New Hotel Opening

59 pool villas on a deserted island: Waldorf Astoria comes to the Seychelles

Hilton will open two new resorts under the Waldorf Astoria luxury brand and the Canopy by Hilton lifestyle brand in Seychelles in 2023. With the previously announced Mango House Seychelles by LXR brand and the three existing properties – Hilton Seychelles Labriz, Hilton Seychelles Northolme and DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles – there will then be six Hilton resorts to choose from.

The new Waldorf Astoria Platte Island is being built on one of the Seychelles’ secluded Outer Islands with just three residents and will have only 59 oceanfront villas, all with private pools. An exclusive luxury experience should therefore be guaranteed. Also planned are six restaurants and bars, a spa, a mini club, an observatory, tennis courts and a Marine Conservation Discovery Centre.

Platte Island is located about 135 kilometres south of Mahé. The 54-hectare paradise, covered by palm forests, is 1,250 metres long and a maximum of 550 metres wide. Surrounded by a coral reef and a lagoon, it forms the last remnant of a sunken atoll and was only discovered by a French lieutenant in 1769. A small airstrip allows direct flights from Mahé. Unfortunately, only one photo of this resort has been published so far.

The new Canopy by Hilton Mahé will be built directly on Anse à la Mouche on the main island of Mahé and will consist of 120 rooms and suites. Also on Mahé, but on Anse aux Poules Bleues, the Mango House Seychelles of Hilton’s LXR Hotels & Resorts brand is scheduled to open in March 2021. Guests can look forward to 50 rooms and suites, three pools, five restaurants and bars, a spa and a fitness centre. We have already reported on the new luxury resort here and here.
