Seychelles: UAE-based hospitality group JA Resorts & Hotels is to open Enchanted Island Resort in the Seychelles in Q3 2013.

The five-star resort, the first JA property outside of Dubai, is home to eight one-bedroom Private Pool Villas and two two-bedroom Enchanted Signature Villas, designed to reflect the island's traditional Creole-Seychellois architecture. It is situated on an island in the middle of a National Marine Park and can be booked on an individual or exclusive basis.

Each villa features a private infinity pool, walkway to the beach, deck, outdoor rain shower, French bathtub, four-poster king size bed, LED screen with satellite channels, DVD player, iPod docking station and complimentary Wi-Fi internet access.

F&B outlets include the Bounty Restaurant, which overlooks the resort's main swimming pool and the Castaway Bar. In-villa dining is also available.

David Thomson, chief operating officer of JA Resorts & Hotels, said: "We are delighted to open this stunning resort and it makes for an impressive portfolio addition, our first outside Dubai.While it has been a delicate and extensive process to get to this stage, we were keen to assist in creating a very special product and disturb as little of the original island flora as possible."

General manager Eric Laurent said: "Enchanted Island Resort offers an exemplary experience of genuine island hospitality that our guests will remember long after they have departed."
