Waldorf Astoria Platte Island Hero

Waldorf Astoria Seychelles Platte Island

Discover Waldorf Astoria Seychelles Platte Island

Waldorf Astoria Seychelles Platte Island offers a new idea for private island luxury. Set on a low-lying sandy cay surrounded by a reef and lagoon, just 20 minutes by light aircraft from the main island of Mahe, this is a pristine sanctuary where lavish facilities blend with rare conservation learning experiences. Most of the 50 private pool villas have ocean views, but are set back from the beaches within tropical palms so as to minimize light pollution. With personal concierge services, tailored activities can be created for couples or families alike.

Vacations here may be as active or relaxed as you would like. Enjoy exceptional garden and ocean to table dining choices, learn to wave surf or kite surf, or head to the spa for a secluded oasis of pampering treatments. The key highlight, however, is the island’s unique natural beauty and diverse ecosystem. Rich in marine life, expect to see eagle rays, reef sharks and hawksbill turtles which feed on the large seagrass meadows. Marine activities are organised by the specialist Blue Safari Seychelles and range from scuba diving to guided snorkelling and fly fishing to a reef flats expedition. There’s also the opportunity to see, and take part in, some of the various conservation projects run by local non-profit organizations to preserve the nature of the island.
