Love Comes in Waves at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles
Whether it is a renewal of vows or a honeymoon, there’s no better place to celebrate than at this spellbinding island in the Indian Ocean
Serenaded by the sea on a palm-fringed beach – a tropical getaway has to be the ultimate expression of romance. Perched above a pristine white-sand beach, with stunning ocean vistas wrapped around a lush tropical hillside, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is as dreamy a destination as it gets.
“There’s no need to stand on ceremony here – feel the sand beneath your feet, and dip your toes in the azure waters that lap the shore,” says Renan Astolpho, General Manager. “A couples’ getaway here promises that perfect honeymoon you have scripted.”
In harmony with the natural beauty of this island, couples can exchange vows at ocean’s edge, or high up over the bay amid the lush tropical hillside, in complete privacy or with all the fanfare they desire. “Our expert team is more than happy to improvise and create a specially tailored experience, just the way you imagined,” says Astolpho. “Every detail is precious to us – from menu selection to photography, and flowers, we will make sure that your celebration is truly unforgettable."
Memories That Count
A showpiece of the Four Seasons Indian Ocean collection with year-round warm water and sunny skies, guests can honeymoon on Seychelles at any time of the year. Perched high above the fairytale like Petite Anse Bay, each of the Resort’s villas comes with a private pool and a wrap-around veranda to enjoy the unhindered blue on blue views out to the horizon.
“This is as picturesque a backdrop as you can get,” adds Mary Bowens, Resort Manager. “I would recommend the Serenity Villas for maximum privacy and seclusion during this special getaway.”
With plenty of opportunities for those picture-perfect moments, creating memories is effortless. “We have embroidered a range of activities and experiences that offer honeymooners just those opportunities – to connect with the destination and feel the romance on location,” she adds.
Love is all around from the moment guests check in, with flowers and chocolates to set the mood. The indulgence continues with an In-Villa Bath Ritual, where couples can enjoy a mood-inspiring soak in a sensuous selection of aromatic essential oils, ylang ylang and patchouli, best paired with a complimentary demi-bottle of Champagne, the freshest strawberries and sweeping views of the bay.
Food for Love
Taking the mood further, a Private Beach Dinner for two on the sands of Petite Anse beach presents a romantic evening under the twinkle of stars following a spectacular sunset. “With a menu specially crafted just for you by our chef, drinks of your choice, and even a private butler to service your meal, this is as special as it gets at water’s edge,” shares Simone Cordedda, Director of Food and Beverage.
Love Grows Beautiful Things
There is substance that comes with the style of a Four Seasons vacation, and Louise Sabadel, Marine Biologist, recommends a snorkelling expedition for couples who would like to plant a little memory of their stay and contribute to the marine conservation efforts of the Resort. “Venture into the blue with our Wise Oceans team and plant a heart shaped metal frame supporting rescued coral fragments in our underwater nursery, to support the fragile reef system and serve as your personal contribution to the island, before discovering a colourful display of marine life in the surrounding bay during a guided snorkel,” she suggests.
With its marvellous views over the bay, hilltop Le Syel Spa is the ultimate expression of love and serenity at the Resort. Here, under the consummate care of expert therapists, couples can surrender to the sublime, and experience the potency of tailored spa treatments. “Perhaps none are more blissful than the Starlit Serenity, as the spa’s rooftop serves as the venue for a sensual open-air massage under the stars using shells and a powerful combination of marine minerals and sea kelp,” says Jean Malubdos, Spa Manager. Special in-room couples experiences can also be arranged on request, and every detail can be personalised to suit personal preferences.
Immersive and authentic, the opportunities for romance are limitless here on this unique island resort, and for couples looking to journey beyond and experience the exceptional, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is where two are certain to find it.
