Discover paradise in the Indian Ocean with an ultra-luxury holiday to the Seychelles from award-winning Lightfoot Travel.
The Seychelles islands are the quintessential tropical paradise we all desire after a long day at work
Consisting of 115 islands dotted about in the India Ocean (16 inhabited), they boast white sand beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, softly swaying palms and some of the finest luxury resorts on the planet.
It’s of little wonder why the Seychelles remain on the top of everyone’s list for honeymoons and romantic getaways – including Prince William and Kate, who chose to come here for their royal honeymoon!
The most famous of the islands are Mahe, Praslin and La Digue, all of which are considered the ‘inner islands’ and are generally easily accessible, the odd private seaplane aside. All offer dreamlike tropical beauty at a slow-pace tempo with fine powdery beaches, verdant mountains interiors and champagne sunsets.
Beyond the glitz and glamour of the resort, the Seychelles is an eco-tourism paradise with lush jungle trails and world-class diving among rainbow-coloured reefs and giant turtles. We can arrange yachting trips or island hopping among the uninhabited and pristine atolls.
The Seychelles has a reputation for exceptional fine dining and you won’t be short of Michelin-starred options, although we like the local Creole-style food just as much – and of course all the fresh seafood! There’s also a fashionable nightlife scene on the large islands.
Unsurprisingly, the Lightfoot Travel team rather enjoys visiting the Seychelles. Our experienced consultants will help design your perfect ultra-luxurious holiday here – be it honeymoon or relaxing family escape. We offer impartial advice on the best luxury resorts to suit your needs.
