Comprising approximately 115 islands, this Indian Ocean archipelago well deserves the description of a little pocket of paradise. Whether you opt to remain on one of the inner islands or venture out to explore the farther reaches, you are guaranteed the beach holiday of a lifetime! Our top properties for honeymooners are Four Seasons and Desroches. Four Seasons is situated on the largest inner island, Mahé, while Desroches is one of the Seychelles’ outer islands and privately owned. Both offer luxurious accommodation, superb service, and plenty of exciting activities, should you wish to indulge!
Four Seasons is one of the most sumptuous resorts on Mahé – a stay here is a real treat! Located on the south-west coast, the property extends from the lush foliage close to Petite Anse beach all the way into the jungle-clad hills overlooking the Indian Ocean. The central main areas include lounges, a library, two restaurants, two bars, a shop, activity centres, a spa, and a swimming pool. All buildings are made from natural timbers and brick, for that gorgeous Creole style
Guest accommodation also has a distinct Creole flavour. A total of 67 villas and suites is available here, in eight categories – for honeymooners, we recommend one of the hilltop suites, as these afford the most privacy. All villas and suites come with air conditioning and all the mod cons you could require. The en-suite facilities feature indoor and outdoor showers – and all options boast their own deck, with private plunge pool! Activities range from watersports… to walking or jogging along Petite Anse’s scenic trails… to excursions to other parts of Mahé, such as the island’s markets, museums, gardens, and cathedral. Staff members are happy to arrange activities specifically for honeymooners, with, of course, a romantic theme!
Desroches Island resort also specialises in looking after honeymooners. This beautiful outer island, the largest of the Amirantes, is accessed via a 40-minute flight from Mahé. Its main building, a hotel aptly named Hideaway, is situated on the stunning south beach. Here guests can relax in the lounge and library and sample some very fine dining in the restaurant! There is also a boutique, a bar with ocean views, a spa, and a swimming pool. The décor uses a neutral palette, to enhance both the tranquillity of the setting and the vibrant colours of nature. Watching the sun set while sipping a cocktail is a particularly popular activity here!
Other activities include watersports, tennis, hiking, biking, and exploring the island’s old village. Often guests encounter the local giant tortoises, which makes for some memorable moments! Island-hopping is also available. Guest accommodation ranges from Beach Suites to the super-lux Madam Zabre Villa – we suggest a Luxury Beach Suite for honeymooners, with all mod cons plus a private garden and private plunge pool. For a little extra pampering, a staff member from the property’s spa will provide a massage treatment in your own suite. This really is the ultimate in laidback and luxurious living!
