Design concept: L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa, The Seychelles
A luxurious 25-key resort featuring a spa, Creole-inspired dining and a private marina for superyachts is the focus for our latest TOPHOTELDESIGN exclusive.
Winch Design, Bo Steiber Lighting Design and Landmark Studios all played a part in the creation of this beautiful property, which also sourced products from Spa Supply Solutions, Hansgrohe and Kaldewei.
A luxury stopover
L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa opened in January 2021 and its distinctive name, L’Escale, represents the port of call or ‘stopover’ of seafarers in ancient times. This idea is reflected in the way that the property, featuring the architecture and interiors of Winch Design and verdant landscape design of Landmark Studios, welcomes voyagers in the modern era.
Thanks to its location on the island of Mahé, the resort is ideally located for travellers to explore the Seychelles, and is home to just 25 rooms, suites and villas. Bo Steiber Lighting Design worked on the lighting design, while Spa Supply Solutions, Hansgrohe and Kaldewei contributed products to the stylish scheme.
Altogether, this chic modern retreat comprises a collection of mountain-view and ocean-view rooms, suites and villas, as well as a penthouse, with wood and white interiors integrating natural materials and references to its coastal setting, such as coral. This is complemented by F&B venues L’Escale Lounge and Restaurant, serving international cuisine with a Creole touch, and the Pool Bar, for drinks and bites to eat with views over neighbouring Eden Island.
Wellness is a big focus here, with an array of amenities on offer at Eden Holistic Spa, where the healing power of water is incorporated into the tranquil space’s design. Guests will be able to unwind across an impressive range of facilities, from a heated infinity pool and Jacuzzi to a hammam and sauna.
Notably, the hotel also has its own private marina, designed to complement its natural surroundings. Capable of hosting 19 vessels, with a maximum length of 100 metres, this makes it the only hotel in the Seychelles that can accommodate superyachts
