    Location 5.52 /10

    On the north-east coast of Praslin, directly on the shore along the small beach of Anse Gouvernement, at the southernmost end of Côte d'Or. L'Archipel is located less than a mile from Tante Mimi's casino, the only one on the island. For transfers from the airport located about 6 mi away, allow 25 minutes.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    L'Archipel has 23 deluxe rooms (646 sq ft with the terrace), 3 senior suites (700 sq ft with the terrace) and 4 executive suites (1,291 sq ft with the terrace), all fitted with 129 sq ft terraces and a sea view, and named after an island of the Seychelles. Decorated with taste and modesty, they provide luxury which is full of charm without being ostentatious. Their equipment includes a television, a telephone, individual air-conditioning with a ceiling fan, a mini-bar with tea and coffee facilities, and a safe. The beds are furnished with mosquito nets, but only the suites, much in demand for honeymoons, have canopy beds. Particularly large, the bathrooms, with separate toilets and double basins, are very pleasant, and have a bath and a shower. Hospitality products and a hair-dryer are provided.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Ranked among the Châteaux & Hôtels de Charme, this very private hotel built in 1987 had serious renovation work done in 2004. Perfectly integrated in to the surrounding vegetation, the communal areas are divided into Victorian style buildings, including the reception, bar, two restaurants, an Internet room, a body building and massage room and a billiards room. In its extension, there is a large terrace in teak wood containing a perimeter-overflow swimming pool, some wooden tables and deckchairs with mattresses. On the roof, a solarium terrace allows you to admire the superb panorama. The beach is below. The rooms are laid out in Creole bungalows, scattered on a hillside over the whole estate. The general decoration, which is modest and refined, and the quality of service make it one of the best hotels on the island.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    L'Archipel has two restaurants: "Feuille d'or", upstairs, offers a splendid panorama and serves buffets on Tuesdays and Fridays, and a fixed menu for the other days of the week. Buffet breakfast and lunch (à la carte) are served at "Bonmange", the Creole restaurant, located below the main building, opposite the beach. Job, bourgeois, swordfish, Giant African threadfin, red mullet, tuna fish or even African pompano are the many fish to be tasted without moderation. The bar by the swimming pool also offers some simple snacks all day long from 3:00 pm. Please note: the impeccable service is ensured by staff from the island of Mauritius. Evening musical events are organised twice weekly.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    L'Archipel has a small charming beach with fine white sand, furnished with 70 plastic deckchairs, where you can be served one of the marvellous tropical cocktails. Accessible only from the hotel, the beach has the advantage of being private and very peaceful. The guests can practise windsurfing, canoeing and snorkelling on St Pierre islet for free (transfers by boat). However, an extra fee is demanded for bottom line fishing, deep-sea fishing, fly fishing or scuba diving. From May to September, south-east trade winds bring algae to the shore. The panorama on the islands of Curieuse, Saint-Pierre, Chauve-Souris and Fou is breathtaking.

    To know

    L'Archipel is accessible by a small private road (renting a car is highly recommended). It is located on steep land, opposite a small cove. Consequently, you have to walk up a lot of stairs to reach the furthest bungalows. The hotel is therefore not recommended for elderly or handicapped people. To conserve the peace and quiet of the place, children under 3 are not allowed, except on special request. A free shuttle takes guests to the Casino of Praslin, nearby. A taxi-boat is available to get to the islands of Curieuse and Saint-Pierre, as well as the bays of Lazio and Georgette, among the most renowned in the Seychelles.

    Accommodation tip

    Isolated on the heights of the estate, Mille Etoiles villa, which houses three bedrooms, will satisfy those who need even more peace and privacy, while still enjoying the facilities of the hotel.
    We recommend the seven suites to couples on their honeymoon, as they have a bath tub and a four-poster bed.

      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.
