Amy Adejokun Section editor

Chalets Côté Mer is only a stone's throw away from Sainte-Anne de Praslin, where boats arrive from Mahé. It is a haven of peace by the waterside with a couple of charming and unassuming chalets, the perfect place to enjoy magnificent landscapes in a simple setting. Ideally situated to explore the island of Praslin, which is a real Garden of Eden, you will get good value for your money in this family establishment.

    Location 6.5 /10

    The establishment is located south-east of Praslin, near the bay of Sainte-Anne and its jetty, where you can catch a boat to Mahé or La Digue. To get to the hotel from the airport, which is situated approximately 6 mi away, expect to take around 20 minutes.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The rooms are in cosy bungalows which are spacious (320 sq ft) and well-equipped. Fitted with white tiling, they have a television (mounted high on the wall like in hospitals) with only two channels, air-conditioning with a fan, a large electronic safe (free of charge), a fridge, tea and coffee-making facilities and a phone (you have to pass through an operator). The beds are wonderful and held up by four wooden pillars. The terraces offer a fantastic view of the lle Ronde, Petite Soeur, Grande Soeur and Marianne islands. There are also two standard rooms that give onto a Deluxe room: the Deluxe rooms (four exactly) are on top of a small flight of stairs. They are more spacious and include a lounge area with a spare bed. In the standard rooms there is access to a very clean and well-decorated bathroom at the top of a few steps. these have a fixed shower, a toilet, a bidet, a hair-dryer and two bars of soap. The six 860 sq ft family apartments for families, which are built over two floors (with a mezzanine floor) include a well-equipped kitchen, a lounge area and two bunk-beds for the children.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Côté Mer Chalets include 12 chalets located on the seaside, as you might well have guessed! The establishment is set in a wonderful little tropical garden with abundant flowers. Built in 1994, this small guesthouse was renovated in 2008: the restaurant is undergoing refurbishment works and the swimming-pool should be ready by 2009. You can also use a small fitness centre here, but don't expect a massive high-tech place with state-of-the-art facilities. However, it is still better than nothing for the most enthusiastic sports lovers!

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel restaurant overlooks the sea and serves Creole cuisine with a buffet of meat and fish dishes, all of which are prepared by René, a French chef. Breakfast is served from 7:30am until 9:30am; you will love the fresh tropical fruit juices, the toast, the eggs, croissants and other cakes. Dinner is served from 7:30pm until 10:00pm. There is no restaurant service at lunchtime. The restaurant has a sun terrace that can accommodate up to 40 guests.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    There is no real beach at Chalets Côté Mer, but at low tide you can grab a mask and snorkel and pay a visit to the marine fauna. You can just see La Digue, Ile Ronde, Petite Soeur and Grande Soeur islands. If you just want to lay back and relax on a deckchair, you are better off catching a bus to the Côte d'Or on the north-eastern part of the island, where you will find a big beach of fine white sand lined with Calophyllum trees. The water is specially clear there and you can admire the Curieuse, Saint-Pierre et Chauve-Souris islands. The beach of Côte d'Or is quite busy because of the long line of hotels on that side of the coast, however, it's nothing like the Côte d'Azur! From May to September, there is a lot of algae washed up on the shore by south-eastern trade winds.

    To know

    The Chalets Côté Mer also have a small adjoining guesthouse called the Colibri that belongs to the same owner. Future plans include grouping these two hotels into one establishment, but for now it seems that this is already the case as the guests of the Chalets Côté Mer enjoy access to the Colibri's facilities, namely the bar, the restaurant and the fitness centre. For those who come with their computer, the reception area offers free Wifi Internet access. The other guests may ask to use the computer of the reception desk for free. A small path takes you to the bus stop of Sainte-Anne's jetty, where you will find boutiques and small supermarkets. The Cat Coco line that runs from Praslin to Mahé also passes closeby.

    Accommodation tip:

    For families, there are six 860 sq ft family apartments specially designed with children's bunk beds and a fully equipped kitchen.

      • Package deals in août 2011 Posted on 2013-07-15 Seul - 3 à 5 nuitées (Appartement/Chalet)

        Cet hôtel est parfait pour venir se détendre quelques nuits sur Praslin à un prix raisonnable (pour les Seychelles)...Les bungalows individuels sont magnifiques, et le vue est à vous couper le souffle. Tout en bois ils se fondent parfaitement dans le paysage. Le jardin qui mène à l'hôtel est très joli également, on est tout de suite dans l'ambiance. Tout est propre, et bien entretenu et les gens y sont charmants.

      • Advantages

        L'hôtel se trouve juste à côté du point où nous débarquons...une personne vient vous attendre avec le 4x4, le service est très agréable. La vue des bungalows donne directement sur la mer, le lieu est extrêmement calme, un vrai havre de paix

      • Disavantages

        Le restaurant. Le service se fait très tôt, et lorsque l'on vient dans les derniers il ne restait plus grand chose. L'art culinaire n'est pas leur spécialité. Le déjeuner ne manquait de rien par contre.
