QUESTION: We are a family of 4 and looking to stay in Seychelles. What resort offers the best accommodations for our family?

ANSWER: Le Meridien Fisherman's Cove

Founded in 1943, historic Fisherman's Cove is the Seychelles’' first and most legendary hotel. Over the decades, the resort has gained a reputation for relaxed, understated luxury and friendly, personalized service, providing guests with a peaceful hideaway. Seabirds skim the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, schools of fish flurry just below the surface, and the clear sunlight illuminates the rippling crystal waves. Welcome to the Seychelles, home of the amusingly shaped lovenut, the largest seabird colony in the world, and over one thousand species of fish. Nestled in the heart of paradise on the southern tip of Beau Vallon, Le Meridien Fisherman’s Cove features sweeping thatched roofs and local granite. The open-air lobby, which affords breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean, stands above a stylish bar and library.
