Relaxation

We all live busy lives and so finding the time and the right place to relax is not always easy.

Every now and then we need to grab a book, treat ourselves to a spa treatment and spend a few days unwinding. On a holiday, relaxation is an essential ingredient but we all relax in different ways. 

Travel to a remote corner of the world and find yourself on a deserted beach at Vamizi Island, before watching the sunset with a glass of local hooch or stay at a family-friendly resort such as Inialia, Phuket where the children can roam free, learn to dive, surf or even camp out under the stars. Or indulge yourself with a Maldives beach holiday. Talk to our team of experts and tell them how you like to unwind and we’ll find you the perfect place in which to do it.

Wellness and Spa holidays

Wellness holidays focus on your health and treat you from the inside out. Not only will you feel rejuvenated, rebalanced and de-stressed but you can also benefit from a complete health reboot and bags of energy. Just a few simple changes to your lifestyle can make a world of difference to your health and wellbeing.

Spa holidays, on the other hand, offer pampering and pure indulgence. We can tailor-make properties to cater for your every spa need, from Balinese massages, spa pools and an array of relaxing treatments.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.

Illona Cross

Born in a small South African town, I have always followed my passion for nature and discovery. After studying Nature Conservation in Pretoria, I was one of the first women to complete a very tough cadetship in the Natal Parks Board. It was here where I cut my teeth in African wildlife management. My desire to see more led me to work as a guide for AndBeyond, first in South Africa, then in Tanzania as the company expanded. Here, I lived and worked in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro, guiding and running safari camps.

Amy Waters

After my degree in Fine Art I didn’t really know what career I wanted or what path I would take. The only thing I knew is that having spent a summer in America it had given me the desire to explore and see as many places as possible before becoming a grown up and entering the real world.
