At the lodge
A meander through the tropical hotel grounds will leave you feeling relaxed and at peace. Magna swimming pools and koi ponds create a watery oasis to compliment the manicured gardens. There are three different dining options at the hotel including the Chill Out Tapas Lounge, a modern meeting point with ambient lighting which transforms into a dance floor later in the evening. Just a note there is a dress code for dinner. Long trousers and dresses.
The hotel has 36 guest rooms including spacious family rooms and the opulent superior rooms (which are a great option for honeymoon couples). Hillside villas offer spectacular views from the private swimming pool, and also a fully equipped kitchen and four large bedrooms. All guest rooms are en-suite with shady outdoor lounges and traditional Seychellois decor.
To get into the groove of your holiday start by visiting the Spa de Arts for a rejuvenating treatment with naturally-sourced products. The hotel is well situated and trips to Anse Lazio beach and other island attractions such as the Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve, are easy to arrange. Keep you eyes out for the unique coco de mer tree and rare black parrot. All the usual water sports are on offer and there is a small gym at the hotel.
