Why book an all inclusive holiday in the Seychelles?
The Seychelles is one of those destinations that is ideally suited to all inclusive holidays, because there are so many excellent resorts dotted across the various islands. There is accommodation to cater for all kinds of travellers too, from families to couples, singles and everyone from every age group.
One of the main reasons to book an all inclusive holiday in the Seychelles is to have unlimited and complimentary access to the excellent facilities the hotels boast, from water sports equipment and spas to multiple restaurants and bars.
But if you were ever to get bored of the resort's onsite entertainment and dining options, staff at the resorts in the Seychelles will also be happy to help you arrange tours to other parts of the archipelago, so you don't have to restrict yourself to exploring a single island during your getaway. And, with an all inclusive holiday, instead of using your pocket cash for meals and water sports (which all comes included) you could be putting it towards excursions and scuba diving.
Facilities to look forward to at Seychelles' all inclusive resorts
If you're planning to go all inclusive in the Seychelles, you really should choose one of the best resorts to make the most of all that this destination has to offer. The top hotels have multiple pools, beautiful beachside locations, several restaurants and plenty more besides, so you won't be short of things to do during your holiday.
Of course, by booking an all inclusive break, you can rest safe in the knowledge that everything has been paid for upfront, and that all your needs will be met for the entirety of your getaway. So, you can lounge by the pool and sip cocktails, stroll along the sandy shores or borrow a kayak to explore some of the nearby coastline - it's entirely up to you.
Among the best reasons to book an all inclusive holiday in the Seychelles is to take advantage of the water sports facilities available at your hotel - these can range from kayaks and snorkelling equipment you can borrow, to scuba diving schools where you can learn to explore beneath the waves, get a certification or use the one you already have for amazing underwater expeditions.
All inclusive resorts are also a good option in the Seychelles because, depending on the hotel you choose, there will be few other restaurants or bars in close proximity. As a matter of fact there are many resorts that have a whole island to themselves – which means no other form of civilisation in the island is to be found. Bear this in mind when you're booking your trip if you want to avoid booking one island resort or if on the contrary, you want the seclusion of having an island to yourself.
Totally unwind in the Seychelles
One of the most wonderful things about all inclusive holidays - in the Seychelles or elsewhere - is that you'll have nothing to worry about once you board your flight. Your transfer from the airport, meals, drinks, activities and, in some cases, excursions will all be part of the package.
This means you can really relax on your holiday without having to concern yourself with how much things cost, as you've paid for everything upfront. The only thing you may need to allow extra cash for is spa treatments and scuba diving, as these won't necessarily be included in your package.
To truly unwind and relax you won't need to go far or do much - simply stroll down to the beach and soak up the sight of the turquoise ocean lapping the white sands, listen to the breeze rustling the palm leaves and enjoy the feeling of the sun gently warming your skin - it really is paradise on earth.
Excursions in the Seychelles
While you might struggle to tear yourself away from the delights of your resort, it would be a shame not to explore some of the Seychelles' other beautiful islands, especially when you may have some extra pocket money to spend after having paid the all inclusive package. If you're based on Mahe, don't miss the chance to visit Praslin, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Vallee de Mai National Park.
Another reserve worth visiting is the St Anne Marine National Park, where you can see some of the most pristine reefs in the Seychelles, either by snorkelling or scuba diving. La Digue, Curieuse Island and Silhouette Island are just a few of the other isles you can discover - ask at your hotel about booking a cruise or tour to some of these spots during your holiday.
Silhouette Island in particular is worth exploring because of its unspoilt beauty and total seclusion. There are five granite peaks in its centre, while its shores are dotted with pretty coves and sweeping bays. The waters surrounding Silhouette are part of a protected marine reserve too, so this is a wonderful place for snorkelling.
