Nestled against a spectacular backdrop of mountains and ocean, the resort features an array of amenities and facilities including complimentary wi-fi access from the internet lounge, a newly-installed Technogym and an ocean-facing resort restaurant and bar.

The 30 spacious rooms and suites all enjoy ocean views and, for total relaxation, guests can luxuriate in the hotel’s signature spa, perched on a large granite boulder and surrounded by tropical foliage. The more energetic can enjoy snorkelling and scuba diving while nature lovers can discover Seychelles’ mountain treasure by exploring the many nearby nature walks.
