MAHÉ, Seychelles - Mango House Seychelles, LXR Hotels & Resorts, the highly anticipated hotel opening this July, has announced Sasha Tyas as general manager. Situated on pristine beachfront in the southwest part of Mahé along the sparkling calm waters of the Anse Aux Poules Bleues bay, Mango House Seychelles is set to be the perfect year-round island oasis with 41 rooms, suites and villas offering breath-taking views of the glittering Indian Ocean.
Sasha aims to bring the intimate hotel’s commitment to handcrafted hospitality to life and nurture local talent to develop a strong team of luxury hospitality professionals. Born in England and raised in France, Sasha is an accomplished hotelier with more than 20 years of experience in luxury hospitality. Filled with positive energy, and speaking five languages, she brings her international experience in managing luxury properties across Portugal, Brazil, the Caribbean, Seychelles and Maldives to this role.
After receiving her master’s degree from the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, Sasha began her hospitality career in 2000 at Vila Vita Parc Resort & Spa in Portugal. In 2010, she spearheaded the opening of the five-star resort Martinhal in Portugal before moving to the Caribbean in 2012 to work at the Canouan Resort at Carenage Bay. In 2018, she became one of only two female general managers appointed in the Maldives at Constance Moofushi. Sasha’s ability to speak multiple languages allows her to grasp the needs of individuals from varying cultures and backgrounds. In her personal time, she enjoys sports activities both on land and sea and is a passionate advocate for sustainability and gender equality.
Sasha continues to break the mould in her domain, this time as the first female general manager for Hilton in the Seychelles. On her appointment, Sasha said: “When I was growing up, my father was a photographer. He and his work has inspired in me a life-long love for travel, art and design. With its storied history and connection to world-renowned Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri, I am so proud to be leading the opening of Mango House Seychelles. This role offers the unique opportunity to create special moments for guests that last a lifetime. We look forward to sharing Seychelles’ vibrant cultural heritage and local stories at the property, creating an intimate yet social setting where guests feel truly at home and return to time and time again”.
Mango House Seychelles is the ultimate destination for avid explorers seeking intuitive luxury and curated experiences. The intimate House of Art and Culture offers guests a sanctuary from busy, urban lifestyles and allows them to discover unspoiled Mahé, world-class dining, eco-friendly aquatic adventures and premium wellness.
