Day 1 - Whatever, wherever, whenever – discover MAIA
Upon arrival at Seychelles Airport you will be met by our representative and transferred in a private car to one of the best hotels on the island – the Maia Luxury Resort and Spa. Maia is nestled on a private peninsula surrounded by a lush tropical forest. The secluded beach of Anse Louis is right on its doorstep.
Day 2-3 - Exploring the island of Mahe
Feel free to do whatever pleases you with the time- however, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, why not rent a car and explore the island. Pay a visit to Vitoria, the smallest capital city in the world, in the morning. In the afternoon, explore the Morone Seychellois National Park and admire the spectacular view from the historic ruins of Mission. Spend your days relaxing, reading and sunbathing. Use MAIA’s Spa and awaken your senses in the most luxurious place on Earth.
Day 4 - From paradise to Eden
After a morning dip and a delicious breakfast, your private chauffeur take you to catch a flight to the next island, Praslin. Within 20 minutes after boarding the plane you will be met by our representative and taken to Constance Lemuria – a resort with the best golf course in The Seychelles. The resorts is surrounded by 101 hectares of lush vegetation and the clear, turquoise water of the three local beaches: Grand Anse Kerlan, Petite Anse Kerlan and Anse Georgette.
Day 5 - 6 - Discover (or not) Praslin
It might be difficult to leave the peace and tranquillity of your own little paradise even for a moment but do try and plan at least one day outside the resort. Explore Valee de Mai and spot a rare black parrot – sample the famed Coco de Mer fruit in the morning and, after a leisurely walk, continue your trip to Anse Lazio and enjoy a delicious Creol lunch at the Bonbon Plume Restaurant. Spend the rest of your day on the world’s most beautiful beach, relax and unwind.
Day 7 - Slow down on La Digue
The ferry ride takes only 15 minutes. Enjoy a long night’s sleep, a delicious breakfast and catch the boat to the island of bicycles and sun. From the jetty on La Digue, you will be transferred by electric buggy to your own private paradise – the Le Domaine de l’Orangeraie. There’s no other place like it, with its combination of tropical setting and local architecture, which encapsulate the essence of the unique lifestyle on La Digue.
Day 8-9 - Bicycle tour
Take a look at the map over breakfast and check the route to Anse Sourse d’Argent, one of the most spectacular (& the most photographed) beaches in the world. Again your snorkelling gear is essential. The route will take you along the l’Union Estate where you can visit the local copra factory, a plantation house which dates back to colonial times and a giant tortoise pen. Enjoy lunch on the beach or just cycle back to the village for a takeaway. Cycle around to get the feel of the island, making sure to check out the other magnificent beach of Grand Anse and walk to Petite Anse – a smaller and more tucked away sister of Grand Anse. A word of caution – be mindful of the strong currents.
Day 9 - Goodbye paradise
Sleep long and relax before your journey back, this is the day when you will slowly be making your way back home. First you will be taken to the jetty for a 15 minute ride to Praslin to catch the flight back to Mahe. Our representative will meet you at Mahe airport to say goodbye and help you board your plane home.
