The remote Seychelles comprise 115 granite and coral islands which have to be some of the most fascinating and beautiful on Earth. Scenically, the Seychelles have always been suggestive of the original garden of Eden, and there is now the chance to enjoy this paradise through an exclusive collection of deluxe beach resorts and exotic private islands.
Soft white beaches, Coco de Mer palms and lush wilderness filled with unique flora and fauna mean that beachcombers and bird-lovers alike will love the Seychelles. With crystal-clear waters teeming with shoals of tropical fish, snorkellers and scuba-divers will find it difficult to discover anywhere better, and the deep-sea fishing is also world class.
Though what sets the Seychelles apart from every other destination is their sheer beauty, which really is unsurpassed.
You can choose to base yourself at one destination and relax and explore from there. Alternatively, many of our clients choose to island-hop, staying at two or three different islands – we will transfer you seamlessly from island to island, whether by helicopter, plane, catamaran or boat.
