Hotel L'Archipel

Explore Seychelles

Set on the east coast of Praslin Island, Hotel L'Archipel is a delightful and charming boutique hotel overlooking the sparkling Cote d'Or bay. Here, you'll receive a real Seychellois welcome and somewhat different from the larger resorts. The hotel is perfect for those seeking a small, secluded resort and is great for discovering all that Praslin has to offer, as well as the neighbouring island of La Digue. It is also an ideal choice for a Seychelles island-hopping holiday.

Spacious cottage-style rooms are scattered around a natural hillside amphitheatre setting, amidst swaying palms and delightful gardens of hibiscus and frangipani trees. The hotel offers just 32 spacious rooms and suites, decorated in a Creole style and with magnificent views towards the ocean; all have a large verandah - perfect for lazy afternoons. Superior and some of the Deluxe Rooms are set higher up the hillside, while the Senior and Family Suites, as well as the remainder of the Deluxe Rooms are located closer to the beach. Deluxe Rooms are particularly spacious (60m²) and have a king-size bed, satellite TV and ensuite facilities. The Suites vary in size from 65m² to 120m² and have an additional lounge area.

There are two restaurants at Hotel L'Archipel - one of which is on the beach - both serving excellent cuisine. Evening entertainment is provided twice a week. There's also a gorgeous beach as well as a lovely infinity-edge swimming pool. In-room massage treatments can be arranged on request. Free wifi is available in the lobby/bar/restaurant area or chargeable in rooms.

Hotel L'Archipel has an active energy-saving policy; with over 200 solar panels, it saves over 28,000 litres of fuel annually and lighting costs have been reduced by 30% with the installation of LED lighting. Due to its steep hillside setting, the hotel is not suitable for the infirm or disabled. Children under 3 are also not accepted at L'Archipel.
