Seychelles holidays are all about romance and relaxation surrounded by the scenic splendour of exotic flora and coral sand beaches lapped by aqua blue waters, not to mention the delicious cuisine and boutique accommodation.

Our Seychelles experts have hand selected some of the most luxurious hotels that are perfect for a Seychelles honeymoon, as well as selecting accommodation which offers great facilities for Seychelles family holidays and those that desire an all inclusive Seychelles holiday.
The best way to appreciate a holiday to the Seychelles is to choose a multicentre island-hopping experience, combining two or more islands. Mahé and Praslin are just a 20-minute flight apart and La Digue can be visited as a day tour or an overnight option. The other option is twin your stay with a stop over in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Please see our Seychelles Multicentre holidays for some inspiration.
