A Luxury Seychelles Honeymoon

OVERVIEW

A stunning archipelago of 115 pristine islands scattered across the impossibly blue Indian Ocean - the ultimate destination for an exclusive Seychelles luxury honeymoon, a romantic rendezvous or a family retreat. These steep vertical islands lure travelers with some of the most spectacular mountain top views, crystal clear waters, crescent shaped white powder beaches, and massive granite rock formations on the planet. With warm weather year round, the air and water become one, permitting you the inexplicable experience of a seamless transition from the beach to the water. Still undiscovered, a luxury honeymoon in the Seychelles embodies unparalleled natural beauty, a raw beauty you will find nowhere else in this world, a raw beauty that quite frankly surpasses our ability to convey. We can show you and we can guide you, but you'll need to see it for yourself. With direct flights from all over Africa, this is the perfect way to relax at the end of your luxury safari or to commemorate new beginnings with our signature Seychelles Luxury Honeymoon.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • White Talcum Powder Beaches: Thousands of long crescent shaped beaches and seductive private granite boulder alcoves with sand as soft as talcum powder lead into the majestic Indian Ocean, a bathtub of iridescent blues from royal to turquoise.
  • Snorkeling/Diving with Sea Turtles, Sting Rays and Whale Sharks: Consistently rated as one of the best diving destinations in the world, sea turtles, sting rays, whale sharks and an abundance of brightly colored tropical fish decorate the healthy coral reefs and boulder strewn granite alcoves. All of our recommended resorts below feature these world class reefs steps from your daybed - we couldn't bring the experience closer to you if we tried.
  • Breathtaking Vistas: Steep granite mountains are the signature of the Seychelles. The panoramic views are simply breathtaking and can be appreciated anywhere, from your private villa to the beachside restaurant to the mountain top spa to the view from the car window. 
  • Giant Tortoises: The famous Aldabra Giant Tortoise is native only to the Seychelles. On many of the islands, these giants roam free. Topping out at an astonishing 660 pounds, these gentle vegetarians are just begging for an afternoon snack of leaves which they are more than happy to eat right from your hands.
  • Fishing: Trolling for Marlin, handline fishing for Red Snapper or fly fishing on atolls for Bonefish, the fishing in the Seychelles is extraordinary and, even on a bad day, will have you bringing home enough fish for everything from freshly prepared sashimi and filets to whole roasted fish for you and your new friends at the resort.  
  • Conservation: Epic Road can arrange special access to work with world-renowned scientists and conservations that call the Seychelles home. Activities include working with the Giant Aldabra Tortoises as well as Sea Turtles while they nest and lay eggs and later watching the babies hatch and take their first daunting steps into the big blue sea.
  • Spas: World class treatments, hot tubs, jacuzzis, steam rooms, saunas, and relaxation rooms set in manicured jungles or atop impossibly high mountains with views for as far as the eye can see. This is the destination for spa lovers. 
  • Activities: Day trips to islands where only bikes and ox carts line the sand roads, visits to local markets, hiking, mountain biking, wind surfing, Creole cooking classes, mountain-top yoga and meditations, kayaking, surfing, bodyboarding as well as all of the activities outlined above make the Seychelles a perfect destination for those seeking rest as well as those seeking stimulation.

