is located on a private island covered in lush tropical vegetation, just ten minutes by boat from Mahé. Situated within the protected bay of the marine park, the waters are generally very calm, ideal for snokelling and for families with young children. There are two sandy beaches, one in front of the resort pool, the other more secluded and quiet. The Bob Marlin Miniclub has friendly, helpful staff and a fully supervised, diverse activity programme.


The 87 luxury sea-facing villas are set in luxuriant gardens along a one kilometre stretch of beach. Tastefully furnished, well-equipped rooms feature king size beds and palatial bathrooms with outdoor showers. Each has a terrace or gazebo with sun loungers.


The Spa by Clarins is a sublime retreat with all the requisite treatments on offer.


There are golf-carts or mountain bikes for hire and you can arrange deep sea fishing, glass bottom boat trips within the marine park, or day excursions to Praslin and the islands beyond. Non-motorised watersports are complimentary. PADI qualified divers can make use of the CMAS dive centre. Request a picnic lunch and take one of the hiking trails that lead to remote coves.
