WINTER SUN

The Winter season is now upon us, and with it comes shorter days and colder nights. At Connolly, however, we want you to be equipped with the best summer wardrobe classics at all times.

For those of you lucky enough to escape the cold, we have lightweight cottons, and colourful linens perfect for any poolside, whatever the month.

Alongside the display, Friend of Connolly, Travel professional and Nota Bene founder, Anthony Lassman, shares some of his favourite spots to visit this Winter.

THE SEYCHELLES

The unique rock boulder formations, jungly landscapes and expansive ocean surrounding the Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles make this a favourite Nota Bene long-haul beach resort destination.

Optimum months are April and November when the days are sunniest, the seas at their calmest and island life at its most enjoyable. Fly into the capital Mahe and island hop by helicopter experiencing the diversity of two contrasting island paradises. Think of giant tortoises, unique flora and fauna, unforgettable sunsets. Combine the Seychelles with an exhilarating safari in East Africa, ideally Tanzania.

Mustique

We love the beautiful private villas in the southern Caribbean island of Mustique in the Grenadines. Fully staffed, many come with outstanding cooks, most featuring full-sized pools, ocean views and acres of space in which to relax.

A vacation on Mustique means little else to do but swim, take long leisurely lunches at The Beach Café at Cotton House or at your poolside dining terrace. Perhaps an occasional game of tennis or some deep-sea fishing or a party at a neighbouring villa in high season. Nota Bene Global knows the finest villas on Mustique and where they are located.
