The Tourism Accommodation Establishment ‘Cabanes Des Anges’ Reopens On La Digue Island In The Seychelles

Seychelles-TravelOriginally the Cabanes Des Anges Hotel on La Digue Island was built in 1972 by Karl St.Ange when tourism was but being launched in Seychelles. This iconic small hotel became an immediate success because of the personalised management approach of Karl St.Ange where he would ensure that visitors would sit nightly on the beach for their dinner. His bungalow styled establishment, constructed only in local timber, surrounded the property’s main building that housed the reception,  restaurant and a panoramic bar on the first floor overlooking the sea and the daily sunset. The book ‘Seychelles remembers Karl St.Ange’ published in 2011 writes ‘Karl St.Ange was a cabanadesange guest housepeople’s person which made him a successful hotelier. His style of hotel management was centered on his guests. His property was well covered by visiting foreign press and it was already offering to the Seychelles tourism industry, as far back as the 1970s, what Seychelles re-launched in 2010 – a Seychelles Brand of Tourism”.
The Cabanes Des Anges of Karl St.Ange was purchased by the Seychelles Government in 1983 and it became part of the adjacent La Digue Lodge of Gregoire Payet.
This week the St.Ange family on La Digue re-opened a smaller and brand new Cabanes des Anges Guest House. The new property is next door to the property that once belonged the Karl St.Ange. It is Carl and Sydney Mills, the sons of Myriam St.Ange who have rebuilt the property that carries the name of the hotel that was owned by their grand father Karl St.Ange. Myriam St.Ange is already managing the Chateau St.Cloud Hotel, once the family home of the St.Ange family of La Digue.
Alain St.Ange, the Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture joined the St.Ange family on La Digue for the opening ceremony of the new Cananes Des Anges Guest House. He stood for a picture with his sister and brother, Myriam and Marston St.Ange as well as one with his nephews Carl and Sydney Mills  and also for a family shot to mark the reopening of the hotel having the name of the famous property once owned by Karl St.Ange.
“I need to congratulate my sister Myriam and my nephews Carl and Sydney and their families for bringing back to life a hotel name coined by Karl St.Ange way back in 1972. I was also happy to see the logo of the original hotel being re-used as the logo of this new property. The new Cabanes Des Anges Guest House is excellent, it is modern and it will do well” said Minister Alain St.Ange after touring the bungalows and the property’s swimming pool.
“Claiming back our tourism industry means more Seychellois getting involved in this industry that remains the pillar of our economy. We need to continue to encourage more Seychellois to be involved in the industry if we want our tourism industry to be consolidated for the long term, and my appeal is for Seychelles to continue to work even more with Seychellois to entice them to join the industry that remains the pillar of our economy” said Minister Alain St.Ange
Carl and Sydney Mills on their part said that they were happy to see the name of the hotel that belonged to their grandfather re-opened ,as they committed themselves to ensure that the new Cabanes Des Anges would become a benchmark for hotel accommodation on La Digue. “It is not size, but style and commitment that will shine in tourism establishments on La Digue” the two brothers  Carl and Sydney Mills said.
