Luxury holidays in the Seychelles

Top places for luxury beach holidays in the Seychelles

With the sun reflecting on the deep blue Indian Ocean, palm-fringed beaches and lush forests, the Seychelles is a picture-perfect destination and a delightful way to spend an unforgettable exclusive holiday. It offers a wide selection of luxurious retreats ranging from private villas with impeccable spa treatments, to boutique hotels featuring striking décor and sumptuous interiors.

The two top private islands here – Frégate Private Island and North Island – offer world-class luxury in a class of their own. (Albeit the two are very different.)

Elsewhere you’ll find great opulence in a good number of excellent places here – some smaller retreats and some larger hotels.

Denis Island Lodge

Each cottage and villa on Denis Island Lodge is only steps away from its white sandy beaches. So walk out to your own deserted beach, and then return for the lodge’s culinary delights from five-course, candle-lit dinners to Japanese nights with sushi cooking demonstrations.

Four Seasons Desroches Island

Desroche Island Resort offers pure luxury including a t-shaped swimming pool surrounded by elegant loungers under white canvas umbrellas. Experience exceptional standards from private, sumptuous champagne dinners to your made-to-order cocktails served in sparkling glasses at sundown.

Domaine d'Orangeraie

Le Domaine de l’Oranngeraie offers luxury within a striking Zen-style interior. Each Villa is unique and features Asian-themed décor combined with sumptuous materials and contemporary art. Renowned for its spa this property is perfect for those seeking a high level of relaxation.

Ephelia Resort

Surrounded by a lush landscape and scintillating lagoons, Constance Ephelia Resort stands amidst an abundance of nature and looks towards the deep blue Indian Ocean. Highlight is the opulent dining experience where you are spoilt for choice with five restaurants.

Fregate Island Villas

Providing exceptional opulence, Frégate Private Island is one of the world’s most exclusive island resorts. It offers guests a very smart (almost formal) luxury, with impeccable service. Expect fine-dining in classic French style, pampering at the Rock Spa and beaches of power-white sand.
