LXR Hotels and Resorts debuts in Seychelles with the opening of Mango House

LXR Hotels and Resorts, Hilton’s collection of independent luxury properties, has announced the opening of Mango House, Seychelles, which the group describes as ‘an intimate and exclusive island oasis promising a captivating, yet refined Seychellois experience on southern Mahé’s unspoiled beachfront’.

Location

Stretching along the edge of the Anse Aux Poules Bleues, a sparkling calm bay with shallow clear waters, Mango House is nestled amongst the ‘revitalising fragrance of surrounding fruit trees’ and offers a sense of home in a private and secluded location.

Jochem-Jan Sleiffer, President, Middle East, Africa, and Turkey, Hilton, said:

We are thrilled to unveil this incredible property, which brings a truly unique guest experience to the shores of Mahé. 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.

Accommodations

Mango House consists of 41 impeccably designed guest rooms, suites, and villas offering unobstructed ocean views, adorned with distinctive natural décor echoing the rugged beauty of the Seychelles.

Dining

Mango House has five ‘world-class’ dining venues and bars.

Paying homage to the Seychelles’ fiery Creole cuisine, Moutya invites guests to enjoy succulent delicacies grilled over sustainable coconut shell charcoal, smoked, or simply oven-roasted for the ultimate casual beach dining experience.

Azi’ meaning taste and flavour, and ‘do’ meaning every time, Azide combines freshly caught seafood from local coves with the much-revered discipline of contemporary Japanese culinary art. Indulge in freshly made sushi and robatayaki while enjoying breath-taking views of the Indian ocean.

At Muse, guests are invited to celebrate Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri oeuvre in an ode to the original owner himself. Enjoy Creole and Mediterranean dining in a relaxing ambiance reminiscent of Barbieri’s work, which he describes as “the perfect balance of polished style and ease.” Expect soulful sharing plates made from market-fresh local ingredients, to be savoured among friends and family in a brasserie-style setting against the backdrop of tropical refinement.

Exotic cocktails, rums, and gin and tonics infused with ingredients inspired by the rich and diverse heritage of the locals await at Kokoye, Mango House’s Indo-Seychellois bar built on the philosophy of Root, Fruit, and Spice.

Inspired by the journey of the sun throughout the day, Soley, Mango House’s vibrant poolside bar, invites guests to sip on refreshing, tropical cocktails and savour delectable bento box treats from sunrise to sunset.

Facilities

Mango House features two outdoor swimming pools. For those looking for spectacular views or tranquility, there is the main infinity swimming pool and the other is an oval-shaped pool located next to Soley. Mango Pips is a programme specifically created for children that ‘promises to take youngsters on a journey of curiosity, education, and adventure’ while the grown-ups enjoy curated experiences that will last a lifetime, from sunset yoga sessions and trekking through Mahé’s lush green forests, to traditional rock fishing and canvas painting.

Motors sports such as kayaking and snorkelling are available. Locally sourced products can be found throughout the property, from the ingredients used in its mouth-watering delicacies to the handcrafted products at its wellness sanctuary, anpe.
