Ancient Times

Did you know that water was once considered to have therapeutic and medicinal properties?

  • Rome - a cultural city, this nation has prioritised baths as a vital part of their traditional life - people find relaxation and connection in a calming and soothing setting.
  • China – using water as an element to produce harmony and balance within the physique, the Chinese also use it as part of their traditional medicine.

Rivers have been perceived as holy places because water represents revival, divine cleansing and recovery.

The Blue Mind

Wallace J. Nichols, also known as the “Keeper of the Sea”, is one of the best marine biologists in the world. He says that each one of us has a “blue mind” - a mildly reflective state categorised by calm, serenity and harmony encapsulated in an overall feeling of happiness and gratification with life at that instant. Did you know that this “blue mind” can be triggered by the Ocean?


Engaged in the Water

The calm ocean waters always seem so inviting; engaging us in a slightly reflective state of tranquillity and as if by magic, submerging us in total serenity. Water benefits the mind and body in so many ways:

  • Reduced stress levels
  • A release from slight nervousness, discomfort and despair
  • Better psychological clarity and attention
  • Enriched quality of sleep

Romantic Moments Take Place by the Water

For that perfect moment in time, an idyllic ocean setting motivates our feelings of compassion. It’s no accident that life’s most romantic episodes feature a beautiful ocean setting — marriages and honeymoons are positively celestial in a waterfront location.

Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa is located on Beau Vallon beach and features the largest swimming pool in Seychelles. Enjoying magnificent vistas over the spellbinding Indian Ocean, what better place to temper those everyday tensions?
