One of the most popular destinations here is the idyllic island of Mauritius.

Alternatively, take a glorious trip to the much loved Maldives, which boasts unique beauty and luxury in equal measure.
Whichever destination you decide to book in the Indian Ocean, you can guarantee that you will enjoy a sublime stay in paradise. Sun lovers from all over the world make the journey to the Maldives to soak up some of the fantastic sunshine on the clean and wide beaches. With over a thousand islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, it’s not difficult to see why this destination is one of the most popular for sun-seekers. When you visit the Maldives, you will get a true sense of island hospitality, both from the friendly locals and hotel staff at your resort.
A beach stay in the Maldives is the perfect holiday for anyone looking for a week to lay back and relax on clean white sands. With clear ocean waters, this is the ideal spot to dive in and enjoy a swim, with paddle boats and windsurfing activities being just a couple of ways to explore the glittering waters here. Citrus Holidays will book you into the four-star resort of Smartline Eriyadu, an intimate hotel that is built in traditional Maldivian style, giving you a true island feel from the moment you wake up. With welcoming staff, you will feel relaxed from the first moment; be sure to take advantage of the spa and wellness centre and outdoor swimming pool.
Also, our Sri Lanka and Maldives Beach package offers everything from canoeing to cooking demonstrations, allowing you to absorb the culture and enjoy exhilarating experiences, too. Take in the beautiful countryside on the local heritage train journey to Nuwara Eliya, after you’ve taken part in a cultural dance in Kandy. During your nine-night stay, Citrus Holidays will arrange accommodation for you in four different hotels, which you will stay in as you travel across these beautiful islands. This will give you the opportunity to unwind and recharge after a fun-filled day. Each hotel is welcoming and offers fabulous views of the area, some of which are located right by the ocean.
Mauritius is another immensely popular holiday destination in the Indian Ocean. With vast landscapes of sea and sand, you will be able to relax in total tropical tranquillity. Aside from the gorgeous beaches, you can also enjoy a range of cultural delights, particularly the Maheswarnath Hindu Temple and the Balaclava Ruins by Turtle Bay.
