JA Enchanted Island Resort is a luxurious island hideaway, set on Round Island in the Sainte Anne Marine Park. Only 10 minutes by speedboat from the main island of Mahé, it features just ten Creole-style villas with private infinity plunge pools, excellent cuisine and small spa. Although having limited beach options, this tiny 5 acre island offers guests privacy and excellent levels of service.
Built over 5 years by a local Seychellois family, the island has been lovingly designed to reflect the charm of old Seychelles. Some 150 pieces of antique furniture are spread through the ten villas, providing a relaxed, 'homely' sanctuary. It makes an incredible choice for a romantic honeymoon or anniversary and, for the ultimate celebration, can be rented on an 'exclusive island basis' sleeping 24 friends and family, with arrangements tailored to individual requirements. It's also perfect as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday.
Arriving at Enchanted Island Resort after an exhilarating 10 minute speedboat ride, you will immediately get a sense of the serenity and charm of this island paradise. The 8 spacious one-bedroom villas and 2 two-bedroom villas have been built in harmony with the landscape with much use of local takamaka wood; all have spacious private sundecks, loungers, day-beds, dining pavilions, as well as a private pathway down to the sea. Another special feature is the outdoor rain shower and French bathtub on the verandah. Inside, there's a bedroom with king-size bed as well as a separate lounge together with LED TV, DVD player and iPod dock. Personal preferences of guests are catered for in their mini bar and Butler service as well as complimentary Wifi complete the luxury feel to this idyllic island.
The main restaurant - Bounty - has delightful views across to neighbouring Moyenne Island and offers contemporary international and Creole cuisine.
