Everyone knows just how much children love the adventure. At Sainte Anne Island, a resort located on a private island at the heart of the Seychelles, there are many things to explore, whether on land or in the crystal-clear water. Plus, the whole archipelago is tinged with an aura of pirates and hidden treasures, making a holiday there even more attractive in the eyes of younger ones.
Sainte Anne Island is a villa-only resort. This is ideal for families as it ensures privacy. Any family will feel right at home and their holiday home will be infused with tropical charm and luxury. Those who look for the ultimate island experience will book a villa with private pool.
One of the other advantages of booking a holiday at Sainte Anne Island is that the resort also offers an optional all-inclusive package. All is included from the moment guests set foot on the island, right up to their departure. This is fantastic news for parents travelling with large families or with teenagers who often have a healthy appetite.
There are many things to do and see at Sainte Anne. Families can explore the superb marine park with their snorkeling gear or with the see-through kayaks...Unless they choose to take a trip onboard the glass-bottom boat. The young will discover an oversized aquarium and the more courageous may even be tempted to feed the fish!
The resort covers extensive grounds that wait to be explored, on foot or with a bike. There are also special treks departing from the sports and leisure centre according to a set programme.
Like all Beachcomber hotels in Mauritius, Sainte Anne Island also has a lovely kids club housed in a creole-style villa near all main facilities. The friendly staff will look after the children and organize many games and activities.
Reserved for kids aged 3 to 12, Sainte Anne's kids club is located close to the reception, at the heart of the hotel.
In keeping with the hotel's architecture that blends harmoniously with the tropical environment, it evokes a traditional Creole house.
The interior features a large room where children may play with the wide range of toys available.
The kids club has its own private garden but most activities take place outdoors.
In tune with the environment, activities generally revolve around nature, whether on the island itself or in the waters which teem with sea life. Children also get to visit Moyenne Island, a true nature's sanctuary. What better place for kids to learn about nature than the Seychelles?
The attentive and caring team at the kids club keeps children entertained and safe during their stay at Sainte Anne.
