Feb 15, 2020

Alfresco Showers, Nature-Themed Décor and Space for Families to Enjoy and Relax

Good things come in pairs! Luxury eco island resort, Alphonse Island in the Seychelles Outer Islands introduces two exquisite new villas to their existing 22 private Beach Bungalows and five Beach Suites. Perfect for families and larger groups, both four-bedroom Beach Villas offer space and refined interiors to make any holiday perfection itself.

With impeccable design by architect Lisa Rorich, a specialist in designing luxury island projects in the Seychelles as well as safari camps, the two 600 square metre Beach Villas seamlessly blend traditional Creole style such as thatched roofs using local materials with polished screed floors and open wooden beams reflecting a fresh island style for the 21st Century. Soothing interiors by Andrew Irving and Mario Rodrigues bring the remote island setting inside using artfully recycled wood furniture, nature-inspired art and chandeliers with splashes of tropical colour throughout.

Set overlooking perfect beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean, sea flats and protected coral reefs, both Beach Villas are surrounded by tropical scenery. Four spacious double bedrooms per villa, all with luxurious island-style en-suite bathrooms and outside shower areas. Large, light-filled open-plan living, and dining areas include a fully equipped kitchen and lead to a sun deck and private plunge pool. A private chef can be arranged upon request to create tailor-made menus for in-villa dining and both villas include their own golf buggy.

Each Beach Villa sleeps up to eight adults and four children. Seven-night packages from £4,500pp per night full board, (based on four sharing), and also includes Wi-Fi, a generous array of activities and charter flight transfers.
