For those looking for a luxury 4 bedroomed villa in the Seychelles, Villa Sea Monkey is the villa for you. It is built on a secluded rocky peninsula in the exclusive region of Glacis, an area known for sandy beaches, coral reefs, lush vegetation and also the place Ian Fleming was inspired to write “For Your Eyes Only”. For restaurants, bars and local markets, Beau Vallon Bay is nearby or the island’s capital of Victoria is a 20 minute drive away.
Sea Monkey is situated less than a five minute walk from the beach. The unobstructed 180-degree views take in two distant islands, a pair of bays situated on either side of the villa, a front landscape of ancient granite boulders descending to the azure waters and a small, secluded cove a short swim away.
In front of the villa and framing the view of the sea is Sea Monkey’s dramatic centrepiece and focal point: a 60 square metre infinity pool. Surrounded by loungers and giving onto multiple levels of wooden decking, it’s one of those rare places where time can stand still as you lie back and listen to the waves lapping on the rocks.
The villa is surrounded by 1600 square metres of lush, well-maintained tropical gardens. The perimeters are fringed with attractive floral margins and, in places, by fruit-bearing tropical trees such as avocado, bananas, chillies, patole, paw paw, red coconuts, citronelle and lime – all of which of course, make their way to the dining table.
From the gardens there’s direct access down to the sea via a gentle flight of steps, where you can swim, go kayaking or snorkelling, or even lazily cast a line out to try to catch a fish or two
The accommodation consists of immaculate interiors with quality furnishings and stylish decor
• 4 air-conditioned double rooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and private balconies
• Two fully equipped kitchens
• Upper and lower verandah
• Infinity pool
• There’s a gazebo with a lounge, bar, barbecue and a dining area accessed by a walkway carved through dramatic granite outcrops straight from the Jurassic era.
• Large living area with dining room and bar
Sea Monkey’s range of amenities extends from fishing rods for casting off the rocks and snorkelling equipment, to kayaks, paddling boards and, back on dry land, a table tennis table. The staff are also delighted to organise car rentals, fishing and diving trips and other excursions, and can also arrange for in-house yoga sessions and spa treatments on request.
The villa was designed by the renowned Mauritian architect, Jean Marc Eynaud. Stretching out across 400 square metres, inside the villa is all chic, earthy tones, plush wooden floors and grand, wooden beamed ceilings, while high glass doors slide open on to panoramic views of the quiet surrounding coves, and out across the ocean to Praslin and La Digue islands.
Sea Monkey is truly unique to the Seychelles with the sense that the villa is completely at one with its natural surroundings and how they flow throughout the entire place.
