A cocktail-style reception, with pass-around canapés and drinks, is a brilliant option for relaxed events where your guests can move about easily and mingle throughout the evening. For a more formal event, we recommend a welcome cocktail, where guests can interact before entering the main banqueting venue. We offer several different beverage packages and canapé menus to suit your needs perfectly.
Whether your cocktail reception is the main event, or the prelude to a more formal gathering, you have the option of several remarkable venues that will begin your evening on an unforgettable note:
On the Beach:
Delight your guests with a casual, seaside cocktail reception on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on Mahé. This gorgeous setting is suitable for events held at any time of the day. Consider hosting a vibrant barbecue reception during lunch, a memorable sundown reception as the dusk sky turns electric pink, or a stunning evening reception beneath swaying palm trees with the sound of rolling waves in the background.
Beside the Lagoon:
Seychelles is well-known for its spectacular beaches, but most visitors are surprised by the islands' mesmerising topography and verdant tropical jungle. Our private lagoon, surrounded by granite boulders and rolling hills, is an excellent illustration of the Seychelles' varied natural beauty - and the perfect location for your cocktail reception. Host a glittering gathering under the stars in this tranquil, yet convenient location.
On the Helipad:
Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare is home to the only helipad on the south of Mahé. Beautifully located beside our private lagoon, and removed from the hotel's main building, this spacious venue is an ideal location for a large, yet private, cocktail reception. Host your gathering under the stars or at sunset, as the island's giant fruit bats take to the sky.
Salon Quincy Foyer:
Seychelles' unpredictable weather need not put a damper on your cocktail reception. Located beside the Salon Quincy Ballroom and overlooking our private lagoon, the Salon Quincy Foyer is a picturesque, undercover venue with stunning views. It is an ideal reception venue for events taking place in the ballroom or in our adjacent fine dining restaurant, L'Indochine.
