This Hotel was fabulous - great location, room was 5 yards from the beach (see photo) and what a fabulous beach. Very good food & nice pool - great to sit out at night & watch the 'light show' in terms of lightening, as obviously with it being a tropical climate there were regular storms out at sea. Staff excellent... More

We enjoyed our stay at Indian Ocean Lodge, but wouldn't suggest it for long stays or for couples on honeymoon, not because of service or quality, but perhaps more for romance and luxury factor? The manager went out of her way to make us feel at home. Dinner was buffet style, and lots of Creole style food - so be... More

This place is gorgeous! It feels like a family-run business and as a consequence you feel incredibly included when you stay here. The manager is very friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate our party of 7 guests. My ground floor room smelled slightly of damp and I had a few ants sharing the room with me but it didn't...

This was our first stop of our honeymoon on the Seychelles. It was very nice. We liked the atmosphere and all the friendly people working there. What I was a great fan of, were the amazing lamps in the room made of COCO DE MER coconuts. Very nice! The hotel room was very comfy, I think. My husband found it... More

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
