Seychelles or Mauritius which is better for family holidays



Seychelles has always been considered as a destination for a luxury honeymoon, wedding anniversary or special event. However over the past few years, the Seychelles has become more popular with families, and some accommodations, particularly on the island of Mahe have 3 bedroom villas.

The problem with the Seychelles as a family holiday destination is the high cost of food. Children are always on the look out for snacks and ice cream. The food bill together with the costs of activities to keep them amused can mean a total holiday cost twice the size of that special offer which only included room and breakfast.

All Inclusive Holidays in the Seychells do not exist. Our recommendation is to book a family holiday resort which offers Half Board or Full Board.

Seychelles always tried to discourage children to keep it’s reputation as an adult destination, and although some resorts advertised as welcoming families they did not have any kids clubs or childrens entertainment.

A relaxing retreat opened in early 2010, Constance Ephelia Resort combines a kids’ club for 4-12 year olds, a beautiful sprawling setting with delectable cuisine, a sumptuous spa and a welcoming atmosphere to create a slice of paradise.

Constance Ephelia Resort has been created to meld seamlessly with its natural setting and create a tranquil space to allow you to relax. The resort enjoys a beautiful beach, four sumptuous pools, a stunning Shiseido spa set in beautiful tropical gardens. There are five restaurants and five bars, each with its own style of cuisine and decor, choose from Mediterranean, an ethnic grill, seafood special or traditional Seychelles cuisine, much of which is cooked ‘a la pancha’ – in front of the guests.

Mauritius was for many years also considered as a destination for a luxury honeymoon, wedding anniversary or special event. This situation has been changing and you can now find All Inclusive Mauritius Holidays which help take the sting out of the cost of family holidays.

Mauritius is more suitable as a family beach holiday destination. Most of the hotels and resorts offer childrens clubs and some also cater for teenager activities.
