‘Once-in-a-lifetime’ experiences in India and the Indian Ocean
We currently have some excellent offers for our hotels in India and the Indian Ocean. As well as competitive rates, many hotels have included some fabulous ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experiences which reminded me of some of the wonderful times I’ve had in these special destinations.
India is one of those countries that gets under the skin and always leaves strong memories for anyone lucky enough to spend time there. My last visit was two years ago and I was blown away by the spectacular scenery, food and hospitality. On the ‘must-do’ list for many is Rajasthan, where you can arrive at your hotel in style on an elephant, marvel at the palaces of Jaipur, spot tigers and leopards in the national parks or escape to sands of the stunning Thar Desert. I will never forget a magical evening spent at The Raj Palace where after a day exploring the Palace of the Winds, we watched fireworks from the palatial courtyard while enjoying a sumptuous banquet.
Another must-see country is Sri Lanka, which is a perfect touring holiday destination. Even with just a week, I can recommend a visit to the enchanting Pinnawala elephant orphanage, climbing the ancient rocky fortress of Sigiriya or a relaxing Ayurvedic spa treatment at one of our spectacular beach resorts.
For those looking for pure relaxation, our hotels in the Indian Ocean are unbeatable. As a fanatical sailor, very little can tempt me from sailing but our luxury hotels in the Maldives are the exception! Sailing around these spectacular atolls allows me to visit our hotels and all are set on picture-perfect islands, each has its own unique character. Baros Maldives and Island Hideaway Spa Resort & Marina are diver’s paradise, stylish Valassaru and Huvafen Fushi with the world’s first underwater spa, or for pure barefoot luxury we have Coco Palm Bodu Hithi, Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu or Naladhu Maldives.
Our luxury hotels on the islands of the Seychelles and Mauritius also feature in our latest offers so have a look at these if they are on your holiday ‘wish-list’.
