Festive season
02 October 2023

When spent in a private paradise under cloudless skies with birds serenading each morning and stars bringing sparkle to every evening, the festive season of love and merriment becomes even more extraordinary. At Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island, a Festive Program of spellbinding seasonal activities ignites the imagination and fills the soul. From December 16, 2023 to January 7, 2024, guests are invited to unwrap unforgettable dining, family, and wellness experiences in a sensational atmosphere of romance and luxury.

“Welcoming guests to our intimate island paradise at this special time of year is a privilege, and our team is committed to making every stay as rewarding and remarkable as our guests deserve,” says Budi Widodo, Resort Manager. “By creating a range of festive experiences to suit every age, preference, and personality, we plan to infuse each stay with a sense of joy and celebration befitting the occasion. From pampering to toes in sand soirees and island adventures, we invite every visitor to embrace the possibilities of this magical season and leave with memories to last a lifetime.”

Festive Highlight and Dining

Festivities begin on December 16, with Champagne, canapés and carols at a glittering Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Daily sundowners herald the arrival of the stars each day while Christmas Eve brings a choice of evening banquets. Sit down to a five-course feast of roasted turkey, smoked salmon, and poached lobster with a bottle of Champagne at The Lighthouse, or soak up the atmosphere of a sumptuous barbecue buffet at Claudine. Christmas Day at The Lighthouse serves a “lazy lunch” of fresh seafood and sizzling meats prepared at live cooking stations alongside customisable Mimosas from the bar. On December 29 and January 3, ocean’s edge barefoot barbecues with live music keep the festivities flowing between the landmark days. New Year’s Eve starts with a six-course culinary voyage at The Lighthouse, or a taste tour of global cuisines at Claudine before the island’s private runway hosts the biggest party of the year and the countdown to 2024. January 1 sees the new year started right with an indulgent poolside brunch.

Island Experiences

Archipelago adventures don’t stop during the festive season and each guest still enjoys full access to an array of island experiences. Learn to make cocktails and cook traditional creole recipes, or simply sample Seychellois flavours at a tasting of local rums. Feed a leafy festive lunch to the Resort’s oldest residents after a sunny day cycle to the Tortoise Sanctuary. Discover the secrets of the underwater world, explore 14 kilometres (8.7 miles) of pristine beaches, or contemplate the night sky by stargazing with the Resort astronomer. Find a little calm with guided sunrise and sunset yoga in the island’s tranquil gardens. Fishing, and cruising are all available during daylight hours, as are complimentary watersports including paddle-boarding, kayaking and snorkelling and sports from tennis and football to petanque and trail running. With a full choice of fitness classes and personal training sessions, working up an appetite between celebratory feasts is easy.

Kids For All Seasons

Little ones embrace wonder with their whole hearts and there’ll be no shortage of inspiring opportunities for kids and teens during this festive season and magical time of year. Supervised by the charismatic Kids For All Seasons team, younger guests will enjoy expressing their creativity through garland making, cookie decorating, card and wreath designing, and snowman building. Christmas-themed games include wrapping races, marshmallow tossing, bingo, Tic-Tac-Toe, Guess Who, and snowman bowling.

After building up to the big day by helping out in Santa’s workshop and searching for treasures on a Christmas Eve scavenger hunt, kids will meet the star of the show himself when Santa makes his arrival on Christmas morning. When the party’s over and the New Year begins, a cosy afternoon of festive movies and popcorn is the perfect way to keep the spirit of the season alive for a few more blissful days.
