Huvafen Fushi, Maldives

We booked our holiday with Michael and Jonti and were so pleased with the service we were given from day one. So professional and informative, we were very grateful for the honest and helpful advice and our honeymoon was just perfect. Huvafen Fushi was the most stunning island, the service, people and facilities (and food) were absolutely phenomenal. Utter perfection from the moment we stepped into Heathrow until the moment we arrived home. Thank you Turquoise, everything you did contributed to the most wonderful experience that we will never forget. From the beautifully presented documents to the keepsake we received when we arrived home. We will use you again for our holidays as you have been the best travel company we have ever used. Thank you!

Hilton Moorea Lagoon, Bora Bora

We've just been on the most amazing honeymoon to Bora Bora and everything ran so smoothly that I can't fault a single thing. The only possible downside was the super long journey but it was definitely worth it when we arrived; we were both speechless upon arrival....the whole island is breathtaking! The staff at the resort were so friendly and attentive, I can't fault them on anything. The atmosphere was great and the food was amazing. Wanted to say a huge thankyou to Lisa for organising such an amazing trip that we'll never forget. Bora Bora is most definitely the most beautiful place I have ever seen and I hope that we can visit again in the future. If we do then I won't hesitate in contacting Lisa at Turquoise again, she was great the whole way through!

Shanti Maurice, Mauritius

Absolutely fantastic honeymoon. The hotel was everything we wanted and more. Quiet, but not too quiet. Small, but not too small. The food was excellent, the staff fantastic, the rum cocktails at sundown were perfect. On the quieter south side of the island, many of the excursions are quite a drive away, but no bother, the hotel with its fantastic spa and excellent beach will mean you won't want or need to leave. I am so pleased we booked with Turquoise, the service that Hannah our Agent and April our Gift List Coordinator gave was 2nd to none, they even helped us move around our excursion schedule via email once we were already in Mauritius. Seamless Honeymoon experience, if only we could do it again!

Banyan Tree Seychelles , Seychelles

Our final resort on our wonderful island hopping in the Seychelles and we could not believe that the best was still to come. After an amazing time at L'Archipel and Domaine D'Orangerie we could not believe how great the Banyan Tree was. Our villa on the hill had the most spectacular views of the bay and island and sitting in our private pool watching the view and seeing local fruit bats soar overhead was a memory not to be forgotten. We had fantastic meals in our villa and the complimentary honeymoon room set up was so romantic. We got to see quite a bit of the beautiful island of Mahe on a tour but in the end it was the villa and views that will live for ever in our memories. We would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to Lisa for an amazing job of organising our very special time in the Seychelles and for being their to help us out whenever we needed it. Elaine and John

Le Domaine De L'Orangeraie, Seychelles

What an amazing resort - what an amazing island. After L'archipel we could not have expected much more and yet we were blown away with the quality and facilities of Le Domaine. The villa was like a tree house built into the mountain and yet had sea views and felt secluded and individual. The wooden bridge across to our own private jacuzzi exceeded our imagination and the only downside was once again the incredible torrential downours and storms. Unusual and unseasonal but it did not spoil our time here......even having to put the umbrella up IN the restaurant one evening! Touring the island by bicycle and finding desolate beaches was one of the highlights of our honeymoon. Elaine & John

Hotel L'Archipel, Seychelles

What a fantastic start to our honeymoon! Arriving early in the morning after a long journey it was so nice to see the amazing beach and scenary at L'Archipel and the welcome cocktail soon swept away any jet lag. Our villa overlooked the beach and was well equipped with everything we needed. Despite the incredbile rain and thunderstorms we experienced there was plenty of sunshine and it was always very warm! Service was great in the resort and it was also a great base to see more of the amazing Praslin island. Elaine & John

General, via Feefo

I have to say all the staff I spoke to were most helpful even when we had slight problems to resolve it was done quickly and efficiently. I almost certainly recommend them to anyone want a first class service as well as a first class holiday. Review submitted via Feefo.

The Oberoi Mauritius, Mauritius

A beautiful hotel and an amazing place to spend the second week of our honeymoon. We had a private pool villa (Lara managed to get us one with a lovely view our over the sea). Having our own pool and garden, we didn't really leave the room much during the day or try out the hotel's two main pools, but these looked very nice. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We ate in the main restaurant most nights where the food was fantastic (although not cheap - we were very glad that we were on half board!). The wine list is also very good, although again quite pricey. Cocktails in the bar were very reasonable though and by the end of the week we had managed to work our way through a lot of the list! We didn't manage to eat at On the Rocks - it seemed to get booked up very quickly - when we arrived they only had availability for one night in the next week, which was a shame. Otherwise, the staff were incredibly friendly (we were bowed to wherever we went) and would bring anything to your room at a moment's notice. Overall, we had a really relaxing week (just what we needed at the end of our honeymoon) and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Oberoi.

