We spent 4 days in Iles de palmes and it was very relaxing. Nice quiet place, bungalows by the sea, but not good for swimming. Car rental is a must in Praslin, the best beach Anse Lazio is about 10-15 mins drive from the hotel. Service was good and welcoming. Breakfast is served but good. includes fresh fruit, toast, homemade... More

The place is spot on beautiful, the Chef was very helpful and the rest of the staff was very sweet too. The problems we faced were walking to the reception every time we had work with the resort staff. There was no air condition in the cottages, just one fan in the 1BHK cottage. Also, the Wifi only works at... More

Madam perhaps you did not know you were booking at an Eco resort. Here your carbon foot print is deliberately kept to a minimal. We maximize other aspects of your trip. The fan has four speeds, not one. The cottage is 66 square meters on the beach. The price you paid was not for the Tajmahal. It was quite frugal.... More

Our group stumbled upon lles des Palmes during a morning walk from our hill top location. While wondering the grounds we happened upon a splendid waterfront dining room harboring their restaurant. There is a lack of fine dining opportunities on Praslin and especially ones without the snooty factor. We made reservations for that evening and were thrilled by the menu... More

Our family chose Iles des Palmes as our place to relax and enjoy the Seychelles while celebrating my in-laws' 40th wedding anniversary.

We spent 3 weeks on Iles des Palmes in December 2014. This was our 5th stay here over the last 15 years. It is amazing how the owners develop the place and keep it up to date.

We stayed at Iles des Palmes a couple of years ago and liked it so much that we wanted to visit again, particularly as we we were aware it had got some upgrades: a Restaurant, pool and pool bar.
