(09 Mar 2021) Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island will fully reopen on 15 March 2021. Since mid-December, the luxury resort has only been welcoming those guests who booked a stay in one of the Private Retreats.
Seychelles will reopen international borders to all countries, aside from South Africa, with no quarantine requirement from 25 March 2021.
Located in the Outer Amirantes, Desroches Island is reachable via a 35-minute domestic flight from Mahé, with guests stepping straight off the flight on to the island’s private runway and directly into the resort as part of the seamless arrival process.
As the only resort on the four-mile (6.4 kilometre) long island, guests have every opportunity to design each day with their own custom blend of discovery and relaxation, with an extensive choice of island activities available.
“We are so thrilled to be fully reopening the resort,” said Nick Solomon, Resort Manager. “Over the past few months we have had chance to welcome guests for stays in our multi-bedroom Residence Villas, but to once again be reopening the entire resort, is the moment we have been waiting for. Whether guests are looking to explore our nine miles (14.5 kilometres) of beaches, cycle through towering palm trees while on the lookout for wild-roaming Aldabra tortoises, or heading below the water to discover one of 14 classified dive sites, there is no end of the options available to enjoy here in Desroches, and with the utmost care, the team and I are looking forward to helping guests make the very most of their vacation with us.”
From 15 March, return domestic scheduled flights to Desroches will operate on Thursdays and Saturdays, while private charters will be available daily.
Private jets are also welcome in Seychelles with prior government approval and with Desroches having its own runway, jets may land directly to the island, subject to fees and local authority approval.
