Overlooking the picturesque Petite Anse bay on the Seychelles’ southwestern coast, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is the very embodiment of a tropical island hideaway. For travellers who appreciate the privacy of a villa rental but enjoy the five-star service of luxury hotels, the Private Retreats’ rental programme offers the best of both worlds. This collection of exclusive villas are scattered across the granite hillsides in secluded spots, with uninterrupted ocean views, infinity-edge swimming pools and the services of a Residence Host to take care of every need.
This month the spectacular Residence Villa joins the Private Retreats collection; a palatial clifftop villa with seven en-suite bedrooms, 45-metre infinity pool and enormous outdoor terrace overlooking the dramatic coastline of the Indian Ocean below. With room for up to 14 adults, the villa has an open-plan lounge and study, TV room and dining room, plus a covered outdoor dining pavilion for al fresco meals. The Residence Villa is available from September 1 from US $14,758 per night.
