Detailed Itinerary 

On arrival in Mahe, Seychelles you will be met by a representative and transferred to your domestic flight to Desroches Island. Desroches stands on a submerged atoll, 230 kilometers southwest of Mahé, and is the most eastern island in the Amirantes group. It is 6km long and 1.5km wide at its widest point. Encircled by 13 kilometers of white sand beaches and surrounded by about 70 kilometers of reef just waiting to be explored, the island drops some 2,000 meters into the clear blue water of the Indian Ocean and is teeming with abundant marine life. Big game fishing
is excellent and Desroches is also considered one of the best diving areas in the Indian Ocean. Some 14 sites with attractions such as chimneys, tunnels, canyons and caves will entertain and challenge all levels of divers.

Desroches Island Resort consists of 20 beautifully furnished private suites providing spacious accommodations. Of colonial style, these individual suites are scattered through coconut palm groves and vibrant colorful gardens and are just a few meters from the island's west-facing beach. In addition, there are also 28 four-bedroom villas, each with private pool.

On day four, you will be transferred back to the airport in time for your flight to Mahe. On arrival in Mahe you will be met and assisted to your waiting helicopter in time for you transfer to Fregate Island. Named after the acrobatic Frégate bird, Frégate Island is a private island where no day visitors are allowed. Instead, the seven beaches, including Anse Victorin, renowned as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and the two fresh water swimming pools are for the exclusive use of the island's guests.

Construction of the resort was subject to strict regulations to safeguard the environment, and the preservation and protection of the island's unique flora and fauna continues to be among Frégate's main priorities. The resort also supports the local community in many ways. Together with 14 bird species, Frégate Island is also home to a wild herd of more than 400 Aldabra giant tortoises, one of only three wild-roaming populations left in the Seychelles. The Hawksbill turtle and green turtle, both critically endangered, are also frequent visitors to the shores of the island for nesting and egg-laying. Frégate Island offers a host of activities on, in, and under the water. Sailing and motorboats can take you to the numerous dive sites around the island and the turquoise lagoon, protected by a small reef, is particularly safe for swimmers, snorkelers and beginner divers.

On day seven, you will be transferred by helicopter to Praslin Island. Once there, you will be met and transferred to Constance Lemuria Resort for three nights. Imagine a setting of lush vegetation which has been untouched over the centuries. The story is that when the continents parted, a small piece of paradise survived, the Lémuria. Nowhere else could this be as true as in the Seychelles. This is especially true on the white sandy beaches of Anse Kerlan, where turtles still lay their eggs in total tranquility. The eight Senior Suites located either on the ground floor, or on the top floor, are all exceptionally spacious. The suites were designed to blend in with the outstanding natural beauty of their surroundings.

Next you will be transferred back to Praslin Airport in time for your flight to Mahe. On arrival in Mahe you will be transferred to the Hilton Northolme Resort and Spa for three nights. The Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort and Spa, on the island of Mahe, is set on the hillside among granite boulders, thick forest, coconut palms and mango trees. Its hillside location ensures magnificent 270-degree ocean views. You can enjoy views of the ocean from your balcony, as you relax in the fresh ocean air in your spacious and comfortable room. The infinity pool also offers fantastic ocean views, with a three-level deck where you can lounge in the sun.

Pamper yourself at Duniye Spa in its beautiful location on giant granite boulders overlooking the sea. Unwind with health, beauty and wellness treatments, as well as rejuvenating Ayurvedic treatments. In the rare event that you are inspired to stay indoors, relax in the library, or make use of the pool table. When you feel more adventurous, a range of water activities are available at the resort. Also offered is complimentary snorkeling and kayaking.
