As well as being our most opulent Seychelles offering, this itinerary also affords access to some of the best wildlife and scenery to be found on the islands. Baie Lazare is arguably the most beautiful beach on the main island of Mahe, and provides the site for your first stop, one of the well regarded Four Seasons group of hotels. Mahe is a great birding location and we can organise a privately guided birdwatching tour of the island should you wish it: otherwise, just relax and soak up the ambience of this excellent resort.

A short plane hop takes you to the second largest island, Praslin, for the Lemuria resort which occupies an enviable position spanning two perfect beaches separated by a small rocky headland. Golf and various watersports are all possible, and we include a privately guided tour of the unique Vallee de Mai forest, home to the world’s largest and most curiously shaped nut, the coco-de-mer. You could even opt for a visit to La Digue, a gem of an island close by.

Finally comes the highlight of the holiday: beautiful Cousine Island, rat-free and thus a sanctuary for ground-nesting birds such as the wedge-tailed and Audubon shearwaters, as well as many more native species. On this private island – accessed by private helicopter charter – you will find only four spacious beachfront luxury villas and one family villa, plus a small main building housing the excellent restaurant and polished granite pool. Turtles come to nest in season, and the sun going down on the horizon on your last day will mark the end of a luxurious, relaxing and stimulating Seychelles journey.

If you have the time and inclination, add a night to the three resorts, as each is very special and a day longer will be very welcome.
