No matter how far-flung the island, we’ve found the perfect resort for your stay in the Indian Ocean.

Discover the wild shores of Mauritius. At the cultural crossroads between Africa and Asia in the middle of the ocean, discover the island’s fantastic food and beautiful beaches with a stay at one of its best resorts. Book the All Inclusive Zilwa Attitude in the north of the island for authentic cuisine, desert-island chic rooms and a pair of complimentary flip flops (useful for exploring its stunning beach). If you’re visiting the Maldives, you’ll soon discover that nearly every resort sits upon its own private island. For a fun group or family holiday, head to colourful Kandima, a resort with the largest kids club in the Maldives – and the longest pool. For All Inclusive luxury, try the private beach and overwater villas at Constance Moofushi Resort. Been there, done that? The lesser-visited Seychelles are the epitome of barefoot luxury. The Banyan Tree Resort was once a celebrity haunt. It’s now an all-villa property set in lush forested hills above the beach, and you’re invited.
