Navigating the Indian Ocean isn't always easy and understanding what one island 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 diving and snorkeling adventures, whilst the archipelago’s size and diversity mean there is an island for everyone, from honeymooners and families to night club and spa worshippers. In the Seychelles
, granitic boulders fight for space with lush tropical vegetation that tumbles into the waves. Some of the world’s most coveted resorts can be found here. 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.
