Tomas Cochrane | Sales & Marketing Manager

I have been with Hummingbird for 8 years now and it has afforded me the opportunity to truly explore and get under the skin of the Indian Ocean. I particularly enjoy hiking and discovering the wonderful nature this magical part of the World boasts. Whether its walking along the Tea Trails in Sri Lanka, the Black river Gorges in Mauritius, Silhouette island national park in Seychelles or swimming in Hanifaru bay in the Maldives. There is so much more to the Indian Ocean than just incredible beaches, luxurious resorts and great weather. If I had to pick one resort to go back to again and again, it would have to be the Ceylon Tea Trails in Sri Lanka. There is something so special about staying in the beautiful Tea Planters Bungalows and experiencing a little slice of old world charm while surrounded by the most jaw dropping scenery. My favourite place to have a meal would have to be the underwater restaurant at Anantara Kihavah in Maldives. Tucked in to the side of the coral Reef, you can live out your fantasies of dining like a James Bond villain with a five course lobster champagne meal, watching the abundant marine life swim pass your table.
