Seychelles Family Holidays

Known world-wide as having the planet's most beautiful islands, the Seychelles archipelago, with its lush tropical vegetation, pristine white beaches and safe swimming lagoons, is family holiday heaven.

Our Mahlatini family holiday experts know the islands of the Seychelles intimately and which resorts will be best suited to make your ideal Seychelles family holiday. There are many islands and you can read our expert guide to choosing which Seychelles islands to visit in our recent Blog post. The larger resorts provide an abundance of room choices (some with large private villas), children's pools and Kid's Clubs (generally for ages 4 - 12 years) running indoor and outdoor activities and excursions.

With the little ones being kept amused you can enjoy being pampered at the Spa or take to the water for a spot of windsurfing, sailing or kayaking. This will allow you a little 'me' time before bringing the family together again for yet more quality time.

The resorts' restaurants will provide menus for all ages from infants to those who wish to try more exotic cuisine and also offer babysitting services for those nights you would like to dine alone.

See our climate and weather guide to check the best times to visit Seychelles.

With years of experience both visiting and planning family holidays in the Seychelles our experts will not only be best placed to find the right hotel for you but will also be fully briefed on all special offers available to families and will expertly guide you on the best time to travel.

You may even wish to break your trip to Seychelles with a stopover in Dubai. Our Mahlatini experts will be able to tailor your preferred choice of Dubai hotel for your family holiday.

Well organised, good presentation of information, good guidance on choices My only slight suggestion would be to assist with holding seats on flights

Zambia - Fantastic accommodation great people and family atmosphere at the lodge. Charmaine organised some wonderful trips for us. Food excellent and no problem catering for kids. South Africa - great lodge again. our villa was cold Mahlatini :). great game rides saw all the big fives but the lions but got compensated by seeing the wild dogs. Mahlatini were very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. organised a trip of a lifetime

Family Holiday to Seychelles

Robert and Estelle Mayhew

It was an excellent vacation, with plenty to do for this family of four. And though not everyone in the family loved birdwatching, though was always something fun and interesting to do. The one day recovery, so to speak, at Eden Bleu, was nice, and the combination of the unique, but primitive, Bird Island, followed by the resort L'Archipel, was a great idea.
