Created in partnership with THE TURQUOISE HOLIDAY COMPANY
Who is The Turquoise Holiday Company?
The Turquoise Holiday Company is an award-winning tour operator who creates luxury and bespoke holidays. Established in 2002 by three friends – all of whom found it difficult to find fun and romantic holidays that would suit every type of traveller – today the team of experts don’t recommend anywhere they haven’t been. In the space of two decades, the team has planned over 10,000 honeymoons, so it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about what goes into making a memorable trip. Now, the brand offers a wide range of bespoke holidays around the world, including quick getaways to the Mediterranean, multi-generation celebrations in the Caribbean, and family safari adventures.
It has recently teamed up with Constance Hotels & Resorts who has something for everyone, including six hotels across the Indian Ocean islands of the Maldives, the Seychelles and Mauritius, plus one sister brand property, C Mauritius. Each resort has fine-tuned the details, so you can expect excellent food and drink, kids’ clubs and a wide range of activities on offer. Constance is all about great places, people, service and experiences.
What To Expect During A Trip
GASTRONOMY: Each Constance resort has a team of expert chefs and sommeliers on staff, so guests can enjoy everything from family dining to romantic meals on the beach. Try local island dishes, enjoy a champagne breakfast overlooking the ocean, and book in for exclusive wine tastings.
SPA: Each Constance spa is designed with wellness and relaxation in mind. From the spa village in the Seychelles to the over-water spa in the Maldives, guests can unwind in excellent facilities and enjoy a range of treatments.
