The Swiss Club is to be an exclusive, luxurious hideaway on La Digue island in the Seychelles. It occupies a 22 acre estate fronting most of beautiful Anse Sévère beach. Initially it will consist of a club house and a small number of exquisite, private villas as well as a beachfront restaurant and bar. Designed and built in and amongst the stunning natural environment, the Swiss Club aims to blend its guests with nature and its rare tropical wildlife.
The villas will have a total of 10 generously proportioned guest rooms together with shared club facilities including a lounge, library, dining room, bar, garden pool, outdoor exercise machines, games room (with a snooker table), cinema room and barbecue area. The villas are located within the grounds of the estate fronting the 500m long Anse Sévère beach. The estate offers peace and tranquility in a beautiful natural setting that is well away from the relatively busy village areas of the island. Wildlife includes the extremely rare Black Paradise Flycatcher (or Veuve) – a delicate bird with a long, forked tail, giant tortoises, water fowl and large flying fox bats.
The entire project is a very real eco-tourism development, with the bulk of the land remaining in its natural state. The estate has already started a planting program to boost production of flowers, fruit and vegetables to be enjoyed by the guests. The estate is the only such development on the island and mirrors the superb work already done on the private islands.
The bar and restaurant, located on the beachfront, will offer a 50 seat all-day dining restaurant and bar as well as a 50 seat fine-dining restaurant with superb views over Praslin and the amazing sunset. The fine-dining restaurant will also be available for group bookings (e.g. weddings, engaements, birthdays etc). We will focus on modern Swiss and European foods along with Asian and Creole influences. There is to be a fine wine cellar servicing the fine-dining restaurant as well as stocks of fine whiskies, vodkas and other spirits from around the world. The two restaurants will form a grand entrance to the estate at the rear.
