There are places in the world that are the stuff that dreams are made of, and the Seychelles archipelago is one of these…a luxury tourist paradise and a choice destination for a relaxed and romantic vacation.
In 1609, John Jordan, a British navigator, noted in his travel log:
“We are in an earthly paradise, wooded, rich in water, coconuts, fish, flowers and birds.” The archipelago consists of 115 islands and islets scattered around Mahé, the archipelago’s main island and the center of the country’s economy and tourist industry.
The preserved beauty of its islands offers visitors an exceptional diversity of landscapes. Coves, desert, immaculate beaches, lush vegetation and crystalline waters create the sumptuous decors that inspired a British general to call it “An earthly Paradise before the Fall.” And highlighting the Seychelles’ collection of idyllic landscapes are its beaches many of which have been officially classified among the most beautiful in the world.
In addition to attracting sun and nature lovers, the Seychelles has often been a source of inspiration and imagination. In search of peace and exoticism, Ian Fleming isolated himself in the archipelago to write his last James Bond novel, “For Your Eyes Only.”
Petite Anse on the west coast of Mahé is a prestigious setting with lush vegetation bordered by a fine sand beach. It is one of the island’s most beautiful sites and thus the venue chosen for the five star Four Seasons Resort, which takes full advantage of this Eden like situation.
The 67 villas and 5 suites are either on stilts, along the seashore or nestled on the side of a hill overlooking the idyllic landscape. The refined villas and suites are sensually enchanting for more than just the magnificent view. Carefully decorated in a modern tropical style, they have generous dimensions with the exteriors larger than the interiors creating a totally relaxed atmosphere.
And as if the pleasures of the Indian Ocean weren’t enough, the hotel is equipped with a 517 square meter swimming pool, a luxurious dreamlike addition to the charm of an establishment already blessed with an idyllic location.
The pool is only one of many unforgettable experiences at the Four Seasons Resort. The spa for example, high up on the hill, possesses an uninterrupted view of the Petite Anse and proposes holistic treatments designed for the guests’ relaxation and well-being.
The hotel has two restaurants : ZEZ and Kannel, and two bars, but more romantically minded guests can enjoy dinner and the legendary Seychelles sunset in the privacy of their villa. The Four Seasons can also organize weddings in this superb site, enabling couples to reinforce their love for one another and for this unforgettable island.
One of the hotel’s numerous activities enables guests to create their own post cards with the help of a professional artist; illustrations which make wonderful souvenirs of a vacation in Paradise.
