Hotel of the month /The St Regis Mauritus Resort

Fanned by sea breezes and fronted by an idyllic white sand beach, the Indian Ocean's first St.Regis hotel welcomes guests with exceptional amenities and impeccable butler service.

Take to the waves with professional trainers and discover your kite surfing skills on one of the most exhilirating spots in the world, One Eye - so named because when a surfer finds the sweet spot in which to catch the perfect wave they will see a small hole - located at the resort.

For families, the turquoise waters and white sands of Le Morne Beach are the perfect backdrop for aquatic adventures, from complimentary glass-bottom boat tours over the reef in search of angelfish and blue-striped snappers to sailing trips along the coastline. A highlight is sure to be the private speed boat tour to Tamarin Bay, where children will be delighted at the chance to swim and snorkel with dolphins in their natural habitat.

The Seychelles/

 

"Unsurprisingly, the main attraction to holidaying in the Seychelles is the infamous white sand beaches peppered with huge boulders. However my trip to Constance Ephélia on Mahé and Constance Lémuria on Praslin showed me that there is more to do at this paradise destination than first assumed."
