Is it really $180 per person for the PCR test?

When I was there it was 2500 SCR per adult, so about $160 atm.

Covid tests are expensive across the Seychelles and I've heard of similar prices at Mahe. So given that they need to ship the samples to Mahe etc, it almost sounds reasonable  ::)

They charge your folio so if you so aspire credit can help offset

Landing in Seychelles in few hours.

Bringing in a suitcase of prepared meals from pomegranate, on landing card am I bringing any product from animal… is it better to declare or not?

They seem very strict in general… best to come clean? Any experience?

Wow, what a TR.  I used to have a destination bucket list, and Seychelles was definitely on there

I loved everything about this resort when I started doing research. Especially the fact that it is very secluded, all-villas, and gives access to nice hikes.

As a side note, there are very few points hotels in SEZ.
Hilton has three (besides the Labriz they have one on main island which is adult only, and a DoubleTree. They are also about to open a LXR on main island

Nice TR

I'm excited about the LXR, the renderings look stunning:
