Whether you are staying at one of the Seychelles’ many honeymoon resorts with your new spouse, or simply taking a yearly holiday with your boyfriend or girlfriend, this archipelago in the Indian Ocean is the perfect place for couples. With a myriad of fun activities to do and romantic spots to visit, a trip to these islands is sure to be unforgettable for all the right reasons.
Although there are many water sports to enjoy and beaches to relax on, there are also several activities that are especially suited to couples. Here are 3 of the most romantic things to do in the Seychelles with your partner.
The activity that should be at the top of every couple’s list when they venture to the Seychelles is chartering a private boat to take them on a trip to the islands of their choice. With an incredible 115 islands – only a few of which are inhabited – hiring a boat is a great way to enjoy some romantic alone time as well as explore all that this African paradise has to offer.
You can research the islands that you would most like to visit before your departure, or instead contact one of the many reputable companies offering boat tours and ask for their suggestions before you arrive.
As the best Seychelles honeymoon resorts and hotels for couples are located on the 3 main islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue, a private boat charter will allow you to enjoy the comfort and luxury of top of the range accommodation, yet still give you the freedom to explore islands where no one else is.
The second suggestion for an activity that you can enjoy as a couple is a spa day, as many Seychelles honeymoon resorts and luxury hotels offer a range of spa treatments with both Eastern and Western influences. Many good spas will offer a couple’s treatment packages, so you and your partner can spend the day relaxing and indulging in your well-being together.
As mentioned above, the main islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue have the best choice when it comes to spa services, with Mahe being the best by far. The reason for this is simply that Mahe is the biggest and most inhabited island, which means that there is far more choice here than anywhere else.
Search online for accommodation that also offers spa treatments as part of its packages for couples, as this is an easy way to add a little luxury to your holiday together. After enjoying your treatments, you can then go to share a delicious cocktail together whilst gazing out at a romantic sunset over the Indian Ocean.
The last activity that is recommended for couples on a honeymoon is to enjoy some of the island’s finest cuisine together in your own penthouse suite. The island features many exquisite dishes and a great deal of fresh fish, fruits and vegetables, all of which are served up in a variety of dishes with many international influences.
The influences of Creole, French, British, Chinese, African and Indian cooking is definitely seen in the nation’s food, and sampling a seafood degustation menu can only be topped by enjoying it all on your private balcony. Many of the best hotels in the Seychelles will offer this high standard of room service, ensuring you enjoy the flavours of the islands in the romantic comfort of your own room.
There are many activities to enjoy in the Seychelles, but nothing quite beats the thrill of chartering a boat with your loved one and touring some beautiful deserted islands. Indulge in a couple’s spa treatment package for some ultimate relaxation together, and then top it all off with a delicious meal for two brought to your luxurious penthouse suite.
