My wife and I spent five nights at this resort on the last leg of our South Africa/Seychelles honeymoon. We had a hilltop villa and were astounded at the view on arrival: it was incredible! Lush jungle and tall cliffs all around, with Petite Anse a perfect sliver of white sand at the bottom of the bay - just fantastic.
The villas are very well furnished and huge inside and out - the gazebo and the pool area are particularly impressive. We spent most of the days sunbathing, swimming in our pool and gazing at THAT VIEW!
We ate in the resort each night. Overall the food was good, but not great. The buffet night at Kannel restaurant was excellent, but the a la carte was a bit disappointing as the small portions left us quite hungry after the meal. The Zez sushi lounge is a great option to have, but could be expanded to make it more of a restaurant in itself. We also had a meal in our villa. The staff did a great job of setting up a lovely romantic table on the verandah, but the food itself was quite ordinary considering the price. Dining is definitely something the hotel should look to improve, as it doesn't meet the high standards set by the rest of the resort.
The spa, on the other hand, was just fantastic - you couldn't get a better location and the treatments are wonderful. Enjoying a post-massage bath watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean is something we will never forget.
Finally, it's worth mentioning that the staff really do go out of their way to make your stay perfect. As an example, the barman at Kannel bar let us stay after the bar closed to finish our game of pool and even arranged for room service to send us some more Seybrew beers - really impressive service!
All in all this is a great place and a holiday you'll never forget. One final tip - the Creole mojitos at Kannel bar are definitely worth a try!