Sanctury Makanyane Safari Lodge,

After a fantastic flight up from Johannesburg in a light aircraft, we were met on the airstrip by Kaizer, our guide for the three days we had a Makanyane. On the half hour drive to the lodge, we saw elephant, lions, giraffes and several kinds of antelope, which was a great start to our safari! The lodge was superb. Although the common area looked a bit tired and could perhaps do with updating, the rooms themselves were incredible (huge thanks to Lara for managing to get us a room with a great view over the river). Our guide Kaizer was great and we saw a huge range of wildlife on our game drives (leopard and cheetahs being the notable exceptions). One thing you will not be lacking at Makanyane is food - we were constantly being fed and the food itself was delicious. All in all, a fantastic three days!

Le Quartier Francais, Franschhoek,

Arriving at Cape Town after a long flight we were met at the door of the aircraft and escorted through immigration whilst our bags were collected for us - a very luxurious start to our honeymoon and indicative of the great itinerary that Lara put together for us. Our room at Le Quartier Francais was beautiful - much bigger than we had expected from the photos on the hotel's website. The hotel itself was fantastic - friendly and helpful staff, a lovely garden where the pool was and fantastic food. We ate in both the Tasting Room and the Living Room and would highly recommend both. Franschhoek itself is beautiful and we wished we could have stayed longer (so many more vineyards to visit!). It was the perfect start to our honeymoon!

Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, Tahiti

We are just home from the most amazing trip ever; 3 weeks in French Polynesia for our 35th (Coral) Wedding Anniversary. All organised and tailored to our exact requirements by the lovely Lyndsey, at Turquoise. We first used Turquoise Holidays for our Silver Wedding trip to Soneva Gili (now Gili Lankanfushi) in The Maldives and were so impressed by the first class, personal service that the team at Turquoise deliver that we never considered looking anywhere else when planning this special trip, some 10 years on. As a proposed ‘once in a lifetime’ holiday, we were looking to experience many different aspects of French Polynesia in one single visit. Lyndsey suggested a small quiet hotel, on the smaller island of Huahine, to allow us time to recover from the 4 flights and 38 hours of travelling (door to door) from Scotland. We had decided against a stopover in LA as this would have eaten into our precious time in the Society Islands. We chose the Relais Mahana, a charming, traditional ‘pension’ style hotel on the quieter, southern part of the island - Huanine Iti. There are only a handful of bungalows nestled in the most beautiful sandy bay and we were lucky enough to be granted our request of a beachfront bungalow where we literally stepped off our deck onto the white coral sands ……. just 3 metres from the turquoise lagoon. The Relais Mahana was perfect. Excellent traditional ‘Polynesian style’ cooking with the freshest of fish and vegetables on both lunch and dinner menus; a small coral garden, teeming with fish, just under the jetty, and simply - peace, quiet and solitude. An ideal, almost ‘castaway-like’ experience, to start off our adventure. Four days of rest and relaxation later, we are picked up at the Relais Mahana jetty by Tahiti Yacht Charters’ captain, Manu. Manu is to be our captain and also our tour guide for the week. His knowledge and enthusiasm for these islands is beyond impressive. We spend the next 7 days aboard a luxury 40’ catamaran, visiting some of the most beautiful spots in the Society Islands. This company specialises in ‘romantic’ yacht charter packages. We had an extensive detailed itinerary from 8am to sunset each day. We swam with sharks, we fed stingray and dived with mantaray, we snorkelled in coral gardens boasting the largest collection of tropical fish we have ever seen. And swam in shallow lagoons – the most dazzling shade of turquoise. We paddle-boarded, we kayaked, we floated in sea hammocks. We hiked through a jungle, we visited a vanilla plantation and even enjoyed a complimentary couples spa treatment at a luxury hotel on a nearby motu. But above all, we enjoyed the most amazing cuisine every single day, all prepared by Lei, our hostess. Lei skilfully prepared every meal from scratch from the tiny galley with as much expertise as any chef in any fine French restaurant. We would highly recommend this sailing trip to anyone visiting French Polynesia. It’s a definite bucket list item, this one! Week 3 and we are dropped off at what has to be the most beautiful place on this planet …. The Four Seasons, Bora Bora. Never in our lives have we visited somewhere that looks better in real life than in travel brochures and postcards. But Four Seasons way exceeded our expectations, on all counts. Once again, Turquoise had noted on our reservation that this was a special occasion, anniversary trip. We were left absolutely speechless when Federico took us to our bungalow; we had been given a complimentary upgrade to one of the huge water bungalows with it’s own plunge pool at the end of the jetty. I cried!! Situated on one of the outer motus, facing the imposing Mt Otemanu, - in the centre of this stunning coral island, we can already see why The Four Seasons, Bora Bora has repeatedly won awards for being the ultimate destination in the whole wide world. The lagoon is more than 50 shades of blue. The Four Seasons staff are the most courteous, gracious people ever.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa, Seychelles

