LXR Hotels & Resorts have announced plans to open “Mango House Seychelles” on Mahé island in early 2021.
The new resort is situated on pristine beachfront in the southern part of Mahé, stretching along the edge of the Anse aux Poules Bleues – a sparkling calm bay with shallow clear waters.
Mango House Seychelles will provide “a convivial retreat where guests can soak in breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean and explore Mahé’s white sandy beaches”.
“We are delighted to have signed an agreement to bring LXR Hotels & Resorts to the Seychelles,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East and Africa, Hilton. “We currently operate three properties on the islands and the destination’s enduring appeal as a year-round holiday sanctuary for the world’s discerning travellers makes it a prime location to grow our luxury portfolio with the LXR brand. In addition to providing tailored service, Mango House Seychelles will allow guests to delight in a myriad of unique and exciting culinary concepts, including a variety of locally inspired menus. Guests can look forward to enjoying a boutique luxury resort experience at this outstanding LXR property.”
Originally built as a family dwelling by celebrated Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri, Mango House Seychelles promises a sense of home in a private and remote location with 41 spacious and immaculately designed guest rooms including nine suites. Every aspect of the guest experience stays true to Seychelles’ vibrant heritage and culture, from the resort’s artisanal charm to its thoughtful and genuine service. The resort’s consummate hosts are on hand to create authentic experiences that will last a lifetime – from barefoot candlelit dinners to intimate escapes. Guests will also have the opportunity to explore the turquoise waters of the Anse A La Mouche bay and its kaleidoscope of flora and fauna through an exciting range of water sport activities such as kayaking and snorkelling.
“It’s a pleasure to introduce LXR to the Seychelles where our guests will experience the unique story of this incredible property come to life,” said Feisal Jaffer, global head, LXR Hotels & Resorts. “Developed in harmony with its picturesque surroundings, Mango House Seychelles will deliver handcrafted hospitality with the rich and fascinating Seychellois culture woven into every aspect of the guest experience. The property will be a fabulous addition to our growing collection, and we look forward to extending LXR’s exceptional service to both visitors and locals of these fabled islands.”
