ReardonSmith was responsible for the re-planning, refurbishment and extension of the famous Le Méridien Fisherman's Cove in the Seychelles.

Fundamental to the concept was the greater harnessing of the resort's luxuriantly mature tropical gardens and the fabulous coastline beyond. The site's definition was transformed with the introduction of a 220-metre decked boardwalk and a series of water features were introduced across the site, the sight and sound of which now hold together the experience. A 70-metre infinity pool was constructed by the shore, seeming to flow into the ocean and offering glorious views along the bay, and a spa was introduced in a tranquil 'Zen' corner of the gardens.

The existing 60 guestrooms were refurbished and a further 10 guest cottages built to match with traditional granite walls, thatch style roofs and private gardens. Inside, however, the rooms were designed to be luxurious contemporary spaces with every modern comfort and amenity.
