Setting the scene
With 67 free-standing villas ringed around the lush cove of Petite Anse on Mahe's southwest coast, the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles combines one of the island's most dramatically beautiful backdrops with the exclusive service and five-star credentials of the Four Seasons brand.
Perched on stilts in the jungle hillside the 67 villas which include 5 suites hide amongst tropical greenery. There are more living areas outside than indoors in these traditional Creole style homes, with each villa surrounded by a large hardwood deck and granite boulders incorporated into the sleek interiors. A big highlight is the infinity-edge plunge pool, perfectly positioned by comfortable chaises longues and a marble dining table.
There are two restaurants in the resort, Zez and Kannel. Zez is situated on the hilltop and offers stunning views of the land below. Cuisine here offers daily specials from around the globe.
Steps from the beach is Kannel which serves Creole and international cuisine, and features a variety of fresh fish and seafood. Attached is the Kannel Bar, where guests can enjoy a light lunch or a drink by the pool. The bar here is the perfect place for long nights drinking cocktails and taking in the staggering sunset.
All special occasions can be catered for from a party or event to a romantic meal for two on the beach with a private chef. As a nice touch a paper lantern is presented at the end of the meal to release into the tropical night skies.
The recreation and water-sports pavilion is located close to the beach and offers a range of activities, including kayaking, snorkelling, catamaran sailing, windsurfing, paddle boating, boogie boarding, Scuba diving and big-game fishing.
For those preferring to stay on dry land, the resort has an excellent fitness centre, where guests can take part in yoga classes, or take the walking trail round the lagoon. The concierge is always on hand to arrange excursions to local markets, museums or other islands.
Children are very welcome and have their own club for ages 4 to 12. There is a full range of indoor and outdoor activities available.
Seychelles International Airport is just a 30 minutes drive from the resort.
