Naturally blessed by the remote beauty of its Outer Amirantes location, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island has now re-opened its doors to welcome back guests for highly customised stays in its Presidential Villa and multi-bedroom Private Retreats. With this re-opening, health and safety will be front of mind through Four Seasons new global Lead With Care program and contactless Chat experience.

Boasting 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) of white sand beaches and an array of island activities, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island will be welcoming guests exclusively for Private Retreat stays through March 15, 2020, ahead of the full resort re-opening. Over the next few months, guests staying in one of the Private Retreats will benefit from near-exclusive access to Desroches Island from which to enjoy:

A fully customised dining program. Upon arrival, a Four Seasons chef will meet with guests to craft tailored menus to be enjoyed in the privacy of their Residence or in an endless choice of pop-up locations – from a beach picnic to a stargazing dinner on the island’s runway.

Assistance from a dedicated Island Concierge to support in planning and making arrangements for the duration of the stay.

Access to the wide choice of island activities, including diving, getting to know the giant Aldabra tortoises at the Tortoise Sanctuary, tennis and more.

A number of family amenities to cater to all ages.

For guests looking for the widest flexibility, the Resort’s Island Retreat offer includes round trip private charter flights for a minimum stay of three nights, plus daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. Alternatively, the Resort’s Castaway Paradise offer is available for stays of seven nights and is inclusive of round trip domestic flights on the scheduled Thursday flight, plus daily breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Private Jet Access

Private jets are 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).

The Private Retreats

In an organically secluded setting, the Private Retreats in Desroches comprise a Presidential Villa, which through its three separate units may be booked as a Three, Five or Seven Bedroom accommodation, alongside a choice of Three, Four and Five-Bedroom Residence Villas. All Private Retreats boast expansive indoor and outdoor living areas, a private infinity pool and tropical garden, and a picturesque beachfront location.

Lead With Care

Grounded in health care expertise and enabled by access to leading technologies and tools, the Lead With Care program is focused on providing care, confidence and comfort to all Four Seasons guests, employees and residents within the new COVID-19 environment. The new program outlines clear procedures that educate and empower Four Seasons employees to take care of guests and each other. While guests will see many of the enhanced Lead With Care procedures, behind-the-scenes measures also take place through employee training, additional food handling protocols, and enhancements to ventilation systems and other back-of-the-house operations. In addition, Four Seasons continues to invest in its award-winning App and Chat that further allows guests to control how they engage with others – limiting face-to-face interactions while maintaining the highest levels of personal service. Features include the ability to make and manage reservations, request luggage pickup, airport transfers, room service, restaurant and spa reservations, and much more. Wait-free check-in and check-out is also offered, while Four Seasons Chat integration offers instant translation of 100+ languages giving guests the flexibility for contactless engagement throughout their stay.
