Waldorf Astoria Platte Island — Photo by Hilton

A truly exclusive luxury experience, the resort will offer a collection of 59 seafront villas all equipped with private pools. Guests will have access to six restaurants and bars, a spa, kid's club, outdoor observatory, tennis courts and a marine conservation discovery centre - all within the sanctuary of Platte Island. The island itself lies just over 130km south of Mahé and is renowned as a nature lover's paradise, covered with palm forest and surrounded by a coral reef and lagoon. A small airstrip allows for access to the island from the main airport of Mahé. In an effort to create and use renewable energy as part of the resort's operation, many buildings throughout the grounds will be equipped with solar paneled roofing.
