Carved into a hillside and surrounded by a marine nature reserve, Cerf Island Resort is the go-to getaway spot when the need calls for seclusion, spectacular surroundings and unsurpassed services. Located in Seychelles, an archipelago consisting of more than 100 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean northeast of Madagascar, the resort is an oasis and a place to reenergize your soul. Situated at the entrance to Sainte Anne National Marine Park, guests can choose from one of 24 private villas, all of which strike a perfect balance for enjoying the tropical surroundings without relinquishing any modern amenities. The Hillside Villas are flanked with four-poster beds, sprawling al fresco bathrooms with tandem tubs, and sliding doors that open onto spacious balconies. The Hideaway Villas boast private sun gardens and a roomier floor plan, while the timbered Tortoise Suites offer an expansive master bedroom and bath, lounge and living room.
