Carana Beach Hotel

Seychelles, Mahe

Carana Beach offers a unique style of modern boutique accommodation, never before seen in the Seychelles. With just 40 stylish chalets, all peering out over a secluded stretch of fine white sand and iconic granite boulders, there is immediate beach access and stunning views no matter where you’re situated. The twelve super-stylish Ocean View Chalets offer increased privacy with their own plunge pool and all for exceptional value. The hotel also provides the chance for an excursion to Denis Island, a tiny remote strip of land further into the Indian Ocean where their sister hotel is based. In fact, some of the incredible cuisine available at Carana is farmed in Denis before being brought straight to table to ensure maximum freshness. An à la carte dinner is served each night at the Lorizon restaurant terrace, which overlooks the sea. Or for those who want to get closer still, there is the option for a moonlit dinner on the beach.

A range of hotel child prices applies to ages 0-1, 2-11 & 12-17 years.

The hotel has 40 chalets.

About the location
The central island of Mahé is the cultural core of the Seychelles, bundling most of the country’s population between its shores.

This is where you’ll find the capital, Victoria – a north-easterly city that clings to a harbour busy with a mix of seafaring locals and island-hopping holidaymakers. A whistle-stop tour here should include the Seychelles National Botanical Garden, which lays out five acres of tropical gardens – ancient Aldabra giant tortoises and fruit bats included.

Out of the city, wildly beautiful beaches are the theme. Anse Intendance Beach rolls out gleaming white sands between the turquoise ocean and green jungle, while peach and lemon villas squeeze between the coconut palms of Beau Vallon Beach.

The scenery takes a turn for spectacular as you head inland. Morne Seychellois National Park is the mountainous interior of Mahé. Hiking trails trickle through the thick jungle, roving between secluded sandy bays, Morne Seychellois peak, rocky granite lookouts and watery mangrove forests.
Transfer time
45 minutes from the Seychelles International airport.

This Hotel is in a stunning location, rooms great, amenities good. Excellent for honeymooners. Not much happens in the pool area or bar after 8.30p.m. Very isolated with no restaurants or shops...
