Petite Anse Bay is the location for the exclusive Four Seasons Private Residences Seychelles and Four Seasons Resort Seychelles, set on the south west coast of Mahe. The 27 freehold Private Residences occupy the bay’s two headlands, while the beachside area is devoted to the Resort and Spa. Each of the Private Residences enjoys their own panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.
Set in a 70 hectare development of gently undulating landscape with granite peaks and luscious greenery, the Private Residences offer the rarest of opportunities to own a luxurious villa in one of the last truly unspoilt paradises on earth. Great care has been taken to ensure that the properties harmonise with their surroundings rather than dominating the site. Sympathetic design ensures every villa is completely unique – it is shaped, orientated and influenced by the contours of the granite hillside.
Built on land plots ranging in size from approximately 0.6 to 2.0 hectares (1.5 to 5.0 acres), the mix of three, four, five and six bedroom villas embrace nature in their design. Inspired by the island’s colonial architecture, yet given a distinctive modern edge, the tropical essence of the island is reflected in every detail – soothing earth hues, timber floorings, wood cladding and a layout that captures natural light and ocean breezes.
To maximise the drama of the sloping sites, internationally acclaimed architect Cheong Yew Kuan has designed villas that consist of a series of living spaces cascading over different levels. The upper levels, designed for al fresco living, are open to the gentle cooling sea breezes of the ocean and provide a stunning vista. The enclosed area of the lower level opens to the spacious deck framing an infinity pool. The bedroom suites are remote from the main living area and from each other – for complete privacy.
