Le Reunion . Maldives . Mauritius .

Seychelles . Sri Lanka 

If you are looking for luxury and indulgence, then these tropical islands could be the perfect choice. The Indian Ocean is great for a multi-destination trip – whether it be island hopping in the Seychelles, or combining the culture and wildlife of Sri Lanka with a luxury stay in an over-water villa in the Maldives, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. Vibrant cultures and romantic landscapes make this a favourite for couples and honeymooners, but there are also options for those looking for something a bit more off the beaten track.

 

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE INDIAN OCEAN:
  • Go island hopping in the Seychelles. Home to over 100 islands, make sure you visit as many as you can! Don't miss Cousin Island, a beautiful nature reserve and home to some of the Seychelles’ rarest birds, and Praslin’s Vallee de Mai, known as the original ‘Garden of Eden’.

  • Spot Whale Sharks in the Maldives! Diving in the South Ari Atoll, which is a Marine Protected Area, is one of the places to spot these gentle giants.

  • Visit Black River Gorges National Park in Mauritius. For those who love the outdoors there are a number of hiking trails - the ideal opportunity to see panoramic views of the landscape, including waterfalls, gorges and peaks.

  • Dine under the stars in the Maldives. For a truly magical moment head to your own deserted island for an exclusive meal cooked by your own private chef.

  • Climb Sigiriya (Lion Rock), one of Sri Lanka's seven World Heritage Sites, for incredible views and an insight in to the ancient palace which once sat atop the rock.

  • Take a helicopter ride over La Reunion! This is the best way to view the amazing Jurassic Park-like landscapes of this unique Indian Ocean island. Don't miss one of the world's most active volcanoes - Piton de la Fournaise.

  • Visit La Digue in the Seychelles. This dreamy island is best explored on bike – enjoy a tour of the fascinating plantation at L’Union Estate, meet its giant tortoise residents and then head to Anse Source d’Argent, considered one of the best beaches in the world.

BEST TIME TO VISIT:

The Indian Ocean enjoys year-round sunshine with many regions reaching highs of 30°C. January to April are generally the driest months in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, while Mauritius experiences the driest weather conditions in October to November. It does however all depend on where you are going, and which area of that country you are visiting.

LA REUNION

The remote French island of La Reunion sits between Mauritius and Madagascar – a complete contrast to the other Indian Ocean islands, this is a place for those with a more adventurous spirit! The volcanic landscape is one that needs to be explored – visit the spectacular crater-villages and one of the world’s most active volcanoes.

  MALDIVES

This picture-perfect paradise is home to over a thousand tiny islands with powdery white sands and crystal clear waters. Luxury resorts are often home to beautiful over-water villas, perfect for an exclusive island hideaway. Experience an underwater world that is home to an amazing array of tropical fish and breath-taking coral reefs.

 MAURITIUS

A beach lover’s dream, this palm-fringed island has tranquil beaches and crystal lagoons, with dramatic volcanic backdrops. World-class hotels, pristine golf courses and great watersports mean there is something for everyone. If you can pull yourself away from the beaches, inland you will find a paradise of lush hills, valleys and colourful villages.

SEYCHELLES

With over 100 beautiful tropical islands, island-hopping is definitely the best way to see the Seychelles! The tranquillity and untouched natural beauty of these dreamy islands mean it is the perfect place for relaxation. Mahe is the largest of the islands, lined with sugar white sands and mystical granite peaks rising from the ocean.

SRI LANKA

Steeped in myth and mystery, this beautiful country is rich in tradition and culture. Endless golden beaches sit alongside timeless temples, lush rainforests and a whole array of exotic wildlife and mountain vistas. Hop on board one of the colonial-era trains making their way through tea plantations and rice paddy fields, and explore one of the many national parks.
