The resort features 87 private villas, set on a 220-hectare private island, surrounded by one of the Seychelles’ marine parks. Once the redevelopment project is complete the resort will reopen its doors with 295 rooms..
Jean Louis Pismont, the New Mauritius Hotels group operations manager, said, “this new initiative of our group is yet another testimony of our continued and flawless belief in the Seychelles tourism industry.”
Maurice Loustau-Lalanne, the Seychelles’ Minister for Tourism, said that this is good news for the local tourism industry which is the top contributor to the island nation’s economy.
“This is not only a complete refurbishment of the Beachcomber Seychelles Sainte Anne Resort & Spa but also a substantial upgrade of the hotel to a five-star property,” said Loustau-Lalanne. The upgrade will also bring “an increase of 208 new rooms and provide employment to some 500 staff,” the minister added.
