The 100 islands of the Seychelles rise from the Indian Ocean tangled with tropical forest, ringed in powdery sands and translucent shallows. They’re home to the exotic Seychelles paradise flycatcher bird, the lumbering Aldabra giant tortoise – and some of the most luxurious resorts in the world, blending romance, adventure and tranquillity with year-round sun: the ultimate luxury.

Each of the 28 villas on the well-named island of Félicité has a private infinity pool in which you can contemplate the pristine beauty of the beach below. And you have the satisfaction of knowing the footprints you leave there are light – fresh, organic produce is grown on the resort and used in the five-star meals, while indigenous species are planted to restore island vegetation, and coral fragments are cultivated in a nursery and transplanted back to the reef.

    No real need to book one of the beach pool villas here, lovely as they are – the ocean is your private pool, thanks to a natural reef just 50m (165ft) from the dazzlingly white beach in this stretch of Mahe coast. Join a guided snorkelling tour, or simply swim out yourself, or take a kayak in this romantic water paradise. At night, under the white cotton canopy of your king-size bed, you’ll dream of surf and sea.
