Expertise in designing a holiday to the Seychelles is all about comparison. Visiting six gorgeous hotels is not enough. It is our role to ensure we know the best Seychelles hotels to choose and both Bridget and Illona have had to suffer untold nights sampling the delights of many. Discuss with them what you are looking for and allow them to design the perfect Seychelles beach holiday for you.
Why we like the Seychelles?
Whereas the majority of the Maldivian resorts are built on tiny sand bars, around half of the islands of the Seychelles are more substantial with mountains, trees, villages and a local culture. This makes the Seychelles beach holiday a perfect option for those who need more than a sun lounger on holiday. Added to which the close proximity of the islands makes changing hotels relatively easy and thus variety to your Seychelles holiday.
What to expect on your holiday to the Seychelles
The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands sitting in the middle of the Indian Ocean half way between Africa and India. More than just a beach paradise, the Seychelles are a living museum of natural history and a sanctuary for some of the rarest species of flora and fauna on earth which include the smallest frog, the heaviest land tortoise and the only flightless bird of the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles, one of the world’s very last frontiers, promises adventure and breath-taking natural beauty in pristine surrounds still untouched by man.
Many of the resorts benefit from having their own island where you will find nature trails and naturalists, marine biologists, dive centres and for those who like sailing, some good charter opportunities.
