Eden Bleu Hotel has opened for bookings and will welcome its first guests on 1 November.
Situated between Mahé’s international airport and the capital of Victoria, the 87-room Eden Bleu combines a city centre hotel with a boutique resort.
The hotel is built on Eden Island, a residential and commercial marina development 100 metres off the coast of Mahé. As well as its proximity to the airport and Victoria, it offers easy access to Eden Island’s international marina.
The hotel’s public areas include a sun deck and rimflow pool. The guest floors include three room types, with 74 Deluxe rooms, 12 Luxury suites and a Presidential suite.
The furnishings and finishes are modern, and the rooms offer views of the marina and Eden Island. In-room comforts include a workstation with international plug sockets, tea and coffee station with Nespresso machine, mini-bar fridge, large bathroom and separate shower, lounge area, and 24-hour room service.
The hotel’s Wi-Fi system offers fast connections. In-room Apple TV enables guests to play music, videos and other material from their devices on the 42-inch LED television, as well as access online content, the Internet and hotel services.
A digital concierge – an interactive interface – can be downloaded to a smartphone or other mobile device before arrival and provides a full spectrum of hotel services and island activities. It can be used for everything from booking boat charters or beach trips to ordering room service or extra towels.
The conference centre can accommodate 340 guests theatre-style and 250 banquet-style. It can also be divided into two separate soundproof rooms. It is equipped with three high-definition LED screens, to which presentations, HD video and other content can be broadcast wirelessly. The business centre contains workstations as well as four meeting rooms for eight to 18 people.
On the ground floor are the Marlin Bleu Restaurant and Bourgeois Bar, which lead out to the Empereur Terrace, all of which take their monikers from some of the Seychelles’ favourite fish species. The restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch.
