GEO Information

Located on the archipelago's main island of Mahe, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is quietly tucked away on the south-west coast, at Petite Anse in Baie Lazare, surrounded by pristine white sandy beaches and crystalline clear waters.
The resort is just a 30 minutes' drive from Seychelles International Airport.

  • Introduction

    Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is a remote, hillside retreat that embraces the natural simplicity of treetop living. It covers a secluded area of 170 acres on the southwest coast of Mahe, and comprises 67 villas and suites, and 29 Four Seasons Residences that descend down a lushly forested incline to the private, horseshoe beach of Petite Anse. Creole-inspired design complements the dramatic topography, with granite boulders lining the powder-white beach, steep jungle slopes and a shoreline indented with ancient pirate coves.

    High above the bay, the Four Seasons hilltop spa epitomizes the sense of tranquility and seclusion found throughout the Resort. Other facilities include two restaurants and two lounge bars, an outdoor swimming pool; a water sports pavilion; a comprehensive fitness center; library; art gallery and Kids for All Seasons Programme featuring ‘play and spray' pool and play area.

    At the base of the resort, black granite boulders, powder-white sand and lush tropical foliage combine with the azure blues of the sea and sky to create a vivid image of beachside perfection.

    With refreshing warmth and devoted attention, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles awakens the joy of fresh discovery.

  • ZEZ

    The resort's main restaurant, ZEZ (Creole for a zither, a traditional string instrument), offers an extensive Continental, Asian and American breakfast buffet with specialty dishes available à la carte. Dinner showcases Mediterranean dishes with Arabic influences. The restaurant focuses on simple cuisine and deep flavors and offers a wide variety of fresh fish, seafood, extra virgin olive oils, tapas, antipasti, mezzes and specialty Arabic breads. An extensive wine list features 250 wine labels from the Old and New World. A choice of indoor, covered and open-air seating is arranged beneath high thatched roofs, offering spectacular ocean and sunset views from halfway up the hillside. Set menus are available for larger groups, with special children's menus and services also available.

    Kannel

    Kannel (Creole for ‘cinnamon') brings authentic international and Creole-influenced flavors to Petite Anse from a sheltered spot amongst the cinnamon trees adjacent to the pool. The restaurant also serves nutritionally balanced spa cuisine as well as snacks, salads and pizzas from the restaurant's wood-fired oven. Lunch is an inspiring combination of lighter bites influenced by Creole flavors, including ingredients grown in the resort's lush grounds. Dinner features the favorite local dishes of the almost entirely Seychellois team alongside a large selection of international specialties. The wine list consists of around 60 labels with an excellent selection from France and Italy as well as New World wines from South Africa, Australia, Chile and Argentina. Guests can join Kannel's chefs on their daily foray to gather ingredients or learn how to prepare traditional Creole dishes in an open-air cooking class.

    ZEZ Lounge

    Infused with a warm and refined elegance, ZEZ Lounge is the perfect spot to enjoy sushi and sashimi, pre-dinner cocktails or after-dinner drinks.

  • Resort Beach

    The secluded, horse-shoe beach that lies at the foot of Four Seasons Resort Seychelles is one of the island's best-kept secrets. Black granite boulders provide a dramatic backdrop to the powder-white sand and azure waters of the secluded cove.

Due to its protected position, the beach is remarkably free from erosion, maximizing its picture-perfect appeal.
