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

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 in this lovely ressort for three weeks and felt like home. The whole location is very well kempt, neat and comfortable. You can spend long time just watching funny birds or searching for the baby rays in the bay, seeing the flying foxes in the evening or crawl the giant turtles under their chin.
