Cheval Blanc confirms plans for Seychelles opening in autumn 2024

LVMH Hotel Management has announced the upcoming opening of Cheval Blanc Seychelles, the sixth property to join the Cheval Blanc brand. 

The new hotel is located on the southwestern coast of Mahé Island on Anse Intendance beach and will feature 52 villas, each with a private swimming pool and beachfront, hillside or tropical jungle views.

The property is scheduled to open in autumn 2024.

A statement from the brand said Cheval Blanc Seychelles had been designed to feel like a ‘home’ by famed architect Jean-Michel Gathy. The property is said to be an “an ode to creole traditions” and pays homage to its natural surroundings. 

A collection of exclusive pieces of art were made specifically for the property by creators including French artist Prune Nourry, Madagascan artist Joël Andrianomearisoa and young ceramist Maximilien Pellet.

Five culinary options include Mizumi, an Asian restaurant set on a lake; Italian eatery Vivamento, which faces the pool; and Mediterranean beach club Sula. Guests will also find two of Cheval Blanc’s signature concepts: French gastronomic restaurant Le 1947 and “cosmopolitan” venue Le White. 

Guests will be able to access a collection of Guerlain wellbeing rituals at the Spa Cheval Blanc, where facilities will include a pool, fitness room, surf simulator and two tennis and padel courts. 

Younger guests can also use kids’ club Carrousel, where a dedicated team will create personalised and localised experiences. 

Cheval Blanc Seychelles marks the brand’s sixth property, joining Cheval Blanc Courchevel, Cheval Blanc Randheli, Cheval Blanc St-Barth, Cheval Blanc St-Tropez and Cheval Blanc Paris, which opened in September 2021.

LVMH Hotel Management also operates the White 1921 Courchevel and the White 1921 Saint-Tropez, and owns luxury travel brand Belmond, which operates a collection of hotels, trains and boats.
