Perched above the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean, Au Fond de Mer View is an intimate self-catering hotel set in a tropical paradise. The hotel features several large apartments with luxurious furnished terraces for taking in the ocean view. Each apartment is modern and vibrantly decorated, and all come with a kitchen, dining area, air conditioning, bathroom with shower, TV, and sofa. One- and two-bedroom apartments are available. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the capital, Victoria, and about 20 minutes away from Seychelles International Airport.
The hotel is situated on a hillside overlooking Anse Royale Bay, and the long white-sand beach that rings the bay is one of the best on Mahe. A coral reef protects the lagoon in the bay, so it's safe to swim here all year long, and the reef attracts an incredible array of tropical reef fish. If you're a snorkeling enthusiast, this is the place for you! The hotel is also within walking distance to local grocery stores, banks, and restaurants. If you want to cook in your apartment, picking up groceries in the area will be easy, and there are plenty of restaurants nearby if you want to have a meal out.
The owner of Au Fond de Mer View, Mrs. Solana, is extremely personable. If you have questions about things to do in the area, renting a car, using the bus, or anything else, she goes out of her way to help you. Her care and attention to detail will be obvious throughout your stay at the hotel, and knowing that someone local is looking out for you can turn a pleasant vacation into a truly memorable one.
