The people are friendly and the service is amazing; the beaches are pure white and the water crystal clear; the food is delicious, mainly creole – fresh and lightly spiced. Our Bespoke itineraries generally include two destinations so people can experience the different islands and enjoy the pleasure that is island hopping in The Seychelles.
Seychelles is perfect for those seeking pristine white beaches, unspoilt by time nor people. It is a nature lover’s paradise; green, lush, tropical, beautiful birds and amazing sea life and reefs. It is an impossibly romantic destination; private, quiet and luxurious with amazing service.
For the energetic there are a wide array of water activities available from snorkelling, to diving, deep sea fishing to fly fishing, sailing (yacht charters) to power boats.

Or just relax, chill out on the beach, sip cocktails, pamper yourself in the amazing spas, take a sunset cruise and have romantic dinners on the beach.
Mahe is the principal and largest island. Flying in you catch a glimpse of the beautiful landscape, tropical forests merge into white sandy beaches and azure waters, with its myriad of islands clustered around its shores. The capital is Victoria, with its bustling, vivid market that is well worth a visit. There are a number of boutique hotels and resorts on offer and we will help pick the right one for you.
The stunningly beautiful and tranquil Maia Resort & Spa where nothing is too much trouble, or the superbly managed Four Seasons with its private villas nestled on the gently sloping hillside overlooking a perfect turquoise bay. The H Resort is an intimate boutique resort that is an ideal retreat for families with an amazing kids club and access to the beautiful long white beach of Beau Vallon Bay.
Praslin and La Digue
Praslin is the second largest island and is home to the world famous Anse Lazio beach and the Vallee de Mai (a UNESCO protected palm forest). Again there are a number of delightful places to stay on the island but Constance Lemuria Resort gets our vote. Set amidst extensive grounds, including a golf course and three different beaches, the hotel has one of the best kid’s clubs we have seen and the staff are very welcoming.
The charming granitic La Digue island is a short hop away and is full of character. Domaine de l’Orangeraie offers a lovely retreat from which to explore the island and discover its award winning beaches.
A short helicopter ride from Mahe the stunning North Island is one of the world’s most luxurious havens and the epitome of barefoot luxury. The atmosphere is laid back but yet you want for nothing; it is sophisticated but lacking pretention. You can have everything you wish for from lobster at every meal to spaghetti bolognaise – it is totally up to you. Paradise on earth!
Fregate Island is yet another private island hideaway and is discreet, unspoilt and stunningly beautiful with 7 different beaches to choose from. Alternatively you may choose to spend a lazy afternoon by the pool in your private villa surrounded by birds calling and waited on by your private butler. However you decide to spend your time you will feel bereft when you leave its shores.
Further to the north lies the truly tranquil Denis Island; small, remote, beautiful and relaxed are a few of the words that describe it. While to the south, Desroches Island is a sublime coral island surrounded by white, soft sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and a protective reef which is home to some of the best diving sites in the Seychelles.
Other areas in The Seychelles that may be of interest are visiting the World Heritage Site of Aldabra where there are more giant tortoises than the Galapagos Islands. Or for the very keen, salt water fly fishing on Alphonse is considered a fly anglers paradise. This spectacular wilderness offers ten thousand acres of white, unblemished sand flats offering easy wading and world class fishing.
