Hi, The Samudram package will be good option as per your need given above. You can book it online from official tourism site of Lakshadweep. It's starts from Kochi and ends at Kochi. This package also includes your permit n all automatically. If you like to go separately, can book from Kochi or Mangalore but for that you required to obtain permit by own which is little tedious task. Booking hotels in advance ll work but those are highly expensive So suggest go for Samudram Package Hope above information will help you in planning your trip? Should you need more info can DM. I visited there on a bike ride taking my bike to Lakshadweep Thank You See You on the Road...πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
