Seychelles

The Seychelles will make you feel like a happy castaway living in a tropical paradise. Situated in the Indian Ocean near east Africa, the Seychelles is an archipelago of islands that was uninhabited until the French arrived in the late 18th century. Today, the island has a remarkably multicultural society with an abundance of natural settings and wildlife that draw visitors from around the world.


Adventure on the high seas

One of the best ways to experience the beauty of the Seychelles is to charter a boat for fishing, island-hopping, snorkelling or diving. Bring your fresh catch of local tuna, red snapper, grouper or jobfish back to the Resort, where the chefs will prepare it according to your specifications—barbecued, in sushi, Creole-style or baked with just a hint of lemon to bring out the fresh taste.

The island of Mahé’s best-kept secret is the secluded, horseshoe-shaped beach at the foot of Four Seasons Resort Seychelles—one of the most beautiful in the world. Black granite boulders provide a dramatic backdrop to the powder-white sand and azure waters of the cove. The bay is sheltered by dense vegetation and the water is extremely calm, making it ideal for swimming and safe for families. Of the 115 islands that make up the Seychelles, one of the top destinations is Praslin, which boasts spectacular secluded shores. On La Digue, Anse Source d’Argent is one of the archipelago’s best beaches. Visit the tiny restaurant there for a taste of delicious Creole-inspired cuisine as you feel the sand between your toes. Explore the island on two wheels: Whizzing around the neighbouring plantation on a bike is the best way to see vanilla fields and spot giant tortoises. Don’t miss the unusual rock formations off La Digue’s coast.

Artful shopping

Instead of glitzy malls, designer stores and international chains, Seychelles visitors will find local art galleries and quaint shops selling handicrafts. Kenwyn House, a 19th-century French colonial mansion, is home to an art gallery and high-end jewellery store specializing in South African diamonds and tanzanite. The George Camille Studio showcases the work of its namesake, a local artist who works with a variety of media to capture the colour and spirit of Creole life.

For retail therapy closer to home, the Resort’s Spa features products from Ila, Sodashi and local brand Yi-King, whose products are all blended in the Seychelles. Signed, limited-edition prints by local artist Alyssa Adams are available exclusively for Resort guests to purchase. Depicting the wild beauty of the jungle and inlaid with real gold, these souvenirs to treasure are sure to evoke beautiful memories of your time in Petite Anse.


Gardens and views

Explore more of the islands’ natural splendour at the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens at Mont Fleuri. More than 100 years old, this national treasure comprises 2 hectares (5 acres) of landscaped and beautifully maintained tropical gardens. The orchid house, showcasing orchids endemic to the islands, is a must-see. On the journey home, take a drive on the Sans Souci route in Morne Seychellois National Park, and stop at Mission Point to enjoy some of the island’s most stunning vistas from the road’s cool highlands.

Island nightlife

With a few notable exceptions, nightlife is largely a low-key affair in the Seychelles. Dance the night away at Eden Island, an island marina close to Victoria, the capital city of the Seychelles. Enjoy cocktails or a local SeyBrew beer at one of the area’s many restaurants and bars as you watch the yachts bob on the harbour’s moonlit waters.

Romance by moonlight

While the island’s bars, restaurants, casinos and discos are undeniably lively, friendly and fun, romance blooms naturally in the Seychelles. Enjoy an intimate candlelit dinner on the Resort’s beach as you watch the sky break out in an array of sunset colours. End your meal with a walk along the shore and light a sky lantern together, then watch it float into the star-filled sky.

The Seychellois life

Built in 1840 and renovated in 1999, the colourful Sir Selwyn Clarke Market in Victoria remains the bustling heart of the capital and the best place to buy fresh fruits, fish, vegetables and spices. There’s also an array of boutiques and shops selling everything from art to textiles. For an ultimate taste of the Seychelles, stop at a roadside stall to buy a fresh coconut. For just a few rupees, a local vendor will select a tasty coconut and slice it open before your eyes. It’s the best way to hydrate after a day in the sun.

You can also catch a glimpse of life in the Seychelles without leaving the Resort. Every Saturday evening, Kannel comes alive with a Creole barbecue buffet featuring local dishes like grilled asparagus with mixed bean salad, grilled octopus skewers with sweet chilli glaze, reef fish slow-cooked Creole style, oven-roasted pork loin with spicy honey, and fish with curry. A local band and dancers will get diners on their feet, and on-site market stalls showcase local crafts and fashion. Save some space to enjoy “La Daube,” a delicious specialty dessert made with sweet potato cooked in coconut milk.


Four Seasons Resort Seychelles


Plan the once-in-a-lifetime vacation you always thought you’d take. Discover stunning tree-top villas, secluded beaches and endless opportunities for fun at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, a lush island sanctuary in the breathtaking Indian Ocean.

Nearly all of us strive to achieve a feeling of balance and inner harmony. At the Spa at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, guests can now use a practice found in ancient Chinese wisdom to help re-establish or maintain that harmony of mind and body by tapping into their master element.


Seychelles Spa Treatments Help You Find Your Master Element

Are you earth or sky? Wind or water? Four Seasons and local brand Yi-King offer personalised spa treatments based on ancient Chinese wisdom.

 “Yi-King millenary wisdom teaches about the links between our organs, glands, the eight elements and plants, which are man’s natural medicine on earth,” says Coralie Mouge, owner of local brand Yi-King, which bases its products on the ancient concept of the same name.

The elements Mouge refers to are those traditionally recognised by Chinese medicine—sky, wind, water, lake, mountain, earth, thunder and fire—and are also referred to as master elements. “Yi-King millenary wisdom teaches about the links between our organs, glands, the eight elements and plants, which are man’s natural medicine on earth,” says Coralie Mouge, owner of local brand Yi-King, which bases its products on the ancient concept of the same name.
