Mother's Day treat… how about a trip to Seychelles?

Date Posted: 28/02/2017

If there’s one person that is truly worth pulling out all the stops for, your mum surely deserves to be rewarded for her love and dedication. Imagine her face when you tell her you’ve decided to whisk her away to the Seychelles for a relaxing Mother’s Day treat… if you weren’t her favourite offspring before, you soon will be!

A jewel in the Indian Ocean crown, Mahé is the largest island in the Seychelles archipelago. With satisfying temperatures that average at around 27°C, there’s no better way to chase away those cold winter blues. So, what are you waiting for? We’ve got the fun and the sun; you just need to bring Mum.

Blessed with extensive views that reach out over the tranquil turquoise waters, Savoy Seychelles takes centre stage on the beautiful Beau Vallon beach. Surrounded by lush green mountains that are buzzing with tropical brilliance; what can I say…? Mum will just love it. Where perfect relaxation is assured, our lavish 5 star Seychelles hotel facilities enjoy lashings of luxury and plenty of other trimmings besides.

Treat her to a pampering session in our comprehensive spa facilities, where natural ingredients that are indigenous to Seychelles are combined with time-honoured techniques and traditions to assure the most fulfilling spa experience ever… she’ll feel like a new woman!

Take her on a day trip to the capital, Victoria, where you can spend some quality time together in the Botanical Gardens that were established more than a century ago. You may never have heard of Sir Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke but as the islands governor in the post-war years, he gave his name to the main fruit and fish market… and it's still very popular with visitors today. You should definitely take a moment to enjoy the stunning Bicentennial Monument that has three gracefully extended pairs of white wings which represent the origins of the islands. Artists have often been inspired by the beauty of this island paradise and a cultural masterpiece would surely make the perfect keepsake.

One thing Mahé certainly doesn’t lack and that is a very fine selection of beaches. Take a trip to Port Launay Marine National Park, where the glorious horseshoe of white glistening sands beckons. Enjoy an excursion in a glass bottom boat and get up close and personal with a colour explosion of marine life. A watchword in eco-tourism, the short boat trip to Cousin Island Special Reserve will introduce you to a magical world of lizards and seabirds. You will also find some magnificent specimens of Seychelles flora.

Savoy Resort and Spa specialises in a cultural extravaganza of fine dining and irresistible cuisine. With something for every palate, Mum can create her own seafood platter in our A la Carte restaurant - Pescado is awash with culinary expertise! For a truly gastronomical experience, let her taste Indian Gourmet brilliance at its best with the much coveted Mahek dining experience. Witness the majestic sunset from the Ocean Deck Pub, where you and Mum can toast the occasion with our selection of cocktails and wines… by the way, it’s also the only place on the island where you can enjoy draft beer!

Mums do so much for us and they really should be reminded how very special and dear they are. For the ultimate Mother’s Day experience to top all Mother’s Day experiences… let her enjoy the 5 star event of her life at Savoy Resort and Spa.
