Four Seasons Resort Desroches Island, one of Seychelles’ tiny outer islands, is a serene retreat focused on relaxation, conservation, and family experiences.

A peaceful island getaway awaits for those traveling to the Four Seasons Resort Desroches Island’s sandy shores. Desroches Island is one of those places that you dream of forever becoming a castaway on. Aldabra giant tortoises stroll past (there are 100 of them on the island) and rays swim along the shore.

Four Seasons Resort Desroches Island is the only property on the island. Just 71 accommodations include bungalows, villas, suites, and residences. Each abode includes private pools, beach access, and lush, private gardens. The style is simple with natural and vintage touches that echo the era of the 19th-century explorers. Shower in the indoor-outdoor bathroom while you admire the Indian Ocean.

Listen to the sounds of the waves only a few steps away from your serene sanctuary. Towering palms gently sway in the soft breeze. Chill out on your furnished terrace. Perfectly-manicured lawns leisurely lead you down to the sea.

Expansive outdoor terraces are ideal for families staying in the suites. Settle into a snooze on the hammock strung between the palms. Toast the sunset with an alfresco dinner. Carefree beach luxury is a way of life here.

Nurture your body with the delectable cuisine inspired by the Mediterranean Riviera in Claudine restaurant. Try fresh seafood at the Lighthouse. Quick snacks are available in the Deli and poolside cocktails, cigars, and shisha in the Bar.

Island life is naturally relaxing, but for an additional de-stressor, the Spa has you covered with organic skincare for facials and massages. Five treatment rooms and a beauty salon keep you feeling good on the inside and outside.

Despite being on a small island, the activities at Four Seasons Resort Desroches Island are endless. Grab a bicycle and meander through lush forests in search of secluded beaches. Meet with the scientists at the Island Conservation Society and see the giant tortoises.

Desroches Island is just the place for guests wanting to detach from the world and experience paradise.
