One of the best gifts an engaged couple can give each other is to get married in a tropical dream island fringed with coconut palms and surrounded by turquoise waters. When an idyll like this is combined with the services of a seasoned wedding planner and a tour operator with years of experience in making the travel arrangements, the result is a blissful start to married life.
Where in the World
One of the best places to make this happen is at Desroches Island Seychelles. As island destinations go, Desroches is in a league of its own – a private resort island that is part of the gorgeous Seychelles archipelago in the Indian Ocean. Boasting miles of pristine white sand beaches and an exclusive range of just 20 beach suites – and some 30 villas with butler service – Desroches Island Seychelles is a natural choice.
All flights from UK land on the main Seychelles island of Mahe. Stop in at the complimentary Desroches Lounge at the airport if there’s time. From the airport in Mahe, it’s a short 40 minute flight to Seychelles wedding bliss on Desroches Island. From the moment your plane lands, your prenuptial and honeymoon needs will be catered for by the expert staff.
Your Beachside Home from Home
Beach Suites at Desroches Island Seychelles are amazing – beautifully furnished in a colonial style set in palm groves and surrounded by stunning floral gardens of every tropical hue. Their layout and style help ensure a sense of privacy and seclusion while you enjoy your own veranda, bathe in an outdoor shower, relax in your king size bed or enjoy en-suite dining served up by your personal butler.
If the Beach Suites are amazing, Villa Retreats offer even more luxury and space, with a private plunge pool, central living room area and a modern, fully stocked kitchen. Perfect for engaged couples and honeymooners alike!
Which Wedding Scene to Choose?
