Holidays in the Indian Ocean
From cultural tours to the ultimate beach breaks on talcum powder sands – there are lots of ways to discover the idyllic islands of the Indian Ocean.
From the single-resort desert islands of the Maldives to the world-class golf and spa hotels in Mauritius; Sri Lanka’s relaxed rustic gems to the luxury hillside hideaways of the Seychelles, our range of beach accommodation in the Indian Ocean is extensive and diverse.
Private car & driver
We’re experts in tailor-making itineraries and travelling around Sri Lanka with a private car and driver is an excellent way to explore. You’ll have the flexibility to choose your own itinerary and once you arrive in your destination you can stop where you wish en route to your next hotel. Your driver will also be your guide so you’ll learn about the destinations as you travel. It’s a great option for honeymooners seeking a little adventure.
Escorted small group tours
Our relaxed small group tours with world-class local tour leaders and quality accommodation offer a more sociable way to experience the diversity of Sri Lanka. You’ll find a taster of our Sri Lanka tours on p140-143 and can find the full range in our dedicated Escorted Touring brochure.
The Indian Ocean islands are surprisingly diverse, perfect for a couple of days of adventure followed by an away-from-it-all beach break. As well as pairing destinations within the Indian Ocean, you can also combine an Indian Ocean country with another part of the world to really make the most of your holiday. Consider a stopover in futuristic Dubai for a contrasting beach stay.
