We spend 5 nights here over The Easter holiday. The location is beautiful with its own private beach which is always quiet if you wish to have a relaxing day. Don't miss the other beaches on Praslin though as Anse Georgette and Anse Lazio are not to be missed. The reception staff are very helpful, my only criticism would be... More

I strongly recommend this hotel. It's a perfect place to stay in Praslin. The restaurant is very good. The staff is very kind. They have a good chef. The place to eat, On The beach, for the breakfast and the diner is really beautiful. The hotel is quiet as well. If I return to Praslin, I will stay to this... More

Recommended by Audley Travel and we could not fault it as a place to celebrate our anniversary. We loved our room set in the beautiful grounds and the restaurant on the beach provided varied menus and with consistently good service. The setting is perfect: day and night ( dining watching the stars was a highlight!). Perfect weather helped by warm... More

Lovely location, quite expensive, we had the biggest suite which was comfortable. Organised deep sea fishing through the beach guys, caught plenty!! It is only let down by the food which could be better, I am a bit of a foodie. Breakfast is good, it is the evening meals that need a little extra attention. Biking distance to the local... More

We returned from a lovely holiday to the Seychelles a week ago, and stayed at this very quiet and peaceful hotel. There are no "private" beaches as such in the Seychelles, but the beach in front of this hotel, is about as private as it gets-----it is at the end of a long curving sandy bay, and due to this...

Our trip actually was a couple years back, but it was definitely the high point of our trip to the Seychelles. Away from the obnoxious large imposing hotels, this one has an exclusive feel to it. At first you arrive and are kind of disappointed as the beach in front of the hotel does not look anything like the gorgeous... More

This is the third time we have stayed at the L' Archipel so we really like it and God willing we will stay there again the next time we are in the Seychelles. The location and surroundings make it irresistible for us, to fall out of your bedroom right onto the beach and walk in the sand to breakfast and... More

My wife and I spent four nights at this beautiful hotel during our holiday on Seychelles. The location is overwhelming! (see my attached photos). The hotel itself is located in a quiet position at the end of the bay with a beautiful private beach with palm trees. Our bungalow (DeLuxe room no. 15) was comfortable, very spacious, well equipped and... More

We stayed at L'Archipel for the first 5 nights of our honeymoon. We didn't get an upgrade but honestly we didn't need it as the villa we were in was of such a high quality. The big veranda had views of the ocean and islands and we saw some lovely sunsets from there. All villas are located such that there... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon for 6 nights and I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying on Praslin. We were welcomed with a lovely cocktail as we sat outside by the pool going through check-in (which was nice and quick). Our room was ready for when we arrived and we had an upgrade for our Honeymoon, lovely villa... More
