Trip to SeychellesRicha from Holiday Box made everything picture perfect and smooth. Everything was as per commitment. I was even provided with additional options on a very short notice and geniune price. Overall, I recommend travel triangle and holiday box, special mention to my travel arrangement partner Richa for her deep knowledge of the area and her insights. Just one future advice, Avani hotel in Mahe is not at all good. Terrible food taste paired with facility issues like improper air conditioning. My experience went completely against the reputation of this resort but then obviously I had to share this for the betterment. Every day was picturesque in Seychelles!
Trip to SeychellesHoliday box in its own arrogance claiming itself "India's no. 1 Seychelles experience curator" has missed basic details. Offering a two bed room hotel room with no doors to the bathroom literally blew my mind. Now imagine me, my wife and my brothers family staying there. While Seychelles has a wonder local rep in "CREOLE Services". Our day tours were booked with incompetent local guides who showed up nearly two hours late for the day tour pick up and stuffed 11 of us in a van that should seat a max of 8 ppl. The local guide telling us we had to buy our tickets while we had already paid holidaybox was the cherry on top. Also trying to reach Holiday box on phone was the hardest thing possible. They have really screwed up my family vacation.

The weather in December is fairly cloudy at times and rainfall is pretty common due to the Northwest Monsoon. So, if you're looking for a sunny holiday in December, Seychelles weather is not ideal.
Seychelles is a politically stable country. The islands are located outside of cyclone belt so there is no urgent threat of thunderstorms. Avoid going outdoors or to remote islands when the rainfall is incessant.
Seychelles is a luxury holiday destination so, most accommodations are available in form of high-end resorts and beach resorts. However, guesthouses and lodges are available in Mahe and Praslin Islands.
