Hotel L'Archipel

Discover Hotel L'Archipel

Besides a private beach on the east coast of Praslin Island, Hotel L'Archipel is a charming boutique hotel with views over the sparkling Cote d'Or bay. Here at this secluded, family-owned hotel, you'll receive a real Seychellois welcome - friendly and informal. It's perfectly located for discovering all that Praslin has to offer, including the Vallée de Mai National Park and the gorgeous Anse Lazio beach, as well as visits to the laid-back neighboring island of La Digue.

Most rooms have fabulous views over the bay and are scattered around a natural hillside amphitheater, amidst swaying palms and delightful gardens of hibiscus and frangipani trees; not surprisingly, the higher up the hillside you are, the more spectacular these views. This is particularly true in the late afternoon and makes the idyllic setting for taking in the fabulous sunset. The hotel welcomes families although there are no specific kids' facilities. The activity center can assist with water sports as well as arrange a variety of excursions. Hotel L'Archipel is also an ideal choice as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday.

"Although the snorkeling is great straight from the beach, head over to the rocks to the right of the hotel where you'll usually discover more marine life."
