Overview

luxury accommodation, pools, beaches and Eden Plaza, the newly opened shopping centre that has everything from boutiques, restaurants and convenience store for your day to day grocery shopping.

Getting around

Eden Island Marina is a self contained community with all amenities close by and car and boat rentals available. Getting around in the resort is easy as it is a motor free vehicle zone and only buggies are allowed as a mode of transport on the island. For exploring Mahé, I would suggest that you rent a car as public transport is not very reliable. The rented cars are parked for free on the island in a garage.

About Judith Whittaker

Hello,

I have had experience in the property market for over 20 years. I live in Notting Hill, W. London and come from Cambridge. I am retired graphic designer and artist and have worked in the USA for 15 years.

Judith Whittaker purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Judith Whittaker chose Seychelles

3% south of the equator, the majestic Seychelles of the equator seascapes offers some of the highest luxury experiences. My 210m², 3 bed apartment is located on Eden Island - this beautiful 5* development is one of the most exclusive internationally awarded new developments in the area. This apartment is popular because of its location, conveniently within walking distance of all amenities and beaches. Eden Island’s central location makes it the best place to stay for anyone who wants to explore, visit or relax while witnessing the wonders of the Seychelles islands. 
The exclusive Eden Island resort is located just near Mahé and is home to a few number of opulent villas & luxurious maisons. The development also boasts a full-service, deep-water marina with private moorings for each residence in the resort. The Island is also well equipped with secluded beaches, restaurants, bars, swimming pools, a gymnasium, tennis courts, boat and car hire, child-friendly play areas and a world-class shopping centre

What makes this apartment unique

Developed with a sound infrastructure & great care for the unique environment, Seychelles presents an opportunity for relaxed holidays for water lovers and island retreats & adventures. As a result, island hopping is an all-time favourite among Seychelles's visitors, and it can be done via many means: air plane, helicopter, ferry, chartered boat, yacht, motor boat, or even fishing boat etc.

The Seychelles International Airport is located on Mahé only 15 mins from Eden island and it receives many direct Seychelles flights of major airlines from the world's large cities.The Air Seychelles local company provides inter-island short flights in small air crafts, private services and helicopter services.

"Bliss"

Staying at Eden Island was ideal for our trip. The resteraunts and shops are close by and it is an easy 10 minutes to the airport / town. The accommodation was very comfortable and the deck was ideal for relaxing. Eden Island also ahs a gread gym, something that is lacking in most of the hotels on the island. Check in and out was very easy. I would highly recommend staying here.



Natasha (Bahrain) 6 Feb 2014



We spent two weeks during New Year holidays at the beginning of 2014 in these apartments and absolutely enjoyed our staying there.

Eden island location itself is quite calm so you feel private and safe there. You have everything necessary nearby while staying close to airport & Victoria and also not far away from all the best beaches of the island.

Apartments were really great and exceeded our expectations indeed. All the three bedrooms, living room and kitchen area are well equipped and are quite spacious. We stayed 6 adults and 2 children and didn’t feel any inconvenience at all. Area is splitted wisely into different zones on two floors so you do not feel crowdy. Furniture and equipment (basically everything you can need – washing & drying machine, cooler, washing machine for dishes, oven, microwave, tv / dvd are quite new) room service is daily. What was really great and unexpected is a huge terrace with big dinning area and grill barbeque. Nice mountain view from the last floor was amazing and relaxing making a very special atmosphere at night. There is also an opportunity to take sun bath right or just taking day break on the terrace.

We were really very pleased to stay in these apartments – location is one of the best from what we have seen in Eden (5 min from reception & 5 min from the best beach on the territory + nice view, not in bushes ))). So would really recommend them for staying on Seychelles.

Thanks a lot!!

Fantastic week in The Seychelles

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a lovely week spent on Eden Island - for a family of 5 (3 kids ranging from 16 -20), the apartment was perfect. The location of the actual apartment on the Island was great - close enough to walk to a lovely secluded beach, the gym, the supermarket & restaurants, but more fun to take the golf buggy!

The apartment was comfortable & equipped with all the basics, we spent most of our time on the huge balcony.

Eden Island itself was well located for site seeing, we hired a car & visited Beau Vallon, Victoria market, the Botanical Gardens (feeding the giant tortoises) & had a Catamaran trip out to Moyenne Island.

I would highly recommend the apartment, Eden Island & would love to return!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a totally great time, apartment is lovely. We were a bit unlucky with an air conditioner on second floor, but handyman came to mend it - and did his best. Island is lovely, beaches were maybe the best we've seen and the apartment, cleaning and service totally great. Contact with tenant Judith professional and and helpful. VMA reception very service minded. Restaurants at Eden Plaza good and supermarket well assorted. I definitely recommend this apartment to my family and friends.
