Mother Nature was very generous with these 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean. Undeniably, the beaches are the big attraction: exquisite ribbons of white sand lapped by topaz waters and backed by lush hills and big glacis boulders. But there’s much more to do than simply cracking open a bottle of champagne with the loved one in a luxurious hotel.
A luxury big five safari in Kenya's iconic Masai Mara combined with a deluxe beach stay in the picturesque Seychelles for the ultimate safari and beach holiday packed full with wildlife and watersports.
Home to unrivalled wildlife viewing and one of the world’s most impressive coastlines, there is no better place to combine a beach and safari trip than in Africa.
Lying peacefully in the Indian Ocean, one thousand miles off the East African coast the Seychelles are made up of over 100 Islands each as beautiful as the next. Simply a place to visit when looking to relax, the Seychelles is the perfect place for a luxury honeymoon or romantic escape. Private beaches, good weather and a relaxed atmosphere all contribute but it is the world class service, expertise and understanding from the hotels really make Seychelles a special honeymoon destination.
As close to paradise as is possible, the drop-dead-gorgeous Seychelles is a nation of 115 coral and granite islands scattered like jewels in the Indian Ocean. A holiday here is conducive to luxury with glamourous resorts, endless ribbons of porcelain sands, multi-hued crystalline waters, majestic cliffs, and endless diving opportunities. Little wonder that this escapist’s dream ranks as the world’s best beach spot and holiday destination for families, couples who ought to tie the knot, and honeymooners who just have.

Quite possibly the most archetypal, idyllic beach destination on the planet- the Seychelles archipelago lives up to its hype. Set across 400,000-kilometres-square of Indian Ocean, it fires the imagination with jungle trails, bird sanctuaries, lush wild interiors, impossibly white beaches, and tropical waters that are a playground for divers.
Every island offers something unique to add to your holiday. Whilst the outlying Satellite Islands such as Bird Island, Félicité Island and North Island present sun-drenched perfection, its three main islands - La Digue, Praslin and Mahé – deliver desert island dreams.
La Digue is the smallest of the trio, but makes headlines for Anse Source D'Argent, an expanse of near-deserted candy floss-coloured powdery sands, backed by eroded granite boulders and luminescent waters.
Mahé packs a punch for adventurers eager to snorkel with whale sharks, dive pristine sites, and navigate the island’s mountainous interior. At its cultural heart is Victoria, the tiny Seychelles capital, where you can visit the open-air market, relax in the botanical gardens, and play nine-holes on the grounds of a former coconut plantation. By contrast, Praslin is revered for its striking shoreline and UNESCO-listed Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve - home to the endemic and ultra-rare Coco De Mer palm tree.
For exhilarating experiences off the beaten track, seek out Seychelles warbler birds on granite outcrop Cousin Island, and spot colonies of turtles and giant tortoises at the UNESCO-listed nature sanctuary of Aldabra, home to the earth’s largest raised coral atoll.
