A New Hotel Opens in Seychelles - L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa

L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa Seychelles

L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa is the latest addition to the Seychelles hospitality industry. The brand new boutique resort situated at the site of the previously existing Wharf Hotel, opened its doors in January 2021.

It took almost 3 years for the project to move from conception to opening.

The Marina has been upgraded to accommodate Superyachts as the Marina is a very integral part of the Resort and we anticipate our clientele to have docking requirements for Superyachts and sail boats.

The design and construction team as well as the materials and furnishings have been carefully selected to ensure that nothing is spared when it comes to providing for the comfort of our clients. The name of the game for L’Escale is barefoot luxury and ultimate comfort.

The resort is named after the term “l’escale” - French for “stopover” - that in turn was derived from the Latin word “scala”, reminiscent of the Ottoman Empire of the ports that were conquered by the Sultan. Used as a port of call to disembark boats, the modern terminology fittingly echoes the property as the ideal stopover for guests arriving by air, land, or sea.

‘’Therein lies the concept at the heart of L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa: a luxury boutique hotel where you disconnect from the rest of the world to fully connect with the beauty of the Seychelles as you explore, relax and unwind safely in our care. With our perfect location on Mahé, we aim to be known as the preferred luxury escale for your accomodation, yachting, culinary and wellness experiences,’’ explains Mr. Cyrille Carofano, General Manager of L’Escale Resort.

Centrally located on mainland Mahé in the suburbs of the charming capital of Victoria and close to Eden Island, its architecture and interior style, is reminiscent of resplendent Superyacht luxury with its clean lines and nautical touches. The Resort is the signature work of Winch Design: a London based design studio specialising in top-end design at the highest level. They have an international reputation for designing and delivering iconic projects on land, in the air and at sea, around the world. L'Escale Resort Marina & Spa marks Winch Design's debut into the luxury resort sector, with L'Escale setting the bar high for their very first boutique hotel project. Winch Design’s local counterpart in this project was Add Locus.
