Pools & Beaches
The hotel is flanked by several small, quiet beaches in the bay of Anse Bois de Rose. Prevailing winds and tides can cause a build-up of seaweed during certain times of the year, typically during the months of May to October. However, guests always have access to ample sun-bathing areas, large sand terraces with palm tree strung hammocks and sun loungers.
A complimentary private shuttle bus to Anse Lazio, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, is offered several times per week to our guests.
Sport & Fitness
In case you still want a workout during your holiday, our gym with a lovely ocean view, is the perfect place to stay in shape.
We also offer free use of Stand-Up paddle boards (SUP) and canoes to our guests. Snorkelling equipment and bicycles are for hire at a charge. A giant chess board, with ocean views of course, is there to stimulate the mind.
Complimentary guided nature walks are offered several times per week. Our local guide takes you on a walk through the tropical forest where you can discover the famous Coco der Mer palm, cinnamon and cashew trees, and vanilla plants just to name a few. You will learn many interesting facts about our flora and fauna. You could well see several endemic species: a majestic Seychelles Blue Pidgeon, a friendly Seychelles Bulbul, or a ridiculously large Seychelles Fruit Bat. If you are lucky enough you could spot a Black Parrot, a very rare endemic species only found on Praslin.
Diving & Excursions
There are several scuba diving centres based on Praslin – a lovely opportunity to experience the beauty of the underwater world. A day trip to the charming island of La Digue or to one of the other neighbouring islands, as well as deep-sea fishing can easily be arranged with one of our trusted partners. A visit to the Vallee de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a Garden of Eden like experience and not to be missed.