Thank you so much to Ruth for making our dream Honeymoon a reality. We had a fantastic time in the Seychelles, with your recommendations we stayed in two beautiful hotels and had a wonderful time. You were always on hand during the planning stage with new ideas and enthusiasm for our Honeymoon. Thanks again Oli and Hannah Owen, Shropshire.

SALA Phuket, Thailand

Michelle, thank you for the recommendation to stay at SALA Phuket. SALA has a beautiful design and overall the villa layout (with private pool and outdoor bath area) and decor were excellent. The beach was right there and was pristine. Hotel transfers with Exotissimo were great and also the flights and travel schedule with Thai Airways. It was a wonderful visit to Thailand

Tamarind Village, Thailand

We booked our honeymoon through Lisa at Turquoise and had the most fabulous time! After many emails and phone calls back and forth with Lisa we finally settled on Thailand and spent 4 nights at the Tamarind Village in Chiang Mai and then 10 nights in the Aleenta Hui Hin. The whole trip was incredible and both resorts we're amazing but the Aleenta was our favourite, there are no words to describe how beautiful and tranquil it is there, to wake up in the morning and watch the sunrise over the sea from your bed was fantastic! None of this would have been possible without the help from Lisa from start to finish she provided a superb service and we are so grateful! Also a big thank you to April for helping us with our honeymoon gift list! Thank you both for making our honeymoon the most amazing and memorable experience! We will be booking through you guys again soon! Many Thanks Darren & Sarah Lockwood

Shangri-La Rasa Ria, Malaysia

Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, Australia

We had a fantastic time in Australia. We took in all the sights in Sydney, Ayers Rock and the Great Barrier Reef. Thanks to Michael and the staff at Turquoise who helped plan our Honeymoon and gave great advice on excursions, hotels etc... A truly memorable experience

Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort, Tahiti

Lisa organised a great trip for us to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary. Each island offered something different. The highlight of our holiday has to be Vahine Island. A magical place,the place is a true Paradise enhanced by the service provided by every one there. Luxury and service with a view that was breath taking together with the most amazing food what more could we aske for. highly recommend

Banyan Tree Bangkok, Thailand

What an amazing trip. You chose two excellent hotels! The Banyan Tree in Bangkok was really nice, good location and excellent breakfast buffet. The hotel is a little jaded but it makes up in excellent service. The vertigo bar at the top of the hotel was excellent. Good pick up service and drop off service. Friendly company and good vehicle. No complaints. If I were to go back to Bangkok (which I will) I would stay at the Banyan Tree again if there was a good deal. The flights were planned very well too and I cannot complain about Bangkok airways. Good timings. We got into Male at a good time. And the plane that took us to Kandhoo was good too.The distance of the island is not a problem. Makes you feel even more that you are venturing to a Robinson Crusoe style place! Lara - great choice of a hotel in Maldives. We are so glad you pushed us for the Six Senses. What a place! Six Senses Laamu was a great experience! We had already stayed at some top 5* hotels on our way to the Maldives and this was the icing on the cake! The moment you arrive you are welcomed by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Love the idea of the cycles to get around and the GEM idea is really good too. Not once did we wear shoes on the island. amazing! The spa was amazing! Great deal on the 50 minute massage! The location and turquoise blue waters are visually stunning and the villas are just very well made and thought out. Lara the food was simply amazing! Every day the food was unique and the seafood was super fresh and well made. The main restaurant manager was always accommodating and helpful - even giving us the humus recipe which was rather delicious!Excellent idea of giving free ice cream to your guests! Wonderful! Overall Lara you were really helpful, planned the trip really well and you even informed Emirates it was our honeymoon???? They gave us a few glasses of champagne, chocolate and a small cake on our flight from Male to DXB. Awesome service!!!! We will defo be using Turquoise again and recommending you as their travel advisor.
