Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, Mahé

The Sunset View

The Gecko Bar

The Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa is located opposite the busy beach of Beau Vallon, North of Mahé Island (first photo of the article).

Late in the afternoon, with Lisa, my friend from Seychelles, I discover the promenade next to the beach, with many restaurants, bars … and barbecues of fresh fish! 

It’s very lively and crowded (too much people for me). I am happy to have spent most of my stay in the South of Mahé which is more preserved and quiet.

At the Gecko Bar (photo above), one of the restaurants and bars of the Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, you can enjoy a pleasant view of the spectacular sunset over the Indian Ocean (photo below). 

The Room

Great Bedding

The comfortable functional room has a well-equipped bathroom with separated bath, shower and toilet. Nice details: L’Occitane bath products. And a little balcony with a view of the swimming pool, where I used to rest on a sofa the afternoons.. 

The Swimming Pool

Huge And Graphic  

The largest pool in the Seychelles islands! To be honest, I didn’t have time to swim there, because I was busy to visit the different parts of Mahé. I like the tiled drawing of the flowers (photo montage above), more graphic in the evening with the lights.

Boasting a central position in the vast complex, the pool is close to the Grand Savoy restaurant, where I had breakfasts and dinner.

The Gardens

Many Shades Of Green

I really enjoy stopping on the way and stroll ing in one of those greenery oases (photo above). Luxuriant and scattered on all the resort, they offer a little freshness and privacy.

Many thanks for the lovely stay to the Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, the Seychelles Tourism Board and Air Seychelles. Thanks also to Céline and Lisa. As always, these are my opinions.

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.

The Banyan Tree Seychelles

My Beach & Villa

  

Incredible Daylight

Wonderful stay! The Banyan Tree Seychelles is elegant. After a long ferry crossing from La Digue to Mahé (via Praslin), under an alternation of rain and lead, I am happy to sit comfortably on the terrace of the hotel lobby.

Airy chic colonial architecture with a stunning view on a long dream beach! Miles of white sand bordered by coconut palms and the turquoise-emerald Indian Ocean. Gorgeous Anse Intendance bathed in the midday strong light. A pure delight!

Then we go in a kart towards my villa (picture below) nestled in a smaller beach, therefore more exclusive: a pure beauty! In this enchanting setting, I barely look inside the villa: I’m hypnotized by the ocean view from my infinite pool! 

I Just Want To Swim!

Pictures below, the private path to access the small beach, where I will spend several hours alone in the water. A beach just for me … until sunset! 

As effective as in a Thalasso spa, powerful strong waves! I complete the treatment with a steam bath in my large shower. A more than exclusive spa!

    

The Early Morning

 

The Breakfast In Peace

  

The Ocean Is Ubiquitous

The Banyan Tree Seychelles succeeds to highlight a magnificent nature, while adding a classic, discreet and very effective service.

You can eat straight the opposite Imposing granite rock of the Seychelles in the Au jardin d’épices, one of the hotel restaurants where I enjoy having breakfast (photos above and below)!

 

Turtles And Organic Vegetable Garden

The Wildlife Conservation Reabilitation Centre

My turtle girlfriends! From October to February turtles lay eggs on the beach of the hotel. The Wildlife Conservation Reabilitation Centre housed in the hotel’s huge property, takes care of turtles and heals the injured turtles.

In spa baths, “natural” environments have been created to welcome convalescent turtles (pictured left of the photo montage below).

And in the evening, returning to my villa, I have the pleasant surprise of finding a girlfriend tortoise in fabrics, nicely posed on sheets in the shape of waves!

The organic vegetable garden is close to the center for turtles. Cooking and tasting classes are organized in this kiosk surrounded by crops (photos below).

  

Creole Dinner

Thanks you, Dorina!

As I don’t know the Seychelles Creole cuisine, I ask Dorina, the awesome waitress at the Chez Lamar restaurant to choose my dinner (photos below). You can’t imagine the pressure (I only like what I know), LOL!

But Dorina made an excellent choice. In the photo montage above: photo 1, big crush for grated coconut slightly flavored with herbs. Photo 2, very refreshing : the Creole Octopus Salad With Local Lime. 

Photo 3, tasty grilled local fish with 3 different sauces. I never use sauce, but here, I liked the one with curry coco and creole with tomato. 

Everything was delicious, but it was way too much for my stomach ; ))
