Start as you mean to go on, with a private helicopter flight whisking you from Mahé over the azure waters of the Indian Ocean to the granitic island of Félicité. You’ll land on the fluffy sands of Six Senses Zil Pasyon, where all your perceptions of a tropical island ring true: blonde beaches (Grand Anse is one of the best in the Seychelles), giant boulders and thick with primeval jungle as soon as you stray from the coast. It sounds almost too good to be true but here it is in nature’s version of 4K. If you didn’t think it could get any better then it does. Every villa has its own private pool villa, while your personal Guest Experience Maker is on hand to tip you off about the best snorkelling spots, book you into the beachside Six Senses Spa or guide you around the jungle the resort has helped to rewild over the last decade.
Wallowing in the indulgence of your resort is a tempting way to while away your days but the Seychelles’ abundant natural splendour and history just begs to be explored. We’ll sprinkle some guided tours throughout your holiday to do just that, including a visit to the archipelago’s largest island, Mahé, to see how the colonial rule of the French and British has influenced Creole life today. You’ll also leapfrog over to neighbouring Praslin, famous for its Eden-like Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, to explore the coco de mer palms of Fond Ferdinand Nature Reserve, one of its lesser-heralded wildernesses, and delve deep into its flora and fauna at the Praslin Museum. La Digue is an island where life really slows down, something you’ll notice as you’re cycling past ox carts and relaxing on one of the world’s finest beaches, Anse Source d’Argent.
Then, it’ll be time to hop back into your helicopter back to Mahé before catching a domestic flight to coralline Desroches, your second private island paradise. The stage this time is the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, which is further flung that Félicité and drips with seclusion and exoticism. Here you can really play out your Robinson Crusoe fantasies, paddling the gin-clear shallows in a kayak, pedalling the nine miles of cycling trails or doing your bit to keep this paradise perfect by joining a beach clean-up. You’re not quite alone on this private island, with the resort’s tortoise sanctuary offering the chance to meet and feed its resident giant Aldabra tortoises. Then it’s back to soaking up sandy luxury on the buttery beach. Paradise, found.
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.
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.
