Amy Adejokun Section editor

Modest and friendly, this small hotel opened in 1990 and renovated in 2005 is a wonderful place to live at especially owing to the warm reception of Robert and Lisa, its proprietors. Meanwhile, it has no direct access to the sea, located 655 feet far away.

    Location 7.0 /10

    On the north-east coast of Praslin, near Côte d'Or. For transfers from the airport located about 6 miles away, count 25 minutes.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The 18 rooms of Le Duc de Praslin, worthy a 4* hotel are new. They are distributed in 7 standard deluxe (430 ft²), 6 superior (540 ft²), 2 junior suites (807 ft²), 2 big suites (1,075 ft²), and a family suite (two separated suites, 1,505 ft²). All are equipped with direct telephone line, a safe, a minibar with tea and coffee facilities, a lounge area and a beautiful equipped terrace. However, there is no television in the rooms (except the suites). With their rustic furniture in wood or rattan and their fresh paint, they are pleasant to live in and very neat. The large bathrooms, equipped with shower and separated bathtub, and hairdryer, testifies to the hard work done for the decoration with colourful tiles.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Located slightly away from the beach, Le Duc de Praslin is small establishment opened in 1990, which had major renovation in 2005. A swimming pool, business centre as well as 3 suites allowed Le Duc de Praslin to become a 3* hotel. It has many white bungalows of one or two storeys, displayed in a circle in a magnificent tropical well maintained and emphasised garden with a small bridge and pond with colourful Japanese fish, the whole place is well lighted at night. In the middle is the common area, consisting of a bar and restaurant, as well as a wonderful parlour adorned with an aquarium, boat models and the amazing Seychelles nut, the Seychelles' national symbol. A gorgeous 560 ft² swimming pool, equipped with a shower and a dozen deckchairs, sit in the middle of the garden. Lovely flowers fans will also discover a small orchid garden with more than 100 other species. This family destination is indeed friendly and relatively cheap. The only thing missing is a view of the sea, even if it is only 655 feet away.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    It is under a long covered and very airy terrace that "Le Dauphin" restaurant's tables are arranged. Wonderful, with its wrought iron furniture and the surrounding nature, it is made up of a buffet for breakfast and dinner, delicious Creole dishes cooked by two Seychellois sisters. However, lunch is not served. On Saturday you can taste fish barbecue. If they wish so, lovers can eat alone under candle light, directly by the swimming pool. Every Sunday, the hotel takes their guests to discover a new restaurant in Praslin, "Le Laurier", two minutes away.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    To reach the beautiful beach of Côte d'Or, you have to take a small 655 feet long track. Feral but heavenly with its clean water and fine sand, it has neither deckchairs, nor parasols. At high tide, water tends to submerge the beach leaving bathers only a narrow strip of sand. From May to September, South-East trade winds bring algaes to the shore.

    To know

    Le Duc de Praslin is a good stop over for those who want to tour the island. The only casino in Praslin is only 1 mile from the hotel. For diving enthusiasts, a water sports centre is on the beach, 5 minutes away on foot. This family hotel offers good quality at cheap rate, owing to its location out of the beach, while being just nearby. Thus, most of the rooms are closer to the sea than those in other hotels located by the water, but whose rooms are far from the sea. Equally, the large rooms worthy of a 4* hotel are given at the cost of a 3*. Two cats, a dog, six giant turtles (the oldest, Josephine, is 105 years!), Japanese fish and numerous birds keep company with the guests of the hotel, which has one of the best gardens in Praslin. For entertainment, the hotel also has a lounge with a large television screen, a library and business centre offering free Internet services. In 2000 and 2003, Le Duc de Praslin was voted best hotel of the year by the Ministry of Tourism in the Seychelles.

    Lodging advice

    A 1,505 ft² family suite consisting of 2 rooms will be perfect for couples with children. Also know that the standard deluxe rooms do not have air-conditioning but only a ceiling fan. We recommend the two junior suites for couples on honeymoon.

        Le Duc de Praslin est un hôtel à ne pas louper. Il se situe dans le village de l'île où il faut être, sur la côte où il faut être. Proche de Anse Volbert, plage magique, cet hôtel de charme est un des plus sympa de l'archipel. C'est calme, de bon gôut, une équipe sympa, je pencherai pour les chambres dans le batiment colonial, plus authentiques que les autres. Cependant si vous aimez le confort de la modernité, préferez celles autour de la piscine. Allez-y les yeux fermés.

      • Advantages

        pas de vrai point négatif si ce n'est que la piscine est un peu petite.
