Four Seasons Resort Seychelles in Mahe

Relaxing at The Four Seasons Resort Seychelles

My Favorite Resort

of this first stay in the Seychelles to totally feel cut off from the world! Everything is just magical in this hotel: the landscape, architecture of the villas that blends into the nature, welcome, service and view from wherever you are … the spa and yoga to feel more beautiful from the inside! I’d already presented you to the excellent Four Seasons Sayan – Ubud Bali spa

And I dream that the experience lasts forever too (lol)!

My Gorgeous Villa

  

The Infinite Pool

I am delighted to stay in a (2,002 sq. ft.) Serenity Villa overlooking the Indian Ocean, white sand beach and tropical forest. Blue, white and green colors as far as the eye can see! Wow …

I love the awesome “Hollywood” bathroom and infinity pool where I spend a lot of time (first photo of the article, picture on the right above and second photo below).

 

The Bathroom

    

I’m always impressed

by the attention to detail of the Four Seasons. Beyond an elegant interior design, there is a great mastery of comfort that anticipate all of the our needs as guests! Chic and practical

The Room

     

Yes, Getting Out Of Bed Is A Real Challenge!

But as soon as the curtains are wide open, the amazing sight attracts me on terrace (picture below). And I admire the sunrise … and remain hours to contemplate the infinite horizon! Meditation of a hyperactive!

The Breakfast

The ZEZ Restaurant

I go down to the ZEZ located near the beach, in a nice flowery golf cart for having the breakfast (photo 1 of the assembly above). I like how the buffet is presented with a bagel tree, croissants and breads with chocolate as good as in France! The choice is much more extensive! 

True to my versatile (lol) routine of the moment: today I choice a fried egg with a delicious fresh watermelon juice and green tea!

The Beach

During the hottest hours,

I prefer stay under the covered terracce and plunge in the pool of my villa. It’s also quieter without the children’s cries. I wait until the late afternoon to go swimming in the turquoise water of the Indian Ocean. No more children, no overwhelming sunshine, just a few couples or groups of friends and superb brightness. And I do a contemplative walk on the fine sand.

Then back to the villa, a shower and I go dinner with friends at the Kannel restaurant that serves delicious creole specialties from Seychelles and my chocolate – coconut ice cream (photos below).

The Spa

Oops, I Couldn’t Stop By The Spa Without Testing A Treatment!

In Bali, I experienced a fantastic massage inspired by Tibetan techniques. In the Seychelles, I discover the healing virtues of yoga, thanks to my excellent teacher, Ganga Sadhuka (photos below). 

In a dream setting, I gently practiced postures with legs in the air, to rest my organs! Impressive and deeply relaxing! Far away from the exaggerated acrobatic demonstrations of the trendy yogi gurus on Instagram!

To help me to continue practicing when I will be back home, Ganga elaborated a yoga program with the postures related to my needs. Tailor-made yoga! Namaste.

Many thanks for this fabulous stay to the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles and its great team, especially Amy and Ganga. Also many thanks to the Seychelles Tourism Board and Air Seychelles. As always, these are my opinions.

Travel Begins With a Good Travel Insurance

Travel_Blogger_Photo_Mademoiselle_Le_K_copyright_2014

Okay everyone is not a travel blogger,

but I’m sure many of you have already thought what follows. 

While sitting on the plane to Bangkok, as part of an itinerant blog trip in nature reserves, I suddenly clicked! What about if I had an accident there … I don’t know … injured by wild animals (yes could happens!), or a bad fall in a treck … and so on…                 

A stupid or crazy stuff totally improbable that can cost a fortune even with a good health insurance! And then I panic, I didn’t suscribe any travel insurance! Of course landing at Bangkok, I forget everything to focus on my pictures and notes. Fortunately the travel was uneventful.                        

Few more blog trips later, still not assured and less and less reassured, when I meet by chance Allianz Global Assistance, I found it was as a clear sign of destiny ; )

What kind of travel insurance to purchase?    

Answer: What kind of traveler are you? 

