The truly idyllic island of Mahe is part of the Seychelles, an archipelago about 900 miles east of Tanzania's coast. It is may be the largest and most developed of the Seychelles' 115 islands, but it is still equally tranquil, with each turn revealing another postcard-perfect vista. No better word than paradise can be used to describe the pristine, palm-laced white sand beaches that are gently lapped by crystal clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Exotic lush vegetation and delicate blooms cling to the sides of towering granite peaks in the center of the island that descend quickly into the porcelain-sanded beaches.There's more to this island than the perfect beaches to lounge on though--visitors can explore the jungles on hiking trails, or dip under the ocean's surface to marvel at the hidden gems the coral reefs harbor.

Luxury is synonymous with the gorgeous resorts that are sprinkled along the coastlines of Mahe. Whether set on the beachfront, surrounded by the delicate fronds of palm trees swaying in the wind or nestled into the granite cliffs amid the flourishing jungle, there will be stunning vistas, service and quality that epitomize modern opulence and secluded tranquility.
