Four Seasons Resort Seychelles

Petite Anse
Mahé , Seychelles
248 393-000

Beachgoers who arrive at this 67-villa tree house–style getaway in the Indian Ocean come as much for the white-sand castaway beach as for the activities: diving, snorkeling, trimaran sailing, and introductions to the local island culture through Creole dance classes and shopping trips to the tiny capital, Victoria. But Four Seasons couldn’t resist making a design statement with its first Seychelles outpost. Set 262 feet above granite boulder-strewn forested slopes, French-colonial style meets Creole charm in ocean-view suites with 16-square-foot marble baths and walk-in rain showers that overlook jungles of indigenous palms and fruit trees. Bulgari bath products and four-poster beds are to be expected, but it’s the casual vibe, curated list of activities, and un-honeymoon aesthetic that makes this the new place to stay in the Seychelles.
