Why you should be travelling to Seychelles right now

Good News – Seychelles is now on your app as a brand new hot destination and we’ve got the perfect hotel lined up for you to stay at too. The other good news is that the borders are open and Seychelles are welcoming tourists with open arms. It’s been a long road to recovery from the global coronavirus pandemic. For some of us, we’re still in the thick of it but we’re starting to see glimmers of hope and positivity with countries relaxing restrictions and allowing tourism.

Seychelles is a blessed place that isn’t too far away but will make you feel like a brand new person. With a few simple COVID checks, travelling to Seychelles from the UAE is safe and easy. You’ll need a negative COVID test 48 hours before you depart the UAE and another negative test 48 hours before returning – that’s it. No quarantine, no fuss!

Is it safe to travel to Seychelles?

There’s no need to worry about social distancing at the JA Enchanted Island Resort. This stunning remote island has only 10 private villas and miles and miles of tropical space to roam around. You won’t have to worry about ever bumping into another person if you don’t want to.

You can hop on private boat tours and spend the day out to sea with no one around. Or why not enjoy paddleboarding, kayaking, and snorkelling?  If you just want to relax take a stroll along the beach or relax in the safety of your own villa. The JA Enchanted Island Resort is the ultimate destination to relax and enjoy your well-deserved break in peace away from crowds of people.

The JA Enchanted Island Resort speaks for itself. Everyone’s travel plans were completely upended this year, so you won’t need a lot of convincing to book a trip to Seychelles now that it’s open for business. The icing on the cake is that you can save money while doing it with your ENTERTAINER travel offers.
