Tailor Made Holidays in August

Africa’s undiscovered coastline of Mozambique is a remarkable 1500 miles of pure white sand beaches dotted with a handful of exclusive resorts. For your August holiday we suggest you choose an uninhabited private island in the Quirimbas Archipelago or take to the seas on a traditional Dhow Safari followed by a few nights in an eco-lodge. The wildebeest migration is at its height in Kenya, so a safari twinned with a beach holiday in Zanzibar, the Seychelles or Mauritius is a great choice in August – try the Shanti Maurice for a traditional Mauritian flavour, or exclusive North Island or Denis Island in the Seychelles for unadulterated luxury. 

A hoilday to Koh Samui in Thailand also guarantees a perfect climate during August – we love the intimacy of boutique hideaway Outrigger, the Six Senses Samui with its renowned culinary prowess and the low key charm of Zazen.

Where to go on holiday in August

Hotels & Resorts for August holidays

  • Shanti Maurice Resort & Spa

    Located on the southern tip of the island, Shanti Maurice, one of The Leading Hotels of the World, embraces guests with the friendliest of service, offering a true paradise spread across a 36 acre landscape of fragrant tropical gardens. The resort consists of 44 spacious oceanfront Junior Suites and 17 Luxury Villas, each complete with pool (and unique touches, including an easel and full set of paints and a telescope for stargazing).

  • Denis Private Island

    A coral cay carpeted with tropical forest and encircled by the softest-of-soft white sand – why wouldn’t you go?! The clue is in the name – Denis is a family-owned private island whose charm lies in its intimate service and seclusion – for honeymooners, this is pure bliss! Stay in one of 25 cottages scattered along the beach  - dine on fresh-from-the-ocean fish and mingle with the island’s inhabitants – giant tortoises, green turtles and an abundance of birds! The pace is unhurried and the diving, fishing and snorkelling are sensational!

  • North Island

    This is one of those rare places that is revered across the planet as the crème de la crème of private islands, synonymous with seclusion, romance and breathtaking natural beauty. At North Island, barefoot-luxe meets unspoilt authenticity!

  • Bunga Raya

    As sensual and exotic as the hibiscus flower from which it takes its name, Bunga Raya is a hidden paradise just off the coast of Borneo. A secluded retreat that we think is a real hidden gem, this beautiful boutique resort is a cross between jungle-chic and being ‘at one with nature’. With the dense green jungle canopy and divine white beaches, you feel a million miles away from civilization – the reality is you are only 30 minutes from the airport making this an easily accessible island hideaway.

  • Anantara Rasananda

    You have probably been to Koh Phangan before, as part of the well-trod backpacker trail and the hot, intoxicating Full Moon parties that were a rite of passage. Full Moon parties still take place on Haad Rin Beach, some 30 minutes away but this is an altogether more refined affair, where chilled cocktails and stylish private pool villas are the order of the day – a much more sophisticated option than warm beer and sleeping on the sand!

  • Six Senses Samui

    It feels like a million miles from anywhere, peaceful and secluded with some of the most jaw-dropping views over the Gulf of Siam we have seen. In true Six
    Senses style it has a real feel of rustic luxe but there is absolutely no compromise on the luxury element, the blend is just perfect.

  • Azura Quilalea

    This private wholly uninhabited island, just 86 acres, is surrounded by the pristine waters in northern Mozambique’s Quirimbas Archipelago.

  • Seychellois Charm

    We recommend hopping between the pristine islands on your luxury Seychelles holiday as each has its own distinct character; this is one of the captivating draws. Experience Praslin and Denis Island on this special itinerary.

  • The Maldives and Thailand by Six Senses

    Your indulgent Six Senses adventure will start in Thailand in stunning Phang Nga Bay, on the small island of Koh Yao Noi, then head for The Maldives and indulge at the legendary Soneva Fushi resort. Service will be second to none.

  • Temple Discovery and Island Life

    Easily accessible, just a short hop from Bangkok Siem Reap is an ideal twin centre with the idyllic beaches of Koh Samui. 

  • Ol Donyo & Fundu Lagoon

    Combine the exhilaration and excitement of a safari in Kenya with a week’s relaxation and pampering on the palm fringed island of Pemba, Zanzibar.

  • Safari Under Canvas and Colonial Chic

    For the irresistible mix of classic safari experience in a tented camp on stilts, to the romantic Mauritius with its tropical charm, where you can recharge your batteries in the sunkissed surroundings.
