An exquisite charm exudes from this Relais & Châteaux built on Praslin's heights in the middle of lush vegetation. One drawback: no direct access to the sea.

    Location 6.0 /10

    On the south-east coast of Praslin, on the heights overlooking Anse Marie-Louise and Pointe Cabris. For transfers from the airport located about 6 miles away, count 15 minutes. Jetty, the marina of Sainte-Anne bay from where boats sail is within 5 minutes by car.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    All different, the 9 rooms, including 4 bungalows, one standard room, a castle suite, two garden suites and a villa, combine a style that is both very natural and luxurious, with a very cosy lounge area. There is a large king size bed with mosquitoe net, adjustable air-conditioning, television with plasma screen with DVD player, two direct telephone lines including a wireless telephone, mini-bar, a coffee and tea kit and a safe. The walls in pink local granite, the roofs made of thief palm leaves and the furniture is made of rich timber (teak, takamaka). You will appreciate.the wonderful view of the sea and the islands from the terrace-balconies. The bathrooms are spacious and open onto the room, with a shower without curtain, two transparent glass sinks, very modern and practical, a bathtub (in nearly all the rooms) and separate toilets. Keisi (memory of sens) guest supplies, hairdryer, incense and bath salts are provided. A pocket torch near the bed will be of use for your night trip to observe stars from the foam bath for example. You will also find a map of Praslin to organise your excursions. Finally, the rooms are equipped with European sockets, hence no problem of adaptors!

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Located on a rocky promontory overlooking the sea, Le Château de Feuilles, built in 1973 and renovated in 2005, with Polynesian village-like bungalows with palm roofs, in the middle of greenery. It has 9 rooms, a lovely rotunda-shaped entrance hall and a 915 ft² swimming pool up to 10 feet deep, equipped with deckchairs in teak and pads, extended by a large straw hut containing the restaurant and the bar. The pink granite, omnipresent, blends perfectly with the landscape. Far apart from the central part, the guests can go to a wonderful massage room providing treatment with essential oils as well as a foam bath with an exceptional panorama on the bay and the surrounding islands. You can also observe this point of view from a solarium terrace located below the swimming pool. An occasion to play Robinsons without sacrificing your comfort. Absolute calm reigns in these places, hardly disturbed by the rolling waves and the singing of birds.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    Under a large hut with thief palm leaves, the hotel's restaurant is wonderful and very ventilated. It is renowned in the Seychelles for its quality services, managed by Harry, from Mauritius, and for specialities from fish and shellfish, prepared for 30 years now by a Seychellois Paris-trained chef. On the menu, zéclair Mariné à la Créole, fruit salad from breadfruit tree, green pawpaw satini, zourite curry and coral lentils cooked in coconut milk. Meat enthusiasts will remain hungry, but it will be a pity to come to the Seychelles to eat imported frozen meat whereas the best fish in the world are there! In the evening, tables are displayed around the swimming pool, lighted by candlelight, an ideal romantic setting. The bar adjacent to the restaurant also offers a charming setting with comfortable settees and its beautiful sea view. For breakfast served à la carte, you taste mainly delicious home-made pastries and fresh fruit juice.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    Located on high ground, the hotel has no direct access to the sea. The beautiful sand beach of Anse Marie-Louise is located below, 1,640 ft away, but to reach it, you have to take a track through lush vegetation for fifteen minutes, or you can take the road. You have to climb to come back, which may seem difficult for some. Over the week end, boat tours are organised to ithe hotel's private island, Grande Soeur, an opportunity for a barbecue day (33 pounds sterling per person) on a quiet, heavenly island. The hotel also has a car available which will take the guests to the beach of their choice. Beach towels are provided.

    To know

    Le Château de Feuilles is one of the two Relais & Châteaux in the archipelago. The establishment also has a private virgin island, Grande Soeur, not far from Praslin, where it organises free excursions for the day with barbecue for lunch. The island is therefore strictly reserved for the hotel's clients.
    Le Château de Feuilles has no direct access to the beach but the guests can rent a car free of charge to take them wherever they want to go on the island: what advantage!
    Over 150 DVDs are available for free at the reception for those who are bored. For tranquillity and security reasons, the establishment is forbidden for children below 10 years.

    Lodging advice

    The garden suites are a bit far apart, and more difficult to access, even though they have two magnificent views of the nearby islands, on one side and the swimming pool and restaurant on the other. We therefore recommend the castle suite, located on the 1st floor of the reception for the elderly.
