Dreaming of a luxury Seychelles beach holiday? Aren’t we all! It’s a destination simply made for the joys of cocktail-sipping and feet-dipping. You’ll lounge on a sunbed with a frozen margarita and then paddle your toes in the calm waves lapping up on the shore. Sounds like heaven, right?

We have a list of the best luxury beach hotels in Seychelles for you to take a closer look at. After all, relaxing on white sandy beaches is a big part of the premium Seychelles experience. In fact, some of the villas found in Seychelles’ five-star hotels have direct access to a private part of an already secluded beach. We bet you’ve never experienced holiday bliss quite like this before.

So, what are our top picks for the best beach resorts in Seychelles? We have five contenders you need to know about.

Have the ultimate beach day at Constance Ephelia Resort

With two stunning beaches to choose from, Constance Ephelia Resort is a five-star Seychelles hotel any beach-goer will absolutely fall in love with.

Choose a spot on the sands and stay put all day watching the sun move slowly from east to west. You’ll barely have to lift a finger, other than to order an ice-cold drink to cool you down or grab a bite to eat at the Helios beachfront restaurant when you feel a little peckish in the mid-afternoon.

And on days you’re up some thrills, you have a variety of exciting water sports to keep you entertained. Sail the seas in a hired canoe or even take a diving lesson to explore the vibrant coral reefs of Port Launay Marine Park.

Don’t worry if you’re inexperienced, a friendly pro instructor will show you the ropes before heading under. Take everything at your own pace.

Stay in a beachfront villa at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, Desroches Island

With a whopping 14km of private golden beaches to play with, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island is a beach baby's dream destination. Beach resorts in Seychelles simply don’t get much better than this.

We recommend staying in a 2,508 ft2 beachfront villa that’s conveniently located just steps from the sands of Sunset Beach. Here you’ll wake up to breath-taking ocean views and have the concierge desk just a phone call away. You can order room service and enjoy breakfast on your outdoor terrace.

For dinner, head to The Lighthouse, the resort’s charming beach grill that serves all sorts of mouth-watering BBQ-style grub. Big meat-eaters will love it here, with a choice of catch-of-the-day seafood and chargrilled chicken to devour. Just make sure you climb the steps up the top of the lighthouse where you’ll have panoramic views of the entire island.

Sip cocktails on the beach at Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare

Another of the best Seychelles five-star hotels is Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare. This is a top choice for travellers looking for that ultimate beach getaway. It caters to both laid-back sun-soakers and active thrill-seekers alike. 

Divers can head to the PADI Dive Centre for a chance to get up close and personal with turtles and even whale sharks. And guests who prefer to sit back and relax in the sun all day can do so in a cabana at the resort’s beachside pool.

However you like to holiday, make sure you book a table at the Windsong Beach Restaurant. Here you can order a drink from its menu of special cocktail creations, with the sand right at your feet below the table.

The Kreole Plantation is a guest favourite, mixing dark rum, sweet melon liqueur, mint syrup, and refreshing ginger beer. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

Head out on a boat excursion at Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas

Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas is undoubtedly one of the best beach resorts in Seychelles. Located on mainland Mahé, this is a top choice for guests wanting to explore outside the resort to see what else Seychelles has to offer.

You can do so by booking a private boat excursion that takes you island-hopping to nearby areas. Whilst on board you’ll sip a glass of bubbly and sit back admiring out-of-this-world views of the surrounding paradise hills and rainforests. 

And when you’re back from sailing the seas, get a table at the Tec-Tec Restaurant. Nestled nicely on the beachfront, here you’ll dine on a unique fusion menu of Asian and Indian-inspired delights. Book a reservation in advance because this is a super popular place to eat that quickly fills up.

Admire ocean views at the LXR Mango House spa

Another of the best beach resorts in Seychelles is LXR Mango House. Here you can stay in a premium beach house with golden sands just mere steps away from your private terrace. 

When you’re up for some fun, head to the shores to take part in a whole bunch of water sports. You can kayak through the lapping waves or grab a snorkel to set your sights on the marine life living among the coastal rocks and reefs. Or if you’re feeling brave, you can hop on a banana boat ride or rent a jet ski. The choice is yours.

However, an absolute must is a little less action-packed – make sure you take a trip to the Mango House spa.

Speak to one of the professional therapists who will tailor a treatment to your needs, whether it’s a massage to work out tight knots or a facial to refresh your sun-kissed skin. Whatever you choose, all will be enjoyed while admiring unbeatable views of the Indian ocean.
