Tropical island holidays are so special, heavenly and unreal that you have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming. Sugary white beaches, tall swaying palm trees, rocky coves, endless blue skies, warm lake-like oceans and the heavy sounds of silence. All the qualities we all need when we are seeking a break from our usual (harried) life routines.
A journey in style is what you need to rejuvenate your spirit and get your body moving and relaxing at the same time. Start a tropical island holiday on Mnemba Island in Zanzibar, a paradise isle set aside for just 20 visitors at a time in 10 sea front chalets. Go snorkelling with dolphins and watch green turtles lay their eggs in the white sands. Explore some sensational dive sites and do a new scuba course to enrich your underwater knowledge. This is indeed an intimate destination where you can feel quite alone and at peace.
The Seychelles archipelago also offers unique island holidays in a tropical setting. Journey in Style recommends a few days of heaven at Le Domaine de La Réserve Hotel in the north-east of Praslin Island - right on Anse Petit Cour bay. Walk directly onto the hotel's private beach daily to go swimming and snorkelling. What a fantastic combination of turquoise oceans, white beaches and lush green mountain forests in this tropical island setting! Enjoy a free boat trip to Curieuse Island, and hire a kayak to discover shallow lagoon waters around the hotel where a beautiful coral reef lies hidden. Arrange a rental car every day to explore the beauty of Praslin or venture to one of the nearby islands.
Another tropical island paradise you simply have to experience is the plush Beachcomber Le Victoria Hotel in Mauritius. Picture one of the most stunning locations ever on a lovely stretch of beach in Pointe Aux Piments on the west coast of Mauritius. This exquisite 4-star hotel is spread out within verdant tropical gardens where you can always find a quiet spot just for you. Appreciate the most spectacular crimson-orange sunsets at Le Victoria Hotel and try some of the exciting water sports on offer - or head into Port Louis for some cultural and historical tours. Take time to visit Grand Bay for a night of dancing or keep yourself busy with a game of volleyball or football at the hotel.
As if this isn’t enough to relax those limbs and eyes, now we urge you to try the Mozambique Bazaruto Archipelago for some authentic tropical island nirvanas. &Beyond Benguerra Island is a luxury retreat on an exquisite island where horse rides and long walks contribute to your newfound vibrancy and happiness. Your rustic chic suite nestles in dense indigenous vegetation under tall coconut palms and the natural environment sweeps inside to bring you light and warmth. Enjoy your deep bath every evening and sway in a hammock after delicious meals prepared by a dedicated chef. Set deep in cleverly created patches of shade, comfortable loungers beckon guests to relax around the pool while drinking in the ocean views.
