Luxury Seychelles

Mark and David's verdict:

Some places have that elusive 'wow' factor - others don't. The Seychelles has it in spades. Silky beaches, tropical forests, the super deluxe hotels. Swim with turtles in the morning, spend an afternoon unwinding in the spa then dress for cocktails at sunset. Perfect? You bet.

Enchanted Island Beach ResortLuxury at Enchanted Island

Just Seychelles says

For a truly unique tropical island destination, look no further than Seychelles. The granitic inner islands, along with their outer ring of coral atolls, are home to some of the world’s most stunning beaches. Couple this with spectacular fauna and flora, national parks, superb diving and deep-sea fishing, and you can understand why Seychelles is a special place.

  • Natural wonders
  • Superb beaches
  • Year-round destination

Situated in the tropical zone of the Indian Ocean, daytime temperatures are a dependable and balmy 25-32°C, regardless of the time of year.

Hotels have been built with a keen eye on conservation, ranging from boutique hotels to luxury resorts and private islands.

We’ve highlighted three hotels here to inspire you.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is a spectacular resort with every possible ingredient for the perfect Seychelles holiday. There’s a PADI Dive Centre, Jungle Fun kids’ club, top notch spa and six diverse restaurants to choose from. Some of the villas have a private plunge pool.

Located on the island of Mahé and just 30 minutes from the airport, the romantic Banyan Tree is an all-villa hotel in a class of its own. We love that each one- and two-bedroom villa has its own private pool and, as at all Banyan Tree resorts, the spa is exceptional. There’s a choice of three restaurants plus the option for in-villa dining.

The deluxe Constance Lemuria is on Praslin, the Seychelles’ second largest island. No less than three spectacular beaches, an 18-hole golf course, Shiseido Spa, tennis courts, water sports, a Turtle Club for kids and beautifully-appointed suites and villas and a choice of there restaurants await. Stay between October and February for the chance to see Hawksbill turtles nesting and hatching on the beaches.

The Seychelles were made for island-hopping – what better way to discover all that these magical and diverse islands have to offer. We have created some wonderful multi-island holiday ideas such as the ultimate Millionaires Salad two-week trip, staying in luxury hotels in Mahé, Praslin and Silhouette Island.

We have selected a range of resorts which work brilliantly for families with children of all ages. There’s also a range of stopover options in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha – the perfect way to break the journey and create a two-centre experience.
