi start are extra and start at approximately £379 which we help you find. There is a single supplement of £395, but we can try arrange a same sex room-share if you prefer.

If you would like to take part in this once in a lifetime experience, please contact us, you can also join our mailing list for future Exotic Marigold trips. Please note this trip might be covered by the UK media.
