Think of a picture-perfect, idyllic location in which to enjoy a romantic interlude with your other half and the Indian Ocean must surely be close to the top of your list, if not right at the top. Whether it’s a honeymoon, special anniversary, proposal or simply “just because…”, this spectacular area of the world has all the ingredients to provide a memorable backdrop conducive to romance, including palm-fringed beaches, gin-clear aquamarine water and warm, relaxing sunshine, complemented by the gracious service provided at our super collection of resorts, all of which are located on some of the world’s finest beaches.
Almost wherever you go in the Indian Ocean, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy romantic barefoot walks along perfect beaches of powder-soft sand, while romantic destination dining is another popular way to enjoy quality time with your loved one, and there are options to dine privately under a blanket of stars on a torch-lit beach – with a dedicated butler and private chef on hand to attend to your every wish – or else in the privacy of your guest accommodation or on a deserted private island, enjoying a gourmet picnic and expertly chilled bottle of the finest Champagne. Alternatively, enjoy your Champagne on a private sunset cruise before a lavish, romantic dinner. Spa-lovers will be spoilt for choice with the array of resorts we feature that boast couple’s treatment suites, and if chilling out and relaxing is high on your wish list, there’s no better place to do this than in a luxurious, peaceful spa, where expert therapists will make light work of distressing and relaxing both of you with a series of pampering spa treatments, therapies and rituals. For many more ideas or to arrange an extra-special experience while in resort, do call our Travel Consultants, who would be delighted to make the necessary arrangements for you.
