Any visit to a Four Seasons Resort comes with a guarantee that the accommodation will be to a certain standard, with exacting service to match.
And you get that here, at this luxurious property set on the South-West corner of the main island, Mahé. The hotel is a 40-minute drive from the airport along winding and, quite often, very hilly roads surrounded by dense jungle.
The resort is huge, in terms of acreage anyway, with all of the villa-style accommodation set on the hillside. Villas, all with their own infinity-edged pools, are well spaced out so privacy is maintained. Select one nearer the beach and forgo the view, or pick one high up on the hill with panoramic vistas across the sea. Whichever way you go, hotel buggies are readily available at all hours to give you a ride.
There is an impressive selection of activities on offer for all ages, including the rare chance to learn hands-on about marine biology, run by specialists in the subject. You can also go on a guided snorkelling trip to discover the wonders of the private reef.
But all of this and more comes at a cost. So if this property, like others in its competitive set, offered an all-inclusive package, it would be a bonus for guests because there really is nowhere else to eat within the vicinity, and it would be much easier all around.
The experience at the Four Seasons is not particularly Seychellois in architecture or design, but what you get is a fantastically laid-out and thought-through resort, perfect for couples and families alike. But be warned, during school holiday periods the resort will be massively popular with families.
