Seychelles and luxury come hand in hand. As an archipelago of paradise islands, premium experiences in Seychelles are all about escaping the mundane reality of home and living your best life on far-away sandy beaches and five-star resorts.

Seychelles is an eclectic holiday destination too. Depending on what you like doing most, there’s always something to keep you relaxed or entertained – whether that be lounging on a poolside sunbed or adventuring around local mountains admiring the unbeatable ocean views. It’s down to you how you spend your days.

So, what are the best luxury experiences in Seychelles? We've rounded them up...

Live your best foodie life at Constance Ephelia Resort

First on our list of Seychelles’ luxury experiences is the wonderful dining options at Constance Ephelia Resort. With an eclectic selection of beachfront bars and chic restaurants, there’s no doubt foodies will be in their absolute element here.

There’s Corrosol, the main buffet restaurant where you’ll have a daily selection of quick grab-and-go breakfasts and hearty lunches. And for dinner, you can head to Helios, a gourmet Mediterranean buffet serving things like tapas, antipasti, or delicious thin-style Italian pizzas. Or if it’s a formal à la carte you’re after, book a table at the resort’s signature restaurant, Cyann. Here you’ll dine on a fusion menu that combines the art of French cuisine with traditional Creole and Asian flavours. We bet you’ve never tried food like this before.

Perhaps most special though is Adam & Eve. Here you’ll be seated under an open-air canopy surrounded by lush vegetation - relish in the laid-back atmosphere of its gourmet street-food vibes.

Enjoy the stripped-back barefoot luxury of Denis Private Island

The Seychelles luxury experiences you get at Denis Private Island aren’t exactly the obvious type of luxury. Here you’re encouraged to actively switch off from life back home and disconnect your phone. In fact, the beachfront cottages you’ll be staying in don’t even have Wi-Fi, nor do they get any phone reception. Are these blissful no-tech-no-stress vibes your type of holiday?

Trust us, you won’t want your phone lighting up with distracting notifications anyway. Instead, you’ll wake up every day to the serenity of beach life and walk just metres down a private path to the sands. Start the day by ordering breakfast to the room and fuel your body with goodness at the dining table on your sea-facing veranda.

Everything here is all about going back to basics and embracing the peacefulness of castaway island life. Even the food you eat is sourced from the resort’s own organic farm.

Hide away from the rest of the world at North Island, Seychelles

The North Island, Seychelles is like no other resort in the world. Situated on its own tropical island, here you’ll stay in one of just 10 villas and have your own secluded part of paradise to play with. It’s the ultimate five-star hideaway when you want to escape for a while. 

In fact, this resort is beyond the typical five-star luxury you expect. Everyone arrives by helicopter and you’ll be checked into a beachfront villa boasting stunning ocean views, charming wood-crafted furniture, and a king-size bed made with the softest sheets imaginable. A bunch of modern amenities are thrown in for your convenience too, like your very own electric buggy you can use to get from A to B in and around the resort. 

Just make sure you also venture on foot around the island’s rainforest trails and sandy shorelines – you need to make the most of the island’s picture-perfect views wherever you look. The best part? There’s no one else around, you’ve basically got the whole island to yourself. It doesn't get more ultra-luxury than that.

Stay in a deluxe villa at Six Senses Zil Pasyon

We believe your villa is what makes Seychelles luxury experiences truly superior. And although there are countless deluxe villas we could award the top spot to, it’s Ocean Sounds at Six Senses Zil Pasyon that stands out as one of our favourites. It’s as bougie as they come. 

Ocean Sounds is a futuristic four-bedroom villa boasting panoramic views of the glistening Indian Ocean and the surrounding island hillsides. You can spend your days soaking up the sun out on the terrace and then cook a storm in your ultra-modern kitchen at night – or a private chef can come to cook you a three-course meal, instead. Meanwhile, you can head down to the wine cellar and pick out a nice bottle of vino to enjoy whilst watching the sunset.

Did we mention the master bedroom even has its own swimming pool complete with a Plexiglass floor? We told you it’s bougie!

Try out thrilling water sports at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, Desroches Island

Four Seasons hotels are best known for their swanky vibes and grand suites, but we think it's the exciting range of water sports that provide the best Seychelles luxury experiences at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, Desroches Island. Down on the beach is where you’ll have the best time.

You can start with something gentle like paddle boarding, and then really up the ante with a surfing lesson from a TropicSurf instructor or go deep sea diving exploring deep caves, tunnels, and passages with an experienced expert. Don’t worry, you’re always in safe hands if you’re brave enough to take the plunge. And once you’ve faced your fears, sip on a well-deserved cocktail at the Castaway Bar. Just ask the bartenders to make it a triple to calm your nerves.

If you’re not a thrill-seeker and fancy something educational instead, check out the island’s dedicated Tortoise Sanctuary. Here you can learn all about the resort’s tortoise conversation efforts and even get up close and personal with a new shelled friend yourself.
