The Seychelles is the name for an archipelago of 115 beautiful islands in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Kempinski Seychelles Resort is this and more. The resort is perfect for a private getaway for just the two of you and can also host a larger event to share with your friends, family and loved ones. Be it an intimate ceremony, a glamorous gala or a casual get together, they’ll be happy to assist you in fulfilling your dream honeymoon or wedding.

This exquisite luxury resort sits nestled in lush palms, tropical forests and one of the longest private beaches around.

Le Méridien Fisherman’s Cove sits at the western tip of the famous and picturesque ivory sands of the Beau-Vallon beach. That, and the cove’s lush gardens make for an idyllic setting for a relaxing escape.

For foodies, there are a number of excellent choices centered around their passion for Creole cuisine – also, dining at the pontoon gazebo overlooking the crystal clear water is not to be missed; the opulent tropical atmosphere really sums up the paradise on offer here.
