Dubai, Sri Lanka & Maldives

Sprawling Dubai soars beyond the clouds with its distinctive skyline dominated by imposing skyscrapers (including the world’s tallest), its striking blend of Arabian tradition and contemporary world-class facilities an icon of the modern generation. A showcase of divine luxury, Dubai offers a multitude of stunning hotels and resorts, stunning souks and white beaches as well as world-class shopping and nightlife.  

From Dubai head to Sri Lanka, a teardrop-shaped island off the southern coast of India has become one of the world’s fastest growing holiday destinations.

Sri Lanka possesses a number of coastal resorts from which to enjoy the refreshing waves of the Indian Ocean lapping up against gorgeous beaches, with the opportunity to indulge in surfing at one of the island’s watersport hotspots. However, the island’s interior also possesses a wealth of charms, with the rolling hills housing the pleasant sight of tea plantations. Sri Lanka is also an important cultural centre, with no less than eight UNESCO heritage sites, including the important religious centre Kandy, the walled city of Galle and the old world charms of Sigiriya.

 Your final stop is the Maldives, a low-lying island paradise that is one of the world’s most romantic holiday destinations. This is the quintessential tropical getaway, where its luxury resorts – from romantic, private escapes to family-friendly centres loaded with facilities – are located on individual islands where silky soft sands are kissed by shimmering lagoons to create the quintessential tropical getaway.
