What to expect:

Moondance Villa, Fresnaye, Cape Town, South Africa

Why we love it:
Moondance Villa speaks of abundance. Not just because it is abundantly luxurious and gorgeous in every way, but because there is a culture of abundance in the way the staff add value to their guests stay at every turn.Instead of being charged for every service and extra, they are actively looking to add value, spoil you and charge you nothing for it. Set up high against the granite copse of Fresnaye, you are sheltered from the wind and have glorious wrap-around views of the city.

Le Domaine L'Orangeraie, La Digue, Seychelles

Why we love it
La Digue is relaxed, small and there are almost no cars - just hundreds of bicycles. We loved this 4 star hotel as its situated right at the point near where the ferry arrives and has a lovely deck overlooking the bay. It has a great snorkel spot right off their jetty, however we didnt get the chance to test it out. The accommodation is varied with garden and hillside villas and it has a stunning spa up on the hill. The guests gather at sunset on the wide deck and enjoy sun downers while in the pool.

Four Seasons Resort, Mahe, Seychelles

Four Seasons Resort, Mahe, Seychelles

Why we love it
Perched up on the hill overlooking a calm private cove with the bluest water, this collection of Villas was a favourite for us. With the signature great service expected of a Four Seasons Hotel, it was also authentically friendly and relaxed. Best thing is the snorkeling right off the beach along the granite fringe, which is superb!
