An island honeymoon is the choice of millions and it’s not difficult to see why. Pristine, peaceful beaches, warm tropical breezes, and views so blue and bright they’ll positively spoil you are the order of the day in Seychelles. This archipelago is the place to go for private, timeless island luxury, and we’re here to bring you just that for your honeymoon.
Seychelles is the perfect destination for May to September brides – so if you’re envisioning a sunlit, warm summer wedding, this tropical beach hideaway will be just perfect. A warm tropical shower is possible, but they never last long and you’ll be back out in your beach chair before you’ve had a chance to relax inside!
Naturally, Seychelles accommodation is thus some of the most luxurious in the world. Ranging from relaxation resorts and spas to private islands you can reserve for the entirety of your stay, these resorts will ensure you get the maximum amount of pampering, peace and quiet that many couples so crave on their honeymoon after months of ceaseless wedding planning.
For spa luxury, the Banyan Tree Seychelles is our top recommendation. This haven has won a multitude of awards and boasts Seychelles’ first destination spa. The spa integrates seamlessly with the countryside; its sides are open to the air and the pavilion blends right in with the lush vegetation. The villas themselves are designed as a mix of contemporary architecture and Creole design, providing all the luxuries you’ll expect with a sense of timelessness. The secluded Hillside Pool villas are the perfect romantic choice for honeymooners who want nothing more than a luxurious hideaway and a chance to relax with one another. For a real Robinson Crusoe experience, hire the catamaran and travel to the smaller Inner Islands of the Seychelles.
For absolute private island luxury, we’d recommend Fregate Island Private, a tropical island with just sixteen villas but seven untouched beaches and three kilometres of luscious tropical flora and fauna. Each villa is secluded and private, built from native mahogany, and guaranteed to feel just like your home away from home. Freedom is the key at Fregate; for example, you can dine in the historic Plantation House, gourmet Fregate house, in your villa, in the garden, and even on the beach! Your honeymoon is all about what you want, with a huge diversity of activities to enjoy over the course of your lazy days. You even have a private butler on call 24 hours a day over the course of your honeymoon. For those seeking the ultimate in luxury in Seychelles, this is truly the way to go.
Seychelles is served by direct flights from London only by Air Seychelles. If you’re after a bit of variety, we’d highly recommend Emirates Airlines and enjoying a stopover in Dubai on the way there or on the way back. This is the perfect way to break up the long flight and give you a taste of a different culture and city life on your journey.
