Thinking of staying at L'Arcipel and Dennis Island and possibly the hilton on Mahe. does anyone know what these hotels are like we are looking for something luxurious and special for the honeymoon.

Aah you could not choose better. I sent my brother in law to Denis island for his honeymoon and they loved it. I got engaged on North Island and honeymooned on Fregate. I say you are on the right track a nice mix of hotels and islands. Congrates and all the best.

Great choices - you will absolutely love Denis Island, its so peaceful and relaxing and is a perfect honeymooners resort. The Hilton's beach is only small but big enough to sunbathe on and go for a swim, there is a good sized area around the inifnity pool for sunbathing and relaxing or you can sit out on your own private sun terrace and look out over Beau Vallon bay. The food is also excellent at Hilton and Denis.

I cannot say about L'Archipel as i've not been there yet, but it is a very nice spot with great views and i've seen some good reviews of it.

Have you spokem to a destination specialist yet? I would recommend Seyexclusive and Seychelles Travel, they might have some really good deals for Honeymooners and some treats like dinner on the beach or free spa treatments - i know we got some nice extras on our honeymoon because we used one of the above.

Ha it's a small world. These are the two places we stayed on our honeymoon many years ago. I thoroughly recommend l'Archipel, we go there just after they'd refurbished and everything was top notch. They have a very nice beach and you can paddle out to a little island called St Pierre which is very cool. Praslin has lots to do - make sure you get up to Anse Lazio it is out of this world.

Everyone loves Denis it seems except us. We were not too impressed. The weather was not great while we were there which didn't help but found the service cold and poor, the sports equipment lacking (no sailing, diving equipment very old and poor) and the beach was not that great. We would not return there.
