“Best hotel stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

We have travelled a fair bit of the globe, but without doubt the Four Seasons Seychelles has to be the best experience. From the welcome to the final goodbye the service was first class. The wining and dining experience was as good if not better than the top restaurants in London. We booked the holiday through Seyexclusive Ltd, and found them to be very knowledgeable and experienced on the Seychelles. Can't wait for our return in September 2012.

Room Tip: All the villas are excellent - but if you can have an ocean view.

My entire experience was perfect. From the villa and private pool to the beach and spa's.
Food was out of this world and the service could not have been better.
Would not think twice about visiting again!!

I was in this resort in december and it was just fantastic! The check in was efficient and we were in our villa in no time! The villa is just magnificent and an experience by itself! The bathtub is huge and the private pool is just awesome! The spa is another amazing feature! Lovely views of the sunset and the beach just take your breath away! The breakfast spread is elaborate and delicious!! Overall a really impressive experience. Was with my wife and the staff took every effort to make it special for us! A trip etched with beautiful memories! Thank you four seasons!

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful nights at the Four Seasons in Seychelles. The property is truly stunning. The beach on the property was just so beautiful; the villas are perfectly placed from one another so you get the private/secluded feel. The service all week from each of the staff was impeccable; so attentive, friendly and helpful!! The restaurants at the hotel served excellent food from breakfast, to the creole fish curry at lunch, and the buffet dinners (Arabic, Japanese, etc.).

This is a very well run property. One of the finest we have ever experienced. Just the attention to detail each day made our stay that much more enjoyable. Each day there was a new treat in our room: lemon tarts, mango macaroons, lemongrass tea, and cookies!! Wonderful place and will recommend to all our family and friends. We will definitely come back after our baby is born!!

We have just returned from our honeymoon and it was a great experience. The hotel was amazing. Views to die for.
The staff are amazing and really make your stay worthwhile. Everyone seems to know who you are and which villa you are staying at. They make sure if you are not in your villa they know where you are so if anyone needs you for any reason they can get hold of you.
The beach is private and the best on the Mahe island. White sand and blue sea, what more could you ask for. The beach never seemed busy and you get complimentary massages, drinks, cold towels, sunglasses cleaned.
We stayed in a Garden view room to begin with for the first 4 days which was amazing but no view really. The last 2 nights we moved to an ocean view room which had a much better view and more privacy. I would recommend this to anyone staying here.
The beach dinner is really worth doing, they make it so nice and romantic for you, it was unfortunate the night we went it was very windy and rained.
We went out of the resort 2 nights for dinner to Kaz Creole which does great food and would recommend, the restaraunt is on the beach so wear appropriate footwear and also to Marias Rock Cafe where you cook your own food on a hot plate. Was a bit strange at first but once you get settled etc it was fine and fun!
The massages are quite pricey as like everything is to be honest but you have to expect this due to where you are staying. It's very expensive to eat, drink, etc but you do pay for the best.
Overall i think this is a once in a lifetime place to stay, if i had the money i would defo go again.
Oh and the main currency to use here is Euros. We took US$, big mistake, they do accept it but we had to wait ages for our change everytime we ordered something.
The buggy service they have there is brilliant too. When you are ready they pick you up and drop you where you need to go. You don't need to tip them everytime unless someone goes above and beyond.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms have a better view and more privacy

Dear Manveer P,

Thank you so much for posting your review on TripAdvisor. I love to see these great comments and pass the great feedback to the team. Our Garden View rooms are great for those who want to be close to the resort centre, and get to the beach or the restaurants on foot, but for the best views, we would always recommend a Hilltop Ocean View villa. We're glad you were able to move for the last two days of your stay and experience the stunning views.

We hope you are able to come back to the Resort in the future to enjoy those views and our wonderful beach again.

My wife and I spent the final 6 days of our 2 week honeymoon at the Four Seasons Seychelles. We wished we had come earlier!!! The service was simply amazing. To compare, we spent 2 nights at the Burj al Arab in Dubai prior to arrival at the FS ( also a once in a lifetime experience) and the service at the FS was on par with the Burj, which is truely a 7* star hotel. Every staff member at FS had a can do, get it done attitude. Very professional, always accomidating, and respectful. Now, this love doesn't come cheap, but like most things in life, its worth it. The beach experience was the best. No need to reserve a chair with towels. They also make visits to you frequently for complimentary services such as cold towels, cleaning your sun glasses ( that was a first), frozen fruit and drinks, 5 minute massages, etc. One time when the staff was busy, I went to the bar to get a drink. The beach manager stopped by to apologize for me getting off my butt to schlep my own drink and gave me a freebie! WTF!! At Sez, they opened an expensive bottle of wine for me that wasn't on the menu because I wanted a particular type that they didn't have by the glass. The list goes on and on. The food was very good and our villa was amazing. The arrival honeymoon welcome cake and sparkling wine was a nice touch!
I would agree with others about the privacy issue in that the vegetation only hides your villa so much. Hope we didn't offend anybody ;)

We loved this place and will return often ( even though its a 24 hour flight from the states). Great job Four Seasons Resort Seychelles!! BRAVO!!!

Dear jinferno,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. We're so pleased to have been able to enhance your honeymoon with our service. Our beach is such a gem, that it only seems right that our beach service should match it in quality, so thank you for your lovely comments about the service and amenities from the team there.

We look forward very much to welcoming you back to the Resort. I'm glad we proved to be well worth the trip from the States!

The Four Seasons on Mahe Island exceeded all our expectations. The location is stunning, the views absolutely amazing, the accommodations couldn't have been more lovely. We were so impressed with the service and general experience at the resort. I have to admit I was a bit stressed out after planning a wedding for nearly a year and so when we arrived to our villa and saw that it was a little too close to our neighbors for comfort I called the front desk and they kindly responded to my request to move to a more private villa the next morning. When we arrived at that 2nd villa and were relaxing by the pool I panicked when I heard some rather loud construction noises coming from a villa below us. Not wanting to make another complaint but desperately needing complete silence and relaxation I called a 2nd time to the front desk to ask about the noise and they responded by stopping the construction all together for the remaining 4 days we were there! Pretty amazing. All the staff in general were wonderful, we had a private dinner one night on the beach and we got to talking to our server about local cuisine and having grown up there had a lot to share. The next day he delivered several hand-written recipes for local Seychellois cuisine for us to take home! Just an example of how everyone at the resort really goes out of their way to make for a wonderful experience. We had debated about staying here or the Banyan Tree and after a boat trip around the island we were 100% sure we’d made the right choice as the beach is truly the most beautiful. Can’t recommend it highly enough!

Room Tip: The hilltop villas are a bit further from the beach/restaurant but a lot more private. The views are...

Dear Natalie M,

Thank you so much for leaving your feedback on TripAdvisor. I'm sorry to see that you weren't quite happy with the location of the villa to begin with, but I'm glad to see that the Front Office team did such a great job in finding a great solution.

I hope you have been trying lots of the Creole recipes at home after receiving your recipe cards!

Thank you for the lovely recommendation. We'd love to welcome you back to the Resort in the future so you can enjoy the beach again. Perhaps for a second honeymoon! I'm so pleased that we were able to create some lovely memories for you on your most treasured vacation.