REST & REJUVENATE

  • MAHÉ: The main island with its sublime panoramic views is the first entry point into the Seychelles. Our recommended properties below each offer massive stunning villas with private infinity pools and indoor and outdoor showers/tubs tucked into the side of steep granite mountains with views that will literally take your breath away. Mahé is a great choice for those seeking relaxation or activities - the easiest island to navigate as well as the best starting point for day trips to other islands.
    • Four Seasons: A choice destination for those seeking a bit of action. We love this property for its exceptional service, its array of restaurants and bars and its amazing spa with sensational views. This property is home to the softest sand in the Seychelles and provides incredible diving and snorkeling right off the shoreline. 
    • Maia: Simply put, the best villa on Mahé with views that will give you goosebumps. A private butler to tend to your every need, a spa built into the jungle that will blow your mind, and although there is only one restaurant on property, it has 5 chefs each specializing in a different type of cuisine, making sure to provide you with a varied gourmet selection every day and every night of your stay.
    • Savoy: A luxury property on one of the best beaches in the Seychelles with a gorgeous spa and a delicious restaurant, all at a reasonable price makes this the best value in the Seychelles. This price does come at a cost, however, as the Savoy does not feature rooms with private pools and outdoor showers/tubs.
  • PRASLIN: The second largest island in the Seychelles is home to Anse Lazio, consistently rated as one of the world's top ten beaches, and an incredible 18 hole golf course.
    • Raffles: This resort is the definition of polished luxury. Exquisite private villas, a pristine modern spa, and gourmet gastronomy are the hallmarks of this sleek retreat. Topping if off with its gorgeous beach and snorkeling just steps from your lounge chair, this property oozes luxury. 
  • PRIVATE ISLANDS: Offering a Robinson Crusoe lost in paradise type experience, these private islands are the ultimate sanctuary for those seeking privacy, space, silence, and relaxation while immersing into the natural world through a multitude of activities on offer. 
    • North Island (Inner Islands): Located on a private island only accessible by helicopter, North Island executes with precision their mantra of anything, anywhere, anytime. BBQ lobster and Rosé on your private yacht while trolling for Marlin on the edge of the continental shelf? A treasure hunt for the kids on the desolate beach led by the island's 'pirate' in a costume that would make Johnny Depp jealous? A string quartet playing the song from your first dance as your helicopter lands on the island's private helipad? Yes, is the answer to all of those questions. With only 11 villas each at 5,000 square feet and with your own private butlers on call 24/7, this is barefoot luxury at its finest and simply put one of the most exclusive resorts on the planet. While rates include just about everything from deep sea fishing and scuba diving from your private yacht to guided hiking, kayaking and mountain biking, this is a property that if you need to ask how much it is, you probably can't afford it. 
    • Fregate Island (Inner Islands): Accessible by plane, helicopter or private boat, this exclusive island's 16 private villas are polished with a feeling of traditional luxury rather than barefoot luxury. Home to 7 beaches, one frequently voted 'most beautiful beach in the world', 2000 free-roaming Aldabra Tortoises, hundreds of thousands of tropical birds, romantic and unique tree-house dining venues, expansive plantations of exotic fruits and vegetables, a natural outdoor playground for children, a nature inspired spa facility and so much more. Each massive villa is beautifully nestled into the coastal line, and features its own private pool with a sunken jacuzzi, a luxurious terrace and a daybed overlooking the lush jungle on one side and the deep blue seas on the other. The entire experience makes it almost impossible to part with.
    • Deroches Island (Outer Islands): A sizable private island accessible by plane or helicopter, Deroches' stunning villas have private pools and indoor/outdoor showers and soaking tubs. The spa is beautiful and has a lengthy list of treatments. The beaches are pristine and the snorkeling right in front of your private villa is phenomenal. A fleet of private yachts offer fishing, sunset cruises and diving expeditions. You can cruise around the island on mountain bikes or call a driver who will be at your door with a golf cart in a matter of minutes. Home to the Island Conservation Society, you have the unique opportunity to dive with experts, watch sea turtles nest and lay eggs and adopt baby Giant Aldabra Turtles, which will soon enough room free on this island.
    • Félicité Island & Six Senses Zil Pasyon: Six Senses Zil Pasyon is located on the private island of Félicité, featuring an abundance of indigenous flora & fauna paired with the Seychelles' distinctive massive granite rock formations and talcum powder white sand beaches. Six Senses Zil Pasyon is the only resort to occupy this dramatically gorgeous island conveniently surrounded by similarly unspoiled satellite isles including La Digue, Grande Soeur, Petite Soeur, Coco & Marianne - thereby giving you the best of both worlds - the exclusivity of sojourning on your very own private island with the option to expand your horizons and venture through an astounding archipelago of 115 isles. The property takes full advantage of the stunning Indian Ocean, so whether you're taking an afternoon dip in the pool, enjoying a signature therapeutic massage or simply relaxing from your oceanfront villa, any & all of your experiences at Six Senses Zil Pasyon will inevitably be backdropped by sweeping views of turquoise seas and ambient sounds of crashing waves. Choose from Félicité's three pristine beaches, a variety of aquatic adventures and a selection of mind-blowing luxury villas (28 one-bedroom villas, 2 two-bedroom villas and 17 private residences) featuring expansive panoramic decks, infinity pools, sunbeds, outdoor showers & private gardens.
