My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in june and loved it. The hotel layout as you enter the lobby is beautiful due to the views you see. We checked in quickly and were offered drinks and a towel, which is always good. We were shown around and then taken to our room. The rooms are fine, but I would say that they are slightly dated. The shower tray reminds me of an old school shower and the the sofa in the living area looked and felt uncomfortable. The rooms do need some TLC. The pool area was fine, but it can get quite busy, kids in and out, ball games. Which can be annoying but not a massive hindrance. I wish they did have separate pool areas for adults.
Food is exceptional and the staff were fantastic. Helpful, caring, take time to speak to you. It is expensive to eat but as everything is imported, I can see why. Overall great stay, enjoyed ourselves

Dear 466klaudiag

Thank you for your incredibly kind words and for sharing such a heartfelt review of our hotel. I am so glad that your stay in paradise was everything you hoped it would be.

It sounds as if you two enjoyed an activity-packed trip, and made the most of every facility we have to offer! It is wonderful that you had the opportunity to hike to the summit of "Mount Kempinski", as this experience is unique to our hotel and is very popular with our (adventurous) guests. This breathtaking experience begins with a short hike through dense jungle to a vast granite elevation overlooking the bay, with stunning views of Baie Lazare and the resort below. It is not to be missed!

I will be sure to share your glowing feedback with Sudipta, Sher and Gabby - I have no doubt that they will be delighted to hear from you.

I hope that it is not too long before we are able to welcome you back to our hotel, once again. Happy travels!

Best regards,
Masami Egami

Our stay at the Kempinski Seychelles was as lovely as it could be. We've rarely have had that kind of experience and we felt pampered all through our stay. We'd like to say a huge thank you to the team who outdid themselves to make our stay pleasant and memorable. The food was delicious wherever you had it. Fresh and exquisitely prepared. Small attentions and details make the difference. Achille who welcomed us upon arrival and who did the best of jobs going to buy the Takamaka rum for us. Alexandra who did a great job at our check-in. Marija, Lavinia (Lady in Red) and Christa upon check out. The staff at the Planters Lounge and bar were at their best too, no matter how many Virgin Coladas my better half could order in an evening. Thanks to Nishanta, Antonio, Sudipta, Gaby and her warm smile and how they all went an extra mile for us. Suzy, the lady of the Housekeeping who did our room nicely every evening. The IRD was exceptional too. Order and you are served in a matter of time. Thanks to Micheal too whom we met upon check-in. Pleasant guy.

However it happened to have had a few fails. The service at the Windsong, every time we went there was not so satisfying.They tend to forget you once they get caught in their passionate conversations. We can understand that when the restaurant gets crowded, it's difficult to manage but when they are all smiles and charming to certain guests, and they simply forget others, its just not pleasant. And just another red card to the Cafe Lazare breakfast team. Seems that once you become a familiar guest, you are not important anymore. Ask 3 times for a cup of coffee. Please guys, make an effort.

Just another small point, if you could have some french speaking therapist at the Spa, would be more than welcomed.

These mishaps put aside, we did have a lovely stay in this resort. We are definitely going back. Already in the pipeline. Thanks you so much.
