Seychellois hospitality, Spa and Wellness Centre, bar and lounge with relaxed atmosphere and ocean view, beachfront swimming pool and 

comfortable sunloungers with direct beach access.

Project overview: 

Rubio Monocoat (RMC) has successfully been used on a number of resort projects in Seychelles. The Rubio Monocoat range of exterior and interior products perform well in these tropical conditions, and it is easy to apply and maintain. Carana Beach Hotel required a durable product that would offer a colour palette and finished look for their wooden desk and furniture which would compliment the rest of the resort.



“The colour ranges RMC offers also complimented the resorts look & feel perfectly. RMC is also environmentally friendly with 0% VOC ratings, which makes it perfectly suited for our resort and sensitive environment of the island”
