Hilton Debuts Iconic Waldorf Astoria Luxury Brand in Seychelles

Waldorf Astoria, Hilton’s iconic luxury hotel brand, announces today its highly anticipated debut in the Seychelles with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Seychelles Platte Island.

Waldorf Astoria Seychelles 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 Seychelles 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. 

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.

An idyllic haven offering an enchanted escape from the ordinary, Platte Island earned its name as a nod to its flat typography and forested sandy cay in the outer islands of the Seychelles. It serves as a home to migratory seabirds and turtles - all of which are protected by their own lagoon and coral reefs. 

Only in the Seychelles are the exotic fruit coco de mer found.  Its unusual double-coconut shape is referenced and abstracted in the design of the spa, lending sensuous curves to embrace the pristine and natural setting. 

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.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
