Four Seasons Resort Seychelles

Mahe’s cliffside retreat

Seemingly built into the horseshoe-shaped cliffside encircling Anse La Liberte bay, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is the nature-inspired retreat of your dreams. A hilltop spa, 67 villas stacked just so to allow for ocean views over the treetops, and a sprawling white sand beach set the stage for an unforgettable Seychelles escape.

A quick buggy ride sweeps you up the cliff to your secluded villa, where a private plunge pool and gorgeous soaking tub await. If you can tear yourself away from your accommodations, the swimmable beach with its soft white sands makes for an indulgent way to spend the day. Gratis water sports like kayaking and snorkeling let you explore the crystal-clear bay, while fishing excursions take you further out toward the expansive blue horizon.

Three restaurants and two bars help you unwind, though dining beneath the stars on your villa’s deck proves an enticing end to your Seychelles adventures.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Indian Ocean views are the main draw at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles. To showcase its stellar seaside location, the property adds scenic extras like sunken sea-facing tubs, an open-air hilltop spa and tree house-style villas boasting postcard-worthy ocean vistas.
  • A team of nearly 500 staff offers a warm and genuine experience from the moment you set foot on the property’s white sands until you depart for the airport. Curated excursions and personalized romantic extras (dinner for two on the beach is a popular offering) are just a few of the special touches you can expect at this Seychelles hotel.
  • Occupying the highest point on the property, Le Syel Spa does pampering with sea views and bay breezes. Indulge in a ritual like The Miracle of Coco De Mer, a 150-minute indulgence highlighting the healing properties of coconut.
  • The resort is one of the best spots in the Seychelles for families. In addition to a complimentary Kids For All Seasons club, facilities include a shaded garden area home to a family of giant tortoises, a large children’s pool lined with mini-loungers and a protected beach that’s great for an afternoon of family-friendly fun in the sun.
  • From beach volleyball to seaside golf — ecobioballs let you tee off from the sand without harming the marine environment — the resort offers plenty of ways to stay active during your beach vacation.

Things to Know

  • Due to its steep terrain, the luxury hotel grounds can be difficult to navigate, but an efficient 24/7 buggy service helps you get around without issue.
  • As with all beaches in the Seychelles, the property’s white stretch of sand is open to the public. Loungers are reserved for resort guests, so you’ll have no problem finding a place to perch for the day.
  • Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is just a 35-minute drive from Seychelles International Airport. Simply contact the concierge in advance to arrange private transportation, complete with any stops you’d like to make along the way.

The Rooms

  • All 67 accommodations are standalone villas equipped with scenic sunken tubs and private pools. Secluded and spacious, these retreats beg for romantic getaways.
  • Choose your view: Garden-View Villas are closer to the property’s main pool, the beach and casual Kannel restaurant. Striking Hilltop Ocean-View Villas boast sea-facing infinity pools, spacious decks for lounging and outdoor showers.
  • Sprawling multi-bedroom suites are ideal for families with large pools, spacious decks equipped with loungers and tables for alfresco dining, and a living and dining room for extra elbow room.

The Restaurants

  • Start your day with breakfast overlooking the Indian Ocean at hillside Zez. After sundown, this restaurant transforms into a romantic spot for pan-Asian fare like Singaporean-style king crab in a fiery chili sauce.
  • Enjoy a poolside lunch featuring the day’s catch at Kannel. Pony up to the Petite Anse Fish Counter to see what’s fresh and let the talented culinary staff grill it up to order.
  • More fresh catch can be found at Koi, an intimate Japanese restaurant where tempura, rolls and sushi platters feature bounty from the waters of Petite Anse. Grab a seat at the counter to watch the chefs prepare ultra-fresh sushi and sashimi.
  • When it comes to sundowners, both Kannel Bar and Zez Bar offer scenic spots for a sip. The former provides poolside refreshment and international bites, while the latter features a sake menu and contemporary interiors.
