“perfect boutique hotel with great view and wonderful host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

we stayed only one night before a boat trip for our anniversary and since we were the only ones having dinner that night we had the whole terrace for ourselves with candles everywhere. They even made an anniversary cake for us! Dinner was great!! we got the suite - what a nice treat and truly enjoyed our stay. wonderful views, lots of public space for the 4 rooms. would have loved to stay longer. Breakfast was large!!! I would highly recommend a stay there!

We did not stay at this wonderful 4 room inn but a couple of friends did and we visited with them and had dinner there. The view is just amazing. We met one of the owner over dinner and he was wonderful to talk to to and full of information. the food was just excellent, but the real deal is teh incredible views. Next time I come back to the Seychelles, and especially if I can bring my wife with me, we will definitely spend a few days in this great place.

Our friends got married in Petit Amour Villa in September 2012 and highly recommended it to us. After going through their website my fiancé and I decided that we can never find any better place to get married.

Petit Amour Villa is not just a guest house but a home, Michel and Jon will make you feel that you are not just a guest but a family member. I can probably write a book about Michel and Jon's hospitality, they really looked well after us. We had no stress in arranging a venue, dinner, drinks, bouquet and transportation for the wedding because all of that was taken care by Jon and Michel. Without them our day wouldn't be so special!!!!

Wedding was just perfect!!!!!! Thank you Michel and Jon for making our wedding so special!!!!!!!

We stayed in the villa petit amour 5 days in novembre 2012, in the master suite, a fantastic experience that i would strongly recommend to anyone who likes to be treated with care and attention. John and Michel are key in the experience which is quite unique, a balanced mix of personnal attention without being ( never) heavy. In fact, the feeling is more to be invited by friends rather than having a stay in an hotel. I travel a lot and can really confirm that this level of attention is reached only on very high end of hotel ( or airlines). For the rest, villa, accomodation, food evrything is perfect and the view.... Unforgetable. I recommend this destination without any reserves and hope to have the time to go back.

My husband and I were lucky to have received a week's stay at Petit Amour Villa as a wedding present. It is the perfect dream honeymoon destination. Very romantic, intimate and tranquil setting. Hotel boasts 4 beautifully decorated and comfortable guest rooms - we were lucky enough to enjoy the master suite which was a truly magical experience. Owners and hosts Michel and John were not only friendly and professional in their service, but really took the time to pamper us - that little something extra you do not experience at a large resort where you are just a number. Charming friendly staff and relaxing ambience. One of the strong highlights of our honeymoon was enjoying the magical sunsets by the infinity pool. The view is truly spectacular. One which we shall never forget. Thank you for such an unforgettable experience.

We were luck enough to discover Petit Amour from friends and decided that this would be the venue of our Valentine's Day wedding.

What makes the villa remarkable isn't the villa itself; although it is stunning in its chic design. It isn't the view; which is spectacular and it wasn't the food; which was delicious. The difference was the care and attention to detail from Michel and Jon. Nothing was too much trouble and they live the ethos of exceeding expectations. They helped us arrange transport and accommodation for our guests, a creole buffet for our reception which was a culinary delight and decorated the gazebo to make a perfect venue for our wedding. They even lit a chinese lantern for us to make a wish and arranged a famous singer to perform at our wedding (lucky for us she was also a guest in-house).

Thanks to both gentleman, our wedding weekend was just perfect. Next time, we will be back for longer.

We have stayed at many of the top hotels in Seychelles, and this was our second Christmas visit. The villa was fantastic a year ago, but it has continued to get better. Every detail was taken care of by the friendly and accommodating staff. The food was the best in the Seychelles, even my wife's gluten free diet wasn't a problem. Jon and Michel really push the boundaries of personalised service, catering in a way that a lot of the more expensive counterparts just aren't be able to match. On our anniversary they surprised us with a special candle lit bath (see pictures) Thanks so much and looking forward to our next visit shortly.

Room Tip: The Master suite is well worth the extra money as it is twice the size and has a large spa bath.
