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.
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.
We’ve highlighted five hotels here to inspire you.
Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa boasts 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, 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 the spa is exceptional. There’s a choice of three restaurants plus the option for in-villa dining.
The deluxe Constance Ephelia is also on Mahé with two glorious beaches and fabulous rooms, suites and villas dotted around the glorious landscaped gardens, many of them overlooking the Port Launay National Marine Park. We love the new zip wire and climbing wall.
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 a choice of there restaurants await. Stay between October and February for the chance to see Hawksbill turtles nesting and hatching on the beaches.
For sheer romantic luxury, Denis Private Island is the epitome of a Seychelles escape – a 357 acre island with just 25 cottages, each offering complete privacy.
If you’re planning a holiday with the family, we have hand-picked a range of resorts which work brilliantly for families with children of all ages.
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 this three-island trip, staying in luxury hotels in Mahé, La Digue and Praslin.
We can also arrange a two-centre holiday combining a safari in Africa with the Seychelles.
