At Scott Dunn, we know every couple is different. That’s why, we’ll get to know you personally to truly understand the type of couples holiday you want.
You might dream of escaping the hustle and bustle with an idyllic beach holiday at a time when families won’t be in the resort, or, you may long for a stylish, off-grid adventure. Whatever it is you seek, we’ll craft you a luxury couples holiday that’s utterly unforgettable.
Our holiday ideas for couples range from cultural getaways in European cities to safaris in Africa and intrepid journeys through Asia. All of our destinations and accommodation are tried and tested by our team of travel experts, and we’ll organise the very best guides and experiences to ensure the destination you’re visiting comes alive.

That’s why, from savouring delectable pasta dishes in Italy to exploring ornate temples in Thailand, we’ll help you find the perfect LGBTQ+ friendly holiday where you know you can relax and be yourself.
Everyone remembers their first safari. Hearing the trumpeting of an elephant echo across the savanna, or the magical experience of glimpsing a mother leopard playing with her newborn cub. Gazing across a clear night sky full of stars as you regale the whole lodge with your wildlife sightings from the day. As a couple, these are the moments you’ll never forget.
Yearning to add some excitement to your daily life? Whether you want to inhale the fresh ocean air as you stand atop Hawaii’s impressive Diamond Head peak or feel the wind in your hair as you kayak along Lake Tanganyika in Africa, our travel experts will create an adventure like no other, just for you.
Perhaps you’ve always longed to travel to Antarctica, or you want to spend a sabbatical exploring Asia. Maybe your lifelong dream is to spend a month combining safari, trekking and culture in Africa, or to fly around the world stopping off at the pyramids, Machu Picchu and Angkor Wat. Whatever your plans, this is no ordinary holiday and we’re here to transform it from a dream into reality.