It depends on how often you travel. If you go on business trips or family holidays, if you study abroad, or go like a digital nomad or for a several months sabbatical … If you practice or not extreme sports, will visit the natural risk zones etc …

Time travel insurance or annual travel insurance

As a travel blogger, I chose the World Gold Protection, an annual travel insurance really complete that covers me during my travels around the world. To which, it is recommended to add before departure, the natural disasters, strikes and terrorism option of 8 €. This option is only available with a World Gold Protection or Top Selection insurance.

How much does it cost?

Here are some examples of prices in relation to the World Gold Protection which is the most comprehensive annual travel insurance of Allianz Global Assistance : 

– Going over 3 months. You are a student and participate in a 6 months Erasmus exchange in South Africa. The World Gold Protection will cost 285 €. Plus for the remaining three months , an extra 40 € or 3 x 40 €. Total: 405 €. 

– You plan a world tour boat with your family during 12 months. The annual insurance for the whole family is 350 €, so it would be 350 € + (9 x 40 €) or 710 €.  

To get an estimate of the price compared to your needs, the best is yet to make an estimate of Allianz Global Assistance.

Le voyage commence avec une bonne assurance voyage

Travel_Blogger_Photo_Mademoiselle_Le_K_copyright_2014

Ok tout le monde n’est pas blogueuse voyage,

mais je suis sûre que vous êtes nombreux à avoir déjà pensé ce qui suit.

C’est en m’asseyant dans l’avion pour Bangkok, dans le cadre d’un blog trip itinérant dans des réserves naturelles que j’ai soudain le déclic! Et s’il m’arrivait un accident sur place… je ne sais pas… blessée par des animaux sauvages, ou une mauvaise chute lors d’un trek… 

Bref le truc tout bête, ou carrément improbable qui peut coûter une fortune même avec une bonne mutuelle! Et là, j’angoisse : je n’ai pas d’assurance voyage! Arrivée à destination, j’oublie tout bien sûre, pour me concentrer sur mes photos et mes notes. Heureusement le déplacement se déroule sans incident. 

Quelques blog trips plus tard, toujours pas assurée (et de moins en moins rassurée!) : aussi lorsque je rencontre un peu par hasard Allianz Global Assistance, j’y vois comme un signe évident du destin ; )

What_insurance_Photo_Mademoiselle_Le_K_copyrith_2014

Quel type d’assurance voyage souscrire?

Réponse : quel genre de voyageur êtes-vous?

Tout dépend de la fréquence à laquelle vous voyagez. Si vous partez en voyages d’affaires, ou vacances en famille, comme étudiant à l’étranger, digital nomade ou en congé sabbatique de plusieurs mois… Si vous pratiquez ou non des sports extrêmes, visiterez des zones à risques naturels etc… 

Assurance voyage temporelle ou assurance voyage annuelle

En tant que blogueuse voyage, j’ai opté pour la World Gold Protection, une assurance voyage annuelle très complète et sans franchise qui me couvre dans mes déplacements partout dans le mode. A laquelle, il est recommandé d’ajouter avant le départ, l’option catastrophes naturelles, grèves et terrorisme à 8 €. Cette option est uniquement disponible avec une assurance World Gold Protection, ou une Top Selection.

Combien ça coûte?

Voici quelques exemples de prix par rapport à la World Gold Protection qui est l’assurance voyage annuelle la plus complète d’Allianz Global Assistance :

– Vous partez plus de 3 mois. Etudiant, vous effectuez un échange Erasmus de 6 mois en Afrique du Sud. La World Gold Protection vous coûtera 285 €. Plus, pour les 3 mois restants, un supplément de 40 € par mois, soit 3 x 40 €. Total : 405 €. 

– Autre cas de figure, vous projetez un tour du monde en bateau en famille sur 12 mois. L’assurance annuelle pour toute la famille est de 350 €, donc cela reviendrait à 350 € + (9 x 40 €), soit 710 €.

Pour avoir une estimation du prix, par rapport à vos besoins, le mieux est encore de faire un devis sur Allianz Global Assistance.
