Idyllically beautiful, with coconut palms fringing powder-white Indian Ocean beaches and tree-covered hills, the Seychelles may be the perfect honeymoon destination.

Among a clutch of world-class hotels is the Four Seasons, a fabulously luxurious resort on Mahé. The 67 villas and suites are tucked on a hillside or dotted along the beach; all have private infinity plunge pools, glass-walled rain showers and a breezy, colonial-style decor that whispers tropical romance.

Zip down to the oh-so-pretty beach in a buggy (home also to a pool, cocktail bar and the Kannel restaurant) or head up to the hilltop to sample sunrise yoga sessions or treatments in the spa. Arrange a day trip around Mahé; go fishing; or charter a boat and explore the surrounding islands. Finish the day with cocktails at sunset and dinner in ZEZ, the resort's other glamorous restaurant.

Wow factor: The picture-perfect beach and the super-cool pool area.

Flight time: From 11 hours.
