Your "own" beach? Emerald waters to snorkel? Lush garden? Calm? Not ready to pay the 5* service? Then this is your spot. Pick one of the villas on the seafront, take the ground floor that comes with a veranda if you like that. Boat shuttle is regular and takes 15 minutes. Beach is clean as all the rest. Room outfits...

It is the snorkeling that makes it worth to choose this Hotel . Snorkeling is worldclass. The naturralist biologist guide was good and a big pluss for this place. Breakfast and desserts are poor. Dinner is ok. Water and other drinks are very expensive ! The bed smelled.

We were in New Emerald Cove hotel. We came with the last boat from Mahe on Praslin at 16:25, which I think is bad connection beetwen islands so you need to have on mind your plane should be before that time or you will stay for one night on Mahe. When we came on Praslin there was a boat for... More

A holiday at New Emerald Cove can be whatever you want it to be - Total relaxation and decadence, or active and recreational. The hotel and its staff are excellent, the fact that it is only accessible by boat is a huge plus - you get a sense of total isolation and retreat, despite the fact that there is a... More

The reviews here are rather off-putting, and based on our experience now somewhat outdated. This hotel is not frequented by many English - we were the only ones there, being surrounded by French, Germans and Italians. That's not a problem because all the staff speak English, but for a more representative view of the hotel look at ratings on the... More

First of all be aware that this hotel is in Praslin but to arrive there is only by boat. The hotel has a boat that goes to and come back from the jetty area each 1 hour and the last time is 18:15h, after this you have the option only at 23h. So you get totally dependent of this boat... More

The sea in front of the resort is outstanding! Snorkeling is very good: sea turtles, batfish, surgeon fish, trumpet fish, parrot fish, etc. I loved the whole atmosphere: beautiful gardens, nice pool, great food, giant tortoise, lot of birds. They offer a wide range of excursions. Things you probably won't like: the beach will disappear with high tide, waiters at... More

Our entire stay at Emerald Cove was abysmal from start to finish. We emailed the hotel three times regarding a shuttle service prior to arriving and we never received any response. We had to rely on a taxi man at the ferry port to direct us on what we needed to do to get to the hotel. On arrival, we... More

This is a nice hotel for honeymooners but not as much for more practical tourists, since it's quite expensive and there's no road access. The facilities are nice and well-kept with the sole inconvenience of lack of light because of the venetian blinds. The huts facing the ocean are the nicest. The bathrooms are quite modern, with shower cabins and... More

Great place to relax and enjoy a calm and relax life style. Rooms clean and well kept. Food needs improvements as not enjoyable. Very basic menu, poor quality (staff canteen style, rather than hotel guests)
