22 June 2020 - Living etc

As hotels across the world begin to reopen from July, thoughts have inevitably turned to the next getaway destinations… And what could be more indulgent than hiring a private island for the ultimate luxury escape?

The island is home to the outstanding JA Enchanted Island Resort – 20,000 square metres of paradise sitting in the middle of one of the world’s most lush and beautiful tropical sites, the Saint Anne Marine Park.

The island can be rented and can sleep up to 24 guests, making the perfect party pad in paradise . The announcement coincides with the re-opening of the Seychelles’ International Airport as the group of 115 islands is officially declared free of COVID-19.

And what a place to escape to post-lockdown; awarded ‘World’s Leading Private Island Resort 2019’ at the World Travel Awards, JA Enchanted Island is an upscale hideaway with pearl-white sand and verdant tropical vegetation, surrounded by crystalline turquoise waters and colourful marine life in a designated National Marine Park.

The luxury resort facilities have all taken shape around the island’s natural landscape, where walkways weave through large rock formations and natural scenery provides an idyllic escape and secluded experience for a group of friends or family.

On the island, there are 10 stunning villas available; eight of which are 130 square metres and have their own private pool.Two of the expansive luxury villas named the Enchanted Signature Villa and the Flamboyant Villa are more than 240 square metres each and can accommodate four adults and two children in each, with a private pool and garden with dining gazebo for intimate in-villa dining.

All 10 villas have direct access to the pristine beach for unparalleled scenic beauty.

And the blend of interiors and panoramic views makes for an unforgettable experience; think soaking up scenes of the sun dancing on glistening crystal-clear waters from your luxury bathroom.

You can enjoy private dining experiences including breakfast in bed, moonlight dinners and private barbecues with dedicated chefs. Some of the villas even boast outdoor baths so you can enjoy tub time while gazing at the starlit sky.

There’s also the plenty of opportunities to up your holiday game, from yacht trips to island hopping excursions, paddle boarding, snorkelling, kayaking, and catamaran cruising.

Of course, there’s also a resplendent spa located on the hilltop, featuring a private steam room, shower room, and the stunning views of the yoga pavilion. And when you’re ready to soak up the sun, the main pool is the perfect feet-up-and-flop hotspot.
