A limited opportunity to own a Four Seasons branded private beach retreat in the Seychelles, perfectly positioned on unblemished, north-west facing beaches and surrounded by dense green foliage; the Private Beach Retreats offer a sensuous remote island hideaway.
Tastefully furnished, with all luxurious amenities, these exclusive Retreats offer state-of-the-art fitted kitchens, wireless internet and telephones contrasting with lazy salas and indigenous gardens to provide complete privacy, comfort and relaxation.
The Retreats (five bedroomed villas) create a unique experience with generosity in design and exquisite attention to detail, yet at the same time creating a relaxed and inviting ‘home-from-home’ atmosphere, whilst retaining a natural, laid-back island charm. Interiors are created from natural materials, cool, easy-going, soft shades – glorious woods, fabrics and rattan. There are currently two still available to purchase.
The secluded Retreats are situated on around 5,000 sqm plots with approximately 56 metres of beach frontage and fabulous sea views. The building area including decking and pools is c. 940 sqm. Each Retreat boasts a large pool facing the Indian Ocean, and two of the five bedrooms have their own secluded plunge pools set in a private lush garden.
The nearby hotel offers in-residence dining and private chefs for more intimate entertaining. Meals can also be enjoyed at the various exotic dining locations at the hotel and around the island. A butler can be arranged to attend to your needs in the Retreat, with laundry and full housekeeping service, leaving you time only to relax and unwind.
The Private Beach Retreats are a result of extensive research undertaken on similar projects world-wide, and have been designed to optimise comfort and provide rental income to owners that wish to participate in the optional rental scheme. The 5-star on-site management provides global marketing of the island properties and management of all bookings and guest stays, complete with full maintenance and housekeeping to the highest standards to protect your investment and generate the best possible yields.
The modular design of the Retreat optimises rental desirability and diversity for hotel guests, while maintaining an environmentally friendly, homely island hideaway for owners. Each Retreat is designed to be a five bedroom home which ‘converts’ into self-contained private hotel suites when the owner is not in residence. With this innovative design and by joining the rental pool, your Private Beach Retreat comes FREE OF LEVIES, in terms of the rental pool formula, making this a unique investment opportunity.
Units will be fully-furnished in tasteful style with all luxurious amenities. Built in seating, state-of-the-art ﬁtted kitchens and wireless internet contrast with lazy ﬂoating salas in the sea breeze and indigenous gardens to provide complete privacy, comfort and relaxation.
Along with the luxurious turn-key furnishings, 8 bicycles and 6 kayaks (3 double and 3 single) per Retreat complete the package. Furniture and ﬁttings are included in the total purchase price.
Desroches offers exclusivity and privacy that only a remote private island can provide, along with experienced, discreet service. The island is completely private; one of very few in the world being developed by a single developer and operator, and brings new benchmarks for luxury and exclusivity to the Seychelles, to rival those anywhere in the world. Desroches has been listed as one of the ‘Top 10 Remote Hotels in the World’ by Forbes.
All ownership documentation has been prepared by our legal team to ensure that purchasers have total security of long term lease hold ownership.
Linked to the infrastructure of the Seychelles capital of Mahé with daily scheduled flights, Desroches Island is also accessible by private charter flights, or a leisurely day’s sail for those who prefer to take time. Mahé itself is well connected to Africa, Middle East, Europe and Asia.
Desroches boasts one of the world’s healthiest, malaria-free climates. Strewn with coconut trees, the island has 14km of immaculate deserted beaches, allowing blissful peace and tranquillity. Miles of soft, sandy beaches and crystal-clear, blue waters make Desroches a refuge for romance, adventure, and an exceptional family or couples destination for diving, snorkelling, fishing, water sport and simply relaxing in the unparalleled beauty and serenity of nature.
Desroches Island forms part of the Amirantes Archipelago, regarded as some of the most pristine and mystique in the world – gems passionately protected by the Government where only sustainable development under one operator per island is permitted under exceptional circumstances.
Desroches, as the gateway to the outer and Amirantes Islands, adjoins a number of virgin islands, which add to the unique travel adventures that can be enjoyed. The developers continue to explore exciting new activities with Desroches as the hub.
Desroches offers a range of experiences, including quiet picnics on the beach, sundown cocktails with friends, encounters with captivating marine life and pampering spa treatments; all in picture-perfect surrounds that enhance every glorious sensation. Set your soul free on a warm ocean breeze to float over an azure turquoise sea.
