Kempinski Launches First Seychelles Hotel with Grand Opening Ceremony
To celebrate the launch of Kempinski's first property in the Seychelles, VIPs attended a grand opening ceremony at the hotel last weekend. The property will offer luxurious accommodation and facilities for tourists seeking relaxing Seychelles holidays.
Europe’s longest-running chain of luxury hotels, Kempinski Hotels, has celebrated the launch of its first hotel in the Seychelles with a grand opening ceremony complete with fireworks and entertainment.
The new property is situated at Baie Lazare, on the beautiful island of Mahe and will provide luxury Seychelles holidays for travellers from all over the world.
The grand opening ceremony was attended by the CEO of Kempinski Hotels, Reto Wittwer, and Kempinski president of Middle East, Africa & Indian Ocean, Ulrich Eckhardt; ministers and dignitaries from the Seychelles and neighbouring countries; travel industry leaders; more than 90 international journalists; and guests who were enjoying holidays to the Seychelles at the resort for the first time.
The General Manager of the first of Kempinski’s Seychelles hotels, Pierre Stacher, said that Baie Lazare is the perfect setting for the new property.

“This resort combines the rich natural beauty of the Seychelles with Kempinski’s signature European luxury. In the spirit of Carnival, a melting pot of cultures, we are delighted to have hosted so many people from around the world to help us commemorate this special occasion,” he commented.
Guests of the event enjoyed culinary delights at the resort’s restaurants and bars, as well as music and dance shows by performers who took part in the 2012 Carnival International de Victoria.
The luxurious resort is nestled under the granite hillside and offers breathtaking views of the sparkling crystal clear waters of the bay. The property has 150 rooms and suites and guests taking Seychelles holidays can relax amid tranquil natural surroundings made up of a white sand beach and a lush lagoon that winds its way around 63 hectares of tropical gardens.

The new Seychelles hotel by Kempiski also boasts one of the largest ballrooms in the region, with seated capacity for up to 200 guests and stunning views that stretch over the lagoon.
