Endless possibilities for adventure and rejuvenation await at Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island. Just a 35-minute flight southwest of Mahé – the main island of Seychelles – Four Seasons is the only resort on this remarkably spacious island, encompassing 402 hectares (933 acres) and edged by 14 kilometres (nine miles) of white-sand beaches. Guests will feel as though they have stepped back in time to a world of untouched nature, where Aldabra giant tortoises might stroll past and rays swim along the shore. They can discover the feeling of becoming a true castaway whilst exploring Desroches Island, with a team of Four Seasons experts on hand to assist with every adventure.
Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island comprises 71 luxury accommodations, nestled among the south-westerly coastlines and each with their own pool and ocean view. Guests can relax in expansive indoor and outdoor spaces or cool off in their free-standing plunge pool whilst listening to the sound of the waves that lap the shore only footsteps away. In total there are 48 villas and bungalows comprising 21 Ocean View Pool Villas, 9 Sunset Beach Villas and 18 Beach Bungalows. Each has their own unique position on the island and offers a sanctuary for couples or small families travelling to Seychelles.
Under the guidance of Head Chef, Olivier Barré, the resort’s team of talented chefs serve up delicious variety of indulgent delights. Guests can sample four distinct culinary options, all open-air and beachfront, with relaxed all-day menus served at The Bar or Claudine and a contemporary fusion menu at The Lighthouse signature restaurant.
Guests can fill every Desroches day with new experiences – whether kayaking along the shore, cycling on forest trails, scuba diving at 15 classified dive sites, or fishing for marlin and dorado. The Tortoise Sanctuary welcomes visitors to meet Aldabra giant tortoises and learn from the scientists of the Island Conservation Society, cycling past the island’s Creole Village on the way, to see how local craftspeople operate a furniture workshop and cultivate the land. At the same time, children can have fun in the Kids For All Seasons program, playing games and learning to identify island birds.

A private plunge pool sits effortlessly at the side or back of the bungalow, surrounded by perfectly manicured lawns that lead directly to the beach.
