We stayed for two nights at Carana Beach Hotel and our expectations were far exceeded. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and did not expect much as we did not ask for much. However, the team at Carana went over and beyond to make this celebration one to remember. From romantic dinners, beautifully setup towel art, a candlelit bath and anniversary cake, they did everything to make our short stay a memorable one. Apart from the unbelievable and friendly customer service, the rooms are well thought out and impeccable, the location is peaceful, the restaurants are wonderful and the new covid protocols are followed easily. A special thank you to Melan, Meggie, Iris, Bernadette, Gino, David and the rest of the wonderful team who looked after us so well. We look forward to returning to Carana Beach Hotel.

We arrived two couples for a 7 night vacation at the hotel. A stunning boutique hotel with a rare beach that looks like paradise. Very nice room with great view The food was usually okay. Even though the hotel was fully booked there was still a sense of peace and quiet. We decided to hold a vow renewal ceremony and the staff helped us exceptionally in planning and organizing the event. We would especially like to thank David the waiter who accompanied us throughout the week with professional service and special treatment. Just an amazing guy who always smiles and helps in any way possible. Another thank you to Laura who accompanied us and organized the stunning ceremony. Sure we will be back soon..!

One of the best stays i had in Seychelles and hotels. STAFF are the true assets of this brilliant and great hotel. It is a boutique hotel, value for money and greatly presented. Chalet are beyond beautiful, luxurious with great views (Ocean chalet). Clean and just perfect. Breakfast was ok, lunch was an exploration for the dishes and tasty with great value for money. With drinks you would pay around 40 USD per person. Dinner was fine dining and out of this world. Chef was excellent and a great one. Beach beautiful, staff very helpful and made the whole difference for us. Early check in as we came in early with flight. And we had a late check out with a very sensible rate which accommodated all of us. we booked through Anne who was beyond helpful. And gave us a great deal. Maggie, Bernadette, Danielle, Milan and many others whom i cant count where their with smiles and help to whatever we needed. We had a lunch on the beach with a table set up as a surprise one day. I had a birthday (secret) to my sister and they made it at the beach with a beautiful set up fit for a proposal. I will come again always and always whenever i go to Seychelles. The team really set the standards so high for us to benchmark.
