An Indian Ocean jewel

Seychelles luxury holidays


Founded 250 years ago, the idyllic Seychelles islands lie just four degrees south of the equator, but several hundred miles from anywhere else. In total there are just 115 islands scattered across this stunning section of the Indian Ocean. Palm-fringed and utterly idyllic, they are, for many, the true definition of paradise on Earth.


The main island, Mahe is home to the capital, airport and most of the population. Protected by coral reefs, it has 70 sand beaches, lush vegetation, forested peaks up to 1,000m high and coconut plantations to explore. Head into the Morne Seychellois National Park to see rare endemic plants and take scenic strolls.

Praslin & La Digue

While Mahé also acts as the cultural and economic heart of the country, don't forget its sister islands Praslin and La Digue, both of which boast extraordinary beaches and some outstanding swimming and diving spots as well as stylish places to stay and high-quality restaurants. Walk through the forested Vallee de Mai on Praslin to find the exotic nut of the coco de mer palm or simply indulge in the laidback charms of La Digue. Both offer superb resorts.

Incredible wildlife & adventures in nature

The Seychelles go far beyond the postcard images of white sands and private-pool resorts, though there are plenty of these to go around. Look beyond the sands to discover everything from world-class diving and snorkelling to superb sailing, fishing and kayaking. Then, away from those bath-tub-warm waters, the likes of golf and horseback riding make for truly memorable days out amid verdant landscapes. Hiking, too, is a wonderful way to get off the beaten track, with a network of well-marked trails bringing you between forested mountains, rushing rivers and those famously gorgeous coastlines.

It’s all knitted together by ultra-scenic island hopping trips, whether by catamaran ferry, short flights or even helicopter rides. Whatever you choose, you’ll soon find a remote, lost-island paradise of your very own.
