This Romantic Getaway in the Seychelles Won ‘The World’s Leading Private Island Resort’ Award

14 January 2020 - About Her

The JA Enchanted Island Resort, an ultra-luxurious hideaway in the Seychelles, was awarded ‘World's Leading Private Island Resort 2019’ during the World Travel Awards ceremony in Muscat. Described as ‘a paradise for intimate vacations’, the five-star resort has won regional awards before, but nabbed the ‘World's Leading Private Island Resort’ accolade this year due to outstanding customer feedback across multiple channels and review sites. The property has a 92 percent guest satisfaction rate, largely due to the bespoke attention to detail and personalised service the focused team offer to guests.

“JA Enchanted Island Resort is the hidden gem of the Seychelles, a romantic getaway that guests adore. With just 10 villas, no other resort can compare to the level of exclusivity and bespoke service we provide. We are very proud to receive this award," CEO of JA Resorts & Hotels, Anthony Ross, said.

Memorable experiences that voters underscored included catching marlin, tuna and sailfish and having a private chef prepare the fish in three ways. Spa treatments in the spa located on the hilltop, with three individual treatment pavilions, are another highlight. It seems there’s nothing quite like those stunning views of the Pavilion Bwa Zoli Ker, Yoga Pavilion and private moonlit dinners on the silver sands.

The private island in the Indian Ocean has a unique location as it sits within a designated National Marine Park, the Saint Anne Marine Park. And the 10 exclusive villas are surrounded by eight acres of white sand, lush tropical vegetation and turquoise waters, which are home to some of the world’s most colourful marine life.

Each villa has its own private pool, a private garden with private dining gazebo for intimate in-villa dining experiences and direct access to the pristine beach, which has an unparalleled serene ambience. As well as being able to completely disconnect in the tropical surroundings, guests can sign up for some action and adventure thanks to the wealth of water activities, from yacht trips, paddle boarding and snorkeling to catamaran cruising and big game fishing, on offer. Guests also have the option of going to the main island for cultural discovery experiences.
