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.

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.

During holidays in the Seychelles, visitors can work out at the 24-hour fitness centre; choose from the wide range of fun watersports such as scuba diving, snorkelling and kayaking; drop the kids off at the Kempinski Kids Club which has its own shaded pool and variety of exciting activities; or unwind with a rejuvenating treatment at Kempinski The Spa which provides a secluded sanctuary within lush gardens and an extensive menu of treatments and services.

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.
