We celebrated our 10yr anniversary at STORY Hotel and the front desk staff ensured that we were celebrated. We stayed in a Beach Pool Villa and it was very spacious and inviting. From check-in to check-out STORY hotel made it very easy, and they were very accommodating with a late check out since we had a late night flight. The grounds were beautifully kept, housekeeping was excellent and made sure we had plenty of clean towels during our stay. The on-site restaurants esp - Trader Vics, and Vascos, were very good. We loved it and would definitely recommend STORY to anyone.

We loved our stay here especially for the spa! The spa service was amazing!! Giles from the spa taught me how to perfect my own massage skills which was a worthwhile experience! You must visit the spa at Story it is very luxurious and amazing experience. Even if you are staying elsewhere on the island you must have a treatment at the Story spa while in the Seychelles!

wishing this STORY never ended
Arrived early in the morning and reception ensured we had somewhere to freshen up immediately. Room was ready late morning but by that time we were already settled at the pool enjoying the fabulous sea view. Over a 7day stay we eat in six of the hotel restaurants - all were very good. The full team at the STORY made every effort under difficult circumstances with the various required restrictions due to COVID, to make us feel welcome and looked after. They were so happy to see tourists put their trust in the Seychelles. We made use of the gym, and complimentary yoga classes, kayaking, snorkelling, volleyball. There is a great dive shop next door to the Hotel. The walk along the beach is a perfect way to start the morning and the beach is exactly the place to end the day with the most extraordinary sunsets. We also travelled into Victoria by local bus - 9 rupee vs about 30 euro for a taxi. The bus stop is right outside the hotel. If you want to eat outside of the hotel, walk along the beach and you will find a number of restaurants. Beau Vallon beach is very safe and easy to swim in high and low tide. we had a wonderful time and the service at the poolside - and friendliness of the staff was exceptional. Big thank you to the STORY team. hope to see you all again one day.

The property was nice. But this is overshadowed by how horrible the service is. The service is slow to non existent.

8/10 Very good

Very good, little improvement needed.
Very friendly staff everywhere. Comfortable room and good facilities. Cleanliness of the room could have been better (dirty floor). Also, several caterpillars in the gym (showerd, yoga studio). Beach and pool area were kept nice and clean. Property is advertized as a VIP Access property on Hotels.com (and Expedia), which should entitle you to a few benefits (such as guaranteed 2-hour late check-out, if gold level). However, staff at the reception had absolutely no idea of any of this. Weird...Why is the hotel then part this program, if the staff is not even aware of it? For the price charged per night, these issues should be better handled. Also, Hotels.com staff was not at all helpful when contacted. Anyway, we would stay here again. The friendliness of the staff and the excellent location are already good reason enough to make us stay here again.
