Start your Journey
Destination 1: Abu Dhabi
Stretching for miles along the shore of the Persian Gulf, the Corniche helps define Abu Dhabi both geographically and as a holiday destination. We love this beachfront boulevard, lined with parks, luxury hotels, entertainment venues and upmarket dining. The views from Breakwater Point are spectacular, outlining Abu Dhabi with the glittering skyline on one side and the shimmering gulf on the other.
Destination 2: Seychelles
With miles of remote, untouched shores, lush, tropical flowers, and exotic wildlife, we love living out our stranded-on-an-island fantasy on holiday in the Seychelles. Here you can pack a picnic lunch and explore striking ribbons of bright white sand flanked by turquoise waters, palm-fringed jungles, and sculpted granite boulders; your only companions shoals of jewel-toned fish and ancient, sleepy-eyed sea turtles. Even mother nature calls this paradise.
Destination 3: Seychelles
Explore the beautiful island of Praslin. With it's fascinating flora and bird life, you will never want to leave. Discover Vallee de Mai National Park and be on the lookout for the famous black parrot and Coco de Mer nut. Praslin is also home to Anse Lazio beach, voted in the top ten beach's in the world, sit back, relax, and unwind in true island paradise.
