Embracing the southwestern coast of Mahé Island, the exquisite Anse Intendance Beach will become the idyllic backdrop for the sixth addition to the prestigious Cheval Blanc portfolio. Guests can anticipate a luxurious haven where the azure waters of the Indian Ocean seamlessly merge with the refined allure of Cheval Blanc hospitality.
The LVMH-owned hospitality brand is committed to crafting a residence that mirrors the laid-back Seychellois vibe while offering lavish amenities, an enticing blend sure to captivate enthusiasts. Architect Jean-Michel Gathy masterfully designed the hotel, paying homage to Creole traditions and celebrating the surrounding natural beauty.
Featuring 52 villas ranging from 220 to 1,950 square meters, each equipped with a private swimming pool, the accommodations boast breathtaking beachfront, hillside, or tropical jungle views. The property’s Spa Cheval Blanc will offer special Guerlain well-being rituals, along with a pool, fitness room, surf simulator, and two tennis and padel courts.
The interior design seamlessly incorporates elements of the brand's art de vivre, captivating art and aesthetic enthusiasts. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the majestic sculpture Centauresse by Prune Nourry, emerging from a pond surrounded by banyan trees, while Joël Andrianomearisoa's works grace the villa walls.
The culinary journey sees a grand five-part creative composition by the Cheval Blanc team. Mizumi, the Asian restaurant by the lake; Vivamento, the vibrant Italian venue facing the pool; and Sula, the Mediterranean beach club by the ocean, showcase diverse gastronomic delights. Le 1947, the emblematic French gastronomic restaurant, and Le White, with its cosmopolitan ambiance, add distinctive notes to this gastronomic symphony.
Cheval Blanc, which has five other properties in Paris, St. Tropez, St. Barth, Maldives and Courchevel, invites guests to discover and share exceptional moments in Seychelles' paradisiacal setting.
