Enchanted Island Resort

Seychelles, Indian Ocean

The hotel

If there’s even the slightest bit of ‘Robinson Crusoe’ in you, it’s sure to come out at the romantic JA Enchanted Island Resort. But this is doing ‘castaway’ like an A-lister. Home to a mere ten luxurious villas, this little private island sits in Sainte Anne National Marine Park. Your exclusive villa has a charming creole design and features a private infinity pool, outdoor bathroom, deck and gazebo, and a private walkway down to the beach. And, although you may not have a ‘Man Friday’, you do have a butler at your service to put loungers on the beach for you, bring you a refreshing drink or arrange a kayak for you. There’s a restaurant by the hotel’s clifftop pool where the chef's on hand to chat about the delectable local dishes, or you could opt for private dining on your villa’s terrace. And, if that’s not enough extravagance, the resort's spa offers more in its oceanfront treatment pavilions. This island hideaway is the ultimate in privacy and relaxation for couples.

I would highly recommend it for a relaxing short stay. The eight villas are luxurious and that’s all in the tiny island. If you are looking for pure relax and luxury this is ideal. The villas are huge with an external bath tub and shower, infirmity pool, access to private beach. Food is also delicious. Top

Very small island with a fiew villas and only one restaurant and not enough activities to do. The sandy beach is small and a lot of tourist boats come to visit and use the beach. The water is not really clean and the sand area is small. (There are much more beautiful beaches and places elsewhere in Seychelles). To leave the small island there is one boat to leave in the morning and come back in the afternoon. Otherwise, you have to pay each time to leave the island. We were stung everywhere by mosquitoes and other insects. A fiew member of the staff is weird and the atmosphere and the atmosphere were strange. Hopefully we have visited other places and hotel in Seychelles. The positive point was the private swiming pool. The wifi was very very slow. In a fiew words i was very disappointed about my vacation in this hotel. We paid a lot of money for the booking and on the island, almost everything is paying. Very disappointed Read less

What makes the JA Enchanted Island so special, besides the stunning accommodation, food and location is the wonderful people who look after you. We were pampered from the airport pickup until we checked in for our flight home. Nothing was too much problem in addition to extreme courtesy and respect. Beautiful clear seas in the Marine Park and each Villa has an infinity pool. Do take mosquito repellent. No location can be this lush and beautiful without mosquitos.JA do spray once a week though. We had a wonderful two weeks here. Read less

JA was a wonderful experience — the views were amazing and something we will never forget. We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful food, service and staff. Ju in the spa provided great and relaxing treatments, in addition to her yoga classes! We recommend JA if you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing time with picture perfect views of the beach.
