Cheval Blanc continues its international development with the opening of Cheval Blanc Seychelles in the heart of the Indian Ocean in autumn 2024. Along the southwestern coast of Mahé Island, Anse Intendance beach offers a sweeping, pristine setting that will soon be home to the sixth Cheval Blanc Maison.
A contemporary refuge conceived by Jean-Michel Gathy
Conceived as a “Home”, the newest Cheval Blanc was designed by the architect Jean-Michel Gathy as an ode to creole traditions and paying homage to its natural surroundings. The Maison will offer 52 villas spanning 220 to 1,950 square meters, each with a private swimming pool, and beautiful beachfront, hillside, or tropical jungle views.
An Epicurean destination: the Cheval Blanc art de vivre
Cheval Blanc Seychelles gives pride of place to artists, with special pieces made specifically for this location. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the majestic sculpture Centauresse by Prune Nourry, which rises from a pond among the banyan trees. On the walls of each villa, works by the Madagascan artist Joël Andrianomearisoa appear like a hymn to the generosity of luxuriant Nature and find an echo in the pastel-hued walls of the restaurant Le White. With a nod to Italian influences, the young ceramist Maximilien Pellet celebrates the conviviality of grand Etruscan banquets in an immense glazed ceramic fresco that presides over the bar at Vivamento, facing the pool. Each detail, every material, and each work of art creates a permanent dialogue between tropical inspirations and a contemporary spirit.
The culinary arts are revealed in a five-part creative composition by the Cheval Blanc team: Mizumi, the Asian restaurant by the lake; Vivamento, the vibrant Italian facing the pool; Sula, the Mediterranean beach club by the ocean. Also here are the brand’s signature concepts: Le 1947, the emblematic French gastronomic restaurant, and Le White, with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Each is like a musical score in its own right, for discovering and sharing.
The Seychelles Maison also offers a collection of Guerlain well-being rituals at the Spa Cheval Blanc, a pool, a fitness room, a surf simulator and two tennis and padel courts.
Made-to-measure moments for guests of all ages
Youngest guests are invited to discover the wonderful world of the Carrousel, a haven for little pirates in search of adventure and discovering Nature. And every day, the Cheval Blanc team curate personalised and localised experiences for all guests.
