Praslin is the second largest of the Seychelles islands, a granite-based beauty with a long ridge of mountains covered in jungle, which drops sharply down to pristine, clear-water bays fringed by perfect white sand.

It’s also close to an 18hole golf course.
- Le Domaine de la Réserve on gorgeous Anse Petit Cour on Praslin, is a beautiful hotel resort with just 40 rooms, suites and colonial/ Creole style villas. As well as being fairly secluded around a beautiful stretch of beach, the hotel has one of the largest pools in the Seychelles. There are some very comfortable family options here too, but it’s also very romantic.

The Best Hotel Views on Praslin
- Le Domaine de l’Orangerie is a beautifully designed resort surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens and on a beautiful stretch of private beach. You get the idea, it’s just an incredible location and they’ve built a really unobtrusive hotel here, with 128 rooms, suites and villas of varying sizes. This is the perfect place to come to snorkel, stroll around, enjoy the sunset and just generally lap up the surrounding beauty.
- Le Château de Feuilles is a five-star, resort with just nine suites. The Praslin location means you’re close to operators who can take you out fishing, snorkelling or diving, but it’s a small hotel in a privileged location with access to its own small private island, Grande Soeur, which is 20minutes away by boat.
- Raffles Seychelles is a luxurious hotel on the seafront at the Baie Sainte Anne, with 86 rooms and villas. The sunsets are beautiful when seen from the hotel’s private terraces, and there’s a spa, plunge pools and an excellent sushi restaurant.

Prefer a Private Villa?
If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner, booking.com.
- If you don’t have your own private yacht or boat the only international gateway to the Seychelles is the Seychelles International Airport near the capital, Victoria on Mahé. From there you’ll need to take one of the regular flights between Mahé and Praslin. You can also get around by chartering a helicopter, or charter plane, or by ferry, and there are plenty of ferries.
- If you’re thinking about hiring a car we recommend checking what our online partners, Rentalcars have to offer.
- The Seychelles are generally hot and humid, with the drier, cooler season between May and September and the hotter, wetter season between November and March. The missing months are the changeover months: April is the calmest and warmest month, when the winds are changing direction, and November is warm with light winds, again as they change direction.
