JA Enchanted Island Resort Seychelles is a luxurious island hideaway, set on Round Island in the Sainte Anne Marine Park. Just 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. The only hotel on this tiny 8 acre island, it offers guests privacy and outstanding levels of service for a luxury holiday in Seychelles.
Built over 5 years by a local Seychellois family, the resort has been lovingly designed to reflect the heritage and charm of old Seychelles, both in the architecture of the buildings as well as the landscaping. Over 150 pieces of antique furniture were sourced and these are spread throughout the ten villas, providing a relaxed, 'homely' atmosphere in villas that sit in harmony with the landscape. Each villa - all named after endemic Seychelles plants - offers a high degree of privacy and yet none is more than a 5 minute walk from the main restaurant and bar or the spa - all connected via walkways that weave through the lush vegetation and granite rocks.
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. There are 8 one-bedroom villas and 2 two-bedroom villas. All are air-conditioned and have been designed with much use of local takamaka wood and 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. Guests personal preferences 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 outstanding contemporary international and Creole cuisine. Should you not wish to dine here one evening, however, you can choose to have a moonlit dinner or barbecue served by your Butler in the privacy of your villa. The Castaway Bar is an idyllic spot for a sundowner cocktail and to sit and watch boats passing by in the Marine Park.
The island's delightful Serena Spa is located on the hilltop and has three treatment rooms with private steam room, shower and terrace with views over the ocean. Yoga can be taken here and there is also a gym. Snorkelling and kayaks are available from the water sports centre. For guests who need to get off the island, there is a daily complimentary boat transfer to/from Mahé island.
JA Enchanted Island Resort makes an incredible choice for a romantic Seychelles honeymoon or anniversary celebration, particularly as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday. The island can also be rented on an 'exclusive island basis', making it the ultimate retreat for a special birthday or anniversary celebration, or perhaps for a truly memorable Seychelles wedding.
