I doubt most people know which ocean they're in, let alone been there?
But you never know...
Plan on heading down there after the DDD?

I know this is an old thread, but was wondering if anyone has been to Seychelles.
My initial plan of Bora Bora may not work and this seems like a nice backup.

Never heard of Seychelles until I noticed FTG talking about it:
Quote
Mauritius hasnít been explored by points/miles addicts like the Seychelles and Maldives, but the island (and particularly the Intercontinental resort) offers an equally peaceful experience for guests looking to get away from it all.
It's interesting that he refers to Sychelles as a place that points/miles addicts have explored, yet no one here talks about them. Same goes with Mauritius and Fiji and many other places. The only "exotic" places really talked about here are HI, BOB, and MLE. Why is that? Is it because those places are really hard to get to with miles?

It is far but it's beautiful!
If you are all the way over there, you can do both, but if you're only doing one, go to Seychelles IMO.

Neither SEZ not MRU have OWB, which I believe accounts for the majority of the reason they're not as oft-spoke about.

FTFY. You don't spend nearly enough time in the MLE thread.

I'm clueless and Google didn't help. Whatever it is, how much worse can it be than the nearly-impossible-to-find available on the ever-so-long trips to BOB and MLE?

How many people you know who have been to both MLE and BOB and now are "ready" to experience "other" destinations?  ::)
