Four Seasons to open second resort in the Seychelles on the Desroches Island
Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and Desroches Island Developments Limited announced today that Four Seasons will manage the only resort offering on the remote tropical island of Desroches in the Seychelles. After undergoing extensive renovations, the existing property will re-open in 2017 as Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island.
On the outer edge of the Indian Ocean’s archipelago, Desroches Island is located among the Amirantes Islands, a 35 minute flight (240 km) southwest of Mahé, the capital and largest island in the Seychelles. Boasting 14 kilometres of pristine white-sand beaches, lush coconut groves, crystal clear waters and vibrant coral reefs, the island is a remote and tranquil oasis just five degrees south of the equator.
Featuring 40 exclusive beach suites and 11 private residence villas, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island will be one of the company’s most intimate properties. With direct access to unspoiled beaches and the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, the Resort’s suites will also feature private plunge pools, tropical gardens, and luxurious outdoor living spaces.
The Resort will feature two restaurants and a lounge bar, providing an array of exciting food and beverage offerings in a casual, beach-front setting. For guests looking to relax and rejuvenate in the island’s untouched tranquillity, the Resort will also feature an expanded six-suite Spa offering locally-inspired treatments and wellness classes. The glass-like waters of the Indian Ocean and surrounding reefs also make for world-class diving, fishing, snorkelling and water sports, while the inland forests and coconut trees provide picturesque paths for cycling and hiking. For guests looking to explore the many natural wonders of the Indian Ocean, the island will also include a Marine Conservation Discovery Centre and Giant Tortoise Sanctuary.
The second Four Seasons property to open in the Seychelles, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island will join the company’s exclusive collection of island resorts in destinations including: the Maldives, Mauritius, Koh Samui, Hawaii, Bali, and Bora Bora.
