At Lotus DMC, we have had the opportunity to do one very important thing: select forward-thinking, service-focused and highly experienced professionals from the destination management industry and bring them together into one organization. 


Headquartered in Cochin, Kerala, with additional offices across India, in Europe, and in the U.S., we offer a full range of tours and travel-related services across India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, and the Maldives. Our team is the driving force behind the innovation of our tours and the commitment we have to providing an exceptional level of service. With more than 70 years of destination management experience represented by our directors, Lotus DMC brings together in-depth market expertise with proven tour and service customization to give our tour operator partners precisely what they need to succeed. We open the door to truly local cultural experiences not included in standard and routine tours, all at excellent prices. Thus, we are privileged to be the destination management services firm of choice in established and emerging markets.
