Sea Monkey


Primate perfection


Seychelles shore



On the northern reaches of Mahé Island, Sea Monkey villa is a unique spot in the Seychelles, giving guests their own breezy, beach-side home, but with all the services of a hotel – as arranged by the obliging villa manager who’ll help map out your stay. The villa is built in a traditional local style, but thoroughly modern at the same time: chic wooden floors, beamed ceilings and artfully arranged lamps, frames and soft furnishings. It’s like your own home but better – this one has a beach a short swim away, panoramic ocean views and windows for walls.
