A stunning archipelago of 115 islands floating in the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles offers glorious beaches, exciting marine life, and unique nature parks. A true luxury destination, spa hotels in the Seychelles are designed to suit their surroundings, and make ideal accommodations in this idyllic setting. Beyond the wellness treatments and pampering, guests at any Seychelles spa hotel will also have ample choice for cultural outings, nature excursions, and time spent at secluded beaches.
Where to stay in a Spa Hotel in the Seychelles?
What to See in the Seychelles’ Capital, Victoria
Visitors to the Seychelles land at the only international airport in the archipelago, on Mahe Island near the capital, Victoria. Before travelling onward to the outer islands, there are several attractions in Victoria that shouldn’t be missed. The Botanical Garden is well-manicured and home to myriad native Seychelles flora and fauna, including giant tortoises. Stop by Sunstroke Studio to check out art by the Seychellois artist George Camille, and for a spot of retail therapy, try the bustling Victoria Market. There are also plenty of beaches that are accessible from Victoria, including Beau Vallon and North East Point. An excellent spa hotel choice near Victoria, the Station Retreat Hotel offers homeopathic treatments and yoga. Farther south, Mahe Island’s outpost of the Four Seasons is known for its classic spa pleasures, and some guests might not want to continue onward, at all.
Heading Out to the Amazing Outer Islands
With so many beaches to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down which outer Seychelles islands to visit. Two not to skip, however, are La Digue and Praslin. On Praslin, there are several Seychelles spa hotels not far from lovely beaches like Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette, ideal for powdery sand and unbelievable sunsets. For visitors interested in combining active travel with spa downtime, there’s also the untouched Praslin National Park, a nature reserve great for hiking and wildlife watching. La Digue, meanwhile, is home to Le Domaine de l’Orangeraie, a splendid, archetypal Seychelles spa resort. The island’s best-known beaches are Anse Source d’Argent and the secluded Anse Bonnet Carre Beach. Here, too, a wonderful nature park, Veuve Nature Reserve, showcases the island’s diverse wildlife and provides an interesting counterpoint to days of massages, hammams, and poolside lounging.
Atolls and Enchanting, Undeveloped Islands
Praslin Island’s spa hotels are an excellent base from which to explore nearby uninhabited islands. Day trips to Curieuse, St. Pierre, and Cousin Island, near Praslin, make for fascinating natural excursions. Tour Cousin Island with a certified guide, or plan joint snorkelling tours of Curieuse and St. Pierre. For adventurers, an organised visit to the Aldabra Atoll is unforgettable; permission is needed from the Seychelles Islands Foundation to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The four islands comprising the raised coral atoll are not easy to reach but this inaccessibility protects the area, which has the largest population of giant tortoises in the world and is home to the coconut crab, hammerhead sharks, crocodiles, and barracudas as well as hundreds of endemic and non-endemic vegetation species.
