White sand beaches, light blue waters everywhere you look, and thick, green foliage made up of the most beautiful plants ensure that immersing yourself in this paradise is an easy task. For a place as serene as this, there isn’t a shortage of luxurious resorts and hotels that combined with the natural beauty of Seychelles create an unforgettable and relaxing atmosphere. Here are five of our favorite luxury hotels and resorts in Seychelles!
Four Seasons Seychelles
Four Seasons is a name that doesn’t need much explaining. Luxury and comfort, embedded in the brand identity, are at the very core of everything you will find in, at or around the Four Seasons. Their Seychelles resort is no exception. The resort has been a part of the island of Mahe since 2009.
With 67 villas, 62 one-bedroom and 5 luxurious two and three-bedroom villas, the resort is designed to reflect the local Creole style by using wood and stone elements both indoors and outdoors. Sitting on a lavish hillside leading down to a beautiful beach, the Four Seasons Seychelles fully takes advantage of this stunning location. Each of the villas in the resort feature an infinity pool, deck, outdoor shower and an open-air reading pavilion with daybed.
Banyan Tree Seychelles
Banyan Tree Hotel Seychelles embodies a plantation-like atmosphere and ambiance combined with the otherworldly beauty of Seychelles. A resort that excels in privacy and stunning surroundings sits on the Anse Intendence beach on the main island Mahé. This resort works with its surroundings, not against them and each of the buildings’ interiors and exteriors reflect that.
There are 60 villas altogether and the majority are either beachfront or hillside. Many elements in the resort reflect Asian culture – from details within interiors to spa treatments in the wellness center that offers in-villa treatments as well. Lay down on the crisp white bed linens or lounge around the private pool or the beach; relaxing has never felt better.
Six Senses Zil Pasyon
Located on the private island of Félicité, full of gargantuan granite rocks and coral beaches, Six Senses Zil Pasyon is an eco-resort that seamlessly blends impeccable hospitality with the serene environment that is at the very core of this paradise-like island. The various villas available at Six Senses Zil Pasyon feature elements like infinity pools, sun decks, vaulted ceilings, and large windows that open fully to blend the living and bedroom area with the outside terrace.
Harmony defines Six Senses Zil Pasyon and therefore it is by no surprise that the holistic wellness spa offers treatments that center around rejuvenation. Five double treatment villas are available.
