Surrounded by lush gardens dotted with swaying palms, the Avani Seychelles Barbarons is a laid-back beach retreat on Mahé’s quiet west coast. The decor stays true to its tropical setting; the bright and breezy guestrooms feature sand-colored walls and sea-green throws and rugs, and they all come with a private patio or a balcony overlooking the garden, pool or ocean. The private white sand beach is sheltered by a lagoon, and there’s an outdoor pool to relax by. Active types can take advantage of the tennis courts, fitness center or yoga classes. The dining options range from casual to formal: Try Gravity for shisha and cocktails, or Tamarind for authentic pan-Asian flavors. For something a little different, book a private meal right on the beach, or learn the art of Creole cuisine by taking part in a cooking class taught on-site.
In the Area
You’ll find dozens of postcard-perfect beaches nearby, including Grand Anse, which offers turquoise waters, beach sports and horseback riding, plus a traditional market at dusk. This popular area also offers lots of culinary delights; try Chez Plume for freshly caught grilled fish and delicious salads. Over on the island’s east coast, the city of Victoria is home to the National Botanical Garden, which is full of tropical birds and a large rainforest canopy. For a Robinson Crusoe fix, Anse Intendance, on the island’s southwest coast, is a spectacularly deserted white sand beach that is regularly named the best in the Seychelles. Grab a drink at the handy rum bar and watch the sun set on another day in paradise.

We chose Seychelles simply because of visa on arrival and then Avani as it was affordable and reviews were great. We loved every minute of our four days. Arrival to departure Atmosphere is so relaxed and everyone so smiling and always ready to help. Almira who showed us our room is very good and sent us wine and got nice decoration on our bed as we mentioned that we were on honeymoon. Views from our balcony was so peaceful and soothing that it can only experienced and then understood. Food was very good. Lots of selection at breakfast and buffet in evenings were nice. Their Thai restaurant food was super tasty too. Big chef met us and asked we want something out of buffet he will be happy to do it. But we never needed it as we loved the food. Cannon at bar was very interactive and skilled. Made our evening pleasant and drunk. Hotel is on very isolated beach however sea was rough. We also became fan of Mr. Khan who is so friendly and could not have done enough for us. He became very close to both of us. I Dont know how but he Is always there from morning till night. Always energetic and never see him in rush. He almost meets everybody with same smile all the time. The way hotel loves its guests shows that he is a great manager
Resort is nice with comfortable rooms and huge bathroom. Bars & Restaurant serve good food , there is no possibility to dine outside hotel but that makes the place so quiet. Beach is amazing : empty, long, with lots of shade from trees
Excellent staff and support. The location is great and staff are very responsive. Recommend to everyone who wants to have a great experience in Mahe Seychelles.
The resort is located on a very perfect location.
Special thanks to Mr Javed Khan (operations manager) as he is very humble and corporative person.
We enjoyed our holiday at the resort. It's a great place to relax and it is very quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was goods. A little spicy. Bedroom was nicely furnished. Very clean. We had a room at the first floor with a very nice ocean view. In all, we recommend this resort for those want to forget the stress.
