Escapism, luxury and the shifting colours of the Indian Ocean: Desroches Island is a haven of tranquillity for individuals, couples and families all seeking a postcard-perfect paradise. It is both life simplified to the elements of sea, land and sky and elevated to the luxury accommodations, activities and the amenities expected of a destination Forbes Magazine has called one of the ‘Top 10 Remote Hotels in the World.’ Each elegant residence here has been constructed with privacy in mind – so you’ll feel like you’ve landed on a deserted isle.
Take your pick from garden-fringed suites, spacious retreats and what are arguably the most exclusive dwellings in the whole of the Seychelles: the Dibwa Retreats and Residence. The Dibwa Retreats house three bedrooms, a Miele kitchen, separate dining area, entertainment room, and an infinity pool in a beautifully kept garden. The Dibwa Residence, meanwhile, is perfect for large families. It has five bedrooms (four of which face the sparkling sea) but can accommodate 10 people in total, while its two master bedrooms each have a private plunge pool and open-air en-suite bathrooms. And if it’s al fresco adventure you seek, you’ll be itching to explore more than 14 classified scuba dive sites, try paddle boarding, or head over to Alphonse Island, where who’ll be treated to one of the world’s most exceptional fly fishing experiences.
