The Seychelles archipelago in the Indian Ocean has for many decades been attracting more and more tourists in search of calm and picture post card decors. The largest island in the archipelago and its economic center is Mahé, with Victoria as its capital. Discovered by chance by Lazare Picault’s crew and the French East India Company in 1752, it fell under British domination in the 19th century. It wasn’t until 1916 that the archipelago obtained its independence. Although Mahé has experienced an incredible increase in tourism recently, it has managed to preserve its authenticity. Its natural décor is breathtaking, and its particularly abundant flora adds to the beauty of the island in the same way as its sparkling, fine sand beaches. However, there’s more to Mahé than that. It’s the ideal place to discover the traditions and the culture of its warm and hospitable inhabitants. A visit to the market and craft boutiques around it is highly recommended.
It’s in Mahé, on the edge of the famous Beau Vallon Bay, that we find the Seychelles’ very first hotel, Le Méridien Fisherman’s Cove. Dating back to 1943, it has been totally renovated to remain true to its reputation as an upscale and hospitable hotel. Its traditional architecture is in perfect harmony with the tropical flora around it, assuring guests lucky enough to be staying there, a total change of scene.
The rooms and suites are spacious, elegantly decorated, modern and very comfortable. Each one has a balcony or a terrace with a panoramic view of the horizon, the ocean and the tropical garden. A superb swimming pool overlooks the ocean for enjoyable relaxing moments. The Zen spa offers a wide variety of massages and treatments as well as a hammam and a Jacuzzi. A fitness center, tennis court and different non-motorized nautical activities are available for those who crave physical exercise. For other guests who come to the Seychelles for sea and sun, nothing is better than a session of basking on the Beau Vallon beach, where the fine sand and warm, clear water are a prelude to Paradise.
Two restaurants and two bars are at the disposition of guests of the Fisherman’s Cove. The Cardinal, facing the sea offers copious breakfasts and local cuisine in the form of a buffet every evening, whereas at the Bourgeois, guests can enjoy the a la carte dishes at the same time as the superb sunsets from the terrace. For those who prefer to relax in their rooms, room service is available on a 24-hour basis.
