One such resort is Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare. Located on the exclusive south-end of the archipelago’s main island, Mahé, this rustic-chic hideaway is an ideal destination for those looking to get off the tourist track.

As it is the only hotel in the bay, the area receives very few outside visitors, and guests are able to relax and enjoy their time on the beach in relative seclusion.

However, if you and your significant other are looking to do more than just recline in a sunbed while taking in exquisite views of glittering turquoise seas, you are sure to be impressed by the facilities offered at the watersports and recreation pavilions.

An onsite dive centre and complimentary snorkelling gear will assist you in exploring the Seychelles’ abundant marine landscapes, while a well-equipped gym and outdoor sports courts join an Olympic-length swimming pool in the resort’s artillery of fitness apparatus.

A short hike through dense jungle will guide you to a vast granite elevation for an unforgettable hill-top yoga class, overlooking the resort and tranquil Baie Lazare.

For intimate, hassle-free elopements or vibrant tropical celebrations with your nearest and dearest, contact Kempinski Seychelles Resort today to begin planning your world-class island escape.
