What a relief, after my search for just the right place to discover the well-kept, prettily landscaped grounds of The Islander. There the owner/manager and island native Miette" as she is known, along with her grown children and a team of loyal, memorable personnel (Zita, Madeleine and Josianne) run a property where the individual clients, be they honeymooners or lone adventurers like myself, get equal respect and care. Here the emphasis in on who you are, not on how much money you will spend. Each little cottage is quaint, immaculate and authentically furnished, including a well-equipped kitchenette and little private patio. The property is perfectly situated toward the cleaner, quieter tip of the island on Anse Kerlan, which in my opinion is one of the best series of pure, white-sand beaches on Praslin. The bus stop and several good shops are within easy walking distance. The hotel has its own sweet little cove from which you can swim at any time of day or evening or, regardless as to whether your cottage is directly facing the water or not, be out in seconds with your feet in the sea, your eyes on the stars, and a broad and beautiful view. Additionally, I have seen many a sunset on many a maritime trip, and these are without a question some of the most sensational. Finally, there is the Capricorn Restaurant which serves tasty local dishes in a setting as lovely inside as it is out. Although I vowed every night to try another place to eat, I always ended up dining on the premises where I could feel the sea breeze and gaze out at the water, or even go sit on the sea wall between my appetizer and entrée. Best of all, however, was the local wit and wisdom character and generosity of the resident family whom I already miss tremendously!

We stayed here five 5 nights, and it was a pleasant stay. The apartment was large, very clean and well maintained, but I can’t help thinking that it seemed a bit old and with a dull interior. It was well equiped with everything we needed though. A small terrace outside with two chairs, but only a small table, so we had to eat inside.
The staff were nice and helpful, and they can help arrange tours and rent a car. The main advantage is the great location by the sea, with sunbeds and a small private beach. It is also walking distance to Anse Georgette and Anse Lazio.
A few improvements are possible. The bed was ok, but the pillow was like rock. Beach towels are available, but for some reason can be changed only every third day. AC costs extra, which I don’t understand because it is almost impossible to stay without. An the internet connection is not the best. But still it can be recommended.

We stayed in Islander for 4 days last week and enjoyed every bit of it. We arrived earlier than expected and received a warm welcome from our hostess, Miette and the chef, Rakesh.
We got a early check in and just then we realized that we had left our bag with camera and money in the taxi. Miette and Patrick quickly came to help, started calling the taxi drivers around airports and affirming us that we will get it back soon and we got it real soon!
The place is well maintained, spotlessly clean, enough sun beds and sitting arrangements on the beach front, be it in shade or just under the open sky.
They provide free wi-fi which is best around the restaurant area, no coverage was there in our room. We had to come out of the room to have signal.
The property is less than 5 km from the airport and dot on beach. Petite Anse Kerlan is the beach name and it's a beautiful beach! No beach is private in Seychelles but you get a feel of this being a private beach. It has a supermarket at 2 minutes walking distance and you get pretty much everything there.
All the rooms are on ground floor, set amidst a tropical garden. Each villa consists of 2 units comprising a bedroom, attached bath, kitchen with dining area and a balcony each. Kitchen is well equipped for self catering, room is nicely furnished with an attached bath having a shower cubicle. AC is there but you have to pay extra to use that. No TV is there but who goes to Seychelles to watch TV!
They had decorated it with flowers which was a pleasant welcoming gesture.
The Capricorn restaurant is on the beach with indoor and outdoor sitting arrangements. The chefs are too good, we ate few meals there and they were excellent. We never thought of eating somewhere else.
I must mention the super-hospitable staffs who made every attempt to make our stay memorable. Miette, Josianne, Rakesh, Pradeep and all the other staffs whom I could not name here, were excellent.

Now the improvement areas.
1. They had provided toiletries which included just a soap. I would suggest to provide the shampoo at least. On a beach vacation, you need shampoo and conditioner and generally those are provided in all standard hotels.
2. Being set in a tropical garden, there are lot of insects and lizards. I understand that it's part of the ecosystem there but it would be better if those can kept out of the room at least. Probably installing a mesh cover on window and doors can help.
3. I would have preferred to have some replenishment for the tea/coffee maker. We had stayed in self catering hotels earlier and tea bags, coffee pouches with milk powder and sugar were always provided. We expected the same here but it was not. Miette provided me with tea bags when I asked for it though it's not something they provide. Having those will help as everyone does not self cater there.

From the moment you step into the property you are welcomed with a friendly smile, our Hosts Patrick and Miette provided the most friendly and comfy accommodation in this corner of paradise on Praslin. The rooms are well fitted out, all you need to self cater, but why do that when you have an excellent restaurant at your doorstep.
The Capricorn provided an excellent range of tastes for even the fussiest of mouths.
We had Breakfast in the Gazebo each morning, a great start to the day.

The beach setup has plenty of relaxation lounges in the sun or pick a shady spot and the private beach is safe for a good swim and to watch the evening sunset.

Highly recommend this sort after location. Be sure to book early.

A tortoise-pen is found close to the parking area and guests can feed them from the nearby grasses or leaves. The reception offers assistance for all your holiday requirements, such as excursions, fishing trip, diving, car rental, taxis, and more. The beach is a few steps away, providing the ultimate enjoyment of sun, sea and sand practically on your doorstep, and capping most every day with glorious sunsets.
