Unusual and unique holidays run through our veins at Turquoise, it is these we love the most and know the best. Over the years we have arranged everything from a year-long round-the-world extravaganza, to a self-drive circumnavigation of Australia in a Caterham sports car… branded with a union jack! We have even organised a honeymoon requested by the groom on the way to the church and the bride never knew a thing...

Unusual and unique holiday FAQ
It really depends on what you consider unusual! Réunion is a lush island that rarely gets attention but it's packed full of adventure. For a beach you might pick somewhere like the Seychelles or the Maldives, but Oman has a string of spectacular sands that you will fall in love with. If your typical holiday is relaxing on the beach, then why not mix it up with something completely out of the ordinary, like a New Zealand road trip or hopping through several countries in Southeast Asia.
There are plenty of unusual places out there! You can have your own Arabian adventure in Oman, see the orangutans of Borneo or hop between the different islands of Indonesia. You shouldn't discount the Maldives for a family beach escape, as even though it's often seen as a honeymooners' retreat, fantastic kids' clubs and activities make it ideal for families. If you're a family with older children, then a road trip through California or Australia would be epic.
A week on a beach has become the traditional sunny escape for most couples but there is a trend for more unique couples' holidays. Sri Lanka is packed with lovely landscapes, culture and adventure, and it's small enough to tick off much of the country in a fortnight. Oman is a brilliant option for desert adventures, while the likes of Cambodia and Laos harbour many unique sights that barely register on most people's radars.
Beyond the Maldives and Mauritius, there are plenty of places with stunning beaches. Some destinations you may not have thought about include Oman, which has splendid sands from Muscat to Salalah, and the Cook Islands, so often flying under the radar in comparison to its more illustrious neighbours, Fiji and The Islands of Tahiti. Hidden Caribbean islands like Grenada, St. Kitts & Nevis and the Turks & Caicos are also incredible escapes, too.
Many of you might think anywhere that's not the UK would make for an unusual Christmas! There are a lot of destinations experiencing their best patches of weather, ensuring you can grab some festive winter sun. Some of our favourite destinations in December include Antigua & Barbuda, the Maldives, Oman, South Africa and Thailand.
Even though they're not exclusively all-inclusive, a lot of our hotels do have all-inclusive packages available, which you can tailor how you wish. The only exception is The Islands of Tahiti, where no hotels offer all-inclusive options. Speak to one of our travel specialists for more information.
