The prestigious Abode 2 magazine in UK has described Seychelles as the place where you would want to do and see everything because the destination “lives up to even the highest expectations”.

The islands have received coverage through 10 pages in the Summer Issue of the magazine which brings readers the finest in luxury resort properties around the world.

Besides the destination, two other properties have received coverage, namely Desroches Island and Eden Island.

Entitled ‘Seychelles Serenade’, the destination article describes the islands as an image of near-cliched perfection, with sandy beaches, shady palms and warm, turquoise waters.

But the writer, James Sinclair, also says that the sun-kissed Seychelles has so much more to offer.

He describes Mahe as the ‘perfect base to explore local life beyond the sun lounger’, with ‘must-do’ visits to the capital Victoria, the National Museum of History and Botanical Gardens.

From Mahe, he says visitors can island hop and discover other hidden treasure on islands like Silhouette, Praslin and La Digue.

The writer also dedicates part of the coverage to the main events in Seychelles such as the Eco-Healing Marathon, Carnaval International de Victoria, Creole Festival and SUBIOS, Seychelles Festival of the Sea.

In the coverage for Eden Island, writer Serena Templeton describes the property as “fast approaching its place as a modern-day haven of exotic delights” whilst Laura Henderson has this to say for Desroches Island Private: “Move over the Maldives, the Seychelles is the latest tropical hotspot selling a slice of freehold paradise.”
