The hotel is located on the private island of Félicité, about 55 kilometers north-east of Mahé, and close to the well known islands of Praslin and La Digue. The dramatic granitic island is around one-square mile in size and is characterized by its large granite boulders and picture-perfect beaches (the best being La Penice just around the corner from the main resort). The forested center of the island rises up to a peak of 213 meters, providing a range of walking trails for guests to explore.

When to go
Situated just south of the equator, the Seychelles have a warm tropical climate. The consistently warm tropical weather makes the Seychelles a good year round destination. There is little fluctuation in warmth, with temperatures ranging from 24C to 31C all year round. From May to October a southeast trade wind can bring marginally cooler weather and fresh breezes. From November to March the northwest monsoon wind blows, typically raising temperature and humidity. December and January are the wettest months, but the rain falls in short sharp bursts before the sun comes out again.
