Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is a remote hillside retreat, overlooking the idyllic bay of Petite Anse, just 30 minutes drive from Mahe International Airport. It covers a secluded area of 170 acres and comprises 67 villas and suites that emphasise the natural simplicity of treetop living. All villas and suites are perched on stilts within a jungle of coconut, mango and cinnamon trees and feature a glass walled bathroom, open air shower and infinity edge plunge pool. Each is decorated in a traditional Creole style with natural timber and brick throughout and is surrounded by a large deck.
The hotel has two restaurants; one offering spectacular ocean and sunset views from the top of the hillside and the other with a beachside location and views of the water; both serve an eclectic mix of cuisines from Mediterranean specialities and Arabic dishes to traditional Creole and Asian cuisine, a selection of sushi and sashimi and a variety of fresh fish and seafood. Other hotel facilities include two lounge bars, an outdoor swimming pool that combines four pools in one, a water sports pavilion offering snorkelling and other water activities, a fitness centre and spa.
