Tribute Portfolio Makes Its Debut in Seychelles

Tribute Portfolio is making its debut in the Seychelles with the opening of laïla, Seychelles, a Tribute Portfolio Resort. The resort is located close to Anse Royal, the white sandy beach on the Southeastern coast of Mahé, the Seychelles’ largest island.

Each of the resort’s 76 guestrooms are decorated with nature-inspired esthetics, including a mural of the Seychelles’ plant silhouette, hand-woven macramé bed board, and room separator made with wood and rattan, the natural materials often used in the island’s traditional architecture. In addition, families and groups of friends can choose from the resort’s eight boutique suites, including the Senior Suite with a private plunge pool and private terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean and surrounding mountains.

There's also a water sports center, outdoor swimming pool, 24/7 gym, spa, barbershop, and kids’ recreation area. Guests can take part in curated village experiences, including Creole cooking classes, traditional weaving demonstrations, and evenings dancing around the bonfire to traditional Moutya music. Guests looking to live like a local can additionally join insiders on day trips to explore the village market, embark on a fishing trip, hike through the jungle, or take expeditions to neighboring islands arranged by native experts. Other experiences available range from sunrise yoga, jogging along the resort’s tropical trails and jewelry making using foraged shells, to such water sports as paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkeling at the famous uninhabited ‘Ile Souris’ coral island, which is frequented by an array of coral fish and sea turtles.
