“Amazing location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Thank you for the great stay, you made it wonderful.
The location is amazing, the property itself looks great after a deep renovation... It looks very promising!!!
Keep it up.
Just one take away: we discovered only the last day about the spa, please promote it more.

We have just returned from a 1 week stay at AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa. The resort has just reopened under new management (AVANI) and after what looks to be an extensive refurbishment and renovation.

Our intention was to get away from all the hustle and bustle of normal life and this resort served that purpose perfectly. It's located on the western side of the island which is quiet compared to Victoria but this is exactly what we wanted plus nothing can be really considered far away in Mahé.

All the staff were friendly, very accommodating and were determined to make our visit to the Seychelles an amazing experience. Manish, Jude, Ashley, James and the whole team made our stay very memorable.

The rooms are spacious and well equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. The resort facilities are also excellent especially the large (and deep) swimming pool for those that don't fancy the beach which is also literally on the doorstep. The Gym is also well equipped.

The food was amazing and the combination of both restaurants cover a wide range of cuisines with some nights being dedicated to specific cultural events from around the globe. Personally I found the wine selection to be slightly limited but that seems to be the norm in the Seychelles and it's also forgivable considering the resort has just reopened.

All things considered this is a excellent resort for those that want to escape the crowds and enjoy everything Mahé has to offer. It is also reasonably priced for the Seychelles.

We have already decided that we will be returning sometime very soon.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2014

My family and I decided to go off the beaten track and go to the Seychelles. People keep on referring to the place as a honeymooner’s paradise (which most probably is), however, we found it to be extremely accommodating for families as well. The hotel was fully prepared for the requirements of the little ones, a kids club, and overall accommodating to the needs of families. There isn’t a kid’s pool, but when you have an amazing beach like the one we had, you would never go to the pool. The room service was excellent, and the size of the room was amazing. The view from the room was breathtaking. The ceiling creaked a little under the pouring rain, but that just added to the magic and splendor of the place. I would go there again in a heartbeat.

Right from the location, to the lighting to the entire set up and food... the place is just wonderful and transports you to a different world altogether.

I am glad we picked this place up for our honeymoon. Food is lip-smacking and nothing goes below expectations rather it all supersedes.

The spa is also one great place to explore and avail. Apart from other amenities, the hotel admin made a lot other honeymoon deals available to us.

Kudos!
