On the south west of the island, against the backdrop of the tree-covered Morne Brabant mountain, Les Pavillons sits on a long, white beach protected by a coral reef. Le Morne is particularly popular with windsurfers and kiters, and races in the SurfSki World Series take place in these clear, warm waters.

But you don't have to be a watersports whizz to appreciate the idyllic setting. Couples in search of post-wedding pampering will love the Nymphea Spa. Made up of eight double treatment villas with beautiful gardens and water features, it's perfect for relaxing in a serene environment.

The rooms and suites are decorated in calming neutrals and all have terraces; some have double daybeds facing the beach. And there's a good range of restaurants.

Wow factor: A catamaran trip gives you the chance to explore the sea beyond Le Morne - and, if you are in luck, go dolphin spotting.

Flight time: From 12 hours.
