Two new hotels will open in the Seychelles by 2023, Hilton confirmed this week. Judging from the first images, the brand is not skimping on luxury.

Hilton announced that the brand had signed management agreements to bring its iconic luxury brand Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and lifestyle brand Canopy by Hilton to the Seychelles. Other developments include soon-to-be-opened Mango House Seychelles and LXR Hotels & Resorts.

Vice President, Development, Middle East & Africa, Hilton Carlos Khneisser revealed why they were investing in more properties in Seychelles.

"Seychelles remains unquestionably one of the world’s most desirable destinations for the discerning traveller. We are proud of the role our teams have played in the sustainable development of Seychelles, and these new additions, coupled with Mango House Seychelles and LXR Hotels & Resorts will give our guests an unprecedented range of world-class experiential options to choose from when planning what is sure to be an unforgettable visit," said Khneisser.

He also shared a glimpse of what travellers can expect with the two new establishments.

At Waldorf Astoria Platte Island, dubbed as a "truly exclusive luxury experience" guests can choose between the 59 seafront villas boasting private pools. Other amenities include six restaurants and bars, a spa, kid’s club, outdoor observatory, tennis courts and a marine conservation discovery centre- all within the sanctuary of Platte Island. Located over 130km south of Mahé, the island is covered with palm forest and surrounded by a coral reef and lagoon. Guests arrive via a small plane from Mahe and land on a small airstrip where they will be whisked away to their villa.

The brand said in a statement that buildings throughout the grounds feature solar panelled roofing.

At Canopy by Hilton Mahé, located on Mahé’s Anse à la Mouche beach, guests can enjoy 120 locally inspired guest rooms and space to accommodate intimate meetings and events. The brand will develop the facilities of the surrounding beach, including a boutique shopping village.
