As part of SIB’s Post- Investment Support services, a small team of SIB’s Investment Analysts met with the managers of La Belle Tortue Lodge & Gastronomic Restaurant on Silhouette Island.

 

The visit kicked off with a short meeting with the managers Benjamin and Cora Cassé to give a brief on the ways in which SIB can lend support to them.

 

Following the short meeting, the managers took the team on a tour of the establishment and its grounds. La Belle Tortue is a small luxury lodge with a capacity of only fifteen guests, promising its patrons an intimate and exclusive experience. Its three houses comprise of nine bedrooms in total all with sea views, as well as a gastronomic restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lodge currently employs seven staff members in total, of which three are Seychellois. Mr. and Mrs. Cassé also shared that the lodge has fully met the requirements by the Ministry of Health to be able to welcome visitors, and to date since the lockdown they have hosted six tourists. 

 

Following the visit, Mr. and Mrs. Cassé explained some of the constraints that they were facing. Future plans and re-investment projects were also discussed, such as maintenance plans that will accent the traditional architecture of the lodge, building an open-air kitchen for interactive cooking experiences, a home garden and efforts to contribute to more employment opportunities.

 

The SIB team was able to offer their advice on these matters and invited the managers to contact the team should they need any additional support.
