Four Seasons Review

The 67 villas at this resort, which opened in 2009, dot the forested hillsides of a natural amphitheater overlooking the perfect bay of Petite Anse. The vegetation and trees were all left in place or replanted so that this gorgeous and very upmarket resort feels like it's been here for years, blending in remarkably well with its surrounds. The villas themselves are breathtaking: spacious, modern, and yet imbued with Creole style and original artworks by Seychellois artists. The water in Petite Anse's protected bay is clear year-round, and offers some of the best snorkeling in the area. An incredibly well-stocked activity center (good-quality kayaks, snorkeling gear, etc.) and kids' programs, along with cooking classes (highly recommended if you're fond of Creole cuisine) and a library, mean you'll never want for things to do. The stunning spa at the top of the hill is probably one of the best places on Mahé for sundowners, not to mention to enjoy fabulous treatments and complimentary yoga classes with a view. Both restaurants are excellent, and the hotel's breakfast buffet is unusually tasty (and offers a truly global selection of breakfast options).
