Waldorf Astoria, announces its highly anticipated debut in the Seychelles with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Seychelles Platte Island.

Waldorf Astoria Seychelle Platte Island houses an intimate collection of 50 seafront villas with personal concierge services, including one-to-three-bedroom villas as well as a master five-bedroom villa with expansive gardens. The resort combines Waldorf Astoria’s sincerely elegant service and unsurpassed luxury with Platte Island’s timeless surroundings to deliver a once-in-a-lifetime experience for sophisticated travellers.

Waldorf Astoria Platte Island’s distinct architecture and interior design blends luxury with earthy tones, stunning art, the finest furnishing, and tropical views that reflect a true sense of place – anchored by the iconic Waldorf Astoria sundial clock as a timeliness centre piece. The sundial clock was inspired by the Moulin Kopra, a Creole melting pot previously used on the island. The resort’s interiors are inspired by the coconut palm trees, while the cascading curtains strung from seashells in the lobby form a dramatic backdrop.

Inspired by the shell of the hawksbill turtle, the resort’s villas consist of faceted shapes, folding and bending, to become large airy canopies. Each villa is designed with a fan-shaped style that gives the space an ascending pitched ceiling. The villas are also sensitively set back from the shoreline and feature expansive gardens that create an undisturbed place for sea turtles to lay their eggs.

Waldorf Astoria brings its legendary culinary expertise to Seychelles Platte Island with six restaurants and bars that blend the best of international and local flavours. Celebrated Executive Head Chef Jane-Therese Mulry serves Creole-Latin fusion concepts, including tapas, oysters, and champagne, as well as delectable Asian and Mediterranean inspired cuisine against sweeping vistas of the sunset for a truly holistic culinary experience.

The Waldorf Astoria Spa is a sanctuary for your state of wellbeing, blending wellness technology with high touch therapies to deliver relaxation, rebalance and rejuvenation through individual treatments and personalised programs using sustainable ingredients such as organic seaweed, locally sourced coconut, and native plants.

Designed to nourish the body, mind and spirit in a tranquil landscape, the Waldorf Astoria Spa also provides revitalising yoga, guided meditation, and mindfulness sessions to focus on breathwork and inner balance and is supported by thermal experiences including sauna, steam, and hydrotherapy. 

The fitness centre features a Technogym workout centre, open air fitness studio for a range of fitness classes and activities, Tennis and Padel Tennis as well as outdoor activities including cycling, and jogging.
