Indian Ocean

Navigating the Indian Ocean isn't always easy and understanding what one resort has over another is hard when they all imitate paradise, which can make choosing the destination for your perfect Indian Ocean holiday difficult.  But to those who take the time to consider holidays in the Indian Ocean, like we do, differences abound.

A flight across the coral dots that comprise the Maldives reveals the simple allure of the ocean's waters.  The reefs provide exceptional territory for cruising, diving and snorkeling adventures, which makes it a superb ocean holiday destination.  In the Seychelles, granitic boulders fight for space with lush tropical vegetation that tumbles into the waves.  Indian Ocean holidays don't get better than this.  Madagascar throws in a wildlife dimension while Mauritius retains much of the Creole authenticity that makes this Island, where India meets Africa, a culturally rich haven. Melting pots all, the Indian Ocean is easily accessible with numerous direct flights from all over the world as well as sybaritic stopovers in the hub that is Dubai.

To fly across the coral dots that comprise the Maldives reveals the simple allure of the Indian Ocean, its cobalt blues shot through with smudges of creamy sand.  Low-slung palms cut elegant silhouettes as the sun completes its arc, the sea so flat it's as if one can see the curvature of the earth.  Whether you are in search of escapism or a natural playground for the children, luxury Maldives holidays offer something for everyone.

A diverse melting pot of culture, religion and topography, Mauritius is an island of stunning contrasts hidden deep in the Indian Ocean. From a central plateau punctuated by volcanic mountain ranges and tropical savannah, the landscape transforms into idyllic white sandy beaches lined by swaying palms, giving way to a coastline almost entirely surrounded by coral reefs and a wealth of marine life. Indeed, so taken was he by the island's exceptional beauty, Mark Twain wasn't far wrong when he proclaimed "you gather the idea that Mauritius was made first and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius".

Stretching like a scattering of emerald jewels in a turquoise ocean, the breathtakingly beautiful Seychelles islands are surely the most romantic destination there is. With powder-white sand beaches, crystalline waters that wash over coral reefs, and verdant green rainforest, the 115 pristine islands - some grand and granitic, others tiny coral outcrops - span nearly one million square kilometres of the Indian Ocean east of Kenya.
