What a weekend!
Where do I start… after a 48 hour whirlwind trip to the Seychelles we are feeling relaxed, recharged and ready for the downhill roll into the summer holidays.
The Seychelles is only a 4 hour flight from Abu Dhabi. The short flight time, together with a brief transfer to the hotel and no time difference means you can switch to holiday mode from the moment you arrive at this island paradise.
The Banyan Tree Resort was our destination. As soon as we arrived we sat out on the terrace where the views are simply stunning. We enjoyed lunch and cocktails before we went to our beachfront villa.
Friday morning was late breakfast and a lazy morning at the main infinity pool. The weather was a mix of hot and showery which is to be expected in tropical climes although quite unusual for this time of year. The odd shower proved a welcome break from the searing sun that saw us both getting a little sunburnt – ouch!
Later on we headed down to the beach for sundowners and a little more sun, a swim in our Villa pool followed by a dip in the hot tub! I like to try and fit everything in so that we feel like we’ve had the full experience.
Before we could blink it was Saturday afternoon and time to pack those cases (only two this time, one for each day – ha!). We started the journey back home to beautiful Abu Dhabi. We love to travel but there’s no place like home.
Where are you guys going this summer?
