Global hospitality group, Minor Hotels, hopes to complete the multimillion-dollar upgrade and expansion of its Avani Barbarons Seychelles Resort on Mahé by early 2023.
Amir Golbarg, Vice President Operations, Minor Hotels, Middle East, North Africa, Seychelles & Mauritius, said: “We are really excited to announce this significant investment into Avani Barbarons, which will reposition the resort as a lifestyle destination in the Seychelles.”
The existing 124 guest rooms and suites will be refurbished, with 68 rooms added as new room types. Twenty-six Lagoon Access rooms will give guests direct access to a new lagoon-style swimming pool set just back from the beach alongside landscaped gardens, while 26 Lagoon View rooms will have views of the pool and ocean.
The four new Avani Beach Suites, each with four rooms, a private plunge pool and direct beach access, will offer extra space and privacy and will be ideal for groups of friends and families travelling together.
The main swimming pool will be transformed into an infinity pool with a sunken bar and beach decking, all surrounded by tropical landscaping.
New restaurants will include an all-day-dining option with an al fresco terrace, a live barbecue serving breakfasts and Creole and international cuisine, plus a beach restaurant showcasing local flavours and focusing on locally caught fish and seafood. A new beach club bar with DJ and cocktails served by mixologists will also be launched.
Avani Barbarons Seychelles Resort is not currently open for bookings.
