Finally got round to doing my review of Kempinski from our Wedding in August this year.
We live in Seychelles, on Mahe, and had been to this resort a few times before during the day. We ended up choosing this venue to get married after another hotel majorly let us down three weeks before the wedding, by upping all the prices at the last minute.
We e-mailed Kempinski and they were able to give us an amazing, cost effective and detailed quote straight away, which was within our budget and also we could see that compared to the other hotel, they weren't making extra money off us for things like the registrar and certificates, photographer and hairdresser.
We met with Anna Pothin, one of the Sales Managers, who was amazing, answering all our questions, especially all my typical bridezilla nagging! They really put our minds at ease and were very friendly and professional. The package that we decided on was good value for money, and they were very good at sorting things out for us that we weren't sure about, for example booking the band and hairdresser.
The actual wedding day we had an amazing time, and everything went absolutely perfectly. It is a truly amazing setting, and we felt it was very private even though it was near the pool, we had our own little section. The food was amazing, the chef came and chatted to us and made sure that our guests with allergies were catered for and pointed out to them exactly what they could eat. The children were also well catered for. The hairdresser, flowers, band and photographer were all great, just what we had asked for. All the staff were so lovely and friendly, collecting us from the room in the golf cart and even helping me hide when my family wouldn't get out of the bar!
The rooms were amazing, really high quality and they have really thought about the space and how to make the most of it. Massive selection of toiletries, separate bath and shower, free beers and soft drinks in the mini bar, and the comfiest bed ever. The maid had come in while we were away and cleaned up all the 'getting ready' mess and laid slippers out. We were treated to wine, biscuits and a lovely floral arrangement on the bed when we arrived.
The next day we had a lovely breakfast, loads of choice and very courteous and friendly service. I can not recommend this venue anymore if you want a wedding in paradise in a high quality but unpretentious hotel. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions!
