A unique Seychelles island-hopping holiday combining 7 days on the enchanting tropical island of Alphonse with a few days on the main island of Mahe. Head to the unspoilt natural paradise of Alphonse to take part in a whole series of memorable experiences. Follow this with 5 days at the luxurious Four Seasons Mahe for a more relaxing few days before you have to head back to your 'everyday' life. This is a family holiday that will keep everyone talking for years!
After a 1-hour light aircraft flight from Mahe, you arrive at the pristine island paradise of Alphonse for an altogether different holiday experience, one where you'll feel close to nature, especially the abundant marine life. Your stay here is within a sumptuously-appointed Beach Villa with private pool - just a few steps from the ocean, but secluded by tropical vegetation for a degree of privacy. Stays on the island are based on Full Board, but should you be out for the day on an excursion, picnic lunches (or similar) are provided.
A holiday on Alphonse, whatever your age, is all about being close to the unique nature and environment. Managed by Blue Safaris Seychelles, there's a huge choice of thrilling experiences, many suitable for children, including diving courses. A number of activities are included on a complimentary basis for all guests and these include: guided cycle tours; nature walks with the Island Conservation team to learn about the unique environment including the chance to see turtles and giant tortoises; guided snorkelling & kayak excursions; plus the amazing (and unique) Flats Lunch - a dining experience like no other on the sand flats of the lagoon. Read our Blue Safari Blog for more details about the conservation projects and how you can help.
Blue Safari Seychelles offers a host of other fascinating and enthralling activities, allowing guests to choose their individual preferences for a perfectly tailored holiday. These can be purchased in advance through your Mahlatini representative and offer unique opportunities to engage with nature, particularly the marine life with opportunities to swim with turtles, manta rays and even sailfish, amongst many. As part of this itinerary, we've included four such experiences: a guided snorkelling excursion in the Alphonse lagoon; an exclusive beach picnic for the whole family; a coral ID snorkelling excursion; and a sundowner cruise. For the more active, thrilling experiences include various fishing and diving adventures - after all, Alphonse offers some of the finest waters in the world for these activities.
After heading back to Mahe, Four Seasons Seychelles is just a 40 minute transfer by road. Enjoy a private pool villa with panoramic ocean views and a wide choice of facilities at one of Seychelles' premier hotels. The main pool is a real hub of the resort and adjacent to the excellent activity centre set beside the idyllic horseshoe-shaped bay, while the children's club provides a daily programme of organised activities to keep younger ones entertained.
