It is hard to believe but the best saltwater resort in the world just got better. For the season starting October 1st, 2016, all the beach bungalows and villas at Alphonse Island, Seychelles will be completely refurbished.
The theme of the refurbishment reflects the ongoing commitment to embrace local creole style with that of the barefoot luxury sought on private islands. Featuring a range of sandalwood colors and incorporating local materials, the interim design concept has reflected in a sophisticated fresh, island style of the 21st Century. In addition to the Beach Bungalows and Beach Villas, an overhaul of the Beach Bar & Restaurant took place and includes distinctive characteristics inspired by the island, beach and ocean.
