The Vision

A new day is beginning on Ile Soleil, and with it a different concept of living for Seychelles is taking shape.

Spread out across 123,000 square metres of reclaimed land off Mahé’s eastern coast, Ile Soleil is a residential and commercial development for Seychellois that is meant to re-kindle a sense of community and belonging for its residents and patrons. Using the latest green technologies, together with a carefully designed development plan, the island aims to overcome the pitfalls of piecemeal development, while serving as a platform for homes, businesses and civic attractions to co-exist in harmony with nature. A village of the future that pays homage to our rich cultural past, Ile Soleil is where the resourcefulness and economy of Creole traditions, together with modern technologies, merge toward one common footprint for an ecologically sound lifestyle.

Sustainable living will reign on Ile Soleil. Seychelles has long been at the forefront of nature conservation, and Ile Soleil is set to become the definitive showcase of the country’s leading stance on sustainable development.

Technological advances in clean energy and resource usage, from solar panels to rain-water catchment systems, will form the blueprint and basis for all development on the island, in tandem with principles of traditional Creole architecture. The result will see a new kind of community in which Seychellois can prosper – one that is guided by decades-old moral values, nurtured by tradition, and sustained by the savings from resource-efficient homes and businesses.

Location Adjacent to Anse Aux Pins on the east coast of Mahé, Ile Soleil is ideally located: centralised and close enough to major commerce and transport hubs, yet remote enough to offer the idyllic peace and quiet reminiscent of the island’s rural hideaways. The island is 15 minutes’ drive to the capital Victoria, 10 minutes’ drive to Providence Industrial Estate, 10 minutes’ drive to Anse Royale and 5 minutes’ drive to the Seychelles International Airport at Pointe Larue.


Residential plots are at the heart of the Ile Soleil development, and will provide a multitude of Seychellois families with a first chance to own a home.

An island community for Seychellois

Build your Home

Careful consideration has gone into every last detail of the Ile Soleil project. Tourism, residential and commercial areas have been strategically zoned to co-exist harmoniously for the some 1,000 residents expected to call the island home. A road network will provide accessibility across the island. Community facilities - include plans for a school and health centre – will create a positive environment for healthy and productive lifestyles, for all who live on or commute to the island.

After the purchase of a residential plot, a variety of different housing styles will be available to suit each plot owners’ ambition for its development. Ile Soleil’s guidelines for development will ensure all residential developments on the island share a unified Creole architectural style, while adhering to best practices of sustainable and efficient design.

Numerous opportunities await those who wish to build a future for themselves on Ile Soleil, as first-time land-owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.

Simplex Geared towards small families, the simplex can either be a stand-alone one-story house with two bedrooms, or a single unit family development of two stories.


For those with the entrepreneurial spirit, Ile Soleil will present new opportunities for business to thrive through a selection of commercial plots up for bid.

Grow Business

Duplex Duplexes feature two separate living units in one building, and are conveniently suited for extended families, or for a resident with commercial designs on renting or selling one of the units. A larger duplex may have up to two master bedrooms with two single bedrooms in each unit, whilst smaller duplexes may have one master bedroom and a single bedroom.

Existing companies and start-ups alike will be able to serve the needs of the Ile Soleil community, and even the rest of MahÊ for those with an ambition to drive commerce to the island. From retail to small-scale industry, businesses will benefit from the close proximity of the island’s residents and an atmosphere.

Condominium (Apartments) Condominiums on Ile Soleil can have four, six or nine apartments in one building, for those keen on convenient living units without the upkeep of a garden. Apartment sizes can range from just under 100 sqm to 145 sqm per unit, providing a degree of flexibility for plot owners to develop their property toward different segments of the housing market.

Most importantly, providing outlets for economic prosperity will assure opportunities for employment and wealth creation for future generations on the island.

New dreams and opportunities begin today. Ile Soleil will be a living demonstration of what’s possible when sustainable living practices are at the core of future development. And its impacts will be felt well beyond the island itself. The development phase alone is expected to showcase a new model for business, with different mindsets and better priorities – from the architect who researches the most innovative and ecologically friendly designs, to the contractor who brings that design to fruition – for virtually every facet of both public and commercial enterprise. Any number of spin-off services will be required to suit the needs of this progressive new Ile Soleil lifestyle, providing lucrative opportunities for all. And, for a handful of successful applicants, the opportunity to build the foundation of a community that the rest of Seychelles can aspire toward.

Make the decision today. Embark on a new concept of living for the Seychellois of tomorrow. Live, work and flourish in a peaceful and morally strong community, with traditional values and sustainable, eco-friendly lifestyles. First-time home and land purchasers and aspiring entrepreneurs are all being invited to take part in this Seychellois-only development. Could you be one of them?
