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.
How to Get There
We were driving around the island and experiencing some thunderous weather. Looking for a break from driving in the rain we visited this hotel. Very welcoming staff, great service, lovely atmosphere with fantastic DJ in the lounge area giving a warm and positive vibe to the hotel. Despite the weather we had a great visit and felt recharged ready to continue our tour.
Amazing holiday resort!
We have just returned from an 11 day stay at AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa.
Our intention was to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life in a big city - London, UK and this resort met this goal perfectly.
The resort is on the west side of the island, which is quiet compared to Victoria, but that's what we wanted, and in Mahé you can't really consider anything far.
All the staff were friendly, very accommodating and were determined that our visit to the Seychelles would be an amazing experience. Many thanks to Maria from the Element restaurant. An amazing person with a beautiful character and personality. The restaurant supervisor and the whole team made our stay unforgettable.
The rooms are spacious and well-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We personally occupied room 125. I think there is no better place than its location. The facilities at the resort are also excellent, especially the large (and deep) pool for those who do not like the beach, which is literally at your fingertips.
The food was amazing, and the combination of both restaurants covers a wide range of cuisines, and some evenings are dedicated to specific cultural events from around the world. Beef steak and tuna steak are really amazing. I highly recommend.
All this is considered the perfect resort for those who want to get away from the crowds and enjoy everything that Mahé has to offer. It also has a reasonable price for Seychelles.
Warm greetings to the whole team from cold London today.
We had our wedding in AVANI Hotel and everything was perfect. Staff was very professional. Location of the hotel is fantastic. Food also was surprisingly good. We couldn't expect better wedding do to fantastic nature of Seychelles and professional and friendly staff in Avani hotel.
