It’s no surprise that Seychelles is a hotspot for A-listers. With its stunning collection of private island resorts, it is one of the most desirable holiday destinations in the world - and the place to go when you’re after that exclusive VIP treatment.

You don’t have to look very far to spot celebrities in Seychelles either. So many household names and power couples have been spotted waltzing along the white sands or sipping champagne at a beachfront bar, from the likes of Posh & Becks to British royalty, Prince William & Kate Middleton - the list goes on.

But don’t worry, it’s not just big-name stars or royalty welcomed in Seychelles. There are plenty of luxury Seychelles holidays for you to experience too, so get browsing through this list to find the resort that stands out to you most.

You never know, you might be staying next door to a superstar... 

North Island, Seychelles

Previously spotted A-list residents: Prince William and Kate Middleton, Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston

When you’re famous in Seychelles, it’s privacy you mainly search for – and that’s exactly what you get at North Island, Seychelles.

With just a single 10-villa resort on the entire island, this is a discreet hideaway you can use to escape from the rest of the world.

Soak up the peace and quiet lounging on your sea-facing sundeck and take a dip in your pool knowing absolutely no one is watching. You’ve never experienced tranquility quite like this.

When (or should we say, if) you do fancy venturing around the resort, hop on your personal electric buggy and head to one of the many beaches for a private day excursion built around exactly what you want to do, from hiring a boat around the island or wreck-diving down to the coral reefs.

Your entire experience here is personalised to your dream holiday.

Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa

Previously spotted A-list residents: Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild

As one of the oldest resorts in Seychelles, you can pretty much guarantee an endless number of famous faces have stayed at Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa. Celebrities in Seychelles tend to choose the grandest, most luxurious resorts  – and this is certainly one of them.

You’ll lodge in a stunning beachfront villa with direct access to a golden sandy beach, meaning you’ll never have to leave if you so wish.

You’ve got everything you need inside your four walls, especially if it's privacy you’re after. Just call the concierge desk when you fancy room service and they’ll deliver a gourmet breakfast, lunch, or dinner straight to your door.

For any special occasions, we recommend heading to Mahe: the resort’s signature fine-dining restaurant with a Creole-influenced menu to die for. Your food is whipped up on a live cooking station as you sit back and gaze at the stunning panoramic ocean views.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa

Previously spotted A-list residents: Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault

Next on the list is another Hilton brand hotel where celebrities in Seychelles often stay. At Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to lap up the luxury and explore the resort’s spectacular natural beauty, like on a hike through the rainforest or a dive experience at the Eco centre.

Another big draw here is the exceptional dining options. There’s something to feed every mood, whether you fancy a big heart-warming bowl of pasta or something lighter at lunch to tide you over.

Just make sure you visit Teppanyaki for a lakeside cooking theatre show serving up delights like freshly caught Omani lobster cooked in garlic-soy butter.

After dinner, head to Lo Brizan Bar where you’ll sip on a piña colada whilst soaking up the buzzing atmosphere and live entertainment. It’s the perfect place for a date night or celebratory drinks for a special occasion.

Six Senses Zil Pasyon

Previously spotted A-list residents: Elizabeth and Damian Hurley 

Celebrities in Seychelles often visit to destress and unwind from the taxing life of being followed by paparazzi. So if it's wellness-focused solitude you’re after, look no further than Sixth Senses Zil Pasyon. You certainly won’t find any lurking paparazzi hiding in bushes.

As the only resort on the entire island, a stay here is your chance to enjoy the serenity and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul.

There’s no better place to do this than the Six Senses Spa specialising in a variety of therapeutic treatments, all of which are enjoyed whilst overlooking spectacular ocean views.

And when it’s time for some action, a friendly team member at the on-site Experience Centre will plan your day around something fun and thrilling like a snorkelling trip exploring the wonders of the shore reefs.

If you have one, make sure you take along an underwater GoPro, because this is something you’ll want to remember forever.

Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island

Previously spotted A-list resident: Tony Blair

When you’re famous in Seychelles with money to splash out with, chances are you’re going to stay at top-end resorts like Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island.

In addition to its gorgeous paradise isle setting, it’s the ultra-stylish villas here that are the real standout. The interior design combines chic modern finishings with lots of dark woods and homely natural textures. Outside you’ll also have a private sea-facing terrace and a plunge pool to cool you off when the sun is at its hottest.

Here you’ll have a personal villa host caring for you throughout your stay and plenty of other additional benefits to make you feel like VIPs, like kayaks for you to use when you feel like exploring the ocean waters.
