Our stay at Heliconia Grove was above and beyond anything we could’ve hoped for- not just because of the luxurious suite, equipped with anything and everything you might need to make you feel at home, and the perfect location, but even more so thanks to the absolutely incredible owner, Hazel! No matter what inquiries we had (and we had MANY!) regarding dinner recommendations, excursions, even car rental- Hazel assisted us (always with a smile, patience and a great energy) through everything and curated the most perfect vacation for us, no matter what last-minute changes we had and taking into consideration all our needs preferences and limitations (traveling while pregnant and all that jazz :) ). Heliconia has a grill area, kayaks and direct access to the beach and each villa even has a small pool which is pleasant to dip into..or admire from the private patio. The place is easy waking distance (by beach or road) from a couple of nice restaurants (which Hazel helped us discover and book) takeaway trucks and some supermarkets (should you decide to cook some things up in your fully stocked kitchen). Cote d'Or is a beautiful beach and although the tide may reduce it in size (also season dependent), we found it to be one of the better Praslin beaches with great sand, nice shade and not packed with people. We would absolutely recommend anyone visiting Praslin to stay at the wonderful Heliconia Grove- you’ll be guaranteed to have an incredible stay and a perfect vacation!

Excellent in all aspects. Very nice staff, especially Hazel, the manager, very helpful and supporting with everything we needed: car hire, info, ... The family village is very big and has everything you may require. Very ample room and bathroom, with a nice terrace and private pool. The location is amazing. Just by the most beautiful beach of the island. Particularly good for kids.

We have had a lovely stay at Heliconia Grove, a beautiful villa overlooking the sea (nr 7) But most of all Hazel (the manager) made our stay unforgettable, with the brightest smile and her sparkling personality she did the above and beyond for us!

We stayed in the three bedroom log cabin with our young children and had the most wonderful time. Just meters from the white sandy beach, it was a really restful spot hearing the waves crashing on the beach. The cabin was nicely appointed and had everything we needed. It is just a short walk from many lovely eateries either along the road or on the beach. We really enjoyed using the sea kayaks, with life vests and paddles available and someone to help you get launched into the water. Hazel at reception checked on us every day to see if we needed anything and was always on hand to help. We hired a car for the day to see the island which was great fun, exploring the coastal roads. We’d highly recommend this spot for a family or couples beach getaway!

Wonderful place 2 steps from one of the most beautiful and peaceful beach on the island, 8 bungalow with local architecture, all wood, very well decorated, high qualty bedding and shower, lovely terrace with jacuzzi. Note that most hotels are on the other side of the road while heliconia has direct access to the beach. The whole is managed by Maryvonne, divine, kind and very thoughtful. The best host! The villa has been prepared for our baby (high chair, pool barrier, cot). A great attention was brought to us throughout the stay. Kayak and barbecue available for free. On the other hand, absolutely avoid the boat excursions via Holiday charter which totally miss their safety obligations, not hesitating to maintain the excursion by storm. We risked our lives because of this agency.

A quaint little villa in the perfect location! Close to restaurants, stores, dive shops, and right on the most beautiful beach! The villa was clean and spacious, the dipping pool a nice treat before and after a hot day in the sun! The ladies in reception were so helpful and friendly, kayaks available anytime you wanted, and good WiFi! I’d recommend this place to anyone staying in Praslin!

All had been optimal: the weather, the accommodation, the service and the environment. The "villa" (actually a bungalow) had been a few meters from the beach. There had been hardly anywhere on the beach, where you could walk for miles. Six canoes also had been available free of charge. The resort manageress had been extremely helpful and friendly. about five restarants and two supermarkets are a few minutes beach walk away. The only disappointment we had is that the restaurants, although very appealing, only serve moderate tasty food. Seafood choice had been very limited and not in line with our expectations for an island teeming with a large variety of fish. the plunge pool greatly enhanced our pleasures when sipping sun downers.

We stayed for three nights in April. The bungalows and location is great. Very spacious and quite. The plunge pool was a great hit with our four-year olds in the heat. But what makes this place excellent and made it one of the best service experiences we have had was our host - Hazel She greeted us with big smiles and a thorough introduction to the site and the island. She made arrangements in regards to car rental and reservations. Most importantly she had great empathy towards our situation, as we were travelling with a boy with a very hefty case of chickenpox. On the day of depature, she made sure, we were allowed to fly, by taking contact to the local airport and after checkout she had arranged for us to have another bungalow where we could stay for free for the rest of the day, as we had an evening flight. Thank you so much for helping us in a challenging situation. Can't recommend this place enough.

Perfect Getaway for Couples & Friends who want to relax. The accommodations are very well thought out with all the amenities you would want for a small self-catering villa & a stones throw from an excellent beach. Super safe for all as the beach water has not little drop offs & goes out very gently on a constantly flat bottome ideal for small children as well if there's no waves. Free kayaks usage. Serviced daily. Reception staff very welcoming & helpful. We would certainly recommend & not hesitate to return.The owners obviously spent a lot of time thinking it out & it shows.

You can't go wrong. Great , friendly, helpful staff. Maryvonne and Hazel at the front could not have been more helpful, they know there island, where to eat, to visit, to make reservations, help with car rental, you name it they will help. The place is on a beautiful beach, great beach, short walk to restaurants, markets, shops, the fruit man, the fresh fish man, any thing you want is near by. The villa, great, in one word. Large bedroom with big bathroom, large living room area with T.V., nice kitchen with everything you need to prepare your own meals, two grills in the beautiful garden area to grill fresh fish on, and lets not forget the most important detail, the plunge pool, private plunge pool, what a wonderful thing on those hot days. The place is clean and run with care and professionalism. Thank you Maryvonne, Hazel and the entire staff at the Heliconia Grove.
