Hotel L'Archipel, Seychelles
Idyllic, charming and boutique all apply to this beautiful property on the north-eastern coast of Praslin. If you are looking for an intimate, genuine Seychellois welcome, which is a world away from the larger resorts, then Hotel L’Archipel is just perfect. It’s also perfectly located for those of you planning a little island-hopping! Hidden away, this glorious hotel is tucked into a natural amphitheatre of gently swaying coconut palms and all rooms and suites take full advantage of the sublime view with expansive verandas; comfortably furnished for lazy afternoons and warm, tropical nights.
There are just 32 rooms and suites, all prettily finished in an elegant Creole style and scattered across the hillside and reached by winding pathways through the fragrant hibiscus and frangipani trees. The larger Executive Suites and Senior Suites boast a separate living area and are ideal for romantic couples.
Although the beach is stunning, there is the added bonus of a lovely infinity-edge pool and for those who want to explore at their own pace, bicycles can be hired. A ‘must-see’ is Praslin’s Vallee de Mai where the distinctive Coco-de-Mer (sea coconut) grows wild on ancient palm trees.
Two excellent restaurants ensure no compromise on cuisine, one of which is on the beach – perfect for kicking back and drinking in the magic of a Seychellois sunset.
