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.

It was our 25th wedding anniversary and my wife and I wanted to do something special. We chose to come the Enchanted Island resort and we were not disappointed. The villa we stayed in was in excellent condition, very clean and well maintained. We had a lovely view of the beach and enjoyed the private pool as well. Since there are only 10 villas on the island, you have a lot of privacy and the chance to enjoy the surroundings without a crowd like you would have in your typical 5 star resort. The staff was very attentive and looked after our every need. Vanessa and Jean-Luke at the front desk were extremely professional and even arranged for us to have a typical Seychelles meal one evening which was excellently prepared by the Chefs there. They also have an excellent massage therapist, Ju who gave such great treatment that my wife booked a few sessions with her. If you are there, you must schedule a at least 1-2 massage sessions with her, you won't be disappointed. She also is an excellent Yoga instructor and they offer complimentary Yoga classes on Sunday and Wednesday afternoons. The menu they offer has several very good selections, that we enjoyed. The Chefs, the kitchen team and the wait staff were also very professional and attentive. Some of the meals were a bit too spicy for my wife, but they made wonderful adjustments to accommodate her. Special thanks to Chef Annrieth and Benny for doing that. The entire team, to include Sanjit, Bhuwon, Vinod really made us feel at home. We look forward to visiting again. Read less

We had the most incredible honeymoon at JA Enchanted Island Resort in the Seychelles. From start to finish it was 5* luxury. Each member of staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Our villa was stunning and had the most incredible infinity pool overlooking the sea. Our private access to the most stunning white sandy beach was a highlight and quickly became part of our daily routine; each day it became more breathtaking. The location of the island itself is dreamy, like jumping out of an instagram post. The island's beauty attracts tourists but not for long and you truly feel like it is your island and you are the only ones there! We would recommend this beautiful place to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday, for those wanting something to do they have access to paddle boards, kayaks and snorkels all for free which meant you could explore slightly further into sea or just to nip to the next island to visit the giant tortoises! We will definitely be back. It was the most wonderful trip. Read less

We have spent 4 nights there to seat back and relax. We really enjoyed our stay. After reading the different comments on Tripadvisor, one thing came to my mind: what is the definition of Luxury? Of course,here you will not find gold plated taps in your bathroom, silk carpets in your rooms king size beds + a 3 star Michelin restaurant and pretty girls at the bar. For a certain price, not cheap indeed, you will enjoy an isolated private island with only 10 villas with see view , which are hidden in the forest. It is relatively simple and very quite. The bathroom is in open air. The restaurant is a la carte (relatively limited choice), simple but good. The staff is very nice. As a summary, we have spend a very nice stay, far from the atmosphere of the resorts. Enjoy Read less

Our stay at JA Enchanted Island was nothing short of extraordinary. We had a chance to experience both, the sea view villa and the signature owners villa. While both were beautiful, the owners signature villa is on another level. The sunset views from this villa are unbelievable and it comes with a small beach that is very private. We loved the boutique feel of this hotel, it is very charming with a colonial atmosphere. The staff at the hotel is so friendly and helpful. Especially Jean-Luke took amazing care of us! - our honeymoon package included romantic candlelit private dinner, couple massage and a bottle of champagne upon arrival. The restaurant is nice, with a great chef who was ready to accommodate all our wishes and also make new dishes for us. We couldn't choose a better destination for our honeymoon and would happily stay here again for special occasions! Read less
