Hilton Worldwide’s luxury brand LXR has made its long-awaited entry to the tropical archipelago with the opening of Mango House on southern Mahé’s beachfront.
The intimate and exclusive island resort provides a refined Seychellois experience on a shore that stretches along the edge of the Anse Aux Poules Bleues bay.
A secluded beach retreat
Taking over what was originally built as a family retreat by celebrated Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri, Mango House provides a convivial setting that’s surrounded by fragrant fruit trees.
“We are thrilled to unveil this incredible property, which brings a truly unique guest experience to the shores of Mahé,” said Jochem-Jan Sleiffer, president in the Middle East, Africa and Turkey for Hilton. “Mango House sees the debut of Hilton’s luxury LXR brand to the Seychelles, joining our Hilton and DoubleTree by Hilton properties already welcoming guests, and the Waldorf Astoria and Canopy by Hilton hotels currently under development.
“The archipelago has long been a sought-after destination by discerning travellers who visit the islands for their vibrant tropical atmosphere and world-class hospitality. From immersive cultural experiences and bespoke service to locally inspired dining concepts, guests will be enamoured by all that Mango House has to offer.”
“Mango House has an abundance of captivating stories to be told and we cannot wait to share them with our guests,” added Feisal Jaffer, global head of LXR Hotels & Resorts. “Developed in harmony with its surroundings, Mango House mirrors the traditions of southern Mahé folklore, with the fascinating Seychellois culture woven into every aspect of the personalised guest experience.”
Embodying LXR’s sustainable ethos
In line with the philosophy behind all LXR properties, the hotel connects with its surroundings through sustainable measures and collaborations with the wider community. Local ingredients are also highlighted at every opportunity in both the wellness and gastronomic experience.
The retreat is home to 41 guestrooms, suites and villas with unobstructed sea views. And wellness sanctuary Anpe, which means ‘at peace’ in Creole, offers personalised treatments that embrace the power of touch in suites overlooking the Indian Ocean.
In terms of F&B, guests can choose between five restaurants and bars with locally inspired menus.
Moutya dishes up Creole cuisine grilled over coconut shell charcoal, and Azido pairs the local seafood with contemporary Japanese cooking. Creole and Mediterranean cuisine are offered at Muse in a brasserie-style setting celebrating the photographer who built Mango House. This is complemented by Indo-Seychellois bar Kokoye, and poolside bar Soley, which specialises in cocktails and bento boxes.
The property’s spectacular views can be taken in from the oval-shaped pool of Soley or from the main infinity pool. Families and friends travelling as a group also have the opportunity to book the largest villa in the Seychelles, known as Cliff House, bringing together 13 rooms and a private elevated pool.
