On an AVANI holiday in the Seychelles you can take it easy, share fun activities in the sun, try something new or go on an adventure.
Top up your tan, refresh in the pool and go with the flow in a yoga class. Enjoy traditional island cooking, dance, craft and language classes, or action packed days of culture and nature trips.
Go with the flow at the 25-metre outdoor pool, where you can refresh with a quick dip or just relax in the sun.
Feel the burn with an invigorating workout in the fitness centre, then reward tired muscles in the steam room.
Love tennis? Challenge your friends and family on our fully equipped tennis court or brush up on your game with a private lesson, all equipment included. Call before booking the court and our guest relations agent will take care of everything.
Breathe deeply, stretch and recharge. Our yoga instructor guides you through a series of asanas to relax and revive your body and mind. Classes available select days, or get undivided attention by pre-booking a private lesson.
Diving & Snorkelling
Take the plunge and discover the underwater world of the Seychelles. No PADI certificate? No problem. Our certified instructors can help. Want to stay closer to the surface? Snag some snorkeling gear and peer into life under the sea. Contact the concierge for prices and reservations.
Catch a wave and learn something new. Our instructors can teach you to surf the Seychelles’ waters.
Mangrove & Vacoa Nature Trail Discovery
Get up close with marshland animals and mangrove trees on the Mangrove & Vacoa Trail. Hike towards beach, then double back inland towards the Dauban River and see the pandanus or screw pines—vacoa in the local language—which the trail is named after.
Fallen in love with Seychelles’ cuisine? Bring a taste of island life home by learning to whip up Creole or Thai dishes in one of our cooking classes. Start with a visit to the market: Pick the freshest fare and meet local farmers. Then head back to the hotel for a refreshing snack, and let the cooking fun begin!
Discovery of Victoria (Half Day)
Explore the nooks and crannies of one of world’s smallest capitals cities. Start by stopping to smell the roses in Victoria’s Botanical Garden, with five acres of tropical gardens filled with the island’s most exotic plants. Then pick up the pace at the city centre: Prowl the local market, take in the national museum and check out ‘Little Ben’, the famous clock tower.
Mahé – Discovery of Wild South
Pack in the fun on this full day tour of the south of Mahé. Engage your inner scientist at the Biodiversity Centre, and get your culture fix watching artisans at Pineapple Studios. Along the way, take in spectacular scenery. After lunch, end the day with a hot tour and a stiff drink at the Takamaka rum distillery.
Hiking on Mahé
Lace up those hiking shoes and meet the wildlife of Mahé. Get an up-close look at exotic island vegetation on a trek designed just for you.
West Coast of Mahé, Praslin & La Digue (Full Day)
Get away to our favourite islands to find hidden tropical treasures. A stroll through Valley de Mai—“Garden of Eden”—is like travelling back in time, but each isle has its own secrets to tease out.
Cruise around Mahé (Full Day)
Hop on board at Anse La Mouche beach and set sail to the islands on Mahé’s west coast. Plunge in for a swim and snorkel at maritime parks and weave through the flora and fauna of Ile Moyenne. Along the way, savour a succulent Creole BBQ.
Snorkelling at Saint Anne and the Bay Ternay Marine Park (Full Day)
No need to dive deep for underwater fun. Snorkeling St Anne Marine Park is one of the best ways to explore beneath the sea. Afterwards, munch your lunch—traditional Creole BBQ—as we cruise Moyenne Island, and soak up the scene before hopping back in the water at Bay Ternay Marine Park.
Cast off at Anse La Mouche and cruise Mahé’s west coast as the sun slips into the sea. Revel in a sunset snorkel at Bay Ternay Marine Park (weather permitting), then sip champagne as we sail to Anse Soleil beach and the small islands of Ile Souris, Ile Aux Vache, Ile Therese and Conception Island.
Glass Bottom Boat (Half or Full Day)
Go below to soak up the scenery on a glass bottom boat, where colourful coral and rainbow fish steal the show. Care to join them? Hop in for a snorkel, or slip to the white sand beaches on the coast. Enjoy an island feast before sailing back to reality.
Big Game Fishing Trip (Half or Full day and Night Fishing)
Cast your line into crystal clear water and get ready for the catch. Barracuda, shark, mackerel, sailfish, snapper, grouper… it’s all here. Snagged a big one? We can dock at the nearest island and BBQ it up, Creole style, while you explore the island.
