Kempinski Seychelles Resort in Baie Lazare at the southern most tip of the Mahe island is a recently opened resort in the Seychelles region for 2012. Kempinski hotels and resorts are a world renowned hotel and resort chain known for luxury in the midst of some of the world’s most famous and luxurious travel destinations, offering five star quality and comfort to hundreds and thousands of guests each year.
Luxury, Comfort And Adventure On A Seychelles Holiday
The Kempinski Seychelles resort’s ubiquitous style brings a further temptation of five star luxury to the shores of Mahe island and the Takamaka region by delivering over 140 rooms that offer total seclusion and privacy throughout. Each of the rooms and suites are designed top to tail in the most contemporary designs with comfort and luxury at the fore.
The Seychelles has long been a destination for the rich and famous, whether it’s the main island of Mahe or the surrounding Islands of Silhouette Island, Fregate Island or Praslin Island that help to make up this 115 island nation in the Indian Ocean. With its all year round summer climate, you can enjoy the natural beauty and scenic delights of a country that revolves around tourism and ensures your every need is attended too with top class customer service.
Each part of the Seychelles offers a different perspective on life, luxury and activities but when you stay on Mahe Island you have the opportunity to discover a wider aspect of the Seychelles than you would when staying on a secluded Island.
In this respect, a stay at the Kempinski Seychelles Resort on the Baie Lazare and Mahe mainland enables you to partake in a variety of different expeditions, day trips and adventures over and above the activities so splendidly arranged on other isolated islands in the region.
Knowing that each island and region offers a different level of interaction with islanders and fellow holiday makers will allow you to contemplate whether a stay at Kempinski Seychelles Resort is preferable above a secluded stay on one of the private islands such as Fregate Island. With that in mind, let’s take a glance at some of the rooms and suites on offer at the Kempinski hotel on Mahe.
Kempinski Seychelles Resort Rooms And Suites
With the beach to the south and the tropical forests to the north, each and every apartment and suite offers differing views and landscapes. You can opt for the appropriately named Hill View, Beachside or Sea View rooms each enabling the obviously termed landscape or seascape. All the rooms and suites come with Interactive TV-System, Electronic Safe, Tea and Coffee Facilities, Ipod Docking Station, Mini-Fridge and Free Base Internet.
The Hill View Rooms are up to 50 metres squared and enables mountain views of the tropical forests and a lagoon. Complete with flat screen tv and lounge area with an additional sofa bed, the bedrooms contain a king or twin beds with a contemporary room design. A luxurious bathroom as standard with clear pane shower unit. All the rooms have a private terrace and from the Hill View rooms at the Kempinski Seychelles Resort you can watch wildlife while enjoying the company of your partner and view the scenery for miles around.
The Beachside Rooms rank as some of the best in the world, not merely because of the furniture and design of furnishings inside but the term Beachside is vastly underestimated.
Situated on the ground floor, as pictured left, open the terrace sliding doors which are fully glass paned to give an amazing view even when closed, and within two seconds you are walking on lush green grass and within sixty seconds you can be walking on the Seychelles sands and diving into the Baia Lazare. Now that is some top notch five star beachside room access.
There are two types of Beachside rooms, the Deluxe Beachside room coming with a bathtub as well as shower unit and a neat little nespresso machine for additional comfort. Either way, having the ability to live in such luxury for a week or two and being able to access the garden and beach in seconds has to be one of the major selling points of a stay in the Takamaka region of Mahe and the Kempinski Seychelles Resort.
The Seaview Rooms at the Kempinski hotel are above the Beachside Rooms and on the first floor. These provide, as you would expect, an elevated view of the sea and access to the ground floor is provided by a rear stair well. Each of the upper floor apartments come with a terrace to admire the views and again there are two different Seaview rooms and the deluxe provides for a bath tub and Nespresso machine.
All of the facilities at Kempinski are of the highest quality and designed with contemporary furnishings to provide for a luxurious feel and cosy environment.
Everything from lighting to furniture is arranged in such a way as to provide a feel for a luxury lifestyle as typified by the phrase – a Jewel in the Indian Ocean. The bedrooms in the majority of the rooms and suites are elevated if not separated from the main living room.
There are two styles of suites at the Kempinski Seychelles Resort and they both exemplify opulence and Seychelles desires like no other room in the Kempinski hotel. Both situatated on the ground floor, One Bedroom Hill View Suite and One Bedroom Beachside Suite overlook their namesakes and are thirty square metres larger than the average room, at 80 sqm.
Each of the suites contain bathtub and shower, offer accommodation for up to four people including one child. A king size bed in separate living quarters, optional spare bed, dining room area, lounge area and terrace with sliding full paned windows enabling easy access to the gardens and beach. If your holiday desires are the kind where you wish your base to be a home from home then the Suites at the Kempinski will certainly deliver that luxury and much, much more.
