During my beach honeymoon in June, our resort’s many complimentary watersports kept the days blissfully active. My favorite, stand-up paddleboarding, exceeded all my expectations; it was a blast, a tough workout, and offered the best view of the beach. In spite of a few flops on my first trip out, I actually caught on, propelling myself and staying afloat with a completely clear mind. I was hooked. Now I understand why this sport is popping up at luxe resorts around the world.
One of those, Raffles Praslin Seychelles, is taking this trend to the next level with hourly lessons on proper technique and yoga classes atop the boards. Recommended for true yogis, guests can swap their mats for paddleboards and practice their downward dogs and halfmoons while floating in the ocean. This dynamic fitness combination develops core strength, flexibility, and balance, with the continuous challenge of adapting to the motion of the board. To fully experience the idyllic setting, guests can reserve a private sunrise or sunset session.
