But you can get the fifth night free, bringing the points price of five nights to 380,000 points.
That is quite a value if compared to cash price!

Here’s the previous press release by Hilton about this hotel:
MAHE, Seychelles – LXR Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) collection brand of independent luxury properties, today announced plans to open Mango House Seychelles on Mahé island in early 2021.
This highly anticipated, intimate and exclusive resort is situated on pristine beachfront in the southern part of Mahé, stretching along the edge of the Anse aux Poules Bleues – a sparkling calm bay with shallow clear waters. An oasis of relaxation enveloped by the revitalising fragrance of surrounding fruit trees, Mango House Seychelles will provide a convivial retreat where guests can soak in breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean and explore Mahé’s white sandy beaches, all the while enjoying a truly unique hospitality experience.
“We are delighted to have signed an agreement to bring LXR Hotels & Resorts to the Seychelles,” said Carlos Khneisser, vice president, development, Middle East and Africa, Hilton. “We currently operate three properties on the islands and the destination’s enduring appeal as a year-round holiday sanctuary for the world’s discerning travellers makes it a prime location to grow our luxury portfolio with the LXR brand. In addition to providing tailored service, Mango House Seychelles will allow guests to delight in a myriad of unique and exciting culinary concepts, including a variety of locally inspired menus. Guests can look forward to enjoying a boutique luxury resort experience at this outstanding LXR property.”
Originally built as a family dwelling by celebrated Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri, Mango House Seychelles promises a sense of home in a private and remote location with 41 spacious and immaculately designed guest rooms including nine suites. Every aspect of the guest experience stays true to Seychelles’ vibrant heritage and culture, from the resort’s artisanal charm to its thoughtful and genuine service. The resort’s consummate hosts are on hand to create authentic experiences that will last a lifetime – from barefoot candlelit dinners to intimate escapes. Guests will also have the opportunity to explore the turquoise waters of the Anse A La Mouche bay and its kaleidoscope of flora and fauna through an exciting range of water sport activities such as kayaking and snorkelling.
“It’s a pleasure to introduce LXR to the Seychelles where our guests will experience the unique story of this incredible property come to life,” said Feisal Jaffer, global head, LXR Hotels & Resorts. “Developed in harmony with its picturesque surroundings, Mango House Seychelles will deliver handcrafted hospitality with the rich and fascinating Seychellois culture woven into every aspect of the guest experience. The property will be a fabulous addition to our growing collection, and we look forward to extending LXR’s exceptional service to both visitors and locals of these fabled islands.”
Five world-class food and beverage venues will take guests on a culinary journey of exotic flavours. Muse will offer a soulful blend of Mediterranean-inspired dishes made from market-fresh local ingredients. Guests can also indulge in freshly made sushi and robatayaki grilled delicacies at Japanese restaurant Azido or enjoy a relaxed beach dining experience with fresh seafood and succulent meats grilled over sustainable coconut shell charcoal at the resort’s barbecue pop-up venue.
For a playful afternoon, guests will need look no further than the resort’s pool bar, Soley, inviting holidaymakers to sip on refreshing, island-inspired cocktails by the vibrant poolside. Meanwhile, the resort’s Indo-Seychellois bar will serve exotic cocktails, rums, and cool gin and tonics infused with ingredients inspired by the rich heritage of the island’s very first settlers.
Whether looking for mesmerising views or pure tranquillity, guests can choose from three pool areas, including the main eye-shaped pool, an infinity pool and a wooden deck pool, all offering plenty of opportunities to be pampered while soaking up the Seychellois sun.
Mango House Seychelles also incorporates treatment rooms overlooking the glittering Indian Ocean and personalised therapies using locally sourced, handcrafted products. Together with a well-appointed fitness centre, the resort promises the ultimate sensory experience, allowing guests to conveniently relax and rejuvenate throughout their stay.
These hotel openings are often delayed, and this has already moved to July from March, and it wouldn’t surprise if there are further delays.
I have made a booking for early 2022 when Covid-19 restrictions have hopefully been relaxed, if not gone, and this hotel has opened.
It won’t surprise me if we have the same situation with this hotel as we did with the Waldorf-Astoria Maldives when it was first opened for cash and points reservations.
It was effortless to get award bookings first, but after the hotel opened, they are challenging to get by, especially if you want to stay at least five nights to get the discounted rate.
If you eye this new hotel in Seychelles using points, it won’t hurt to get the bookings in now.
