Magical India

It is with great pleasure that we’d like to invite you to a magical land called India, a country abounding with historic sights, beaches, palaces, temples, mountains, deserts, state-of-the-art conferencing facilities and unusual and exciting incentive options. With such a vast array of choice, India is fast developing into one of the most sought after conference and incentive destinations in the world. Now is the time to visit this slowly awakening giant!

Sumptious Palaces turned into some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, temple complexes that take your breath away, Princes and Maharajas who open up their private palaces for private groups, polo matches with…elephants, a riot of colours and tastes, Hospitality with a capital ‘H’, service with a smile wherever you go…all this and much more is India today!

India has also long ago learned that westerners have a more delicate palate. You’ll find that the Indian cuisine served in most hotels and better restaurants is not as spicy as you might think and is totally acceptable to your taste without losing its local appeal!

And if all this isn’t enough to convince you, here’s a summary of the very best that India has to offer:

Legendary hospitality - service seems to be an Indian invention
Total immersion in a fascinating foreign culture
Excellent price/quality ratio
Large selection of 4* & 5* deluxe hotels & converted palaces
Varied & unique incentive themes and activities
Excellent air transport connections
Relatively small time difference (3,5/4,5 hours) so no jetlag
Reasonable flying time (7 to 8 hours)

The India feeling starts in the air!

Although a relatively new kid on the block in Europe, Jet Airways has, with over 380 flights daily to 44 destinations in India, long proven itself as the undisputed leader in air transport inside India. But when taking an incentive group to India from Brussels, their European hub, the India feeling already starts onboard the brand new Jet airliners. The friendly staff, the excellent food provided by top chefs and even a choice of Bollywood movies to put you in the mood! By the time you land in Mumbai, Delhi or Chennai after a relatively short and direct flight of only 7/8 hours, Jet Airways has been the magic carpet that has whisked you in comfort to a different world that waits to be discovered!
Jet Airways has come a long way since its first flight in 1993. It's one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, and now it's all set to change the way you fly - for the better! http://www.jetairways.com/be/

Some testimonials incentive organisers

Carole Dieltiens – HRG Belgium
India and more specifically Rajasthan have been a true discovery for me! The magical atmosphere, vivid colours, endless Incentive possibilities and incredible kindness of the people are simply unforgettable.


Mark De Belie – Omnicongress
The Fam trip to India was a truly exceptional,  unforgettable experience,  and that is what it’s all about in our business isn’t it? Jet Airways exceded expectations, not only because of the convenience of their direct flights, but also due to their friendly staff and the very high level of service on board.  We were extremely spoiled by Taj-hotels in their breathtaking Maharaja Palaces but on top of that, Cox and Kings was the perfect host.  The organisation was absolutely perfect and there was one climax after the other. They managed to surprise me and the whole group, day after day with fabulous activities and delicious food, and even if you’re not an emotional type of guy, you might shed a few tears at the end your stay when you’re playing Polo on an Elephant with the Clarsach players in the background??.  Truly ‘Incredible India’.
