With its raw natural beauty, spellbinding beaches and laid-back vibes, the Seychelles  is a jet-setter’s dream destination. We caught up with Sabrina Chakici   for  the  ultimate travel guide to this blissful paradise.
Where is the best place to stay in the Seychelles?

The Four Seasons on Mahe Island is the dream, the rooms are spectacularly secluded with private pools and incredible views of the bay. 

Your favourite restaurant everyone should try.

The Lighthouse at Desroches Island, the setting is so romantic and the food is delicious.

What's the best beach to visit in the Seychelles?

Madame Zabre on Desroches Island, the local turtles agree! We saw at least 5 a day when swimming here, it was magical.

Your favourite things to do in the Seychelles.

Wandering the shoreline spotting reef sharks and stingrays, kayaking at sunrise, discovering marine life and watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean with a glass of ice cold rosé.

How do you adapt your beauty routine to suit your jet set lifestyle?

I have a handful of 'swear by' products and luckily all of them come in travel sizes! Ultrasun's tinted SPF is all I'll wear during the day and in the evening I love Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair. Other than washing it daily, I will leave my hair to it when I'm in hot and humid countries...I have zero time for a blow dry when there's a brand new place for me to discover! L'oreal Extraordinary Hair Oil is my saviour, I apply it every day to my wet hair and it does all the work for me!

Your beach bag essentials.

A book, a dry touch SPF spray in 30+, a pareo/chiffon shawl and a metal straw.

Which Odabash pieces did you pack for your trip?

The Cyrpus Cheetah swimsuit and the Geneva Swimsuit In Apricot (which I ended up living in as both a top and a swimsuit!). I wear both of these in a UK Size 10, I sized up in both and I'm glad I did as they fit perfect. 


You looked phenomenal in the Cyprus swimsuit. Could you give our readers some easy styling tips that can turn the swimsuit up a notch?

Thanks lovelies! I think the best way to spruce up your suit is with a fresh tan and minimal accessories. The print does all the work for you in this case! I personally choose not to tan naturally in the sun so I always get a 'Fake Bake' spray tan before I travel somewhere hot. It just gives me a confidence boost in swimwear that I now wouldn't be without! 

Your tips for travelling to the Seychelles.

The Seychelles are stunning, the sand flies agree! Make sure you pack lots of bug spray!

Your next holiday destination.

I'd like to hit the slopes next so I'm off to Austria skiing, after there I'm back in the sun with a trip to Antigua followed by The Maldives.
