Desroches Island Resort, Amirante Archipelago

The Desroches Island has been voted into the Forbes Top 10 Remote Destinations in the World. Against, as you can imagine, some pretty heavenly competition.

Giant tortoises roam free across the island, unconcerned by your approach. White – almost pale pink – beaches stretch for miles without a single footprint. The water is a perfect reflection of the sky above, and beneath its crystal surface awaits a multi-coloured world of coral and dazzling fish.

Make Desroches Island part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to the Seychelles and you’ll soon realise why Forbes rate the island so highly as a remote destination. You’ll also come to believe that the word ‘remote’ is synonymous with ‘beautiful’ - you’ll find yourself standing on one of the most breathtakingly gorgeous spots on the planet.

The Desroches Island Resort is pretty special too. It defines itself as an island refuge, the perfect spot for romance, shameless pampering and ultimate relaxation.
