Hilton Worldwide has announced the official opening of the 30-room DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda Resort & Spa, its third resort in the Republic of The Seychelles Islands.

Ideally situated on a prime beach-facing location on the Southeast coast of Mahe - Seychelles largest and best known island - DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda Resort & Spa is surrounded by 2.5 hectares of picturesque, indigenous landscaped gardens with striking views of the Indian Ocean.

"We're tremendously excited to open our first property in one of the world's primary leisure destination," says John Greenleaf, global head of DoubleTree by Hilton. "DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda Resort & Spa is an inspired addition to our global portfolio and we are confident the hotel's stunning paradise setting along with the offer of ultimate seclusion, comfort and overall well-being will prove a tantalising combination for travellers."

Nestled against a spectacular backdrop of mountains and ocean, DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda Resort & Spa features a tempting array of amenities and facilities. Guests will appreciate the complimentary wifi access from the internet lounge, the newly installed Technogym, together with the refined simplicity and quality of the ocean-facing resort restaurant and separate bar.

The 30 spacious rooms and suites all enjoy superb ocean views and, for total relaxation, guests can luxuriate in the hotel's signature spa, uniquely perched on a large granite boulder and surrounded by tropical foliage. The charm and intimacy of DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda Resort & Spa has also proven the property's romantic credentials with many couples already seeking the hotel's exclusive paradise setting as the idyllic wedding destination.

Rudi Jagersbacher, president of Hilton Worldwide Middle East & Africa, comments: "I am delighted we have added to our Seychelles portfolio with such an outstanding hotel. Along with Hilton Labriz Resort & Spa and Hilton Northolme Resort & Spa, we now have a cluster of three picture-perfect properties providing improved guest choice and now serving the needs of those seeking a more adventurous, island hopping holiday in one of the world's sought after leisure destinations."
