Overlooking the picture-perfect, powder-soft white sands of world famous Petite Anse Bay, Four Seasons Seychelles has a truly enviable location, and is a firm favourite of those desiring an idyllic tropical escape with seriously luxurious trimmings.
From the moment you arrive, and sip champagne watching the sun set over the curve of the lush hills fringing the turqouise bay, and furry fruit bats fly chattering to their roosts, you know your stay is going to be a memorable one – for all the best reasons.
Four Seasons Seychelles accomodation is in individual villas, artfully placed to be private but all with stunning bay views. Each has its own pool and terrace and is furnished to an exceptional standard. You can also now take advantage of what they call their new “Residen-chelles” Menu of tailored vacation experiences – four themed Residen-chelles Escapes, ranging from the ultimate in castaway adventure to a blissful retreat, unforgettable family moments and exclusive pre-wedding celebrations for groups of friends.
Catering to adventurous souls seeking to unearth new skills and experiences, the Dream Escape offers days filled with discovery and evenings of spectacular events. Without stepping foot beyond the Residence Villa, master the fundamentals of surfing through private instruction in the 27 metre (88 foot) pool, or create personal postcard memories through a sketching class with a local artist on the villa’s hillside terrace.
Celebrate the day’s achievements by transforming the upper villa terrace into a personally designed speakeasy bar, with a Four Seasons bartender on hand to deliver a private cocktail class, or install a DJ booth for the evening to create a poolside lounge bar.
Escape to Serenity
Whether looking for a digital detox or simply for time to unwind, enter an oasis of tranquillity with this Escape. Convert a bedroom into a dedicated spa treatment suite and allow expert therapists to tailor rituals to suit the needs of each guest. Engage in poolside meditation and yoga to calm and clear the mind, while keeping the body well-nourished with fresh, healthy cuisine, all prepared by a Four Seasons chef in the Residence Villa’s kitchen.
Take a pause from the racing pace of the daily routine and spend quality time together as a family. Lounge around the pool as a private chef prepares a BBQ lunch, or capture treasured moments against the exotic backdrop of nature with a professional family photo shoot. Younger guests can expand their knowledge of the local marine life with a visit from the Resort’s Wise Oceans marine educator, making sea life-inspired arts and crafts as a souvenir. End the day with a home cinema experience with all the trimmings, as the Four Seasons team set up a movie night in the spacious living room or pool deck, to enjoy family favourites under the stars.
Theme each dinner to suit personal preferences; welcome local musicians to perform, host an evening salsa class with tapas refreshments, or sit back to enjoy the entertainment of a fireshow.
The “Final” Escape
Ahead of the big day, mark one of life’s greatest personal celebrations through a vacation with a group of close friends. Throw an in-villa spa party to indulge in relaxation, with mini-massages, facials and pedicures all available, or partake in a group yoga class. Prepare local or international favourites in a group cooking class or keep things active with a game of water volleyball in the pool.
Surprise the bride or groom-to-be with a party to remember. From freshly caught lobster and iced Champagne to the release of a Chinese paper lantern to celebrate their last nights of freedom, every evening may be tailored to suit the celebration.
Available as pre-determined itineraries or on a la carte basis, the Residen-chelles Menu provides complete flexibility and personalisation. From point of booking, a dedicated contact from the Resort’s Residences team will assist in planning every aspect of the holiday to suit each traveller’s needs, while private butler and event planning service is also provided by a Residential Host for the duration of all Residence Villa stays.
