Although secluded, this astounding island has plenty to offer, including an abundance of leisure activities and new adventures. Discover our five favourite experiences at this new luxury Seychelles resort:
Reconnect your senses and immerse yourself in the natural flora and fauna at the Circle of Connection Spa. Indulge in a soothing massage to the sound of the Indian Ocean waves or let organic body treatments cleanse your skin, incorporating the island’s pure ingredients into each therapeutic ritual. Focus on health and wellbeing with a yoga retreat — be sure to try Nidra - meaning ‘yogic sleep’ – to enter a deep state of conscious relaxation or improve concentration and lower your blood pressure with mindful meditation.
Barefoot beach life
Feel the powder-soft sand between your toes and watch the turquoise ocean waves roll in as you explore this luxury Seychelles resort’s 14 kilometres of immaculate white-sand beach.
