    Location 7.0 /10

    On the south-west coast of Praslin, in Grand Anse, directly on the seashore. Travelling from the airport located 3 miles away takes 10 minutes. The Palm Beach is located just before the intersection leading to La Vallée de Mai, classified by Unesco.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel's 16 rooms are gorgeously decorated with "Compagnie des Indes" style furnishings. They all have a big terrace arranged so that you can enjoy the stunning panorama of the Indian Ocean and the Cousins and Cousines islands facing them. All rooms are equipped with a king size bed, television, safe, fridge stocked on request, with tea and coffee facilities, telephone with direct international calls and Internet access, separate air-conditioning and ceiling fan. The bathroom comprises a bathtub equipped with shower, non separate toilets, a double basin and a bidet. However, there are no guest supplies except a bar of soap and hairdryer. Room-service is available from 7:30 am to 9:30 pm. Please note: You do not need a plug adaptor.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    This new hotel opened in November 2002 has an appeasing colonial style with pastel hues and green roofs. The 16 rooms are partitioned into two floors in two buildings with a lovely colonial architecture, 3 rooms on the 2nd floor, 9 on the 1st and 4 on the ground floor, close by the swimming pool. 5 ft deep, it is equipped with plastic deckchairs with pads and parasols, and is opened around the clock. Towels are furnished at the front office.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Kato Noir (named after an endemic black parrot of La Vallée de Mai), located on the seafront, near the swimming pool and bar, serves a buffet of Creole and international dishes twice a week.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The beach of Grand Anse boasts of the largest sandbar in Praslin. It is perfectly suited for fly-fishing or hand line fishing. Nevertheless, at low tide, you will have to walk for some time before you can bathe. Further away, the coral reef protects the lagoon from the waves. The beach has plastic deckchairs with pads, from where you can order your favourite cocktail. From May to October, North-West trade winds bring algae to the shore.

    To know

    The hotel's location is suitable for admiring the magnificent setting of the sun, as it gracefully sinks between Cousins and Cousines islands, facing the beach. The Palm Beach was hit by the December 2004 tsunami and used the occasion to improve the infrastructure during the constructed work that followed. Note that Joël Hoarar, the Seychellois manager of the hotel, knows how to create a lively atmosphere in the evening by singing and playing the piano himself.

    Lodging tips

    The 4 rooms on the ground floor by the swimming pool are perfectly suitable for disabled or elderly persons. They also have a small private garden. However, they do not have the magnificent view of the ocean. But you cannot have everything!
    The 3 rooms on the 2nd floor offer the best view but accessing them by the staircase can be tiring for some. 2 rooms are specially designed for families, with 3 beds that is one big and two small. Nevertheless, the bathroom of these two rooms do not have a bathtub.
