    Location 5.02 /10

    In St. Joseph on the beach of Grande Anse in Praslin, just over a mile from the airport. The St. Anne Jetty where boats arrive is just over 7 miles away and takes 20 minutes to reach by car.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    Although it might not be the actual road to paradise (the meaning of 'Dhevatara' in Thai), it does look like it. An abundance of shells, coconut-scented candles, parquet flooring, wooden furniture (a four-poster king-size bed protected by a mosquito net, a nicely decorated coffee table): guests are at one with nature in these eleven 50m² villas where comfort has not been forgotten. They are all equipped with a movable large flat-screen television with 21 channels, a free digital code safe spacious enough to fit a laptop (the Wi-Fi Internet access here is free), individual air-conditioning combined with a ceiling fan, a mini-bar fridge (with two free bottles of water), and tea and coffee-making facilities (the tea is free as is the first capsule of coffee). Breakfast and dinner are included in the price of your room and can be enjoyed on your terrace, which is furnished with a wooden coffee table and a bench with cushions, overlooking either the garden or the sea. Room service is available 24/7. A stained-glass window decorated in the theme of the room (a sunset, orchids, coco de mer?) separates the dressing room from the rest of the room. Let's not forget the little details, like the DVD player, a chessboard and even an iPod.
    The bathroom includes an old-fashioned claw foot bathtub, a tropical flexible shower, a double wash basin, tissues, Occitane hospitality products, a wooden goblet, a toilet, bathrobes and slippers, and a hair-dryer stowed in a drawer.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    Opened in November 2011, the Dhevatara Beach Hotel comprises two 2-storey and one single-storey buildings offering 11 villas, which all have the same amenities but different decor. In the middle of the complex you will find a 65m² overflow swimming pool (1m50 deep), which has the particularity of being ionised (and not chlorinated like most swimming pools). In it you have the impression of swimming in mineral water. There is no lack of charm in the surroundings, with basins holding faking tortoises and stylish fountains. You can stretch out on the wicker deckchairs with cushions on the wooden terrace around the pool, or relax on the hammock hung between two takamaka trees on the lawn. White canvas parasols protect you from the sun, while bath towels are provided on-site. Open from 10:00am to 8:00pm, the spa has a therapist (a native of Thailand) who gives Thai massages, of course, but who can also give you an ayurvedic, Balinese or hot stone massage using natural locally-made products.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    You can enjoy your meals on your terrace if you like, or you can ask to have a table set up on the beach for a romantic candlelit dinner! Otherwise, head to the à la carte restaurant, The Pond, where a local chef creates Asian-Creole and Mediterranean Fusion cuisine that is delicious and well-presented. This restaurant with a capacity for 25 guests won the prize for 'best starter' in Seychelles. Here you will be able to taste flowers like dried begonia and enjoy some great wines. The salt and pepper are presented in shells. Breakfast is served from 7:00am to 10:00am, lunch from 12:00pm to 3:00pm and dinner from 7:30pm to 10:00pm, but these hours are flexible and the chef adapts to the wishes of the clientele. A brunch is served on Sundays. You can also take off your shoes and relax at the BBQ Barefoot beach restaurant with your feet in the sand.

    Beach 8.45 /10

    The beach of Grande Anse is just opposite. Lined with coconut trees and magnificent takamaka trees, it has white sand and clear water but is not protected by a coral reef. Apart from a shower, it is has absolutely no facilities, but deckchairs can be obtained upon request. From May to October, north-west trade winds bring algae onto the shore. Thus there is a free shuttle that will take you to the beach of Côte d'Or on the other side of the island, which is free from algae.

    To know

    Children under 12 are not allowed to stay in this boutique hotel which, except for Friday evenings when an orchestra plays, is a very quiet place with no entertainment. Guests are more than just a simple room number at the Dhevatara, a Thai word meaning 'the road to paradise'. As soon as you arrive you are invited to drink some tea made with citronella grown in the hotel's vegetable garden, where many medicinal plants are grown. You will aslo be offered a Thai foot massage upon your arrival. A computer with Internet access is at your disposal in the lobby and the Wi-Fi access is free in the guest rooms for those who have brought along their laptop.
