Avani Hotels and the Minor Group have opened their first property in the Seychelles.

Following a year-long reconstruction program costing some US$8 million, the former Le Meridien Barbarons has reopened as the new Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort&Spa. The relaunch was presided over by none other than the Seychelles Vice President, Danny Faure, and also present was the Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St. Ange, with key members of his team, including the Seychelles Tourism Board CEO, Sherin Naiken, and PS for Tourism Anne Lafortune.

When he addressed those present Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, congratulated the owners of the new Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort&Spa and thanked them for the confidence they have in the Seychelles economy so clearly displayed by their recent investment. The minister went on to reassure the management and owners of the resort of their continued support.

“As we congratulate you for the opening of your property, and as we assure you of our total support for the future, it is important for us to also use this opportunity to announce that in 2016 we shall be embarking on a hotel classification exercise as our attention turns on the product.

Today, our marketing is working, but we are trailing in what we call the yield from tourism, and to rectify this we need to focus on the product and on services we provide in our country. We have to ensure we in Seychelles see our local flavor, our culture, and what we have that makes us proud, must and should be seen in our establishments.

I urge the new Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort and Spa to look at this call today and be ahead of the pack in being ready for the hotel grading drive,” Minister St.Ange said.
