Luxury Seychelles

Our verdict:

Known for its provocative coco de mer or love nut and as the original site of the Garden of Eden, you don’t get much more seductive than the Seychelles. Push the boat out and stay at one of the luxury hotels on the main island of Mahé or perhaps Praslin Island, then head out to one of the smaller coral islands for some serious barefoot luxury.

Sainte Anne Resort & Spa

Tropical Sky says

Think picture-postcard islands, magnificent white sand beaches with sculptural granite boulders framed by casuarina and palm trees swaying in gentle sea breezes. This, coupled with some of the world’s most exquisite hotels and a host of special honeymoon treats, makes the Seychelles perfect for romance.

  • Luxury hotels
  • Stunning beaches
  • Two-island options

We know the Seychelles inside-out and have selected the very best of accommodation with romance in mind – from boutique hotels to luxury resorts and private islands. Most offer special treats for honeymooners too so don’t forget to tell us it’s your honeymoon when you book.

We’ve highlighted four options here to inspire you.

Enchanted Island Resort delivers exactly what its name suggests – an idyllic honeymoon escape just a ten-minute speedboat ride away from Mahé. Stay in one of ten pretty villas, each with its own private infinity pool, dine on exquisite cuisine and indulge in one of the fabulous therapies in the hilltop spa. The surrounding waters form part of the Sainte Anne National Marine Park, perfect for swimming and snorkelling, and the resort was voted the Seychelles’ leading resort in the 2017 World Travel Awards.

For something really special, head to Denis Private Island, 375 acres of palm-fringed island idyll – the epitome of barefoot luxury – with exceptional service, teeming bird life, its own scuba diving school and gorgeous accommodation with true Seychellois charm. We especially recommend the new Beach Villa with its own private plunge pool.

Raffles Praslin is a larger resort with 86 villas, a wide range of activities and arguably the best service in the Seychelles. The food here is superb and the spa is exceptional. The island of Praslin is a short flight or boat ride away from Mahé and has a wide range of hotels to choose from. Guests at the Raffles Praslin can enjoy golf at the nearby 18-hole course.

If you can’t decide which island is for you, how about this unique island-hopping itinerary for the perfect honeymoon….? Enjoy ten nights on Mahé, Praslin and La Digue for your once in a lifetime honeymoon – and it won’t break the bank, costing around £2,000 per person including all flights and transfers.
