UK Travel journalist, Varun Sharma has voted the Denis Private Island in the Seychelles as his favourite dive of the year so far.
In October last year, The Sunday Independent highlighted scuba diving in the Seychelles saying: “The Seychelles is one of three destinations in the world reputed to offer the best snorkelling sites.”
Varun Sharma, from the Inside Luxury Travel show, seems to agree with this after recently taking his scuba diving holidays to the beautiful island in the Seychelles and exploring the magnificent underwater world.
The popular travel journalist created the Inside Luxury Travel TV show which is broadcast on the Travel Channel across the world and into 500 million homes. Sharma’s travel expertise and knowledge allows him, together with his award-winning production team, access into some of the most exotic and most private destinations in the world.
Denis Island is one of those exotic destinations and is situated in one of the best scuba diving destinations in the world; the Seychelles. The surrounding sparkling azure waters of the coral island are protected and teeming with marine species such as triggerfish, clownfish, parrotfish, manta rays, sea turtles, white tip and reef sharks, sailfish, tuna, dolphins and whales.
The colourful coral reefs and gardens are fantastic for snorkelling and scuba activities and once divers have explore the beauty underwater, they can head back to the island to discover its breathtaking natural landscapes comprising white sand beaches, lush green forests and palm trees.
Denis Island is an idyllic retreat for tourists seeking tranquil surroundings for romantic escapes, weddings, honeymoons, family holidays, wellness breaks and scuba diving in the Seychelles.
The luxurious Indian Ocean resort boasts a selection of accommodation options including Beach Villas, Family Villas, Beachfront Spa Cottages, Deluxe Beach Cottages and Beach Cottages. Each villa and cottages offers fresh decor and wooden furnishing and a selection of modern amenities including iPod docking stations, wine chillers, mini-fridges, air conditioning, telephones, hairdryers, and open-air bathrooms with al fresco showers. The villas and cottages also feature private decks with daybeds, sun loungers and chairs.
Facilities at the island resort include a spa with natural and rejuvenating treatments, a library, tennis courts, swimming pool, wine cellar and gourmet restaurants.
CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Alain St.Ange, was thrilled with this vote of confidence by Varum Sharma.
“We always knew that our diving is one on the very best and that a swim in the turquoise blue seas of the Seychelles remains like swimming in an aquarium, and we are thankful to Mr. Sharma for bringing one of our unique selling points to the world at large,” he said.
