Once claimed to be the original Garden of Eden, the heavenly surroundings of the Seychelles is home to ultra-luxury hotels and private-island resorts, a thousand miles from Africa. All this isolation makes for a magnificent luxury honeymoon in the Seychelles or peaceful solo retreat.
Unplug from the world as you explore archetypal silky soft sand beaches framed by sky-high palms, native evergreen Takamaka trees and impressive rock formations found only on a luxury holiday in the Seychelles. Experience the thrill of a scenic helicopter flight for a truly remarkable perspective of the islands. Board a luxury yacht to discover coral coves and bays where the crystal-clear waters below abound with tropical marine life. And, close out your day watching the most surreal sunsets on Praslin’s Anse Lazio, often recognised as one of the most beautiful slivers of sand in the world on a beach holiday in the Seychelles.
Experience the island’s unique Creole culture through the simple island lifestyle, its art and of course the sensational Creole cuisine in the Seychelles. From the street food to fine dining open-air restaurants, you can taste the influences of Asian, French, African and Indian cultures in the Seychellois food. Expect lots of irresistible seafood and if you’re feeling daring why not try some of the island’s specialities such as shark chutney or roussette (a fragrant fruit bat curry) whose meat has been likened to venison.
When it comes to luxury travel in the Seychelles, every day can be beach day if you desire. But those that make even the smallest attempt to explore the islets are repaid handsomely, especially on a luxury family holiday in the Seychelles. From stumbling upon hidden rock pools, wandering the beautifully landscaped botanical gardens which house a wide collection of exotic and endemic plants and trees to hiking Morne Blanc National Park to reach the summit for dream-like panoramic views of the west coast of Mahé. On the UNESCO-protected Aldabra Islands you can get up close and feed the giant tortoise (some over 150 years old), that have been rescued back from the brink of extinction.

Strawberries and cream. Cheese and wine. Holmes and Watson. Some pairings are just meant to be together and this South Africa and Seychelles trip will prove that safari and beach deserves to be in that legendary bracket, too.VIEW EXPERIENCE
Mother Nature wasn’t short of inspiration when she created the Seychelles. This Indian Ocean archipelago is doused in so much natural splendour you’ll want it all to yourself. We’ll make sure you do on this trip, visiting two of its most exclusive private islands.VIEW EXPERIENCE
So blown away by the emerald beauty of the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve during his visit to the island of Praslin in 1881, General Charles Gordon proclaimed it as the original Garden of Eden. Along with the Fond Ferdinand Nature Reserve, Praslin’s bird-rich rainforests are some of the most handsome emerald patches we’ve ever laid our eyes upon.
What do Anse Source d’Argent, Anse Georgette, Anse Lazio and Anse Intendance got in common? They’re regularly voted among the best beaches in the world. For the Seychelles to boast four of those (as well as many others), that’s seriously impressive. This archipelago does sandy seclusion right. Don’t believe us? Come and see for yourself…
Floating in the Indian Ocean 250 miles and 35 minutes by plane from Mahé, Desroches Island is barefoot seclusion personified. Birdsong and the gentle roll of wavelets are the only sounds around, while the fourteen kilometres of vanilla-hued sands are delightfully footprint free. Treat this as Robinson Crusoe’s playground, where you can dive with manta rays in St Joseph’s Atoll, enjoy a game of pétanque on the beach or enjoy a private dinner on the top of a lighthouse with shimmering Indian Ocean views.
A private-island resort that’s at one with nature, Six Senses Zil Pasyon effortlessly weaves in between the boulders, blissful sands and primeval trees of Félicité. You'll be tuned in to nature’s metronome from the get-go, especially as this is a tropical idyll Six Senses is passionate about protecting. Explore the island’s wilds – which the resort has spent the last decade rehabilitating to its original state – via hiking trails, go on marine conservation excursions or just loll on the picture-perfect boulder-pocked beaches.
