Just a half an hour drive from the Airport, the hotel offer free parking for cars. 

Overall the “Staff” is very helpful !!

"Javed" is the Manager at the hotel, he is a boon to this hotel, just does not say no for any, he helped us get food cooked out of the set menu, just reach out to him for any requirements.

If "Mary" is serving food then you will have a very humble and kind experience, she has a good knowledge about “how the said dish is cooked” and delivers a customer experience.   

Our Romantic by the beach dinner was an experience. 

The beach area at the hotel offers snorkelling experience, you can be stress free and just dive in the sea as "Alex" the lifeguard is always on a watch. Sea life is good a lot of tropical fishes, we got lucky to see an octopus which was later caught by a local fisherman,  

The pool area is just perfect for a SunTAN. 

The Excursions companies sit right at the lobby area, they are be a bit expensive to book but it easy to book excursions at the hotel. You can write to me if you need to book hotel/package/excursions/car rental, etc. at Seychelles (husainsufail@gmail.com), will connect you to the travel company I booked.

The hotel has a SPA and Gym also. We tried the Cabana SPA experience by the beach, “a must try”.

Feedback :  The in-room, dining menu is very limited, a little more options would just make it perfect.

We stayed for 10 days in this very nice hotel. The beachfront is just great and good for snorkeling activity. You can relax on the beach or at the swimming pool. You can also enjoy the gym facility or tennis court.
Food is convenient with a complete and generous breakfast.
We had a sea view room with a nice balcony which we would recommend.
Welcoming staff that showed a lot of attention during our stay. Our thanks to Steve at the reception and Marie Paul at the breakfast.

Room tip: Sea view rooms on the first floor

We went on our honeymoon to Seychelles.
Avani is the place to stay. The serene view from the property is enough to make you feel in heaven. Kudos to the team on ground. They made our stay very special.

We heard a lot of good things about this hotel so we wanted to see for ourselves! The view didn’t disappoint but The hotel itself needs a lot of remodeling, spa area needs work as well! A bit disappointed about the room since we just got married, was expecting something different. Food menu sort of regular and not worth the price, even their special buffets, needs improvement! But we enjoyed the sun, the beach, our last day which was yesterday, there was a DJ playing in the middle of the day and he was awesome! Good day to end the trip, but will not come back in the same hotel tho

Dear babbeec,

Thank you very much for taking your time to review our hotel on Tripadvisor.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the beach, sun and the newly implemented daily entertainment which receives generally very good feedback. We have taken note of your comments in regards to the room and already planned further preventive maintenance work after the current peak season is finishing to maintain our facilities and rooms. Shortly, we will also change the buffet settings and theme nights to offer an improved meal experience.

We look forward to welcome you back in the future.

Tropical regards,

Benjamin

Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. My heart sank when I seen the room. Not what I pictured and not at all like the pictures on the web. Rooms are very dark and dated and need decorated. The beach setting is lovely and the pool is nice but the sun loungers by the pool were so uncomfortable. There was renovation going on that we weren’t told about so one of the out door relaxation areas was closed as well. The drilling was lovely to listen to while relaxing! Food is nice in the buffet but we booked half board in order to try the Asian restaurant. They offered one set menu with no options and it was bad. Alcohol is also very expensive here in comparison to other places we stayed. A small beer for example was twice the price of a lovely hotel we stayed in after in Praslin. My advice would be don’t stay here if you are a couple. It’s ok for family holidays but I’d say it’s a very good 2 star or basic 3 star by European standards.
