St. Barts

With romance bursting from its seams, St. Barts is the Caribbean’s most elite. Imagine streets lined with designer exclusive shopping and unique French inspired gourmet cafes.

The Maldives has grown its fame from not only it’s beautiful luxurious beaches, but also the fact that it will one day be gone. The 1000+ coral islands that make up the Maldives are slowly sinking, there is no timeline or set date but, we believe that everyone should experience this piece of paradise before it’s gone.

Surrounded by a protected coral reef the diving and snorkeling here is beyond world class and the locals are highly experience in the gin-clear waters.

The sandy shoreline is scattered with a variety of hotels, villas and resorts to choose from, all boasting levels of world class luxury standard.

Join in on some fun at the busy local fish market in Male, or soak up some ray on the countless white sand beaches. The Maldives is, and will continue to be (for an unknown amount of time) an unrivalled luxurious island.

There is no photoshop necessary, the sand really is that white, the water that clear and the rainforest more lush that your dreams could image.

Home to the unique Giant Aldabra tortoises and Morne Seychellois National Park there is something for everyone here. You can find ultra luxury all over the islands, including a few well known names: Hilton, Four Season and Banyan, as well as lavish villas and bungalows. The ambiance is oozing romance, with gourmet seafood candle lit dinners available on a number of beaches, it’s no wonder they call this the “island of paradise”.

It has been rated #1 Honeymoon Destination by US News & World Report and listed multiple times as a luxury island top destinations.

The island itself is tiny, at 6 miles long and 2 miles wide, but that does not stop it from offering a world of luxurious attractions and opulent accommodations. Snorkeling and diving is available right outside your doorstep, or hike inland to experience some of Bora Bora’s iconic summits.

The French Polynesia culture is still very vibrant on the island and a wonderful compliment to your relaxing, restorative Bora Bora experience.
