Luxury Indian Ocean Holidays

A tapestry of watercolour islands

Indian Ocean

The tropical waters of the Indian Ocean are home to some of the most wildly beautiful destinations on earth. The Maldives doesn’t need much introduction – the name alone is enough to conjure up images of palm-speckled beaches and vibrant turquoise waters, baked in year-round sunshine. Made up of more than 1,000 islands, most of them uninhabited, the Maldives gives you the full paradise island experience – most of its luxury resorts are on their own private isle.

Mauritius has the beaches, of course, and classic Indian Ocean beauty – but also comes with a side of super-fresh seafood, sublime diving and unique cuisine (French meets Creole meets Chinese). If you like a little history with your beach break, Sri Lanka’s fascinating past has left it chock-full of sightseeing opportunities, from Galle’s walled old town to the Anuradhapura temples. 

The Seychelles is the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean: a chain of desert islands topped with palm beaches, mountains and rainforests sheltering endangered indigenous species.
Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is a pear-shaped island off the south-east coast of India. Its size makes day-tripping easy, with beach resorts, colonial cities, Buddhist temples and elephant sanctuaries in easy reach.

I would recommend adding a private tour to the beginning or end of your stay. There's so much to see in Sri Lanka, but transfers can be quite long from the beach hotels. Private tours are a great way to see the highlights and you'll see so much local life as you drive through villages en route.

You are in for an exotic treat in Mauritius. Dishes come with a variety of Creole, Chinese, French and Indian influences. Being an island, the seafood is, of course, to die for. Creole curries are popular as are spicy, Indian-inspired curries; just ask for an extra dollop of sour cream with them if you prefer to cool things down. To wash it all down, Mauritian rum is right for the job! You can find it in all sorts of delicious flavours, including vanilla and cinnamon.

Mauritius is home to beaches you can only dream about, with pristine white sands and turquoise waters. For the more adventurous, there’s Grand Baie beach with its variety of watersports and lively buzz. For that dreamy beach, head to Belle Mare Plage, where you’ll find 10 kilometres of talc-white sands.
