About the location
Praslin was voted one of the best islands in Africa by the well-travelled TripAdvisor set. That’s largely thanks to the wiggly coastline of beaches that tussle for the title of the best strip of sand in the Seychelles. North-westerly Anse Lazio is the most well-known, thanks to its silver-bright stripe of sand. For something a little quieter, try Anse Kerlan – a hideaway for sea turtles and peace-seekers.
Praslin National Park sits in the centre of the island; it's home to the red-beaked bulbul and black parrot. The Vallée de Mei carves out a path through the jungle, with footpaths trailing past towering groves of coco de mer palm trees and flowering tropical plants. Many of these are first growth, hardly touched by humans.
Meanwhile, dive centres give you the chance to go on safari in the Indian Ocean. Easy dives tick off the coral reefs (you could see rays and firefish gobys), while trickier trips head to the Outer Islands, where sharks and rays flicker through the waters.
It is a 20 minute flight from Seychelles International airport to Praslin Island airport before a 20 minute transfer onto the hotel.

Have just returned from probably the best beach holiday we have ever had and we are well travelled, the Seychelles are a must (beat the Carribean last year) and the Coco De Mer was all we expected and more.
As soon as we arrived at the hotel we had a warm welcome and the one thing that stands out during our stay was the friendliness of all the staff and their willingness to help.
We had a beach front rooms which had a great view of the sea only 10 metres away. As with the rest of the hotel the rooms have been refurbished and are really modern and comfortable.
We decided to go half board which is definitely a good idea as there are no restaurants within miles. We found the food at the hotel varied and very good and the musicians who played a few evenings gave it a nice atmosphere.
The location and size of the hotel makes it quiet and feel very private you can have the beach to yourself.
There is so much to see on Praslin and the surrounding islands that you will want to travel around and the hire of a car is a good idea but after our first trip on the bus to the Jetty we decided against that as the roads are shall we say a challenge.
We found the bus service great, being a chance to meet the locals and its cheap any bus is SCR 7. (about 44p) (Taxi 2 miles ??12) With the hotels free bus shuttle to Anse Lazio we managed to go around the majority of the island and get to the ferries and water taxi services.
Made use of the hotel Library but just looked at the Gym and thought I,m on holiday.
We had great visits to La Digue, Curieuse , Valee de Mai, Anse Lazio .
Time now to reflect on a great trip lovely hotel and the nightmare of Abu Dhabi airport.

My girlfriend and I had the privilege of staying here for 3 nights and it was an absolute delight, the venue is immaculate and the service is fantastic. The staff are far enough so as not to make you feel like your being watched but are on hand immediately should you require anything. This is always a valuable trait as sometimes you can be stifled by constant requests in other venues we have visited. The manager Ash welcomed us on our arrival and what a charming and very welcoming guy he is furnishing us with some local knowledge and hotel history, he made a point of finding us upon departure to make sure the hotel and service had lived up to expectations and it really did. The sunsets on the jetty over a soothing cocktail and the very tasty creole food made for a very authentic Seychelles stay
We will definitely be back for more when we hit the praslin shores again especially for the afternoon tea and homemade cookies.
Until next time
Regards from Andy Pullen
