Cross the rustic wood bridge to your great escape at Sainte Anne Resort & Spa, a Beachcomber hotel set on an exclusive private island in the Seychelles. With great vistas of the ocean from the white sand beach, you can choose your accommodation from 87 private villas, 29 of which have private pools as well; surrounding you is one of the largest marine parks in the Indian Ocean. Love nature? Sainte Anne is immersed in it. Enjoy the lush tropical fragrances of bougainvillea, frangipani, and hibiscus, and explore unspoiled natural splendor, while being thoroughly spoiled by a staff that’s top-notch. Take advantage of the sport center, with its organized hikes to the interior of the island under the guidance of experienced staff; you can also bike and jog on scenic paths, play football, tennis, bocce ball, or beach volleyball.
Or, climb aboard a glass-bottom boat at the marine park to see an endless variety of sea life. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a ray or a sea turtle passing by! Want to get up closer? Go out in a kayak or paddle boat, or learn to scuba dive or snorkel with experienced, certified instructors. When you’re hungry, as many as five restaurants, three of them on the beach, serve your every culinary fancy; when it’s time for total relaxation, the Spa by Clarins invites you to indulge in treatments good for both body and soul. And, if you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion in the Seychelles, ask about the wedding and anniversary packages available; memories that last forever can be made in this little slice of paradise.
