Among committed scuba divers, Desroches Island, a private-island resort in the Amirante Atolls of the outer Seychelles, has long been known for proximity to world‑class dive sites and, since 1988, for an exclusive resort that did one of the better permutations of low-key luxury to be found in the Indian Ocean. After a closure of two years – and a tip-to-toe redesign and upgrade – it has been remade as Four Seasons Resort at Desroches Island (fourseasons.com; from £1,150).

Starting this month, guests of the 51 fresh timber-and-glass suites and villas can once again enjoy Desroches’ nine-odd miles of beaches – along with an anti-gravity yoga pavilion, impressive tennis facilities and an environmental discovery centre.
