Contrary to popular thinking, travelling during a pandemic might actually be the best time to go on holiday! Not only are health and safety measure more stringent and transparent than ever before, but many tourism establishments have used the quiet period over the last

12 months to update their properties and are now offering their clients new and improved products, without the crowds. Seychelles is no exception to this trend, and many of our best-loved hotel partners have done some impressive modifications to their already-popular products:


Hilton Northholme Resort & Spa has undergone some pretty extensive updates recently: they’ve launched a new villa type called Signature Grand Ocean View Pool Villa, upgraded their public areas and have completely revolutionised their food and beverage offering. The resort now boasts two new restaurants and one new bar, in addition to their world-class offerings:

Mahé, their new signature restaurant, serves guests à la carte breakfast and dinner in an eclectic, interactive festival of food inspired by local Creole cuisine. Mahé features a social table, live cooking station, outdoor terrace and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

Split-level, Ocean View Bar, offers uninterrupted ocean views, magical sunsets and a selection of local and international cocktails. Live music performances by top Seychellois musicians add to the local cultural experience.

WAVE invites guests to enjoy true tranquillity in a space with vivid ocean views and a nurturing ambience. À la carte lunch and dinner is served daily.

The Lower Deck (TLD) is a trendy pop- up gin bar with exceptional views, perfected gin cocktails and live saxophone performances.  It is an unbeatable location for enjoying some of the best sunsets in Seychelles.

We are pleased to share the news that Bird Island, Seychelles will be opening mid-July 2021, with an exciting new self-catering villa concept. The island now features 6 two-bedroom villas and 1 three-bedroom villa. Each villa comprises of a newly built private kitchen-bar-lounge set on the grounds to the front of the bedrooms (existing chalets). This has created over 1,200 sqm of private space for guests to enjoy. The design of these new additions feature the same characteristics as the bedrooms – an open layout, wooden beams and minimal furnishings, reflecting the island resort’s values of remaining simple, authentic and being immersed in nature. Catering options range from a shop where the necessities for one’s stay may be purchased, a sandwich and salad order service throughout the day, tasting local flavours with in-villa dining and a restaurant for evening dining.

The new apartments are set slightly back from the Promenade, with private access to the popular Beau Vallon beach just a two-minute walk away.

Le Duc now offers additional contemporary luxury with the opening of their new Ocean Wing. This addition to one of Praslin’s most-popular hotels includes 20 deluxe rooms which look out to the beachfront. The new wing is characterised by modern, clean-lines, decking and an aero pool.
