Which Airlines do you use?
We work with all the major airlines flying to the Seychelles.
Typically for the Seychelles we will use British Airways for direct flights.
There are currently twice-weekly flights from Heathrow (Wednesdays and Saturdays) direct to Mahe using the Dreamliner.
The flying time for direct flights is around 10 hours, making the Seychelles a little shorter flying time than going to South East Asia.
We also commonly use Emirates via Dubai, Qatar Airways via Doha and Etihad via Abu Dhabi. These all allow stopover options in the Arabian Gulf to create a multi-centre holiday.
Regional connections from across the UK are available.
This particular Dubai and Seychelles holiday is almost always based on flights with Emirates, although Etihad would be another option.
Which Hotels do you use?
We're careful with our choice of resorts in the Seychelles, but we're guided by our customers also. If you have some preferred hotels, just let us know.
We specialise in boutique hotels and so we will often suggest some of our favourite smaller hotels where we think these will be suitable.
Do I need a visa for the Seychelles & Dubai?
If you're travelling on British Passports, no visa is required for stays of up to a month in Seychelles or Dubai.
Please double check before travel however, as visa requirements are subject to change at any time.
How long have you been organising holidays to the Seychelles & Dubai?
We've been organising tailor made holidays to the Seychelles & Dubai since 2009.
We use a very reliable local partner in the Seychelles for our tours and transfers and to assist our clients in the Seychelles. They are a family owned company who are one of the most established and respected local travel companies.
We keep up to date with developments in the Seychelles & Dubai with regular visits and through our local contacts.
When is the best time to visit the Seychelles & Dubai?
The driest time of year to visit the Seychelles is normally between June and September. Bear in mind however that Dubai can be extremely hot during July and August in particular.
April to May and October to November can be the best value times of year to visit Dubai and the Seychelles as these are shoulder-season periods in the Seychelles and not so hot in Dubai.
Mahé is the Seychelles largest island, home to the capital Victoria, 90% of the population and some of the best resorts and beaches in The Seychelles.
Mahe has some wonderful fine talcum powder beaches and is home to two of the Seychelles finest hotels: The Banyan Tree, set on a very fine beach, and the Maia Luxury Resort on Anse Louis - one of the finest resorts in the Indian Ocean.
Mahe also offers some great self catering options such as the great value Chalets D'Anse Forbans.
Just a 40 minute traditional schooner ride from Praslin, the short trip to La Digue Island feels like stepping back in time, to a very traditional Seychelles Island, where Creole culture is strong.
La Digue’s verdant hills overlook crystal clear waters and white sand beaches, dotted with pink and grey granite boulders.
The colours of the sunsets on the rocks, sand and hills of La Digue are often an abiding memory. La Digue is a great choice for those looking for a low-key, idyllic more traditional Seychelles holiday Seychelles holiday.
