Seychelles Holidays

Barefoot luxury getaway

Discover a tropical paradise on a Seychelles holiday, shaped by soft sugary sands and turquoise waters. Where intricate coral reefs and colourful shoals of fish reside, a holiday to the Seychelles is bound to captivate. Hosting 115 islands in the Seychelles, each offer an abundance of stunning scenery, beautiful beaches, and rich culture. Relax in the sun or explore the beautiful islands and their vast array of rare and exotic flora and fauna.

From hiking to diving, explore both land and sea, as well as award winning spa treatments and Creole cuisine at exquisite resorts. Ideal for romantic retreats, hideaway honeymoons, and idyllic escapes, the Seychelles is made up of 115 jewel-like islands and we’d recommend hopping between them to experience even more of the archipelago’s beauty. Each island offers a unique experience; from Mahé’s picturesque beaches to Praslin’s rustic village life.

Fly via Europe or the Middle East and split your flight duration time. Spend a couple of nights in the skyline metropolis of Dubai before heading to a tranquil beach in the Seychelles. Whether you’re looking for a romantic retreat, a memory making family hotel, or a fun filled adventure on a private island, the Seychelles awaits.
