By Paul Joseph

The Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa, one of the Indian Ocean’s most popular destinations for luxury travellers has reopened after a$14 million refurbishment.

Situated along the west coast of Mahé, the largest island of the Seychelles, the resort opens onto the idyllic Barbarons Beach to offer stunning ocean views for miles around.

However, much more than a beach lover’s paradise, the resort combines a European heritage style, with accommodation, leisure activities and dining options all designed with every age and travel style in mind

A total of 124 guest rooms and suites each feature a balcony or terrace with garden, pool or ocean views, with a choice of five room types, including options with easy access to the spa and sandy beach.

Guests who appreciate space and deluxe amenities can opt for the Avani Ocean View Suite, which boasts double the room size and the extra pleasures of a lounge, and stunning coastal vistas from the large balcony.

Other notable amenities include two restaurants accompanied by pool and shisha bars, as well as private dining.

Avani Hotels & Resorts was launched in 2011, offering relaxed comfort and contemporary style in city and resort destinations. The brand currently has 13 properties in operation in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Seychelles, Mozambique, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Zambia, with a pipeline of further openings in Asia and the Indian Ocean.
