Set upon the beach front of Praslin’s northern coast, the family owned and eco-friendly Le Duc De Praslin resort, offers stunning panoramas of the infamous Cote D’or beach. The crystal clear waters and pristine white sand, make it clear why Praslin beaches have been voted some of the best beaches in the world, by Condé Naste Travel Magazine. But the stunning beaches are not the only stunning settings that this hotel has to offer. Soak up the beauty of the hotel’s award-winning tropical gardens, boasting collections of fabulous orchids, hibiscus and tropical palm trees as well as extensive ponds of Koi carp and waterfalls.
Perhaps feed the fish or spot the 6 giant Tortoises that live in the hotel’s gardens – the oldest of which is 105 years-old. Bask, relax and take a refreshing dip into the inviting Magna pool. Boasting magnesium and potassium filters, rather than chlorine this Magna pool is much gentler on sensitive skin - leaving your skin feeling soft, radiant and smooth. If you feel more energetic try a variety of non-motorised water sports, including paddle boards, kayaks, pedalo, or perhaps hire a bike and venture out the hotel. Take a fishing trip or stroll to two good diving centres taxi boats, restaurants, casinos, and shops. Visit the nearby tourism heritage site of ‘Vallée de Mai’ and enjoy sights of the coco de mer and the unique black parrot. Alternatively take boat rides to the Bird nature reserve island of Cousin and Aride, snorkelling island of St Pierre, and giant tortoise island of Curieuse.
In the evenings, retire back to the hotel and enjoy Seychellois and international cuisines, fresh sea food or tapas and celebrate views of an orchid garden or the C’ote d’OR. There really is something for everyone at this stunning hideaway.
excellent from start to finish
