Comprising of over 100 islands, it will come as no surprise that the Seychelles is home to some truly stunning luxury accommodation, offering the perfect beach getaway. We’ve detailed our top 5 favourite places to stay in the Seychelles, to help you decide which remote paradise will be your chosen destination.
This romantic, remote resort is the height of barefoot luxury, perfect for those seeking an unspoiled tropical retreat. The resort is a conservational success, with every villa being built from sustainable materials. Privacy is a key theme at this property, each villa has its own private stretch of beach as well as a private pool. Although North Island excels in private luxury, there’s also an array of excellent activities to enjoy for those looking to be a bit more active such as complementary scuba diving, snorkelling and mountain biking.
The service at North Island is impeccable. Perhaps illustrated best by its unique dining concept, where there is no set menu and guests are invited to express their preferences as soon as they have arrived. All food is sourced locally – from the island itself or fresh from the sea – and fuses local, French and Indian flavours. Wine is brought from extensive cellars, and all is served on Island Piazza with its delightful dining spaces, sala and main bar.
If your idea of a perfect getaway is serene privacy in a tropical setting, look no further than Fregate Island Private. Located just four degrees south of the equator, this tiny island and its seven private beaches are reserved for the use of Fregate guests only so offers true privacy. The island is easily accessible by a 15 minute plane or helicopter ride from Mahé, and at just 3 square kilometres can easily be explored in an island buggy. A guided nature walk will take you through the lush surroundings of Coco de Mer palm trees and giant Banyan Trees, and sightings of the Aldabra giant tortoises are possible. If you want to take your exploration to the ocean, diving lessons are available.
The 16 villas and presidential villa are all beautifully designed and each have their own private garden pool and sheltered gazebo, and you will also have a private butler during your stay. The resort is home to two incredible restaurants, both offering delicious local cuisine.
Surrounded by jaw-dropping white beaches and clear turquoise sea, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles At Desroches Island boasts a divine setting straight out of your Indian Ocean fantasies.

The Bungalows are ideal for a romantic getaway, coming complete with spacious bedrooms with king-sized beds, a private plunge pool, terrace and direct beach access, as well as a large open-plan bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower and large tub. For couples wanting a little more space, the Villas are perfect. Coming with a living room and dining room as well as a private garden, these villas also offer direct beach access. The best option for families are the suites, with one and two bedroom suites, families or couples travelling together can have plenty of space to relax in.
Six Senses Zil Payson is situated on Félicité, a private island characterised by its dramatic white granite boulders and picturesque beaches.
