Spent 4 days at this resort while in the Seychelles on business. I wish I had more time to relax and enjoy everything this beautiful resort has to offer. Check in was speedy and the staff was first rate! I arrived early in the morning and the room wasn't ready yet, but the staff offered me the opportunity to freshen up using the shower facilities in the workout room while securing my luggage until the room was ready. I spent the rest of the day relaxing in the sun and in the pool. The beach is just a few feet from the resort rooms, in fact my room opened to the beach front. The staff will walk you around the resort and explain everything that is available. Breakfast in the the main restaurant is a buffet style, however if it's not included in the room rate can be rather pricey, IMHO. Breakfast was not included in my room rate. The location on the west side of the island is an interesting ride from the capital and port area, it takes 30-45 minutes to travel to and from. This is due to the poor road infrastructure outside of the capital area. The grounds are kept in immaculate condition. The rooms were very clean and well stocked. This is not a "party" destination, it's more for families and couples who just want to relax and have privacy.

I'm not sure how anyone could rate this place as poor or terrible! Food was priced as we expected it to be being that this is a Kempinski Resort. The hotel is about half an hour from the airport and they do provide a shuttle(125 Euros for 4 people) or you can get a taxi. We opted for the latter because we like to see the places that we travel through the eyes of a local. They speak Creole in the Seychelles and our taxi driver gave us a guided tour on the way to the hotel, it was awesome :)
The hotel itself was clean, the check in was easy and informative. We were upgraded to a beach view room without asking and then taken by golf cart to our room. We had our four year old daughter with us and they made the couch into a bed for her which was perfect. We walked out our back door, across the grass and then emerged through the bushes and *aaahhhhhhhh paradise found!!* The beach and the bay are beautiful with a reef which we did some snorkelling on. When the tide is high there isn't much beach to be had but there is an olympic length salt water pool at the main building. Snorkelling equipment is on hand at the hotel and so are kayaks. The beach was clean and well looked after and we had a blast!
The food was quite fabulous. We ate at the buffet and the pool bar and enjoyed our meals at both. I personally didn't have one thing that wasn't delicious the entire weekend. The breakfast buffet was one of the nicer ones I've ever encountered and our waiter Dipresh went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and cared for.
Our daughter developed a nasty ear infection and fever on the last night and the hotel was great in helping us get medication, a trip to the nurse and then they called ahead to the medical clinic to tell them we were coming. Check out was just as easy as check in, room service was prompt, friendly and tasty and housekeeping did an amazing job of clearing out the sand we tried really hard NOT to track in.
All in all, it was a lovely long weekend in the Seychelles and I would highly recommend the Kempinski Resort if you want relaxation, chilled out atmosphere and great service.
Also, if you go to Mahe, make sure to check out Victoria. It is a very laid back town with a chilled out vibe (think Sayalita in Mexico if you know where that is!!)

Room Tip: Beach view is pretty awesome :)

We stayed at the Kempinski for 5 nights and have to admit that it was a really fantastic hotel. The location is beautiful on a nice stretch of beach, but make sure to bring shoes for the water because there is a lot of coral/rocks. The beachfront rooms are quite spacious and with a sunken lounge area created a nice sense of space. You need to rent a car to be able to get around the island and it is not the type of place you want to be stuck. We were a bit put off by the price of the buffet dinner (65 Euros p.p.) and didn't realise until later that you could have a la carte by the pool until 7pm.

Dear Collin Class,

Thank you for taking time in posting your comment on Tripadvisor regarding your October stay at Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare.

We are pleased to have you in our care; we are happy that you had a fantastic vacation and are grateful for the compliments on our beachside rooms.
However, we are sorry to hear that you found the prices of our food expensive , this is since almost all of the items have been imported and flown into the country that prices are a bit high not for us but everywhere in the country.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family back in the resort.

Very best regards,

Jean-Marc Michel .

This is a nice Hotel, great atmosphere, Wonderful Services.. but far away from everywhere!! Very far! Transportation in Seychelles is very Expensive..mainly Taxis..and I do think that it does not worthy that much, and looks like that they are transforming Seychelles in a "Rich Paradise" and there is no notion of money.
Kempinski is nice, but food is Extremely expensive..Breakfast buffet is EUR65 ( euros), one burger + a soft dring in the bar cost USD50.. I have never paid USD50 in a burger and Soft Drink..It is a kind of insane!! I did not enjoy much Seychelles..If you want a great vacation I strong suggest you to Go to Thailand...It will be cheaper and you have much more to do, and food are good and cheaper in any 5 star hotels.

Room Tip: Lake view is good.. better than hills view.. Ocean View.. Nothing special..

The hotel is more than great. Rooms, bed, service, cleanliness, food, absolutely everything.
A highly recommend it and while you are there definitely try the fresh orange juice, nothing like you've ever tasted before. Don't forget to bring water shoes.
