Sri Lanka and Maldives
In the Maldives, OBLU by Sangeli offers the ultimate luxurious over-water suites on its adults’ only island One Banyan. Sip cocktails in the pool bar, dine on fresh seafood and marvel at the best sunsets you’ve ever seen! It really is the perfect honeymoon destination for a romantic getaway.
In Sri Lanka, there’s no shortage of picturesque beaches and spectacular scenery to escape into. Relax at Heritance Negombo‘s secluded beach area, swim in the lagoon pool and sip cocktails at the expansive rooftop bar.
Singapore and Bali
Our experts picked the vibrant city of Singapore for its bustling Hawker Markets serving up the city’s best food, as well as their impressive response to COVID-19. Sipping a Singapore Sling in Raffles Hotel will transport you body, mind and spirit far away from lockdown boredom.
In Bali, board a small luxury yacht and cruise through the Indonesian archipelago with its thousands of tiny islands offering pristine beaches, vibrant jungles, active volcanoes, mysterious lakes, cascading waterfalls and traditional villages.
Combine sightseeing in Singapore with unwinding in Bali for the perfect post-lockdown holiday.

If you’re dreaming of a luxury escape while still limiting contact with people outside your group, consider booking a private villa. You’ll have the comfort and safety of home, but the benefits of delicious catered meals and once-in-a-lifetime activities abroad.
Our experts have hand-picked Laragai House in Kenya as one the top holiday destinations post-lockdown. Set in 32 acres of bushland, it’s steeped in luxury and can comfortably accommodate 16 guests in eight bedrooms. While the on-site infinity pool and tennis court are tempting, you can’t beat the thrill of a private game drive to spot the Big Five.
