About the location
The central island of Mahé is the cultural core of the Seychelles, bundling most of the country’s population between its shores.

This is where you’ll find the capital, Victoria – a north-easterly city that clings to a harbour busy with a mix of seafaring locals and island-hopping holidaymakers. A whistle-stop tour here should include the Seychelles National Botanical Garden, which lays out five acres of tropical gardens – ancient Aldabra giant tortoises and fruit bats included.

Out of the city, wildly beautiful beaches are the theme. Anse Intendance Beach rolls out gleaming white sands between the turquoise ocean and green jungle, while peach and lemon villas squeeze between the coconut palms of Beau Vallon Beach.

The scenery takes a turn for spectacular as you head inland. Morne Seychellois National Park is the mountainous interior of Mahé. Hiking trails trickle through the thick jungle, roving between secluded sandy bays, Morne Seychellois peak, rocky granite lookouts and watery mangrove forests.
Transfer time
The hotel is a 40 minute transfer from Seychelles International airport
