Once named the ‘Original Garden of Eden’, the stunning Seychelles make an exclusive and heavenly holiday destination. A 115-island archipelago, this year-round tropical Indian Ocean retreat is just wonderful for honeymooners and secluded getaways.
Stay on one island or hop between a few – whatever you choose, you can indulge in natural beauty, breathtaking ocean views, white-sand beaches and vibrant wildlife. Although becoming a more popular luxury destination, the beaches remain quiet and serene.
Diving, snorkelling, golf, jungle walks, and windsurfing are just a few of the activities available at the resorts here. The enthralling Vallee de Mai Reserve boasts two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the planet’s largest raised coral atoll, and a prehistoric palm forest where rare plants that are unique to the Seychelles thrive.
Visitors can stay in amazing treehouse accommodation or villas fit for royalty - all resorts provide superb service and outstanding amenities. The spas are wonderful, while cuisine at the various venues ranges from mouth-watering Creole and seafood to international fare and plenty of fresh fruit.
One of the smallest capitals in the world is Victoria. Explore on foot in just two hours; enjoy the Botanical Gardens, Natural History Museum and pick up souvenirs at handicraft stands at the market.
