It was love at first sight for Vaibhav Shah when he caught sight of Kritika at a temple. He talked to her, wowed her and the couple recently tied the knot at MMRDA Grounds, BKC, Mumbai.

Of their ten day long honeymoon, Kritika says, "We were planning to honeymoon in New Zealand and Australia like every other couple, because it was the best season to visit. But Vaibhav did research on newer honeymoon destinations. We wanted to enjoy the beauty of nature and we decided to go to Seychelles. We are the first couple in our circle of friends to go there, many people are still not aware of this place."

Honeymoon Highlights

Seychelles has 116 islands but not all are developed. We visited the largest three; Mahe, also home to Victoria, the capital of Seychelles, Praslin and Silhouette.

In Silhouette we stayed at the Hilton Labriz Resort and Spa, the only accommodation on the island. We booked the luxurious beachfront pool villa with its own private pool, direct access to the beach and stunning panoramas of the Indian Ocean.

In Victoria, situated in the north east of Mahe, we stayed at the Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort and Spa. It'€™s nestled in the hills and coves of Beau Vallon Bay. We booked the oceanfront villa here too. Breathtaking views!

Best meal of the trip

Our best meal was at Grann Kaz, one of the restaurants in Hilton Labriz, Silhouette. They had the finest local seafood as part of their creole cuisine.

Most romantic moment

Vaibhav planned for us to go scuba diving; we explored the world underwater and took lots of pictures. Also, the couple spa was the best we'€™ve experienced.

Advice for couples

Seychelles is peaceful, scenic and beautiful. It'€™s a heavenly place to be in and a must-experience for couples.
