Hidden in amongst the high-reaching palm trees and dense vegetation that grows naturally on Mahé Island, the Four Seasons Resort is staggered along the hillside of the Baie Lazare cove. Overlooking the turquoise lagoon, the hotel has an enviable location for accessing the bay’s sandy beachfront, as well as having stunning panoramic views of the mountain range and granite precipice visible from the resort.
The accommodation at the Four Seasons Resort consists of luxury, tree house villas, each designed with chic interiors and modern furnishings. Lavish touches adorn the spacious living areas, such as a large walk in wardrobe, and a bathroom fitted with a deep soak tub and glass-walled, indoor rain shower. Each villa has a timber wraparound terrace, completed with a private infinity edge pool.
As you would expect from a Four Seasons property, the resort features an extensive range of leisure pursuits. Guests can go for a dip in the large, outdoor swimming pool, or work up a light sweat in the state-of-the-art fitness centre. Situated so close to the bay, the resort also has a water sports pavilion, where guests can try aqua activities such as kayaking, snorkelling, paddle boating, boogie boarding and windsurfing, catamaran sailing or big-game fishing.
Perhaps the most distinguished member of the resort’s facilities is the signature spa area. Designed with five individual spa pavilions, the centre offers an array of international wellness treatments and therapies, including a jet lag recovery spa and a unique island Coco der Mer body scrub. The resort also offers a junior spa service.
The dining experience that the Four Seasons Resort has to offer excels all expectations. Internationally recognised chefs run the resort’s kitchens, creating a menu with modern interpretations of Mediterranean, Southeast Asian and Creole dishes.
Both restaurants deliver something unique and special for its diners. Zez offers fine dining, while perched on top of the resort hillside, overlooking the spectacular Indian Ocean. Alternatively, Kannel’s open plan, beachside setting allows diners to enjoy a more relaxed, al fresco environment. Each restaurant has its own bar lounge area, serving pre-dinner aperitifs, after dinner drinks and sheesha.
