Would you take part in an ancient ritual in the amazingly located temple? How about sleeping in the Indian maharaja palace or in the stunning Balinese villa? Would you accept a dinner invitation from the simple local family after having a gourmet meal in the high-class sunset restaurant the night before? What about going through the muddy jungle taking as a reward a refreshing shower in the hidden waterfall?

Meet Our TEAM
Born in India, as a first-year student in a respected Hotel Management School in Shannon, Ireland, Shubho wasn’t sure how to properly cook basmati rice. Thanks to his passion for a good food, appetite for discovery combined with surprising determination in improving his skills and genuine joy in sharing the good things with others -not only has he become Master Chef among his friends and family but back in 2006, he created DLI Travel. A travel company where the “customers” are called “friends” and all the elements of the itineraries leading to the authentic travel experiences are carefully handpicked and tested, like the ingredients of the gourmet dish which unique taste you will always remember.
As a fresh graduate, she was sitting on a plane to Jamaica knowing that her life would never be the same. When she was boarding the plane to Singapore she was convinced that she is just about starting a new chapter in her life. Every time Ania boards a long-haul flight to Delhi, Kolkata, Bali, Bangkok, Havana, Florida she smiles to herself wondering what adventures the life prepared for her this time. As DLI Travel co-founder, she uses her own adventures to make every itinerary an authentic and deep travel experience.

Being lost on holidays with her family as a seven-year-old girl didn’t discourage Anita from discovering the world. On contrary, as grown up she has travelled even further reaching such faraway lands as India, Thailand or Cambodia. Now, as a part of DLI Travel family, she fully enjoys bringing those incredible destinations closer to everyone looking for authentic travel experiences.

When she was a little girl, she was even afraid to go outside her garden. But growing up she understood that what the unknown fascinates her as she has loved adventures. And where are the best adventures? Bingo! She started to discover the world – she was living in England, studying in Spain and she tries to explore as much as she can. One of the best experience she has? Climbing mountains with the Bedouins and sleeping on a desert in Jordan. She survived. And now her garden isn’t a mystery.
