The electric system was dodgy with frequent brownouts, and there was an infrequent hot water supply. We were sometimes awakened in the night by coconuts falling off trees onto our tin roof. We shared the room with a family of green geckos and a hostile community of ants. Claims that the islands were almost devoid of creepy crawlers and species of the Order Rodentia turned out to be fiction. On our very first night we were alarmed by one of their mangy ilk trying to escape from inside our toilet.
The Seychellois hotel workers avoided eye contact and seldom cracked a smile. The hotel food was your basic Creole buffet featuring spicy curries, mutton, rice and fish. We tried the restaurants in the town of Victoria a minute drive over the hill in our rented Mini Moke. They were nothing to write home about either. He became dreadfully ill and had to be taken off the island on the HU Albatross to Mombasa. He later claimed it had been the most disastrous holiday he ever had.
The turquoise waters and views of Silhouette and North Islands in the distance were magical and I exposed many rolls of film of the fabulous sunsets. There was seldom a soul in sight. It felt like our own private beach. Swiss-run like a clock, it is destined to become one of the great hotels in the islands if not the entire Indian Ocean. Our beach-view suite was beautifully climate controlled and the king-size Kempinski bed was the most comfortable in memory.
There was nary a creepy nor crawler. It was the only time I have ever gone an entire week on any island without an insect bite; I received 14 in one day on Bali a few years ago. Within a day it seemed as if the entire Kempinski staff knew our names and, surprisingly, the Seychellois employed by the hotel were positively bursting with smiles and good cheer.
The evening buffet, with different themes each night, was quite spectacular, the breakfasts formidable. The bar, and bar food, was world-class and well-manned by local staff. We had been warned against a local entrepreneur named Frankie who would take tourists on a horse-drawn carriage ride around the island for twenty rupees.
