Beachfront Villa on 1 of Seychelles' best beaches - 15 steps from quasi-private beach; 4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms + On-site villa manager + 2 full time housekeepers exclusively dedicated to Beach House. Fully air conditioned. 40+ ***** ratings elsewhere.
The Beach Villa is beachfront, i.e. directly on one of Seychelles' best beaches (Anse Forbans) which is a quasi-private beach. We are a family run establishment and are proudly staffed with all Seychellois including: onsite Villa Manager (with hotel degree from the UK) and 2 housekeepers (full time exclusively dedicated to the Beach House) with 35 years experience. Whether you are a group of 2 or 12, you will be well attended and taken care of.
Our Beach Villa is nestled in a private enclave with only one other villa and thus benefits from almost 100 meters of quasi-private beachfront. Furthermore the Anse Forbans beach is over 400 meters long and its sister beach (connected at low tide) is over 800 meters long. The Beach Villa sits off the main road via a private access road and is further buffered by high walls and with two locked access gates for private access to the beach. The Beach Villa has a lush tropical garden and is private, secluded and safe for small children and families. In fact, we are probably the most family friendly establishment in the islands and our family / kids amenities offered are unrivalled by most 5 star hotels.
We offer an authentic Kreole experience - our traditional creole style Beach House is nestled in a tropical garden and on a quasi private beach of Anse Forbans. In fact, we have the best placement (in comparison to the 4 star Hotel down the beach — not visible from our beach side due to the topography) on Anse Forbans Beach. Anse Forbans beach has a corral reef and many of our guests enjoy snorkeling just a few meters off the beach.
Anse Forbans is a worlds away from Seychelles’ version of Dubai-esque artificially reclaimed islands which have decimated the surrounding corals and are enveloped with sparse artificial beaches and crammed with cookie cutter apartments in tight rows like a London suburb. Anse Forbans is relatively undeveloped and not only does Anse Forbans feature one of the best beaches in the Seychelles, we have many of other top beaches just minutes away…..plus Anse Marie Louise and Anse Parnel which are both accessible on foot.
Other fantastic beaches like Anse Intendence, Petite Anse, Fairlyland are less than 10 minutes away. Note our villa is beachfront, there is no road in front of our Beach Villa and there is no long walk or taxis to get to the Beach. you will fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean just meters away and wake up to step through a lush private tropical garden to dip your toes in the immaculate Anse Forbans bay.
