A truly exclusive luxury experience, the resort will offer a collection of 59 seafront villas all equipped with private pools. Guests will have access to six restaurants and bars, a kids’ club, outdoor observatory, tennis courts and a marine conservation discovery center – all within the sanctuary of Platte Island.

The Waldorf Spa will offer a serene destination for holistic wellbeing, featuring six treatment rooms, a beauty salon, hammam, spa suite and serene outdoor spaces. All will blend harmoniously to offer guests an unparalleled spa experience.
The island itself lies just over 130 km south of Mahé and is renowned as a nature lover’s paradise, covered with palm forest and surrounded by a coral reef and lagoon. A small airstrip allows for access to the island from the main airport of Mahé. In an effort to create and use renewable energy as part of the resort’s operation, many buildings throughout the grounds will be equipped with solar panelled roofing.
In another development on the Seychelles islands, Hilton is also opening this year a Canopy by Hilton Mahé, located on Mahé’s Anse à la Mouche beach. The resort will offer 120 locally inspired guest rooms and space to accommodate more intimate meetings and events.
