Our hand-picked recommendations for where to stay and what to do

Holiday to the Seychelles: Six Senses Zil Pasyon

Six Senses Zil Pasyon, the Seychelles

This is a firm Black Tomato favourite. All the exclusivity and facilities of a resort, albeit reserved for just 30 villas. A cinema beneath the stars. A duet of spa and infinity pool. Ecological sensibilities and (unsurprisingly) exceptional eating and drinking.

Luxury holiday to Portugal in May

A chic Portuguese getaway

Here’s something special. The twin fantasy of Lisbon and Alentejo (and it’s ideal for a week-long getaway). Great for couples and families alike. The music of Fado, the baking of pasteis de nata, UNESCO-listed Sintra and the dark-sky reserve of Alentejo.

Luxury holiday to Greece in May

Mainland Greece

This is really our ‘alternative’ Grecian itinerary, with a big focus on history, food and culture. Perhaps it’s a bit more grown up, a touch more decadent. Sunrise at the Acropolis, sunset at the Temple of Poseidon. Art in Hydra, and extreme luxury at Amanzoe.

Luxury holiday to Turkey in May

Macakizi, Turkey

A grown-up and glamorous resort with all of the energy of a sun-hot riviera. Stroll, swim, take in the music, prop yourself up at the bar. The surrounding countryside has a lot of history, and exceptional views.

Luxury holiday to Egypt in May

Ultimate Egypt

This classic Egyptian itinerary has the energy of a 1920s expedition. See Aswan, Luxor, the valley of the Kings and feluccas. Archaeological sites, private museum access, and some very authentic riverside meals. You’ll fall in love.

Experience rich in Egypt

“Another informative, experience rich trip from Black Tomato. This thoughtful and well-coordinated excursion included all the “must sees” of Egypt and Jordan and complimented them with a selection of people/culture events. All with Black Tomato’s flair and demand for excellence.”

Denise, Black Tomato Client

Meet the ‘taxi’ drivers of Madeira
