We know there's a ton of resorts to choose from on this classic Indian Ocean island, but Centara has raised the bar with this latest offering.
The eclectic décor echoes the tropical beauty of its surroundings; natural materials, lashings of colourful teak - the Azuri Plunge Pool Suites, in particular, proudly sit in a line, basking in their thatched-roof glory. Spend your days enjoying the many watersports in the calm waters of the lagoon, before kicking back by one of the two pools and ordering a cocktail or three at Cyan, the pool bar-cum-restaurant.
Tear yourself away from your lounger for a glass-bottomed boat trip - the marine life is worth the (sometimes) choppy waters out to sea. Fitness buffs will be pleased to hear there is a comprehensive gym area, featuring a bar that whizzes up nutritious vegetable juices and post-workout smoothies. More than likely, though, the most strenuous activity you'll experience will be strolling from the pool to the sea... and back again.
WOW FACTOR Wildlife-spotting at the Black River Gorges National Park; this pretty park protects most of the island's remaining rainforests, and the hotel is happy to organise excursions for you. A real cultural treat not to be missed.
