Outdoor dining with an ocean breeze watching the sunset
Although the intimate and romantic nature of Desroches make it a natural choice for honeymooners and couples on a special journey, Four Seasons Desroches Island Seychelles is also a great family choice. The resort has a dedicated club and activity programme for children under 12 as well as for teens. The beaches are idyllically child-friendly and the island’s wildlife sanctuary – complete with giant tortoises – is a family favourite.
The giant tortoises can weigh as much as 417 kg (919 lb) and can grow to be 1.3 m (4 ft 3 in) long.
Four Seasons Desroches Island is the location of the Island Conservation Society’s Tortoise Sanctuary. Guests are encouraged to visit the tortoise here to learn about their characteristics and habits, as well as the conservation challenges they face. There are currently 150 giant tortoises on Desroches – some of which are roaming wild – and it is hoped that the population will grow as the breeding programme takes effect.

Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is located on a lush peninsula on the southwest coast of Mahe in the Republic of Seychelles. This archipelago of 115 islands is a fascinating melting pot of slaves, explorers, pirates and exiles. Seychellois heritage is heard in the mingling of French, English and lilting Creole and tasted in the cuisine’s fusion of flavours. The Resort deftly melds the serenity of a deserted island with splendid luxury.
The Resort tempts you out of your villa with a wide range of activities, from the conviviality of the main rim flow pool, to Hatha yoga classes at the spa pavilion, and sunrise runs along glorious hiking trails.

The smart, intercontinental ZEZ venue commands spectacular ocean views from the top of the hill, while the beachside Kannel venue serves light meals and fresh seafood dishes.
For an evening in, visit the Resort library for books, DVDs and games. The Chefs celebrate Seychellois heritage, drawing on Mediterranean, Creole and Southeast Asian flavours in their delectable menus.
The Spa offering stunning views across the Petit Anse Bay
Le Nautique Guesthouse
To reach La Digue from Mahé, take the inter-island ferry or fly to Praslin with Air Seychelles and then hop on the 15-minute ferry to La Digue.
La Digue is the laid-back, sleepier sibling to larger Seychelles islands: Mahe island and Praslin. Nobody ever seems in a hurry on this (almost) motor-free island. Creole houses nestle under papaya trees, their window boxes and plant pots overflowing with flowers. Fishermen dawdle along the road carrying sticks hung with fish, while wooden pirogues glide across the water. This is where you’ll find bona fide Seychellois island life.
This beautiful boutique guesthouse perched at the water’s edge, with gorgeous views of Praslin.
There are seven luxurious rooms and friendly owners who’ll help you craft a super fun stay on the Seychelles’ most laid-back island “La Digue”.
Facilities may be limited to the pool and restaurant but the whole point of La Digue is tooling around on your bicycle to stunning beaches that are regularly ranked among the world’s best. Natasha will arrange bikes for you, along with kayaks, snorkelling gear and catamaran cruises.
Situated on virtually car-free La Digue, the most laid back of the Seychelles inner islands. The guesthouse is just five minutes from La Passe, the main village, and barely a mile from L’Union Estate, a heritage spice plantation where you’ll find the famous Anse Source d’Argent beach with its dazzling white sands framed by granite boulders.
Owner Natasha St Ange has deep roots on La Digue – her great-grandparents emigrated here from Reunion Island at the turn of the 20th century. The family farmed coconuts, patchouli and vanilla, and even designed La Digue’s signature ox carts, so if you want to ask anyone for island tips few people are as knowledgeable. At her side is her Australian husband, Stuart, and together they set the happy, inclusive tone that pervades Le Nautique, and which makes the close-knit staff of 14 feel more like an extended family.
The rooms have a fresh, modern design with castaway-style furniture in bleached wood, lamps made of thick nautical rope, ceiling fans with palm-leaf blades and white-framed, graphic prints of marine flora.
There are four king seafront rooms, a king garden room and two two-storey deluxe seafront rooms, with a downstairs living room and a romantic and luxurious master bedroom in the eaves.
Restaurant at Le Nautique
Seychellois chef Hubert offers a contemporary take on Creole cooking, such as sticky pork ribs from Denis Island with a takamaka sauce and potato wedges or confit octopus – a La Digue speciality – with a hint of balsamic. Flavours are clean and distinct, and plates are beautifully presented.
Anse Source d’Argent beach – a 5-minute stroll from the guest-house
The perfect way to see the Seychelles is per bicycle.
JA Enchanted Island Resort
JA Enchanted Island Resort sits in the midst of crispy clear blue seas and is encompassed by the St Anne National Marine Park. It’s a charming and discreet retreat across seven acres with just 10 villas – all with private pools and wraparound sea views. The resort is just 15 minutes by speedboat from the main island of Mahé.
This unique resort is set against a deep green tropical canvas dotted with the fiery red flowers of the flamboyant trees. A narrow path meanders up from the jetty to the delightful open-sided bar and restaurant and then snakes around the island to the 10 seaview villas and quiet hilltop spa. The small scale and thick foliage full of sweetly singing birds make for a secluded and romantic atmosphere.
The villas, styled in the Creole style, sit naturally within the vegetation looking out over the mesmerizing turquoise water.
Each villa has its own butler, private infinity pool and stairs down to a secluded swimming cove.
It’s honestly hard to leave the comfort of ‘home’, but if you are so inclined, there’s a charming wood-panelled library above the bar, a small gym and a spa offering 30 different massages and treatments in three sea-view pavilions. Complimentary kayaks and snorkels are also provided, and catamaran cruises can be arranged within the marine park.
In the villas, large double-height bedrooms incorporate a sitting area set before a picture window overlooking the jewel-coloured sea.
The island may be small, but the eight classic and two signature villas are generous and well designed. They are based on traditional chalet-style Creole architecture, sit on stilts and are characterized by the dark tropical wood used in their construction.
The highlight is the indoor-outdoor bathrooms with the same captivating views and a two-person tub set out on the balcony. The two, larger signature villas sleep four and feature a second structure with a dedicated downstairs living area and a second, upstairs bedroom. All the villas have private infinity pools and stairs down to secluded swimming coves amid the granite boulders.
