Take a moment to contemplate pink granite rocks and azure water gaining ground on a white sand beach. Now consider what cocktail you'd prefer in your hand - a Daiquiri or a Mojito? Decided? Good. You're beginning to grasp the experience waiting for you at Le Chateau de Feuilles. Add lush palm trees, birds of paradise and an inarguable elegance to that vision and you'll understand why Le Chateau de Feuilles has shimmied past other tropical destinations to earn its place within the coveted Relais & Châteaux portfolio.
Set on Praslin Island in the centre of the Seychelles archipelago, the hotel lays claim to a private island - Grande Soeur - which is reserved for guests' exclusive use during the weekends. A mere 30 minutes from where you'll be based, Grande Soeur is paradise discovered. Spend your day snorkeling, trekking, exploring the coral reef and moiseying up to the ten tortoises that roam the 84ha eden.
Exclusivity is paramount to your stay at Le Chateau de Feuilles, with only 9 rooms available – quality and attentiveness is assured. The use of natural materials together with vistas of the Indian Ocean encourage relaxation and harmony. The overall affect is a profound sense of serenity - a space to call your own. When you're done taking in idyllic sea from your bedroom, there is much to be tasted and savoured. Château de Feuilles celebrates its fertile location with an organic garden from which they source their seasonal produce. The ocean is also called on to provide a bounty of fish which is paired with exquisite flavours.
