Perched upon a tall and beautiful hill, Copolia Lodge is at once a luxury resort and a celebration of the natural world. It occupies a spot close to mountains and beaches, near a freshwater spring, and beside the Indian Ocean. You'll find this exclusive destination in the southwestern region of Mahe. It's about a 25-minute drive from Mahe's airport and a 15-minute drive from Victoria, the Seychelles' capital.
Just about every spot on the premises of Copolia Lodge provides spectacular views, and from this hotel, you can see the isles of Moyenne, Long Island, and St. Anne. What's more, this lodge's architecture represents a creative mix of Creole and colonial styles. All in all, it's a very homey place. Plus, its sense of tranquility is bolstered by the fact that it only contains six rooms, including an apartment, a villa, and a suite.
Guests of this resort have plenty of pleasurable options for filling their itineraries. The hotel offers fun workshops in several categories, including such perennial favorites as scuba diving and wine tasting. Boat cruises and long, satisfying walks are always available as well. In fact, the Val Riche Copolia Trail, one of the Seychelles' most famous pathways, is adjacent to this property; it winds its way through the stunning Morne Seychellois National Park.
In short, whether you're meandering around the lush garden, enjoying a yoga session, or simply sipping your afternoon tea, the time that you spend at Copolia Lodge is invigorating for the body and soothing to the spirit.
