Kempinski Seychelles Resort Reopens after Expansion

By Chris Boyle

Kempinski Seychelles ResortKempinski Seychelles Resort has welcomed its first guests to its newly expanded dining and recreational facilities after a brief closure of the resort.

The enhancement project saw substantial financial investment and was successfully completed in time for the busiest season at the luxury resort.

“Feedback from guests and trade partners, and our aspirations to exceed guest expectations at Kempinski’s first resort in the Seychelles were at the centre of the decision to further enhance key areas of the property,” said Jean-Marc Michel, General Manager.

“Our resort really showcases the beauty of the Seychelles. By opening a new dive centre and creating more outdoor dining space through expansion of our restaurants, we are able to offer more of a high-definition paradise experience to our guests.”

Domed pergolas enhance the main restaurant Café Lazare which now has an additional 40 outdoor seats and serves delicious creole cuisine in the relaxed atmosphere.

The pergola theme continues along the L’Indochine restaurant terrace, where an additional 20 outdoor seats extend along the lagoon and look out over dramatic graphite gray boulders and the local wildlife.

Windsong beach bar has transformed into a fully operational restaurant with a barbeque grill station.

“Live cooking stations add variety to the guests’ dining experience as well as an opportunity for us to interact with them. We want to know how to elevate their experience at the resort and this area has always been a favorite among our guests,” commented Ms Chassagnon, F&B Manager.

Along the beach, 100m from the main building, a team of licensed diving instructors at the new Dive Centre are ready to introduce avid scuba enthusiasts to the underwater world of the Seychelles. Guests have access to PADI courses as well as a variety of diving excursions. The “Pirates Cove” dive reveals underwater granite typography with sightings of whale-sharks and abundant marine life. Meanwhile, an “Alice in Wonderland” expedition explores the enchanting coral site which survived the impact of the El Niño weather phenomenon.
