We have just returned from ten days at the Ocean Jewels Resort, where we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary, totally chilled and relaxed, what more need I say.

This is a delightful facility made all the more attractive by the warmth of the welcome and the care taken by all the staff. Brenda was happy to help when we were caught short with condiments, etc. On the next trip we would stay in one of beach apartments as the noise from the main road could be intrusive during... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The appartment was spacious and well equipped. Furthermore, the owners were very helpful and friendly. The Ocean Jewels Resort also has a very nice beach area with hammocks and sun loungers. There are bus stops within a few meters of the resort, however, we would recommend renting a car to explore Praslin. One minor... More

We spent five excellent nights at Ocean Jewels Resort and highly recommend it! We made an advance booking directly with Brenda; it was simple and easy and a deposit held our reservation. We enjoyed a spacious, very new and very beautiful one bedroom apartment that was nicely furnished and included everything we needed. It had a combined living/dining area which... More

Brenda and Paul made this such a smooth stay while we were in Praslin. Even prior to getting there, they were very responsive to emails, where they helped us book a rental car upon arrival, provided information about the ferry and flight info from Mahe, and even gave us their personal thoughts (which was nice, as I had thought maybe...

Our stay in Praslin couldn't have been better thanks to Brenda & Paul. They arranged the car, the boat trip and the visit to the Lemuria (Only way to access Anse Georgette and Petite Anse Kerlan). If this wasn't enough, Paul provided us with great tips about what to do in order to enjoy/see as much as possible on the... More

Both accommodation were spacious, clean, and with well equipped kitchen. We read some bad reviews about apartments facing the road (people complained about noise), so this is... More
