Desroches Island, Seychelles
Spectacular island surroundings
Four Seasons Desroches Island, Seychelles, offers the perfect combination of luxurious accommodation, stunning surroundings and counts fishing amongst its activities. Guests can experience fly fishing for giant trevally, bluefin trevally, bonefish, sailfish, yellowfin tuna and more.
Excellent offshore angling in the Seychelles
One of the rare Seychelles atolls with excellent bluewater fishing within sight of the island, Desroches offers a fabulous combination of accommodation, activities and the best bluewater fishing in the Indian Ocean. What makes this area so rich in fish stock is the 1,300m Amirantes Trench, which separates the atolls of Desroches, Poive and St Josephs and brings a constant rich flow of current.
Desroches’ offshore structure features a 38km ring of sunken coral atoll, all surrounded by a sheer drop-off, teeming with both pelagic and reef fish.
Luxury island style with modern comforts
Four Seasons Desroches is the only accommodation on the island and offers a mixture of bungalows, villas, suites and residences. All with private pool and beach access, each just yards from the beach and decorated with a subtle mix of island style and modern comfort.
The resort facilities are completed with a large beachside pool, two restaurants, a deli and a bar. There is an organic spa with five treatment suites, including one for couples, and a yoga pavilion. During a stay on the island, guests can swim, snorkel, deep sea and fly fish, relax on a sunset cruise and scuba divers can explore the exciting fringing coral reef and wall known as the ‘Desroches drop’. Tennis, kayaks, sailing and windsurfing are also available. Like all of the outer atolls, you make your way around the island by bicycle.
