Guest Testimonial

Such satisfaction is to a great extent down to the time you (Charlotte Wells) and your colleagues took in recommending this resort... It goes without saying that we shall definitely be in touch again and hope very much to make a return visit to the Four Seasons in the Maldives...

Best time to travel

March - November


The islands of the Seychelles enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate, generally governed by two opposing trade winds. The south-easterly trades blow from May to September bringing drier and windier conditions ideal for sailing. From October to March the gentler north-west trades provide calmer seas but a higher chance of refreshing showers. Scuba divers will find April, May, October and November have the warmest seas and visibility is often 30 metres plus
