Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa

Seychelles, Indian Ocean

The hotel

A colourful hideaway offering a great atmosphere and fantastic views of the Indian Ocean. The 25-metre long swimming pool is one of the main attractions in the heart of this low rise resort. The Gravity bar has a shisha lounge upstairs, with cocktails, music and beach views. The stylish décor blends cool whites, warm woods, and turquoise details echoing the ocean waters. And there are beachside barbecues and waterfront dining venues. The AVANI also gives a taste of the rest of the Seychelles, with tamarind from the north infusing everything from ice creams to champagne rum cocktails. This is the complete island experience.

Amazing holiday resort! We have just returned from an 11 day stay at AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa. Our intention was to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life in a big city - London, UK and this resort met this goal perfectly. The resort is on the west side of the island, which is quiet compared to Victoria, but that's what we wanted, and in Mahé you can't really consider anything far. All the staff were friendly, very accommodating and were determined that our visit to the Seychelles would be an amazing experience. Many thanks to Maria from the Element restaurant. An amazing person with a beautiful character and personality. The restaurant supervisor and the whole team made our stay unforgettable. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We personally occupied room 125. I think there is no better place than its location. The facilities at the resort are also excellent, especially the large (and deep) pool for those who do not like the beach, which is literally at your fingertips. The food was amazing, and the combination of both restaurants covers a wide range of cuisines, and some evenings are dedicated to specific cultural events from around the world. Beef steak and tuna steak are really amazing. I highly recommend. All this is considered the perfect resort for those who want to get away from the crowds and enjoy everything that Mahé has to offer. It also has a reasonable price for Seychelles. Warm greetings to the whole team from cold London today. Read less

Right on the ocean! Not very good swimming in most of the beach due to rocks. No potable tap water. Only 1 litre of complimentary bottled water per day. As for me, if you cannot provide me with potable drinking water, you should not charge me for the water with my meals. Other drinks were outrageously expensive, causing me to patronize the small… Read more
