Fly from the UK to Dubai where you'll transfer to your chosen hotel for a four-night stay. Springing up from the Arabian Desert seemingly overnight, Dubai is an innovative city that goes out of its way to impress. This modern metropolis is all about extremes and firsts; it's home to the world's first seven-star hotel, the world's tallest building, the world's most iconic man-made island, and the world's largest shopping mall.
Follow this up with a trip to escape to paradise with an indulgent stay at Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel. Scattered in the impossibly clear Indian Ocean, the stunning Seychelles are about as far away from reality as you can get.
4 nights - Hyatt Place Jumeirah - Dubai
The iconic emirate of Dubai is renowned for its shopping scene, captivating modern architecture, and vibrant nightlife scene. It's often described as Las Vegas without the casinos, due to its super-sized hotels, amusement parks, aquariums, designer cars, and luxury yachts. Relax on the golden sandy shores of Jumeirah Beach and the Persian Gulf or spend time on the tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah to discover glitzy beach clubs and decadent nightclubs with DJ sets.
The tallest structure and building in the world is a must-visit; the Burj Khalifa boasts 160 stories, while the adjoining man-made Burj Khalifa Lake is home to the spectacular Dubai Fountain with its water jets and lights choreographed to music. Pay a visit to Ras Al Khor nature reserve to see the amazing pink flamingos and migratory birds or encounter the flora, fauna, and falcons up close at Dubai Desert Conservation Centre.
7 nights - Coral Strand Smart Choice - Seychelles
Scattered in the impossibly clear Indian Ocean, the stunning Seychelles are about as far away from reality as you can get. Think deserted beaches with sugary sand, rainbow coral reefs, ancient rainforests, exotic wildlife and misty waterfalls. This is exactly how paradise islands look in pictures – and it’s every bit as gorgeous in real life.
There isn’t a great deal to do here besides kick back and luxuriate in the first class hotels, so it should come as no surprise that the Seychelles are loved by newlyweds. Spend languid days relaxing and taking in the awesome scenery.
Wile away magical evenings gazing at sublime sunsets and starry skies. Secluded, seductive and indulgent; the Seychelles are quite simply paradise found.
