Savoy Resort & Spa Seychelles


Cradled between white sands and granite peaks, Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa made quite an impact when it first opened in May 2014. Its daring dimensions, striking designs and serene private spaces were enhanced not only by a world-class spa, but also by a 700sqm swimming pool immediately dubbed the largest anywhere in the Seychelles.

This 5-star yet family-friendly getaway is spread out over 16-acres on the edge of the most popular bay in Mahé. Beau Vallon revels in its authentic, seaside vibe, as well as the kind of endless, white sand beach that encourages swimming, snorkelling and starry-eyed strolls at sunset.

The views from the private balconies of the 163 guest rooms are just as inspirational, whether they’re of lofty peaks, vibrant gardens or the sparkling Indian Ocean. But step back inside the room and it’s all about soothing shades, natural textures and sleek lines. The flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and exclusive Molton Brown amenities are just a handful of the 21st century luxuries.

Indeed an exciting range of state-of-the-art facilities is on offer here, including a floodlit tennis court, air-conditioned fitness centre, dedicated kids’ club and 480sqm of dedicated meetings space. Highly experienced wedding planners ensure the tropical weddings and honeymoons are always special occasions. Yet nothing underscores the luxe but laid-back vibe better than the world-class spa. This 5,800sqm sanctuary offers exclusive Sothys Paris skincare products, as well as authentic treatments from specialists flown in from around the world.

And of course dining at the Savoy is an equally cosmopolitan event. The international chefs make full use of the island’s bounty as they show off their skills in three appealing venues, one beachside, one poolside and one with candlelit tables overlooking a serene reflection pond. After dark, mood music and carefully-aged cocktails send contented guests off to beds beautifully draped in fine Egyptian cottons.
