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.

After A Beach Day

Today, The Water Is Chilled And Stirred In Comporta

After some swimming in powerful waves and rolls, we chill out in comfortable chairs. Wrapped in sweet fleece blankets (yep, freezing cold wind), silent I look at the ocean and beautiful beach.

Twenty minutes later (by car), we arrive at the Sublime Comporta: a n exclusive hotel with 14 rooms and suites in an posh country house with a Mediterranean influence. This retreat is nestled in the center of a vast pine forest (17 acre-estate). The architecture tastefully blends into the setting.

By discovering our suite (the Owner’s suite), I am nicely surprised! Refined furnishing chosen with taste, a mixture of handcrafted items and famous designers pieces, the attention to detail, intimate spacious airy volume with lots of light and a peaceful view overlooking part of the property.

Time Froze

A short stop at the spa and already 8 p.m. something … Back to the suite, warm soft light of an endless late afternoon. In the garden, a wooden hut for yoga and meditation. I have to prepare myself for dinner, but I slouch.

Extra zen, I like to hang out and the concept of having nothing else to do: the Mediterranean part of my mix. Just the pleasure of being, observing and disconnecting.

There is also a jacuzzi in the other terrace of the suite, which overlooks the shower and large bathroom. Okay, I have to hurry up, our table is reserved for 9 pm, well let’s say 9.30 p.m. (lol). Tomorrow I will test the glamorous pool before the beach.

It’s Time To Hit The Road Again, Miss!

Last March, I was invited in Switzerland, to a conference about a luxury travel (a post soon). The first topic was to define today luxury: we all agree to define it by experience and service. And Casa da Cisterna is a perfect mix of these two concepts!

During my trip to the Center of Portugal, I had a real crush on this little gem nestled in the castle of Castelo Rodrigo, a medieval village overlooking a wide plain. Olympian calm and a view to die for! To open a book and curl up in a hammock.

Speaking of experience, Ana Berliner, the charming owner of Casa da Cisterna and her great team have prepared a surprise: a wilderness dinner atop a mountain overlooking Spain. Simple and elegant: one of the best memories of my stay in the Center!

Intimate

The more I travel, fewer places where instantly, I feel really good! Beyond the decor, it is first a question of energy, space and light. Upon entering my room, I had this reassuring diffused sensation of clarity, sharpness and sweetness.

Each room is decorated differently. The facilities are new, with separate shower and toilet, and the bedding is impeccable. In a weekend, I removed 15 days of insomnia :)) Photo below: the golden morning light and breakfast on the terrace. I never tire of the view!
