Our range of Indian Ocean resorts provide luxury accommodation, first-class food and unique experiences at prices that won’t break the bank.
If your idea of paradise is sipping cocktails on a sandy beach, swimming among brightly-coloured fish and being pampered in a tranquil spa, the Maldives is the perfect choice.
The Maldives consists of almost 1,200 small islands, each with its own powder-soft sand and turquoise waters. The archipelago is also home to some of the best diving and snorkelling locations in the world, where you’ll have the chance to explore an array of marine life, including giant turtles, whitetip sharks and manta rays.
For a true castaway experience, book a boat trip to visit some of the uninhabited islands, where long stretches of secluded sand and palm forests await.
A tiny island in a vast swathe of ocean, Mauritius is famous for its flawless beaches, clear lagoons and leisure activities.
Watersport-lovers head to the lagoon of Le Morne to tackle the legendary One Eye wave, while Seven Coloured Earths attracts visitors for its variety of different coloured sand dunes. The island also has a selection of golf courses in beautiful natural surroundings.
Ile Aux Cerf island has the largest lagoon in Mauritius and offers a range of water-based activities, as well as a selection of excellent beach restaurants.
When it comes to accommodation, Mauritius hotels provide guests with exquisite facilities, décor and cuisine influenced by French and Creole culture.
Thanks to its breathtaking beaches, crystal clear seas and beautiful sunsets, the Seychelles has been likened to the Garden of Eden.
There are around 100 islands in the Seychelles, making it a perfect place for diving and snorkelling in the warm and clear lagoons. The island is home to a plethora of wildlife, with bird sanctuaries in Aride, Cousin and the Bird Islands and giant tortoises in Aldabra Atoll. The tropical haven of Praslin Island is also worth a visit to enjoy some of the archipelago's most idyllic beaches.
A teardrop-shaped island 30 miles off the coast of India, Sri Lanka is notable for its beaches, ancient ruins, tea plantations, delicious food and majestic elephants.
Sri Lanka has several World Heritage sights, including the Pulmonaria Cave Temples and the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. The famous reclining Buddha statues are a must-see as well.
Whether you’re lazing on beaches, scuba diving, exploring the beautiful natural landscapes or learning about ancient culture, there’s plenty to see and do on this diverse island.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
