The islands of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles, Mauritius and the Maldives offer the closest approximation of paradise to be found on earth, boasting between them a large proportion of the world’s top resorts and remote beach hideaways. The wildlife-rich islands of the Seychelles can be combined to create a varied itinerary hopping from one to another, whilst Mauritius offers a blend of African, Arabian and colonial cultures, with plenty for the adventurous to do away from the beaches. And for absolute barefoot luxury, nothing beats the pristine desert islands of the Maldives.

  • Maldives


    There is nowhere else on earth quite like the Maldives. In the middle of the Indian Ocean south of Sri Lanka, over 1000 tropical, white sand islands lie loosely clustered in 26 coral-fringed atols.

  • Mauritius


    Visit Mauritius to experience paradise on Earth. With its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and lush landscapes, it offers a tropical escape like no other. Explore its rich cultural heritage, indulge in delicious cuisine, and immerse yourself in a melting pot…

  • Seychelles


    Known as the 'Galapagos of the Indian Ocean', the stunning granitic and coral islands of the Seychelles offer not only endless white sandy beaches but also fascinating flora and fauna.

    While impressions are still fresh for me, I want to say how much I enjoyed the [tour]. It took me to all sorts of places I would not easily have got to otherwise. I am left with many rich experiences to draw on for a while to come. Laurie
