For a family get away, it doesn't get better then this. With two young boys, our room was spacious enough to not only accommodate us but allow them space to play. The bed was comfortable and large enough for all four of us though the boys started out the nights on their sofa beds. The staff were friendly and obviously... More

The Indian Ocean Lodge is a place that will give you a pleasant stay, unless you are expecting more than you are paying for. So, you have to ask yourself, what do you want from your stay? We mostly needed a place to sleep between trying to see everything there is. We had a great time! The staff was never... More

If you're considering Indian Ocean Lodge for your stay on Praslin, you probably are on a bit of a budget. This is one of the cheaper spots (for Seychelles) and therefore, as with most things, you get what you pay for. First of all, the beach here is crap. It's strewn with seaweed and there is a very, very limited... More

A relatively small hotel with good standard! It was nice with the size of the lodge and rooms are newly renovated with tasteful decor, the size was excellent and in addition there was a lovely porch. Location is very good right next to the beach, the negative was that it is so incredibly shallow water it was actually a bit... More

All the staff here is with very bad attitude. We lived here for three days and received supercilious looks instead of smiles. We gave generous tips and smiled to them, but received no smile at all. We don’t know why. The experience is the worst in Seychelles, and almost ruined the happiness of holiday. The room arrangement is good, although... More

I have had such bad experience with the service this past December, when my husband and I visited the Indian Ocean Lodge on the Seychelles that I will never visit them again or recommend them. Unfortunately, because the food was great. We did not feel welcome.

Stayed at Indian Ocean Lodge for three nights. Coming from having spent the first four nights on Mahé at an excellent small hotel, we were very disappointed upon arrival at Indian Ocean Lodge. From the rude welcoming by an equally rude receptionist to the non-existent farewell and thank you from an even more rude receptionist at departure we regretted having... More

We have a Maison on Eden Island and every trip to the Seychelles we do a family boat trip across to Praslin, we anchor boat in front of the Indian Ocean lodge and spend a night or two. We love it the rooms are gorgeous and its a very relaxed atmosphere.

Had an amazing time at Praslin. Stayed at the Indian ocean lodge for 2 nights. Fantastic for a 3 star property. Rooms was absolutely lovely, it did smell a little musty but after speaking to the locals I think this may have been from the floods they had earlier this year. The food was fantastic. We have the buffet one... More
