Luxury bepoke holidays to Denis Island, Seychelles

Denis Island is a coral island situated to the north of the main island of Mahé. This idyllic and romantic resort of just 25 cottages nestles amongst casuarina trees and coconut palms beside the white sandy beach. Decorated in calm and natural colours, each cottage boasts its own courtyard and private veranda facing the sea. Nearby, pathways meander through the coconut groves leading to the centre of the island and the main house. After recent renovations to the cottages and facilities there is a new restaurant with a show kitchen, as well as a new bar, wine cellar and deck area for outside dining, and a swimming pool near the beach. The turquoise waters which surround Denis are renowned for their marine life. Here guests can enjoy a variety of water sports, including windsurfing, sailing, fishing and diving; both beginners and experienced divers are catered for. Fishing charters leave daily from the resort. There are also other activities to enjoy at Denis Island, including tennis and a jogging trail, which is very popular with guests. Dining is relaxed and informal in atmosphere; the restaurant is located by the seafront, where guests can choose from a selection of local and international cuisine including seafood and exotic salads. Evenings can be spent relaxing, perhaps reading in the informal Bigorno lounge or enjoying a drink at the bar. Denis Island is a most pleasant and secluded hideaway of high quality.

About Seychelles

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Seychelles is really the tropical island of your dreams come to life; a deserted, soft white-sand beach lapped by gentle, turquoise water and fringed by dense coconut palms. The Seychelles are some of the most beautiful islands in the world and due to careful growth, this natural beauty has been protected and preserved. On land the Seychelles are home to rare species of bird and tree, including the amazing coco de mer palm and the black parrot, as well as abundant orchids, hibiscus, frangipani and bougainvillaea. In the seas surrounding the islands of the Seychelles, many areas of which have been designated marine national parks, over 150 species of tropical fish are to be found as well as abundant coral. The pace of life is slow and relaxed, even on Mahe but particularly on the smaller islands. The Seychelles is also known for its racial harmony and their people are a mixture of African, European, Indian, Chinese and Arab. The beauty of the islands and the relaxed way of life have attracted artists over the years and today you are more than welcome to visit them at home and in their studios. A luxury holiday to the Seychelles offers you not just the archetypal idyll of palm-fringed beaches but also a relaxed and harmonious approach to life.

Highlights of the Seychelles

The famous coco de mer found in the Vallee de Mai on Praslin. Paintings by numerous local artists including Michael Adams and Christine Harter to be viewed and purchased. Local handicrafts include batik, pottery, clothes and boxes made from local wood. The amazing beaches of the islands including Anse Lazio on Praslin and Anse Source d`Argent on La Digue. Cousin Island off Praslin is home to several endangered species of birds and the black noddies. Walks on the islands. Toddy made from coconut palm. Local beers are called Seybrew and EKU.
