Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, Mahé

The Sunset View

The Gecko Bar

The Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa is located opposite the busy beach of Beau Vallon, North of Mahé Island (first photo of the article).

Late in the afternoon, with Lisa, my friend from Seychelles, I discover the promenade next to the beach, with many restaurants, bars … and barbecues of fresh fish! 

It’s very lively and crowded (too much people for me). I am happy to have spent most of my stay in the South of Mahé which is more preserved and quiet.

At the Gecko Bar (photo above), one of the restaurants and bars of the Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, you can enjoy a pleasant view of the spectacular sunset over the Indian Ocean (photo below). 

The Room

Great Bedding

The comfortable functional room has a well-equipped bathroom with separated bath, shower and toilet. Nice details: L’Occitane bath products. And a little balcony with a view of the swimming pool, where I used to rest on a sofa the afternoons.. 

The Swimming Pool

Huge And Graphic  

The largest pool in the Seychelles islands! To be honest, I didn’t have time to swim there, because I was busy to visit the different parts of Mahé. I like the tiled drawing of the flowers (photo montage above), more graphic in the evening with the lights.

Boasting a central position in the vast complex, the pool is close to the Grand Savoy restaurant, where I had breakfasts and dinner.

The Gardens

Many Shades Of Green

I really enjoy stopping on the way and stroll ing in one of those greenery oases (photo above). Luxuriant and scattered on all the resort, they offer a little freshness and privacy.

Many thanks for the lovely stay to the Savoy Seychelles Resort & Spa, the Seychelles Tourism Board and Air Seychelles. Thanks also to Céline and Lisa. As always, these are my opinions.

The Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel

On My Way To The Airport

I have to be at Brussels airport at 4:30 am (great!). I won’t sacrifice hours of a precious sleep and start my journey exhausted! That’s why I decided to test the airport hotel option, to benefit from a real night’s sleep.

I leave the center of Brussels (picture 1 of the photo montage below) for the Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel, located opposite the entrance gates of the Departures of the airport. Five minutes walk to the check-in counter of my flight! 

The Club Room

On the fifth floor,

Club rooms provide access to the Club Lounge. I am nicely surprised when I enter my renovated 20-25 m² room thought in a very practical way, to meet the needs of both business and leisure travelers.

Very efficient double glazing (no sound from the outside), several electrical outlets scattered throughout the room, free wifi and Evian mini bottles.

I woke up at 4 a.m. I feel rested, despite the fact that I have slept few hours. The bedding is impeccable and the new bathroom is very clean. And I really liked the Galler chocolates with the draw of Geluck’s comics hero, Le Chat (photo below). It’s really Belgian sense of humour.

The Club Lounge

To Combine Usefulness With Pleasure

The Club Lounge is a space for work and relaxation, with drinks and snacks. Two computers and a printer are also available, as well as several national and international daily and magazines.

The Breakfast Corner

4:30 a.m.

I am a little bit late. As the breakfast restaurant opens at 5 a.m., I stop to pick up a fresh croissant on a buffet converted into a breakfast corner in the entrance of the hotel.

The hotel staff is very smiling and professional. While I wrap the croissant in a paper towel to eat it later, the receptionist brings me a full breakfast in a bag especially prepared for me. But I can’t take it away for it would be thrown by the customs.

I leave the Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel delighted with the experience. What a pleasure to come zen and rested (without the stress of the taxi) at the check-in! When my fellow travellers look like The Walking Dead’s zombies! LOL! Sorry guys ; )

I Tested the Acer Customer Service

“Forced” Digital Detox 

My computer broke down after two years of idyllic common life (lol). Panic! Since this summer, following the “almost imposed” update on Windows 10, I’ve noticed that my faithful Aspire V15 Nitro Black was slower, accumulating the bugs. But I patiently dealt with it.  

Some applications jumped, others like Paint disappeared. Then, nothing: a black screen, no way to restart it. After a long weekend to read and apply a thousand protocols to try to restart it, still nothing! A few days later, I get in ypoch with the after-sales service, based in the Netherlands. I am relieved to learn that my device is still under warranty. 

A nice efficient person checks with me different ways to restart my laptop that refuses to function. The problem seems serious and I have to send it to Acer. The company sends me by the mail, stickers to put on my package, for the sending by UPS (pre-paid by Acer). Two possibilities for the withdrawal of the package: UPS picks it up at home, or I can leave the package at one of the UPS collection points. 

My tip: take different pictures of your laptop and some once packed. Do not forget to add the plug in. When the Acer After-Sales Service the package received, they send me an email. Less than a week later, I was getting my laptop repaired! Throughout the process, I received emails to keep me informed of each step. 

You can’t imagine HOW HAPPY I was to find my work buddy-tool, all beautiful clean! We, the human beings, tend to humanize technology. Accompanied by a mail entitled “Your Intervention Report”, detailing the repairs made in a clear and concise language. Great!  

The following week, I received a call from Acer to evaluate my satisfaction (from1 to 10) regarding the intervention and the service. I gave an overall rating of 10! This is not a sponsored post! I just want to share yhe good surprise with you and the customer service of Acer Netherlands! THANK YOU Acer!
