Try out water sports like sailing in the Caribbean or scuba diving* off the coast of Guadeloupe. Share a Creole buffet as a family around your private pool in Mauritius. Swim in the turquoises waters of the Turks and Caicos Islands and stroll along the idyllic beaches of the Bahamas. Enjoy a cocktail of thrilling sports kitesurfing over the waves near Diamond Rock in Martinique.

Are you wondering what to do in the Maldives? Play Robinson Crusoe on the unspoilt island of Kani. Immerse yourself in Thai culture among the verdant mountains on the island of Phuket. Experience a harmony in a dream destination on a family holiday in Bali. Still in Asia, the Cherating Beach resort, in Malaysia, offers you a relaxing coastal setting in the heart of lush jungle.
