There are 115 islands in the Seychelles archipelago, which is located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. It is home to numerous beaches, coral reefs, and nature preserves, as well as rare animals such as giant Aldabra tortoises, which are found nowhere else on the planet. The capital of Mahé is Victoria, and the island serves as a jumping-off point for visitors to the other islands. It also has beaches such as Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka, as well as the mountain rainforests of Morne Seychellois National Park and the Morne Seychellois National Park.
When it comes to creating this picture-perfect archipelago, there were no mistakes made. If a visit to Seychelles isn't already on your bucket list, it should be. Because of its sugar-white sand beaches and turquoise water that is so clear that you can see marine life from the shore, this 115-island haven is appropriately dotted with some of the world's most luxurious resorts.
From opulent spas to helicopter rides to being pampered on the best beaches in Seychelles, there's no end to the magnificent amenities offered at these top resorts - we're talking butler service, private islands, and world-class cuisine, to name a few highlights.
Here are four amazing resorts, that if you visit even one, you have lived a life worth living.
Four Seasons Seychelles
A ROMANTIC HIDEAWAY SET IN A TROPICAL PARADISE
It has never felt more luxurious than when you are living in a treehouse. A large verandah with a daybed pavilion, private infinity pool, whirlpool, outdoor shower, and unrivaled views of both the surrounding jungle and the spectacular Petite Anse Bay are featured in each of the 67 tree-top villas and suites at the Four Season Resort Seychelles. It's so heavenly that you might not want to leave your room again.
It would be a shame to stay put, however, because the idyllic Petite Anse beach is just a short walk from the resort. Take a shuttle or walk down a forested path to the most luxurious sand you've ever experienced. Seriously, it's as if you're getting a foot massage with every step you take!
If lounging by the sea isn't enough to help you forget about your worries, visit the spa for a shell massage or a marine mineral facial to help you forget about them. When the urge to eat strikes, the two main restaurants will not let you down. If you want to accompany your mouthwatering meal with a side of breathtaking views, choose between the verdant hills or the glistening beach.
There's something for everyone at this opulent resort, from surfing lessons to hiking and sailing excursions to spa treatments. Are you looking to increase the level of romance in your life? Enjoy a couple's treatment at the spa, learn how to cook Creole cuisine in the Creole cooking class, or relax in a bath prepared by your own personal bath butler.
Six Senses Zil Pasyon
Celebrate life as nature intended
Staying at Six Senses Zil Pasyon is about as close to being in paradise as you can get without actually being there. This luxurious resort, which occupies one-third of the private island of Félicité, is an excellent example of what can be achieved when you combine a spectacularly beautiful private island with modern villas and top-of-the-line service.
On the immaculate coral-ringed beaches, you won't have to contend with throngs of people. Guests can enjoy private pools, sundecks, and unbeatable views of either the garden or the ocean from each of the resort's villas (there are 28 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom options).
A kitchen, dining room, large patio, and sweeping views are all included in the price of one of the larger two-level residences, which have even more impressive design features.
It wouldn't be paradise if there weren't any spas. Choose from one of the five treatment villas, which are named after the island's ecosystem: Rock, Cave, Nature, Ocean, and Floating Villa.
Other activities include island hopping cruises, kayak trips to Coco Island, which is a marine protected area, Creole language lessons, yoga classes, diving excursions, and movie nights on the beach.
When it comes to dining, the three restaurants are well worth the calories you consume. Ocean Kitchen, which celebrates the area's "aquatic surroundings" by featuring locally sourced fish, fruit, herbs, and vegetables, will appeal to vegetarians and vegans.
DISCOVER THE ULTIMATE LUXURY OF SEYCHELLES RESORTS.
A hilltop villa with breathtaking views, an infinity pool, and butler service is something that many people dream about. All of this and more is available at the ultra-luxurious Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas resort. This Maia resort, perched high above the magnificent Anse Louis beach, exudes a sense of seclusion.
Because of the lavishness of its 30 secluded villas, you'll forget what it's like to live in anything but the lap of luxury. Even the bath products are luxurious—how about some Hermès? Do you recall the private pool? One of them is a shallow wading area complete with water lounge chairs, and the other is an infinity pool with views of the surrounding mountains.
Remember I mentioned a butler? Additionally, he or she can assist with planning off-site activities and excursions, such as making dinner reservations, stocking the refrigerator with drinks and snacks, and scheduling spa services. The butler policy at the resort is "whatever, wherever, whenever," and they mean it when they say it.
It is the only dining option available on the resort grounds, which is the TecTec restaurant. It has five menus, and the five chefs are willing to create items that are not on any of the menus. Additionally, the food can be served (and in some cases, prepared) in your villa, enjoyed on the beach, or consumed at a romantic table set up on the helipad. The Sunset Pool Bar is a convenient location to stop for a light snack or beverage while you swim in the pool.
While the Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas resort is designed to accommodate both children and adults, it is the ideal honeymoon destination for couples seeking an unbeatably beautiful and top-notch luxury experience in the Seychelles.
Fregate Private Island
"Part tropical paradise, part wild isle – a place where brochure-worthy beaches are inhabited by creatures seemingly plucked from the Galápagos." -National Geographic
Spend your time in our conservation sanctuary, which is surrounded by sapphire seas, and forget about the rest of the world. Located in the Seychelles, Fregate Island is a miniature Galapagos for those who are fortunate enough to discover it. The island has only 16 secluded Villas spread across three square kilometres of pristine nature. There are villas that blend into the spectacular scenery, which are secluded by lush foliage, and infinity pools that spill into the blue horizon, all of which are designed for carefree luxury in harmony with our precious environment. Our island paradise, which is teeming with wildlife, invites guests to immerse themselves in the splendor of nature's beauty, both physically and mentally.
