Indian Ocean Inspiration
Posted on 12th Jun 2015
We love the Indian Ocean. There’s nothing quite like the long stretches of powdery white sand and crystal clear waters that you find in Mauritius and the Maldives. We’ve put together our top 5 reasons why we think you should consider a luxury trip to one of these beautiful locations.
1. You can now fly direct to both places.
We know that with young children you might feel hesitant to commit to a long haul flight. However, you can now get direct flights from London to both Mauritius and the Maldives, which is sure to take the stress out of the journey. Pick an overnight flight and (fingers crossed) you and your kids will all get a good amount of shut eye, allowing you to hop off the plane feeling refreshed and ready for your adventure.
2. The beaches are unbeatable
Both Mauritius and the Maldives boast some of the world’s most stunning beaches; they really are postcard-perfect. The beaches in Mauritius often have shallow waters, making them perfect for young paddlers and swimmers. Kids can also get in the water safely in the Maldives, with many of our hotels offering kids’ activities such as safe snorkelling. Whether you fancy getting stuck into the water-sports, or lazing around in a hammock, these idyllic beaches will not disappoint.
3. The adventures aren’t just limited to the beach
Our hotels are hand-picked with kids in mind, meaning that they all offer an eclectic range of activities that includes more than just beach-related fun. In addition to their beautiful blue seas, several of our Maldivian hotels offer activities such as coconut painting, yoga classes and outdoor cinema viewings (to name just a few).
4. The food
Seafood fans will be in heaven in either Mauritius or the Maldives, with both places offering exceptionally fresh, exotic fish. If your kids aren’t big fish eaters then our hotels are sure to have something for them too. Many of the hotels have multiple restaurants within the resorts which offer a wide range of options, from Asian to European cuisine.
5. Down time
There’s a reason why pictures of Mauritius and the Maldives pop into people’s heads when they think about their perfect, luxury escape. With their impossibly beautiful surroundings, both islands are ideal destinations for truly getting away from reality. Make the most of the babysitting services and kids clubs that our hotels offer and allow yourself to fully switch off and relax.
