February Half Term – It’s Time for Winter Sun
Posted on 26th Oct 2015
This February half term it’s time to get away for some well-deserved winter sun. We have a selection of beautiful family-friendly hotels in the Indian Ocean. Maldives and Mauritius are the perfect long-haul destination for families looking to escape the long dark nights and bitter weather of the UK and relax in 5 star resorts with 28 degree weather.
Set in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Baa Atoll, Amilla Fushi offers families a truly luxurious island escape. The hotel boasts a myriad of stylish villas, including Ocean Reef Houses perched just above the crystal clear waters and Tree Houses suspended above the lush green of the jungle. There are two specially designed areas on the island where kids can get involved in various indoor and outdoor activities. Amilla Fushi has an impressive range of accommodation options, all of which are decked with super king sized beds and private fresh water swimming pools.
