Linara Travel was established when we found it nearly impossible to obtain quality travel information about resorts in the Indian Ocean and Dubai – even more difficult was finding travel professionals that had first-hand knowledge of these destinations. We specialize in luxury resorts and experiences in the Maldives, Seychelles, Mauritius, Southern Africa, and the United Arab Emirates.

Providing you with the highest level of service is the highest importance to us. Our team ensures every aspect of your experience is in perfect order, before, during, and after your vacation. Our clients enjoy numerous benefits highlighted by our service that includes access to a dedicated travel consultant throughout your journey, custom itineraries that best match your desires, and your own personal web page dedicated to your holiday.

Linara Travel’s dedication to providing personalized and one-of-a-kind vacations has been recognized annually since 2005 by industry leaders such as Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, Travel+Leisure Magazine, and Wendy Perrin.


We send more travelers to luxury resorts in the Indian Ocean than any other company in North America. Whether you are looking for the most beautiful beach
in the Seychelles, a luxury safari in Africa, the posh resorts of Mauritius, amazing over water villas in the Maldives, or
the glitz and glamour of Dubai; Linara Travel will advise and help plan the vacation of your dreams.

We personally visit the Maldives, Seychelles, Mauritius, United Arab Emirates, and Southern Africa several times a year to ensure you benefit from our unique perspective and have the most up-to-date information available. Our knowledgeable staff is here to ensure your vacation surpasses your expectations.
We work directly with hotels, resorts, and suppliers to offer you excellent rates and detailed information about each destination. Our special relationships allow us to create unique and luxurious packages with great rates.
We are here 24 hours a day no matter where you are in the World. We do more than just offer advice on your vacation dreams, we strive to take away all the hard work of planning a trip so you can simply relax and enjoy. Leave the details to us!
