The new Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island – the only resort on the entire island – officially opened on 1 March.
Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island offers a variety of accommodation options for families, couples and friends travelling together. One and two bedroom suites as well as a selection of villas with private plunge pools are dotted along the Sunset Beach or the Coral Beach, and for larger parties, there are three, four and five bedroom villas as well as the fabulously appointed seven bedroom Presidential Villa.
For a limited time, the hotel is offering a Breakfast & Dinner included package, and the full-board Paradise Escape offer.
With the opening of its second resort paired with Four Seasons Resort Seychelles on Mahé, Four Seasons also offers the only opportunity for seamless island hopping between two luxury resorts in Seychelles.
The first stop on any day of adventure, the Castaway Centre is headquarters for water sports including scuba diving, stand-up paddleboarding and ocean fishing; cycling treks through 15 kilometres (9 miles) of trails; or nature walks led by a member of the Island Conservation Society. Underwater explorers can join WiseOceans Marine Educator Hannah Harries for guided snorkelling.
At the nearby Discovery Centre, the naturally curious can learn about the unique Seychelles flora, fauna and sea life, as well as the history of Desroches Island, before heading out to the Tortoise Sanctuary to meet the locals or visiting a tiny Creole Village, where local craftspeople operate a furniture workshop.
With 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) of pristine white sand beaches circling the island, plus plenty of quiet groves for a shady repast, island picnics are a must, so the culinary team provide a selection of portable goodies, fresh and ready to go each morning at the Resort’s Deli.
Happier just to laze in the sun? Four Seasons attendants are always on hand at the outdoor pool and resort beach, ready to offer complimentary frozen treats or cold drinks and snacks from the pool bar and grill.
Young castaways aged 4 to 12 will love playing together at the Kids for All Seasons facility, including an outdoor playground, recreation pavilion and air-conditioned relaxation rooms, where Four Seasons staff supervise a daily program of games, discovery and exploration. There’s also a Teen Centre, ensuring that every member of the family has a place to call their own among myriad options to enjoy together.
