OETKER COLLECTION COMES TO SEYCHELLES
(Posted 26th July 2013)
Fregate Private Island has just become part of the fancied Oetker Hotel Collection following the signing of a resort management contract between the owners and Oetker.
The existing resort has since July put the Oetker name to it, and the reputation and reach of the Oetker Collection among the world’s most discerning travelers will no doubt bring their aficionados to the Seychelles, to find out what new level of luxurious hospitality they will find.
Comprising 16 villas, between 400 and 700 square metres in size, each featuring their own infiniti pool and a Jacuzzi, the guests have access to 7 stunning beaches dotted around the island.
Fregate is known to be the home of the second largest community of the giant Aldabra tortoises and myriads of birds, which call the lush forest of the island their home.
An extensive vegetable, fruit and herb garden provides the chefs with fresh organic ingredients, which are used to enrich the cuisine with daily changing menus.
Oetker’s CEO Frank Marrenbach, on the occasion of taking charge at Fregate Island Private, was quoted to have said: ‘Fregate Island Private is in perfect harmony with the requirements of [the] Oetker Collection: exceptional environmental settings, overall wellbeing, exquisite décor, and incomparable service. It is certainly one of the most inspiring private islands worldwide. We are, of course, very happy to have an experienced General Manager such as Paul van Frank on board, who will be the custodian of these values. After L’Apogee Courchevel, due to open in December 2013, we are delighted to welcome Fregate Island Private as our eighth masterpiece hotel. Every hotel is passionately managed based on our ability to protect individuality and on the shared principle of creating unique moments for our guests. One of a kind as we say.’
Good news for the Seychelles no doubt as the individual marketing efforts of the Oetker Collection will now complement the ongoing marketing juggernaut of the Seychelles Tourism Board and private sector, bringing yet more spotlight on the archipelago and drawing in more clients. Seychelles, truly Another World’.
