Let us have a look more intently at this opportunity.
Climate and Seasons
Seychelles unique climate with a temperature oscillating between 26 ° and 31 °all year and the absence of cyclones are assets which are envied by the most renowned tropical islands. For the majority of another exotic places weather can be an obvious problem. Paradise can seem anything but, if there's a hurricane or tropical storm with damaging winds and dangerous squalls bearing down.
Seychelles never face this problem. Most of the islands activities can be enjoyed 365 days per year.

Price for owning the piece of paradise
The offers are not all as pricey as you might presume. Of course, buying of the whole a large and sandy tropical island might be costy. But even this is still realistic! Moreover there is a vast choice of land plots of different size, location, beachfront and not, boasting unique ocean views, possibilities of resort development, villas/ houses construction, small and bigger hotels in operation etc.
The majority of the properties are located on the islands of Mahe, Praslin, Cerf, La Digue.
A question of privacy
An island might sound like the perfect place to get away from the stresses of life on the mainland, but too much privacy can be stifling for some people. In Seychelles both options can be easily combined. There is the selection of the properties where you will enjoy absolute privacy but still being located close not far to main infrastructure where you can enjoy active life and socializing.
To start a new hotel or to proceed with existing one?
In Seychelles there is the choice of hotels in operation which you can buy and continue keeping as business, or to reorganize the management, to renovate etc. Or you have the option to buy the land which has never been developed, with no existing road access etc. and to develop the property yourself according to your project. It will take longer period of time to receive all approvals and permissions.

Full service idea
Food and beverage, meeting and banquet? Maybe you're launching not one venture (a hotel) but two (with that restaurant), maybe three (if there's a lounge), and it acquires that many more degrees of complexity. Meetings and banquets? Make it four. A spa? One more. A resort location? The possibilities are endless.
If one, two, or even all of the above work for you, if you can organize it all and hold it all together, great. But complex things that work well usually start out as simple things that work well: this includes a hotel management.
If you have no hotel management experience, it is possible to find someone who does. A hotel must be managed with skill and intentionality by people who know what they' are doing.
You need to know who your ideal guest is, a lot of the time it will be an overseas visitor wanting to see and learn more about the country they’re visiting.
The main questions you should be asking yourself include:
- Is the location desirable?
- Is the property the right size?
- Is the decor in good shape or does it need upgrading?
- What type of guests stay here?
- How soon would renovations be required?
