Best of the Best 2011: Vacation Homes: Resort Residences: Four Seasons Private Residences Seychelles

The brilliant white sand of Petite Anse beach separates Mahé island’s lush green jungle from the bright-blue waters of the Indian Ocean, forming a striking setting for the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles. "I have never seen sand so fine and white," says the property’s general manager, Alastair McAlpine, who has operated resorts for Four Seasons in the Maldives and Hawaii. "The colors are so complex and rich it’s difficult to describe them."

This rainbow of coastline is one of many perks that owners of the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles’ recently completed private residences can enjoy—from the beach or from their homes’ sundecks and pools. Located on Mahé, Seychelles’ largest island, the Four Seasons’ 28 full-ownership villas (the last of which will be completed in July) are spread across 88 acres of lush hillside. Each three- to six-bedroom villa, priced from $7.25 to $12.5 million, sits on 1.5 to more than four acres of land. Catwalk-like teak decks link the rooms, which can be decorated in styles ranging from French chic to British contemporary.

Among the standard features are wood-plank ceilings, outdoor showers, and technologies such as MP3-capable Bose stereos and 52-inch plasma TVs. Also promising to make owners feel at home are 24-?hour concierge service and access to the Four Seasons’ fitness center, spa, two restaurants, and other facilities.
