Four Seasons just signed the papers for an exclusive resort on the remote tropical Desroches Island, which is part of the Seychelles islands. It’s an already existing resort that will be renovated by Four Seasons and re-open next year.
Desroches Island is located on the outer edge of the Indian Ocean’s archipelago, just a 35-minute flight from the capital and largest island of the Seychelles, Mahé. The picturesque hideaway boasts 14 kilometers of white sand beaches, coconut groves, vibrant coral reefs and is positioned just five degrees south of the equator.
Development plans show the renovations of 40 exclusive beach suites and 11 private residence villas. Four Seasons has guests covered that prefer regular pools over salt water with the construction of private plunge pools that fit in with the luxurious outdoor living spaces that are planned.
J. Allen Smith, President and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts commented: “Four Seasons Resort Seychelles in Mahé is one of the most desirable resorts in our global portfolio, and we look forward to deepening our commitment to this important destination with the addition of a second property,” continues Smith. “Together with Desroches Island Developments Limited we are creating something unique and special on Desroches Island, a true island hideaway that delivers the highest standards of quality and the most genuine and personal service – the markers of a Four Seasons stay the world over.”
In addition to the renovated properties and the addition of plunge pools and private lounge areas there will be two restaurants and a lounge bar in beachfront setting. For further relaxation a six-suite spa offers locally-inspired treatments and wellness classes.
This is the second Four Seasons property to open in the Seychelles, it will join the already present Four Seasons resort on the main island Mahé.
