Beach Access Room
If you’re in Seychelles to wind down, these rooms are ideally positioned near to the spa and beach, so it’s only a short stroll to sunbathe, swim in the ocean and get pampered. Sleep well in a choice of beds. Rise and shine to a garden view. Take it easy first thing with a tea or coffee on the balcony. Freshen up with a quick blast in the shower or take your time with a soak in the tub. Help yourself to the mini bar and relax as you email home, or just snuggle up and watch a movie.
Garden View Room
Comfy and stylish for a relaxing stay, these rooms are a great choice if you love tropical nature. Take a seat on your balcony or terrace, overlooking our beautiful gardens. Choose the type of beds you prefer and whether you fancy a quick shower or lazy bath. With mini-bar treats and tea and coffee making facilities, you can enjoy refreshments without leaving your room. Between beach time and island trips, catch up on your sleep or see what movies are on.
Ocean View Room
If you love a room with a view, there’s nothing like an oceanfront stay. Watch the waves roll in with a refreshing drink in hand, taking life easy on your balcony or terrace chairs. Inside, essential comforts and amenities mean you can surf the net or watch TV, treat yourself to an afternoon snooze and freshen up before a great day or night out.
Beach Front Room
Perfect for beach lovers, these rooms offer easy access to our sandy palm-fringed shore. Feel refreshed by the breeze while you read a book or sip drinks outside on your balcony or terrace. Designed with everything you need for a comfy stay inside, you can work and play online, watch international television shows or movies, and enjoy in-room refreshments.
Ocean View Suite
Boasting almost double the size of our rooms, a suite stay gives you all the extra space and upgraded amenities to really unwind. Hang out in the lounge and plan a great day over a hot cuppa. Ease into evenings on the ocean facing balcony, sipping drinks as the sun sets before heading out to dinner. If you’re indulging in a night in, a Jacuzzi bath makes relaxing totally blissful and 24-hour room service means you dine anytime.

Mangrove & Vacoa Nature Trail Discovery

Fallen in love with Seychelles’ cuisine? Bring a taste of island life home by learning to whip up Creole or Thai dishes in one of our cooking classes.
