Le Duc de Praslin 4 Star 4 Star

This small and friendly family-owned hotel is ideally situated close to the famous Cote d'Or Beach, acknowledged as one of the best in the Seychelles for relaxing and swimming. The main restaurant and bar are surrounded by a lush tropical garden with orchids, a variety of hibiscus and tropical palm trees. Meandering through the gardens is an ornamental pool full of colourful carp. Six giant tortoises reside in the grounds, the oldest of which, Josephine, is 105 years old.

A small pathway from the hotel leads directly to the beach and the Café des Arts, the hotel’s beachside restaurant. Within walking distance are two diving centres, restaurants, casinos, and souvenir shops.


Ideally situated on the north-east side of the island, the hotel is a 30 minute scenic ride from Praslin airport and 25 minutes from Baie Ste Anne jetty.
