With 115 islands to choose from, planning your luxury Seychelles holiday can feel like navigating a tropical treasure map, but with Tailored Journeys we can help craft your perfect island adventure.
Island Hopping Adventures
No luxury Seychelles holiday is complete without island hopping. Mahé, the largest island, welcomes you with vibrant Victoria, bustling markets, and heritage sites. La Digue, accessible by bike or oxcart, unveils the iconic Anse Source d'Argent, its granite boulders guarding powdery sands. Praslin, a haven for luxury resorts, entices with the Vallée de Mai nature reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Venture further to Silhouette Island, a secluded Eden dotted with ancient granite peaks, or explore the vibrant marine life surrounding Bird Island. Each island whispers its tale, waiting to be unravelled.
Beyond the Beach: Unveiling Hidden Gems
While Seychelles beaches beckon with their siren song, venture beyond the shore and discover hidden treasures. Hike through lush rainforests on Mahé, spot giant tortoises in Curieuse Nature Reserve, or kayak through mangrove forests on Praslin. Dive into underwater kingdoms teeming with vibrant coral reefs and playful fish. Learn to surf on Petite Anse, windsurf across crystal-clear coves, or embark on a romantic sunset cruise, painting the sky with fiery hues. Every corner of Seychelles holds an adventure waiting to be embraced.
Luxury Awaits: Indulge in Island Opulence
For those seeking a touch of island extravagance, Seychelles unveils a tapestry of luxurious experiences. Private villas nestled amidst tropical gardens offer unparalleled seclusion and personalized service. Gourmet dining under starry skies, private yacht charters exploring hidden coves, and rejuvenating spa treatments in beachfront settings – every whim finds its fulfilment. Immerse yourself in bespoke experiences tailored to your dreams, letting paradise pamper you in style.
Sustainable Seychelles: Travel with a Conscience
Seychelles' beauty is fragile, and responsible tourism is key. Support local businesses, choose eco-friendly accommodation, and minimize your environmental footprint. Choose guided hikes with responsible tour operators, respect marine life while snorkelling and diving, and avoid single-use plastics. Your conscious choices ensure these island jewels shine bright for generations to come.
Best Time to Visit The Seychelles
Seychelles basks in a year-round tropical embrace, but the different seasons offer distinct experiences. From December to April, the sun reigns supreme, perfect for beach bums and watersports enthusiasts. May to September presents cooler temperatures and calmer seas, ideal for divers and nature lovers. October and November usher in the shoulder season, offering bargains and a quieter charm. So, pick your perfect paradise depending on your sun-kissed desires.

OUR SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SEYCHELLES:
The 3rd largest of the Seychelles inner islands and north-west of Mahé, Silhouette has no roads or cars making it a perfect paradise escape. This island, carved from granite, has the most secluded beaches in the world and only one resort, the five-star Hiton Seychelles Labriz, overlooking the palm-fringed Anse le Passe.
Anse Source d'Argent
An awe-inspiring beach with world famous sunsets. It is one of the most Instagram-friendly beaches in the world with stunning views and dazzling white sands. It was also the backdrop for the movie Castaway starring Tom Hanks (and Wilson!)
Located on the northeastern cost of Mahé, Victoria is the smallest capital city in the world! With a vibrant food market, french colonial buidlings, art galleries and a Botanic Gardens it is well worth a visit to get a flavour of local Seychellois life.
This small island is right next to Praslin, and is a popular destination for day-trips with nature trails, mangrove forests and a colony of 250 free-roaming giant tortoises. It was once a leper colony (but thankfully no longer!) and you can visit the ruins of the houses and a restored colonial villa called Doctor's House.
