Lovely staff, terrific pool and beautiful beach. Hotel though is has been recently refurbished, is a little tired and in need of minor improvement; larger towels, new beach towel, repaving….all minor details. The spa is fantastic, the head massage had me floating for hours after and left me useless at any form of conversation. Nicely potent cocktails. Cindy, we will... More

Firstly I would like to say we got a good deal through amoma and paid 676gbp with breakfast included for 8 nights. So our stay was very good value and esp it being a luxury resort on Seychelles. The pros was the great service, they were always listening to their guests and trying to improve things for you. Whilst everyone... More

We stayed at the Avani for 5 nights. We had the most fantastic relaxing experience. With clear blue seas, white sandy beaches and great service. We were able to unwind and relax to the max. All of the staff went out of their way to be polite and helpful making the trip one of the best that we have had.

I have stayed at AVANI twice between April-June 2015. Highly recommended for personalized care and attention. Polite Staff headed by an omnipresent General manager, Manish Jha. Super Location, Fantastic Beach and Seaside Tables for the Meals are icing on the cake.

This hotel opened just recently after a long rebranding and refurbishment from the Le Meridien Barbarons Hotel. AVANI looks super modern and the design of the lobby, pool area and other public areas is very sleek, but the atmosphere is still laid back and friendly. Rooms are fresh and nicely decorated with a tropical color palette mixed local finishes. The... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights The staff were so polite & welcoming. They always remembered us, and anything we asked they provided. Usually above and beyond what we wanted-ie from a casual conversation about my recent mosquito bites, the waitress got my room sprayed by housekeeping. Great hotel, massive pool and beautiful beach. Hotel rooms were very big.... More
