Lying just below the equator, the Seychelles is a fantastic year round destination. However we recommend April and October as the best months to visit, to enjoying scuba diving, great weather and calm seas.
Over one hundred islands are scattered in random perfection throughout the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, many years ago were filled with pirates looking for treasure! Today’s treasure lies in the picturesque beaches where the world’s softest sands meet tropical greenery and thousands of animal species. The beautiful nature found on these enchanting islands, is coupled with world-class resorts that boast universal appeal for all types of traveller: couples, families and friends alike.
Our fave hotels:
Four Seasons, Mahé has a fantastic kids club and a great range of activities for all ages. It perfectly balances high-end luxury with family-friendly charm. We love the great touch that a paper lantern is presented to you at the end of the meal to release into the tropical night skies.
And we are excited to report that Four Seasons at Desroches Island is set to reopen in early 2018. The five-star Seychelles resort in the Amirante Islands feels remote and secluded, but is just a 35-minute flight from the main island of Mahé. Feel like a true castaway as you explore our pristine tropical sanctuary edged by nine miles of soft white beaches.
Six Senses Zil Pasyon is our nominated What’s Hot destination for this month. One of our clients recently had this to say about this super indulgent resort:
“We were in paradise… I never wanted to leave the Island, I actually enjoyed it much more than any other 5 star hotels I’ve stayed at in the Seychelles. I told them to take away my passport and throw it away.
“The hotel was amazing, the service was amazing, the staff were amazing.”
