Kempinski Seychelles Resort

Kempinski Seychelles Resort

Located in the south of Mahé, just a 30-minute drive from the airport, the elegant Kempinski Seychelles Resort offers indulgent luxury as well as direct access to a long stretch of the white-sand Baie Lazare beach.

The resort’s 148 rooms and suites are spread across the tropical grounds in two-storey buildings designed to blend with the surroundings. Ground-floor rooms typically have views of the lagoon, hillside and gardens, while rooms on the floor above have sea views. All rooms have a private balcony or terrace and seating area with sofa bed.

Endless activities can fill your days, from tennis and badminton to yoga and beach volleyball. Hiking trails lead from the resort through the mountains for views of the bay. There’s a large swimming pool that lines the edge of the sand and a spa for relaxation, plus a 24-hour gym. Away from dry land, you can book diving, snorkeling or kayaking tours and fishing trips at the hotel’s PADI dive facility. You can also take advantage of the resort’s 24-hour in-room dining and choice of four restaurants and bars.
