Hundreds of miles from their nearest neighbours, the Republic of Seychelles comprises 115 islands scattered in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with glorious tropical forests, woodlands and unspoilt beaches. This is an extraordinary archipelago of legendary beauty; a natural paradise of fabulous weather, mercifully free of malarial mosquitoes. The Seychelles are rightly renowned as an outstanding honeymoon destination.
Our top 5 reasons to book a Seychelles Holiday
1. The absolutely top reason to visit Seychelles is to walk the path less trodden. If you’ve ever wondered how Robinson Crusoe felt on his own desert island, this is where you can come close to finding out… But you need to choose your accommodation carefully!
2. A huge range of stylish accommodation across a plethora of gorgeous islands. Truly unique Seychellois French-colonial style is splashed across lavish 5* luxury and barefoot eco-conscious hotels alike. Most accommodation options are located on the main island of Mahé, but there are so many islands to choose from, you can be assured that you’ll find one to suit you perfectly.
Choose carefully though - we believe that the very top-end exclusive islands are worth the money, but that the middle bracket in the Seychelles is expensive for the quality on offer. Show me more >
Seychelles: some background
Falling in the path of a key shipping route for the lucrative spice trade, the Seychelles were colonised relentlessly, from French rule in the early 16th century, through a brief period of self-rule in the 18th century, to British rule in the 19th and 20th centuries, before attaining independence in 1976. Today the Seychelles is an independent republic within the Commonwealth. Show me more >
