Eden Bleu, Mahé

The novelist Ian Fleming came to Mahé in 1958 in a bid to overcome writer’s block. Given that he managed to write You Only Live Twice, it seems fair to say he succeeded. The hotel, located on manmade Eden Bleu Island, sits in front of a marina with enough luxury yachts to have 007 partying for months.

For lunch, we headed to the hotel’s Marlin Bleu restaurant. Dishes are simple but tasty; burgers, sandwiches, fish and chips among the mainstays. It’s at night, however, when the hotel comes into its own, particularly cocktails at Bourgeois. We sat on the terrace enjoying the relaxed atmosphere as we sipped our drinks. My room had crisp cotton sheets, merciful air-conditioning and decadent amounts of space and a comfortable bed. It was a classy way to spend a trip to the Seychelles. Words: Ronan J O’Shea
