Seychelles – Desroches Island Resort

The Seychelles is a wonderful destination with many fantastic properties. It is home to some of the most exclusive and some of the most expensive resorts in the world. While we love these properties there are some hidden gems in the Seychelles. Not the least of these is Desroches Island Resort which is the topic of my blog this month.

Most of the islands in the Seychelles are made of granite but Desroches is different. It is a coral island located in the Amirante Archipelago. This is considered to be of the most pristine and untouched islands in the world today.

Desroches is 142 miles south-west of Mahé. Daily return flights from Mahé service the resort so access is very simple via the islands private paved runway.

With 9 miles of white, soft, sandy beaches and blue waters, the island is beautiful. As the only resort occupying a green, coral island in the southern part of the Seychelles, Desroches Island Resort offers visitors exceptional privacy and a tranquil environment.

Desroches Island features some of the very best snorkelling, scuba diving, and fishing in the Seychelles.  As such, a stay at Desroches Island is a must for those seeking a bit of water sports related activities!

Whilst many resorts claim to be both “good for couples and families” it is fair to say that Desroches actually is. The separation between the villas means that the privacy is excellent. Also, the size of the island and the limited number of guests means that you seldom see too many other people giving the impression that you are enjoying your own private island.

We recommend the Beach Suite and the Beach Retreat for those clients traveling by themselves or as a couple. For families the Beach Villa or Residences are all multi bedroom meaning it is the ultimate ‘home away from home’.

Linara Travel has negotiated special rates and many discount specials including complimentary night offers, early bird booking discounts and special family packages for the rest of 2012 and right through 2013. Please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to prepare some information for you.  Desroches Island Resort is a place on the planet that is very remote and with that it makes it one of the ultimate island escapes. That’s what’s cool about it.

Until next time, safe travels
