5 Nights Itinerary at the Bangaram Island Beach Resort

Bangaram Island Beach Resort Sample Itinerary
(Lakshadweep)

Bangaram is everything you imagine a tropical island to be and from the moment you set foot on the blinding, soft, white sand you'll be totally enraptured by the exotic natural beauty of what can only be described as one of the most exclusive tropical islands in the world.

It is quite a small island you can walk around it in an hour or so. surrounded by superb, soft, silvery sands with an interior of lush green coconut groves, it portrays an image of pure ecstasy. Surrounding the island is a coral reef, which forms a large sheltered lagoon, the most incredible shade of luminous turquoise, which also encloses three small uninhabited islands.

Surrounded sixty Square Kilometers of pristine lagoon, two uninhabited islands five minutes away and a shipwreck just outside the reef where you can see the most colorful fish, make the resort an exclusive place to be.

The resort provides an amazing unwinding opportunity for discerning guests. The cottages are nice and spacious, perfectly in sync with the nature. You can sample the best seafood and you would have plenty to do, if you like to jump into water or bask under the sun.


Resting in the silvery beaches of Bangaram, one can listen to the symphony of waves and swaying palms. The sense of true bliss in the solitude is the ideal stress-buster; an antidote for all ills of a hectic life.

Casino Hotels filed a Writ Petition in the High Court of Kerala challenging the notice of eviction and demanding extension of the lease period.

    The issue became more complex with a bunch of petitions from the land owners of Bangaram island. The SPORTS has been collecting a huge amount from its lessee, but was giving only a marginal portion to its leaser – said the land owners. While hearing the W.A.1517/2010 dated 22nd October 2010, the two learned Judges of the Kerala High Court, who heard the Writ Petition found that the case of M/s. Casino Hotels is untenable.
