Four Seasons Seychelles: The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>Seychelles>Mahe>Four Seasons Seychelles

The Four Seasons Seychelles has beautiful rooms, a truly lovely beach, and absolutely immaculate service, making it one of our favourite options on Mahe.

What’s the Four Seasons Seychelles really like?

The 67 ultra stylish rooms and suites are scattered across the hillside above the beautiful beach of Petite Anse. And while the hill may be steep (definitely requiring golf carts to get around) the higher you go, the more stunning the views. All of the villas are decorated in an airy Creole style using plenty of natural wood and stone as well having an ensuite bathroom, they have wildly romantic outdoor showers and plunge pools. This is a truly Seychellios experience- the villas are all hidden away in the tropical hillside- Garden View villas are the standard, rooms whereas paying a little extra for Ocean View, Hilltop Ocean View or, (highest of all) Serenity villas takes you further and further up the hillside and rewards you with better and better views. There’s no denying that the highest rooms are something of a hike to get to, but there are plenty of on-site golf carts to whisk you up there if you don’t fancy the walk.  Suites are similarly located scattered up the hillside and have two or three bedrooms with an extra sitting area, and there are also some vast private residences in the upper section of the resort. Please let us know if you have strong preferences about being in the upper or lower parts of the resort so we can recommend rooms accordingly.

What can I do at the Four Seasons Seychelles?

If you can be lured out of your room (and we’d understand if you couldn’t be) there are two restaurants serving Creole and International style food, a lovely spa in a gorgeous spot overlooking the bay and a wealth of activities on offer. There are walking and jogging trails, a fitness centre, yoga classes, creole cookery classes, kayaking, snorkelling trips with Wise Oceans marine experts, catamarans and windsurfers to take out, art classes and surfing lessons. If you leave the resorts there are some fantastic hikes up above Petite Anse bay, offshore deep sea fishing and plenty to explore on Mahe. We should also mention that despite the hilliness of the resort, the Four Seasons is an incredibly family-friendly resort, with a programme of children’s activities, baby sitting services and a junior spa tailored towards younger visitors.
