This stunning resort has tree-top inspired villas cleverly positioned to make the most of their elevated settings on a lush hillside overlooking the island’s south west shores. Inside they consist of sitting areas, opulent Four Seasons-styled bathrooms and between one and six bedrooms, whilst outside there’s an expansive deck with dining areas, day beds and infinity-edge pools offering wonderful sunset views of the bay. The resort is a hideaway of romantic simplicity and of course offers the legendary Four Seasons service and attention to detail.
The Seychelles form an archipelago of 115 islands scattered across the equatorial Indian Ocean. First colonized by the French in 1770, the islands still feel undiscovered and only about 20 are inhabited. The Seychelles have no indigenous population and today they display a vibrant ethnic diversity – with the largest groups being of French, African, Indian and Chinese descent. A strong French Creole influence is evident in culture, custom and cuisine.
The Four Seasons Resort has a full range of water sports on offer together with a host of cultural excursions including a visit to the vibrant and bustling Victoria Market, where you will see everything from local crafts made from coconut to silk paintings and handmade jewelry. Fishermen bring their catch to the fish market, and stalls sell fragrant spices, citronella tea and local delicacies.
Children will be in safe hands at the ’Kids for All Seasons’ club open all day for children aged 4 to 12 years old, whilst grown-ups can simply relax at the hilltop spa, enjoy watersports, explore the jungle or take a boat trip to see the largest population of giant tortoises outside the Galapagos.
At Four Seasons, guests enjoy a unique vantage point from which to explore the sights, sounds and experiences that are typical of the Seychelles.
