Luxury island eco-resort, Alphonse Island in the Seychelles Outer islands has introduced two new luxury Beach villas to their existing 22 private Beach Bungalows and five Beach Suites. Both Beach Villas are surrounded by tropical scenery and overlook the Indian Ocean and the protected coral reefs.
The new four-bedroom Beach villas have been designed by architect Lisa Rorich, a specialist in luxury island projects in the Seychelles as well as luxury safari camps. The beautiful interiors have been flawlessly created by Andrew Irving and Mario Rodrigues to stylishly blend traditional Creole style with a modern take on island style. Reflecting the resort’s beliefs the villas make use of recycled wooden furniture, local materials and nature-inspired artwork.
Each Beach Villa sleeps up to eight adults and four children and feature four double bedrooms with luxurious island-style en-suite bathrooms and outside shower areas. Large open plan living, and dining areas include a fully equipped kitchen and lead to a sun deck and private plunge pool. A private chef can be arranged to create tailor-made menus for in-villa dining and both villas include their own golf buggy.
The new Beach Villas are perfect for families. With no malaria in the Seychelles, no cars on the island, no poisonous snakes or spiders, predictable weather and experienced staff the secluded Alphonse Island makes an ideal location for a relaxing and memorable family holiday.
