Dear Industry Colleagues
Welcome to a new look of our award-winning newsletter 'Creatively Yours'.

Today, the 21st of April 2017 is a very special day in the journey of Creative Travel. Today we turn 40!

This is a tremendous milestone in our history.

As we grew as a company, we came to a realisation that our love lay, in showcasing engaging and unique experiences across the countries we cover. We are a family owned business, but professionally managed. Our Vision is “To truly be the best at creating memorable and authentic travel experiences in the regions we cover”. Our Core Values are of Trust & Integrity; Curiosity; Accountability; Customer Focus; Intentionally Unconventional and Togetherness.Our role is to create stories for our guests, stories of love, of excitement of wonder. We at Creative Travel are proud of our history, its legacy and excited about our future.

We thank all our friends, partners and family across the world for their love and support in our 40 year long journey. Without all of you, we would not have gotten here.

Take care,

Have a Creative Day!

Joint Managing Director
What People Say About Us
I just wanted to let you know that Barry and I are now safely home after enjoying what can only be described as the holiday of a lifetime. The holiday which you and the Creative Travel team put together following the family wedding in Mamallapuram meant that our three weeks in India were fantastic. So many different sights and experiences!! And it was very reassuring to be contacted by the Creative staff from time to time to make sure everything was going well. The hotels we stayed in were all good – but we especially enjoyed the Jungle Retreat in the Mudumalai National Park and the wildlife reserve. We went on a couple of safaris and saw elephants, sloth bears, cibets, bison, wild boar and several types of deer including the minute mouse deer. But the highlight was catching site of a leopard just after it had killed a deer. We even had a visitation to our bungalow accommodation by a huge bull elephant who just wandered through the retreat (we saw the evidence from a video camera the next morning and were amazed that he hadn’t woken us!)

We also really enjoyed the luxurious Kumarakon Lake Resort and Xandari Pearl hotels and the houseboat trip – all of which were so relaxing.

We’re really hoping to go back again in the future and sample some of the sights of Northern India, but for now will live on the memories (and photos) that we have.

Creative turns 40!
Today is a significant milestone in our history. Reaching this milestone is an achievement for any organisation. We are so proud, excited and blessed for so many achievements we have had along the journey.

We would like to share a bit of the history where we started from. For from our past evolves our future.

Creative Travel was founded by Ram Kohli in 1977. He wasn’t driven by the desire to run a business, but rather a passion to show the world the best India had to offer. Ours is a story of a vision anda passion that went against all conventional norms. Ours is a very personal story.
