Beachcomber Seychelles Sainte Anne

This is a five star resort and the only development on the island of St. Anne’s. It is well sculpted, well maintained and feels well integrated with the island. Our villa was almost perfect and felt secluded despite being in a row of similar villas. The outdoor shower and our covered seating area were both lovely. The bikes provided (with every villa) while slightly aging, proved very useful, and the resort is flat, apart from one small steep hill. The beaches are more than adequate for the size of the resort - although they are arguably not as spectacular as can be found elsewhere in the Seychelles. (One in particular had quite a lot of sea weed on it during our stay – but it added to the natural feel of the place for me).

The staff were all very friendly and efficient and they complemented the laid back atmosphere (it’s not the type of place where you will be regularly asked if you want drinks). Food in the main restaurant was delicious and fresh, making the most of the local cuisine. Some may find the variety limited given the local focus but personally I liked the fact they didn’t ship in excessively from far afield.

The free snorkelling trips offered were the absolute highlight for me – in the marine reserve just off the shore. There was an abundance of coral and fish and I saw huge ray fish and people we were with saw turtles. Although the resort is quite expensive, the fact they provide trips like this and free island transfers etc. makes it a lot more economical that it might at first seem. I would love to come back to Sainte Anne's one day....

We could not do anything other then return to this beautiful island for the second time in a year and once again loved the quiet, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere that the place offers. If it is unspoiled beaches you want and if you enjoy walking through tropical forest to get there, this is the place to experience it. During all our walks we bumped in to other people twice in 10 days. It is a unique experience coming from a city environment. This time the snorkelling was fantastic, whether by boat or from shore, we saw the largest variety of fish that we've ever seen anywhere and spent many hours in the lovely 29 degree water.

We were given a fantastic villa within 15 meters of the ocean, a private beach, private pool, club car and more space then we could ever need on a holiday.
We noticed that the resort has upgraded its boats and Gym facilities since our last visit.

A number of the staff still remembered us from our previous visit which ads a little personal touch to the friendly service.

The sundown cocktails were simply delicious and a marvellous way to sit down in the warm early evening before dinner.

Everything was well arranged and slick from the 20 minute airport transfer, by taxi and boat till sitting down with our first glass of Champagne on arrival, and the same can be said for our very early morning departure.

A really quiet paradise where you can actually relax and unwind. Delicious cocktails and food with a wide selection to choose from! The snorkelling was amazing, we loved the swimming pool and selection of beaches around the island. The service is excellent and rooms outstanding - would definitely recommend it!

This was our 2nd visit to Sainte Anne Island and the 1st time with our young daughter. The island is just stunning and perfect for a relaxing family holiday. What makes this hotel so special is the wonderful attentive staff, they cannot do enough for you. On our first visit we stayed half board but this time we took the all inclusive package which is much easier and pretty much everything is included in the all inclusive package including some nice little touches such as a fully stocked mini bar! We had a tropical villa which was perfectly located close to the beach and main reception however even when the hotel was full it was always so quiet and peaceful that you often felt you were the only ones there.

We stayed at the Sainte Anne Resort in January 2014. For the top dollar price we paid we found the whole experience extremely disappointing indeed.

The rooms and the majority of the common areas of the resort are very dated indeed and belong to perhaps the mid 1980’s rather than the 21st century five star luxury that is advertised (and that you are paying for!).

The food in the main resort at breakfast lunch and dinner was bland, unimaginative and totally lacked flare or flavour. The a la carte restaurants were a little better but again nothing outstanding. The restaurant staff had little or no training and could not even explain the simplest of dishes or drinks that were on offer in the main restaurant.

We love snorkelling and although it is true we never swam all the waters around the island there was nothing much to see and a big disappointment if you have been to places like the Maldives.

On the plus side the rooms were perfectly clean (although the furnishings in the common areas were not - some were stained and just plain dirty). The guest relations staff were also very helpful.

The champagne was a nice touch on the all inclusive package but other than that the whole all inclusive option was a big let down.

It would be generous for me to give the resort four stars, three and a half comes to mind at best – five star as advertised – NEVER!

Would I stay again or recommend – no I am sorry I would not. Go to Butlins – you’ll have better food and 21st century accommodation. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. Seriously check out the Seychelles Constant Resort, we drove to see it, it looks a million times better than Sainte Anne.

Sorry Sainte Anne you are not for us or I feel any discerning traveller that is accustomed to five star service.

Room Tip: All rooms appear dated and although clean of general poor quality!

The place is beyond its best days and 4* are more appropriate. All is neat, but most things need a renovation (rooms, bicycles, garden), the dive center looks highly improvised.

Ee enjoyed the resort size that gives room to move or use the free bikes (also kids size) or the big pool.

Food is ok, but after few days, the place lacks diversity (as do other resorts on the Seychelles too).

Good family place to relax a few days.

My whole family (6 adults and 4 grandchildren) recently spent 10 days at this resort on a fully-inclusive package basis. This is important because there are so many varied cockatials that one wants to try them all!

Fabulous food, a wonderful outlook and superb snorkelling from the beach make this one of he best holidays we've had anywhere

Room Tip: Choose rooms 100-104 which are close to Tamaraka Beach, the Sports complex and the jetty and not far...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
One island, one resort in Seychelles If you are dreaming of a luxury holiday in the Seychelles, choose the Sainte Anne Island, a Beachcomber hotel set on an exclusive private island. Sainte Anne Island is undeniably one of the finest hotels in the Seychelles and an ideal choice for couples and honeymooners. An optional all-inclusive package offers you carefree holidays from the moment you arrive until the day of departure. Accommodation is in 87 private villas, 29 of which have private pools. All are set on a 220-hectare private island, surrounded by one of the largest marine parks in the Indian Ocean. Sainte Anne Island blends seamlessly with nature. Lazy days can be spent discovering the island's natural delights. On the pristine beaches, strewn with granite rocks, the only footsteps that you will see will be your own... Colourful bougainvilleas, frangipane trees, hibiscuses and palm trees blend in with the original vegetation. Immerse yourself in an island of dreams and sensual pleasures. Superb cuisine is served in the resort's four restaurants*, which include three beach restaurants to add to the enjoyment of your holiday in the Seychelles. Sainte Anne Island has paid a great deal of attention to its leisure facilities. Nestled in an idyllic tropical setting, the Spa by Clarins is a spacious sanctuary for the body and mind. The resort also has a sports & leisure centre. In the crystal-clear waters of the marine park, a colourful kingdom of sea-life is ready to be explored. The underwater kaleidoscope of colours, shapes and slants of light swirls with innumerable fish species while spectacular corals, sea anemones and algae act as a fascinating stage set. Departing from the sports centre, three different treks invite you to discover the many facets of Sainte Anne Island under the guidance of the qualified staff. Another plus is Sainte Anne's location, just 10 minutes away by boat from Mahe, making it a convenient stepping-stone for island hopping in the Seychelles. *The hotel reserves the right to close up to two restaurants throughout the year. ... more   less
