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.

We stayed here for the final 2 nights of our honeymoon after staying on Mahe for the first part. We took the 15 minute flight over which was very efficient. Praslin is a lovely island, very beautiful and the hotel is in a lovely setting with its own private beach. However, the hotel was a bit of a let down. Our room was spacious but certainly not 4 star. The towels were thin and looked very old. The rooms were spacious but the air conditioning was very noisy. There were chipped cups in the bedroom. We had a problem with the shower which flooded the bathroom on the first night. We needed to call out room service in the middle of the night on our 2nd night and despite ringing a number of times the "24 hour service", no one answered the phone. We were disappointed that despite our travel agent telling the hotel we were on our honeymoon, and we mentioned it on arrival, there were no special treats. We stayed at 2 other hotels on our honeymoon, and both of them made our trip really special with champagne, flowers etc.
We ate in the buffet restaurant and the food was ok, nothing special, found it quite oily. Despite being surrounded by mango trees, there wasn't a mango in sight on the menu. The soup seemed like it had come out of a tin. The staff weren't very attentive and only seemed interested if you were going to be ordering extras, even though we were half board and had already paid for our meals. They seemed more interested in talking to themselves than any of the guests. The steps leading down to the private beach were quite broken and should really have been sealed off. A couple of times on the beach, our quiet time was interuped by very noisy staff chatting on the beach. There was no drink service available on the beach, which you would have expected on a private hotel beach.
Someone else's review mentioned sitting on private beach for 14 hours, not sure how they did this as it got dark at 6.30pm every night!
Good points: We went on the nature trail and the leader was exellent, very knowledgable. The same guide was later by the kayaks giving advice to newbys like ourself who had never kayaked before. We found the library very useful.
