Romance, adventure, discovery and ultimate bliss in a tropical paradise make a perfect fusion in Seychelles. Scattered like emerald gems in the turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean northeast of Madagascar and east off Africa, 115 eye-catching granite and coral islands of the Seychelles archipelago are an ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Covered with lush rainforests, rich in diverse, endemic flora and fauna, the Seychelles islands are world-renowned for their exclusive palm-fringed beaches with white-powder sands bathed by aquamarine ocean brimming with a myriad of sea-life species, a heaven for diving and snorkeling.
Once a safe buccaneers’ haven, this serene oasis of pristine nature and fascinating history nowadays boasts a reputation of the world’s best beach destination with utmost luxury of beachfront suites, infinity pools, world-class spa facilities. Exclusive hotels and superb resorts of Mahé, Praslin or La Dique islands are perfect for families, friends or individual travellers. The smaller private islands offer paradisiac retreat in boutique hotels and villas for celebrities, well-off folks and romantic couples craving for seclusion and lavish relaxation. Unwinding in a swanky private island villa with alfresco dining under the stars, newlyweds can enjoy here a truly royal honeymoon in total privacy and exclusive romantic atmosphere like Prince William and Kate Middleton did.
