Les Lauriers, a natural and eco-friendly haven

Les Lauriers Hotel is located on one of the most famous islands of the Seychelles, just a few steps away from the beautiful Côte d'Or beach in Praslin. Les Lauriers reveals its charm in a private and resolutely ecological setting, where its owners have chosen to optimize the use of local natural resources by installing solar panels and even recycling wastewater!

The African soul of the Seychelles takes the form of a village of huts with vibrant colours set in a lush garden. You can choose from one of fourteen villas, either family size or standard rooms, all of which open onto a sea of tropical greenery punctuated by flamboyant hibiscus plants and tall coconut trees. The elegance of this small hotel is matched only by the success of its charming restaurant where you'll enjoy a daily buffet of shellfish, salads and grilled meats set amongst the wooden pillars from the local Alexandrian laurel. Impressive sights and glorious tastes!

CaranaBeach, happiness in a hotel

The CaranaBeach Boutique Hotel, named after one of the most beautiful beaches of Mahé, invites you to discover the island at its most authentic. Each of the forty villas, with or without private pool, opens onto the Indian Ocean or the Seychelles jungle. The comfort of the villas is enhanced by the modern elegance of their decor.

After an afternoon spent with family or friends swimming in the turquoise water surrounded by century-old turtles and a myriad of paradise fish, there is nothing better than a massage at the expert hands of the hotel masseur or a well-deserved nap on your room's immense bed. The CaranaBeach Hotel staff is also at your beck and call to help you with whatever needs you have!

At sunset, a pleasant walk along the beach and its colonnade of granite pillars will take you to the bar to sip an exotic cocktail while listening to music. The restaurant will delight locavores with their farm products served with the catch of the day. A pleasant moment to end a magical evening.

An idyllic stopover at the New Emerald Cove

On Praslin Island, ten minutes by boat from Mahé, get ready for a dream holiday at the aptly named New Emerald Cove, indeed one of the finest jewels among Seychelles hotels. Harmoniously nestled amidst a natural setting, the hotel's 42 rooms let you contemplate, from dawn to dusk, the docile ocean waves and the undulation of the palm leaves above you.

Your immense canopy bed on the lacquered wood floors summons the spirit of a tropical palace where you can take a break during the day's hottest hours. After high noon, a guide can take you on a land or sea tour to discover the treasures of the Seychelles, before you give yourself over to the spa for a perfect treatment or divine massage. After this moment of relaxation, the Hibiscus restaurant will welcome you under its impressive wooden structure around a generous Creole buffet.

The Patatran Village: adventure into the turquoise waters

Near Sainte Anne lies a paradise for adventurers that would have impressed Robinson Crusoe himself. Located at the northern end of La Digue Island, the Patatran Village Hotel offers the ultimate in romance for nature lovers (and for lovers as well). A midday or midnight swim in the crystal clear waters of Anse Patate will give you the impression that you are the first to tread on its pristine sand and dive into its crisp waves.

Then head back to your room, a cocoon of cotton and rattan softness perched in the lush canopy above the azure lagoon. The hotel will allow you to rent equipment for an underwater expedition at the Coco Island Nature Reserve. In this open-air aquarium, you will observe the aquatic ballet of multicoloured fish as they swim around the coral. Finally, a refined dinner at the Tarosa restaurant and a cocktail at the famous Pirate Bar will make you feel like a buccaneer ready to take charge of the sumptuous beaches of the hotel! But perhaps that can wait until morning…

Charm and the sweet life at Fregate Island

Fregate Island Private is one of the most exclusive resorts in the Seychelles. At the centre of this 2-square kilometre island is an intense green jungle planted with cashew trees and other plant species whose dense vines are the privileged refuge of a colony of birds of all colours.

Along the seven beaches of the island – among the most beautiful in the world – are 16 sumptuous villas ranging in size from 600 to 1,100 square meters. The infinity pools overhang the translucent waves and opalescent sand and look out over majestic blocks of pink Seychellois granite. After having explored on foot or on a cycle the 11 miles of forest, populated by some 2,000 giant tortoises, head out onto the water for some deep sea fishing, go in for an organic treatment at the Rock Spa, or try the lobster grilled on the beach or a dinner under the stars perched in the tropical canopy.

A memorable stay at the Four Seasons

The Four Seasons Seychelles offers you incomparable scenery on its own island sanctuary. Nestled between anthracite rocks on a lush hillside, the Four Seasons is a true architectural achievement beautifully blending into the landscape. The 67 villas on stilts, with private pools and terraces, dominate the treetops and the beautiful bay of Petite Anse, where you can languish on a deckchair or swim among the paradise fish.

The Four Seasons also offers original activities such as a Tropicsurf course with a coach, the creation of your personalised postcard with the help of a photographer or the experience of the Starlight Massage on the hotel's rooftop, making your stay unique and rich in discoveries!
