Where can I go?

I fancy all inclusive but not a pool, actual sea. A bungalow over the water or with some kind of jetty.
DH would like to dive and see fish, coral etc.

The Maldives seems a bit obvious. I want somewhere that people don’t know about.

Join me in my fantasy.

I'll come! Bora Bora has all we dream of.

We're not taking kids, right? Do we have to take husbands?

I stayed somewhere just like that off the coast of Honduras.

The Maldives might be obvious but also the most amazing. And not too bad a flight from the UK.

I don’t have children. So none to take.
I teach primary school so I certainly don’t want children there!!

In these paradise type places, they often have adult-only resorts/islands.

That looks like it Alpha. I’ll have that one.
Oh and it doesn’t matter how long the flights are. We are all flying first of course.

Oh and by the time we go I’ll be a size 8.

I want a pool, but it's got to be warm and I've got to be able to reach the bottom even if it's on my tiptoes. Somewhere hot but not too hot - late 20s will do me. Plenty of shade when I need it. All inclusive but a la carte, not a big buffet. Drinks to be brought to me by some handsome young local chaps. Nothing pervy: I only want to look, not touch. No DP and no DC - in fact I think I'd like the whole place to be full of middle aged ladies like my good self.

One last thing, my budget is about £250 😂😂😋

Oh yes. A nice young man to bring you cocktails. Like you say, nothing pervy, I just like being waited.

Borneo for some great diving

Zanzibar. Or that little island off it. I went 20 years ago and I've never seen sand so white or sea so clear.

Seychelles.....a bit more select than Maldives.( there are even private islands) ....we've had a fortnight on 2 islands, Mahe and Praslin...highly recommend ...would return in a heartbeat

In my mind the Seychelles is in the same league as Benidorm and the Costa Del Sol.
Is it a bit ‘nicer’ than them?

Not that there is anything wrong with Benidorm etc, I’ve just always thought of them as a bit loud. I want somewhere quiet.

You must have the Seychelles mixed up with somewhere else, defo in the same class as Maldives, Mauritius etc and at the opposite end of the scale to Benidorm.

HidingBehindTheWallpaper Sun 29-Oct-17 11:09:25

I quite possibly have.
My family were of the opinion that any foreign holiday to somewhere hot and with a beach was gauche.

Oh hiding you couldn't be more wrong
The Seychelles are a exclusive tropical paradise getaway in the true sense of the word....beautiful beaches, exotic birds, gorgeous food
I've travelled to Thailand,and and Caribbean as well as extensively in The Med....this is THE best!

HidingBehindTheWallpaper Sun 29-Oct-17 11:21:47

Right. That is my new fantasy destination.
I shall set to planning my fantasy holiday.
