Nature walks with the resident conservationists are a highly inspiring and encouraging journey into the island's ecosystem that gives guests a deeper understanding of the role conservation plays in island life. There's also the opportunity to assist in some of their field work - searching for tiny sea turtle hatchlings or checking nest boxes for eggs or chicks.

A warm welcome with a freshly infused tea awaits guests in this haven of relaxation for mind, body and soul.


Getting There

Warm but slightly wet, December to March is one of the Seychelles' high seasons, while June to September offers cooler, dryer weather although winds can stir the waves and wash seaweed onto unprotected beaches. April, May, October and November, normally calm and windless, are perfect for those looking to escape the high-season crowds. However, the temperature usually remains above 25°C all year.
