Event Scouts@Club Med Seychelles: Interview Oliver (Event Manager Zalando)

In October 2021, 9 Event Scouts explored the new Private Island and Eco-Resort Club Med Seychelles. The 9 experienced German event planners have been invited by RENT-A-RESORT in cooperation with Club Med Germany and their mission was to share their feedback in regards to the resort’s suitability for MICE events with a focus on resort buyouts.

Very happy to have talked to Oliver (Event Manager Zalando Germany) about the potential of the resort for corporate events and resort buyouts in general but especially with focus on the different banquet locations on site.

Oliver’s statement about banquet options at Club Med Seychelles:
In my personal view, Club Med offers a variety of options for a banquet event. However, my personal perfect banquet location is directly in front of the Reef restaurant in direct connection with the Zen pool and the small bay in front of it. In this area, I believe it is possible to seat up to 150 people at tables around the pool. However, I would start with an aperitif in the entrance area of the Reef restaurant and the breathtaking view across the Zen Pool to the island opposite. For me, it’s the perfect start to give guests a stunning photo moment too before moving on to the set tables around the pool. The covered area of the restaurant can then be perfectly used for the various food and buffet stations and, thanks to the decentralized concept, ensures perfect communication among the guests. As the evening progresses, it is essential to incorporate the beach in front and integrate a beach bar there and a dance area for the perfect end to the evening. In my opinion, the mixture of the existing logistics of the Reef Restaurant with the integrated kitchen and the permanently installed bar as well as the use of the high-quality restaurant furniture in combination with the unique panorama for the guests are a guarantee for a successful evening.
