With one of the finest views in all of Mahe, the location of the FOUR SEASONS RESORT is unmatched in the SeychBlogs. Cocooned by lush greenery, and with views out over the pristine waters of Petite Anse, the resort offers an island retreat like no other. The hilltop spa is exquisite and you will literally feel your stress and fatigue slowly drift away as you step inside. With a wide range of beauty and wellness offerings – from myriad facial and body treatments, to signature bath rituals, and a night spa menu – there is an indulgent menu to fix (almost) any ailment. And there’s even a treatment menu for the little ones for the Kids’ Spa. Private yoga sessions can be arranged and personalised to suit all levels, from introductory exploration to advanced practice, starting with a brisk walk and including Hatha postures on a stand up paddleboard (SUP). The Vaishaly Experience, exclusive to the resort, is a unique treatment that incorporates massage and healing craniosacral therapy techniques, focusing on the neck, shoulders, scalp, and face to gently release tension, banish stress and restore balance and is a must-try experience. INSIDE INFO: Every villa has its own private rim-flow pool, and if you’re travelling with children, a removable wooden fence is put up so that the kids do not have direct access. The sunken baths are big enough for two, with incredibl views. The swing on the beach is the best seat in the house, and if you like live music, book over a weekend to enjoy local tunes with your dinner.

IN THE AREA: The resort is located close to many local restaurants and art galleries, as well as beautiful Baie Lazare beach, where you can book a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) or surf lesson with iSurf SeychBlogs.
