KEMPINSKI SEYCHELLES RESORT BAIE LAZARE
The Kempinski Seychelles Resort is an indulgent retreat offering a huge variety of facilities and activities.From adventure holidays spent exploring the unique natural landscape of the Seychelles to romantic breaks in one of the breath-taking suites.
If a 6-star grading exists for accommodation establishments in the Seychelles, that would be my rating for this superb resort. From the friendly and efficient attention of staff on check-in to the luxurious room amenities, wide ranging facilities and ample activities, this resort has it all.
Located on the exclusive south end of Mahé directly on the famous Baie Lazare Beach, the Kempinski Seychelles Resort is close to the airport and 40 minutes from the capital Victoria.
Excellent cuisine is served at four unique venues; including the signature L’Indochine restaurant, inspired by the cuisine of the Indian Ocean rim, the casual Windsong poolside bar, which offers an eclectic selection of carefully crafted cocktails and snacks, and Café Lazare ? the resort’s buffet-style dining venue where breakfasts and themed dinners are a gastronomic delight. The Planter’s Bar and Lounge is located just off the lobby area, where a delectable selection of snacks and a special medley of cocktails can be enjoyed.
Every room has a balcony overlooking the lawns leading onto the beach and a view of the Indian Ocean. Little touches like personalized messages on the rooms plasma TV screen, daily letters from management and newspaper snippets in the language of your choice, a complimentary bottle of wine and fruit tray on arrival and a fully stocked bar fridge, which you only pay to have restocked, are all part of the service.
Room amenities include his and hers bathrobes and slippers, monogrammed suit bag and shoe shine implements in the dressing room cupboards and the widest range of bathroom amenities that I’ve ever come across.
In true resort style, the hotel caters for families with a supervised Kids Club. The club is open 7 days a week from 9:00 to 18:00 hours and children from 4-12 years old are cared for free of charge. A daily activities roster keeps guests active, while sport equipment from the Watersports Pavillion kiosk on the beach can be used at any time of the day. The Tidal Lounge has an extensive library for both books and DVD’s. It also serves as the games room, where guests can practice their skills on the piano or at the snooker table. An ultra-modern gym located adjacent to the pool caters for cardiovascular and power training sessions, while the
Meetings and events are catered for through three indoor venues, of which the Salon Quincy is one of the largest in the Seychelles, catering for 200 theatre style seats.
Weddings and honeymoons are specialised events that the resort caters to and I can think of few venues that are better staffed and equipped to cater for these memorable moments of a lifetime.
The luxury spa and wellness centre, set against a majestic hillside backdrop, has six private treatment rooms with a twin treatment room for honeymooners or special treatments
