Sea Monkey is an award-winning luxury villa on Mahé. Fully staffed, it brings together all the services and facilities of a luxurious boutique hotel, with the style and laidback comforts of an exclusive private home.
Perched dramatically on its own rocky outcrop at the lush, northern end of the island, the villa is in a secluded location surrounded by waving palms, sandy coves and the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean.
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. The interiors are a striking blend of traditional and contemporary, with handpicked objets d’art and soft furnishings bringing a real sense of personality and individual style to every corner of the place.
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 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 1,600 square metres of lush, well-maintained tropical gardens. From the gardens there’s direct access down to the sea via a gentle flight of steps, where you can swim, go kayaking or snorkel.
The spacious and well-equipped indoor kitchen, and an in-house chef to whip up anything you should fancy, ensures that all your culinary requirements are catered for in style.
There are 4 rooms in total, with the villa sleeping up to 8 people. All the rooms come with double beds adorned with high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, air conditioning, high-speed Wi-Fi, private balconies and jaw-dropping floor to ceiling views over the ocean. Style-wise, each room is individually decorated with carefully handpicked lamps, side tables, mirrors, cushions, throws and headboards made of beautiful, local Takamaka wood. Each room is slightly different from the last and no room overlooks another, even though they all have balconies. Two rooms have high wood-beamed ceilings, while another can be fitted out with 2 single beds.
If all that wasn’t quite indulgent enough, en-suite bathrooms are decked out with soft Italian cotton towels, top of the range luxury bathroom products and sea views.
