Depart the UK from your chosen airport.
On arrival in Mauritius, you will be met at the airport and driven to your hotel, where you will check in for five nights. Your time here can be spent doing as much or as little as you like. If you want to keep busy, you can keep your days filled with water sports, cycling and yoga each morning but if you are here to relax then sit back by the pool with a cocktail and soak in the wonderful ocean views. On your fourth day, we’ve included a catamaran cruise – sailing along the shore with views of the scarlet sunset splashed across the sky is sure to be a highlight of your trip.
You’ll be staying at the Paradise Cove Hotel, a lovely 5* boutique hotel. Part of the ‘Small Luxury Hotels of the World’ group, this property and it’s staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are airy and modern, while still retaining a charming atmosphere that really is echoed around the whole resort, from the four classy restaurants to the beachside bar.
If you want to make your stay here really romantic, there are so many ways to create a special moment – think stargazing on the jetty, dinner on the sand or even a trip out to the Bernache & Ambre Islands. If you want to add anything extra special, just ask.
After breakfast, you will be driven back to the airport in time for your flight to the Seychelles. Arriving a few hours later you’ll be driven to your hotel on the main island. You’ll be staying at the Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, the perfect place to relax and soak up the spectacular views of the Seychelles.
The Seychelles is a stunning collection of paradise islands, with white sands, luxurious hotels and a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll have a whole week to explore the beautiful island of Mahe, where soft beaches sit alongside lush jungle and coconut palms sway in the breeze. There is even more beauty below the water – colourful reefs filled with clouds of pink and yellow fish, where manta rays glide slowly past.
You’ll be staying at the Maia Luxury Resort & Spa which has sweeping ocean views and individual villas that are perfect for a private and luxurious stay. Enjoy your private pool while soaking up the vista – turquoise water and pale beaches as far as the eye can see. You’ll be staying on an all inclusive basis, which incudes all your delicious meals and beverages but goes even further. You can relax with daily yoga sessions or discover the incredible underwater world of the Seychelles with unlimited scuba diving.
After breakfast, you’ll be driven back to the airport for your flight home.
Mauritius has a mild tropical climate all year round, with not much variation in temperature. November to April is generally a little more humid with June to September being slightly cooler. The higher you climb into the lush plateau of the island, the cooler it will become, but around the beaches, you can usually expect warm and sunny weather.
The Seychelles has two main seasons: the wet and hot monsoon season from November to March, brings rain and hot weather, as well as ensuring the islands are lush and green. From April to October, it is much drier, peaking in July and August, when the temperatures average 27 degrees. During this time the water can be a little choppy.
