Four Seasons Seychelles appointment

Sphere Estates appointed as the exclusive UK sales agent for the Four Seasons Private Residences in the Seychelles.

The Seychelles are 115 gorgeous coral and granite islands of legendary beauty in the western Indian Ocean. The Four Seasons Private Residences are situated on two spectacular headlands overlooking the beautiful Petite Anse Bay on the south west coast of Mahé, the largest and main island.

There are 27 exquisite freehold private residences, nine of which remain for sale. Each is unique and never to be repeated and has panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.  The Residences are set in a 70 hectare development (172 acres) with an undulating landscape of granite peaks and tropical greenery. There is a choice of three to six bedroom villas available on plots ranging in size from 6,082 sqm to 14,966 sqm (1.5 acres to 3.7 acres). 

Robert Green, managing director, Sphere Estates said: "We are delighted to be able to offer this exclusive opportunity to buy a home in one of the world's most spectacular locations. These Four Seasons branded residences offer comfort and privacy and we believe that our reputation, service and global connections make us the perfect partner."

Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Cheong Yew Kuan, the villas reflect the tropical ambiance of the island. Each is constructed on stilts with wooden walkways connecting the separate living and sleeping pavilions for maximum privacy. Large teak sun decks frame impressive infinity swimming pools allowing owners to fully enjoy the breathtaking ocean views.

All villas come fully furnished to Four Seasons standards courtesy of Hirsch Bedner Associates, a worldwide leader in interior design. Owners can choose from two furnishing options - French Chic or British Contemporary. Interiors feature hand -hewn wide plank teak flooring in the living areas. Walls in rugged local granite contrast with European polished marble. Kitchens feature Poggenpohl units with integrated Miele appliances plus treats like a Viking Wok burner and a Miele wine cooler. Master bedrooms feature sunken baths, steam showers and an outdoor shower.

Owners enjoy substantial benefits including no capital gains tax, a low fee structure of 5% stamp duty and 1.5% sanction processing fee - payable on the unfurnished building value - plus the freedom to transfer sales proceeds in full. Owners can also take advantage of a 5 year renewable resident's permit which allows unlimited stays on the island for up to 6 family members or co- owners, dependent on the villa ownership structure adopted. 

The Four Seasons Rental Programme is available to owners wishing to rent their property when they are not in residence.

Owners can also enjoy all the facilities of the exclusive five star Four Seasons Resort Seychelles including concierge services, the hilltop spa, fitness facilities and a choice of restaurants as well as the spectacular views of Petite Anse Bay which is without doubt the best beach on the island. Staff can arrange for snorkelling or diving trips, boat or helicopter charters.

The international airport in Victoria, the capital of Mahé, is 30 minutes from Petite Anse. There are regular direct flights from the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Four Seasons Private Residences Seychelles are jointly developed by Hotel Properties Limited (HPL) and Albwardy Investment, and managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, undeniably the world's leading luxury hotel and resort operator.
