Memorable parts? A brilliant itinerary! Tips? Local benefits? I do not feel that we reduced environmental impact or supported conservation at all. All the local people that we invited to take part in the photo shoots were offered payment although I do not feel that this was making any sustainable change. Overall rating? Truly magical experience with a spectacular photographer. (more)Nikki Biggs

From
£1,095
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Yoga after a glorious sunrise, with the lovely smell of a Jasmine plant by the window, before a delicious and nutritious breakfast. Tips? Remember you can dip in and out of any activity; we did yoga pre-breakfast, pilates pre-dinner and a range of "work out" sessions and walks in between. You can fill your time with treatments, I didn't book any and enjoyed reading by the pool and swimming in the sea. You can also have quiet time on your own or chat with the others...
