BANGARAM ISLAND RESORT
- Address:Bangaram,LakshadweepPlace:BangaramCountry:IndiaZip Code:682003
Called sometimes the Jewel of the Lakshadweep, Bangaram Island is an sparsely populated haven. Barring the occasional visitor from nearby Agatti (where the airport is situated), the only residents are the resort staff.
Teardrop shaped, thick with cool coconut plantations and encircled by a corona of silver sand, Bangaram lives up to every 'desert island' fantasy you've ever had.
The inspiration for our accommodations at Bangaram turned out to be right next door. In the fisherfolks' huts of the Lakshadweep, we found a dwelling that was pleasant, airy and made ingenious use of natural materials.
We kept the basic design, but added modern plumbing, real beds and so forth.
The peace of the island creates the perfect atmosphere for your mind and body to, in a very real sense, shake hands again.
This synchronised massage is one among the many therapies that you can experience at Bangaram Island.
Apart from diving, you can try your hand at a host of activities, ranging from the interesting to the exhilerating. Night fishing on the deep sea can be the experience of a lifetime. You can also go kayaking, windboarding, surfing and more. (Not that there's plenty not to do...try watching the palm trees grow for two hours before lunch, just to work up an appetite...)
Climatic conditions are similar to that of Kerala coast. Average rainfall is 1600mm a year with the major share from the southwest monsoon.
Almost all islands experience tropical climate with temperature ranging from 25-35°C and humidity ranging from 70-76% during most parts of the year. March, April and May are the hottest months, but the island stays cool under its lush canopy of coconut palms.
The best diving is from November to May. The water temperature is around 26°C. (From Oct-Nov you can be sure to spot the Manta Rays feeding.)
