The Seychelles Islands present an abundance of diversity. A total of 115 magnificent islands, each one a little treasure on its own, scattered around the Indian Ocean. The islands have remained a sanctuary for discerning travellers over the last few decades. Here the words ‘authentic’, ‘unspoilt’ and ‘unique’ reclaim their real meaning amidst the stunning natural beauty and an environment where luscious green mountain settings line the white sandy beaches – a true paradise.
Seychelles is distinctly Creole, and a new island development that lies on the east coast of the country’s main island Mahé, has been inspired by the evocative French Creole architecture. Eden Island, the luxury marina development, whose concept epitomises this very Creole vernacular design found in Seychelles, is an attempt to replicate, not copy, and has succeeded remarkably. All homes on Eden Island are built in perfect harmony with the principles of privacy, practicality and spaciousness – all designed with finesse and luxury yet always retaining and complementing the distinctive Seychellois cultural influences.
This 56 hectares man-made luxury marina and island development has over 40 hectares of prime residential land and 16 hectares of private waterways. An exclusive private island lifestyle that appeals to the sophisticated buyer looking for excellent investment value. Eden Island has three product offerings available. Spacious apartments which offer an exquisite panorama of the main island Mahé and surrounding islands, deluxe maisons that take the form of private duplexes situated on water-front plots, and top of the range Villas which are the epitome of opulence and sophistication – all waterfront, spilling over into the inviting ocean just a few steps away. With prices starting at $425 000 for an apartment, $875 000 for a maison and $2,6m for a villa – the enticing lifestyle offered by Eden Island makes this a very sound investment.
The developers have made it a priority to replicate the local natural environment. In taking a look at the island’s scenery, one can certainly agree that Eden Island is an inspiring product of Seychelles. From the indigenous plants and trees bearing tropical fruit such as banana and papaya, to the abundant bird life and to the breath-taking beauty of its beaches and surrounding waters, brimming with vibrant fish and coral, Eden Island is a grand spectacle that has now become home to over 30 nationalities from around the world. A stamp of approval from fellow Creole strong countries is evidenced by the fact that some 6% of purchasers so far are from Seychelles and Mauritius.
It’s not difficult to see why Eden Island has attracted worldwide attention. The Seychelles’ enviable climate is always warm, without extremes and with mild tropical weather all year round, a home on Eden Island would afford you the luxury to travel any time of year with daily flights to Seychelles from a number of leading airlines, including its national carrier, Air Seychelles.
Over 430 of the 580 units have been sold to date and the recently launched and newly designed waterfront villas are already selling fast. These homes are an entertainer’s dream and come with designer standards, from top of the range finishes, to lavish living areas with all the creature comforts – including Miele appliances in two kitchens and barbeque facilities. Not only do these villa units have a veranda that opens out onto a well-appointed pool, but an outdoor jetty leading onto a private boat mooring awaits you. Villas also come with air-conditioning throughout, moorings with water and electrical points and an electronically powered buggy to get around the island.
Eden Island offers homeowners exclusive facilities including the use of the fitness centre, delicatessen, clubhouse, kids play area, an open park, two communal pools and a tennis court. Sunset walks on one of the four private beaches are an everyday event, plus there is an array of restaurants and boutiques in the recently opened Eden Plaza to keep you entertained.
Not only does Eden Island offer a fantastic lifestyle opportunity but also presents a sound investment option. The Eden Island Rental Management Company has been established for owners who are seeking investment returns on their unit. Short and long term rental options are available with a fully managed system in place. Homeowners are already experiencing excellent results and with the short term rental option, owners are still able to holiday on Eden Island, in the comfort of their unit according to their specific schedules.
It becomes increasingly clear that as this island begins to take shape, it becomes extremely difficult not to succumb to wondrous scenes of sunset cocktails on the white, sandy beaches of Eden Island and of Seychelles. An unforgettable destination in one the world’s most beautiful island settings – a true Creole inspiration!
