Lindsey Wallace

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT Maldives, Oman, Seychelles, and the United Arab Emirates

After discovering it was nearly impossible to find reliable, up-to-date travel intel about the Indian Ocean islands (Maldives, Seychelles, Mauritius), Lindsey Wallace founded Linara Travel in 2003. He’s now an expert on each of those destinations and is especially adept at matching travelers to the island, hotel, and overwater bungalow—even butler, massage therapist, and dive instructor— that best suit their needs. He’s become an expert on the United Arab Emirates and Oman too and, with help from friends in high places, carves out exclusive rates and perks so you can live like a king in these otherwise pricey places. He visits these countries about six times a year, building and cementing the relationships that make all this possible.

Lindsey Wallace
Trips have a three-night minimum and start at $420 per day for two travelers in the Seychelles; $480 per day for two in the Maldives; $350 per day for two in Abu Dhabi; and $400 per day for two in Dubai.
