Let’s face it: you are stressed out. Who is not? But it is time for a vacation and there is no better destination for relaxation than Seychelles. Located in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, this country boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with granitic peaks and hidden sandbars to explore.
Grab your camera and get ready to live your best life. Here are six ways to relax in this lush paradise.
Walk the beach with a local
Walking along the beach with a local is one of the best ways to get a feel for Seychelles’s culture. There are plenty of great beaches to walk on, but if you want to fully experience it, we recommend visiting one that is not too crowded. We recommend going early in the morning or late in the afternoon—the best part about walking along these uncrowded beaches is seeing how quiet they can be!
Recline in a spa
Spas are a great way to relax and rejuvenate. Many resorts have them, and they will be happy to book you in. You can also book spa treatments at the last minute if you decide that you need some relaxation time. If you are traveling with your family or partner, spas are a wonderful way for everyone to spend quality time together.
You can book a relaxing spa treatment at Story Seychelles hotel and spa. They offer an array of treatments, from massages to facials and more. You can even book a private treatment in your room if you want to get away from it all.
Whether it is for relaxation or romance, we want everyone’s vacation to be stress-free!
Approachable luxury at its finest
A luxury hotel should be approachable, accessible, friendly and comfortable. It should be relaxing as well as quiet. In this sense, luxury hotels in Seychelles are some of the best in the world. Some of these hotels have even been awarded a five-star rating by The World Travel Awards for being among the most luxurious resorts in Africa.
The Seychelles are known for their luxury hotels, and Story Seychelles is no exception. Located on one of the most remote islands in the Seychelles archipelago, this 5-star resort offers everything from an infinity pool on the beach to fine dining at their restaurant.
Seychelles consists of 115 islands and each one has its own unique characteristics. Most people who visit Seychelles do so on vacation. However, it is possible to rent an apartment when living on one of these islands full time if you wish to do so!
Watch the stars
Watching the stars is a great way to unwind at night. However, finding a good spot where you can see the stars clearly can be tricky. Seychelles has many areas with little light pollution, so there are plenty of spots that are perfect for stargazing.
For privacy, try renting a private island or villa
If you are looking for a place to relax, private islands and villas are a great option. When you rent your own island or villa, you can enjoy complete privacy. You won’t have to worry about sharing your space with other people or having your relaxation interrupted by loud noises or crowds of tourists.
This will give you the perfect opportunity to relax in comfort and tranquility while enjoying the beach and water of Seychelles.
Go horseback riding to relax and explore
Horseback riding is a great way to explore Seychelles and relax. Whether you are going for a solo ride or with friends, horseback riding will give you a unique perspective on the stunning landscape of the islands.
Horseback riding can be done on many different types of terrain, from gypsy trails to rocky trails. Some trails are flat and easy while others are more challenging and include steep hillsides and obstacles such as fallen logs or creeks that need to be crossed by jumping over them (called “jumping”).
When choosing your horseback tour it is important to consider how much experience you have with horses prior to booking an excursion. A good way to gauge this is by talking with other horseback riders who have participated in tours similar to yours before making a decision about which one sounds best for your needs!
Seychelles is an ideal place to take a holiday, especially if you are looking for a relaxing break from the rigors of everyday life. There are not many places in the world that offer the same combination of beauty, seclusion and luxury as Seychelles. It is truly one of those ‘bucket list’ destinations that will stay with you long after your vacation has ended.
Whether you want to relax on the beach with a book or explore the island’s natural beauty by horseback riding through its dense jungles, there are plenty of things to do in this tiny island nation that will make any vacation memorable.
