Mauritius has to be categorised as one of the most beautiful places on the planet - and it just became a whole lot more beautiful with the opening of Anahita The Resort.

For those people who can’t afford to buy abroad, but prefer the feel of having your own space, Anahita The Resort could be perfect. The residences each have large ocean frontages with verandas and plunge pools; and your own personal Villa Master and 24 hour concierge service. Perfect, for the ultimate, secluded holiday retreat.

If you’re looking for a bargain break in the Bahama’s over spring you might want to take a look at this offer from FOUR SEASONS RESORT, Great Exuma.


The offer is outlined below:

“The Castaway Getaway drops guests on a deserted beach with an umbrella, lounge chairs, beach mats and a cooler containing a gourmet picnic lunch, rum and drinks - to spend the day in their own tropical paradise. “Castaways” are outfitted with snorkel gear, a radio or cell phone, and a disposable underwater camera for their island adventure. The resort also offers a Quiet Pool on property, separate from its Active Pool, for guests seeking peace and quiet during their vacation.”

Packages start at $695 which seems very reasonable to me.
