An enchanted oasis


Experience unique nature in the utmost comfort and with an impeccable service

Il luogo

Praslin island is a jewel set in the Seychelles archipelago awaiting to show you the most spectacular and unique nature you have ever seen.
Exotic birds, tropical fish and giant tortoises live in harmony in this lush oasis, one of the rare stretches of virgin forest.
You will find complete serenity by the sea, on a coral beach of this tropical island, abandoning all your worries: the fragrances and stunning colours of the Seychelles will be an unforgettable experience.

The Seychelles archipelago is located in the Indian Ocean, 1600 km from the east coast of Kenya. It comprises 115 islands, 40 of which are granite islands and 75 coral atolls. Uninhabited until the seventeenth century, the sailors of the East Indies company were the first to land here in 1609. Praslin island is a tropical paradise; aside from the beautiful beaches, its main attraction is the Vallée de Mai forest, one of the rare examples of virgin forest and one of three places in the world where the “coco de mer” palm grows in the wild. The Seychelles, thanks to its isolated position and late colonization, are home to many unique species that cannot be found elsewhere in the world. Giant tortoises live only in two regions in the world: the Galapagos and the Seychelles.

Climate In the Seychelles the seasons are regulated by trade winds, blowing from the south-east, usually from May to October, with a dry climate and a slightly fresher   temperature. The south summer starts in November until April with north-westerly winds and a more humid and rainy climate. The average temperature ranges between 24°C and 31°C throughout the year, while the temperature of the sea is approximately 27°C-29°C. During the year the sea currents, linked to the winds, may cause the presence of algae and sand-flies on all beaches. Information regarding the climate is indicative only, based on annual averages. We are witnessing a worldwide climate change and thus it is not possible to provide more accurate information.

Clothing Summer and informal clothes, but don’t forget a rain jacket, hats, sunglasses, rubber shoes and a heavier item of clothing for the “winter” evenings (from July to September).

Medicines It is recommended that you bring your own standard personal medicines and other most common drugs such as antihistamines, antibiotics, steroids, anti-flu medicine, intestinal disinfectants, band-aids, sticks with ammonia, ear drops, sunburn lotions,   high-protection creams. We also recommend to contact your doctor in any case for more appropriate advice regarding the type of medicines suitable for the trip. Please remember this is a tropical area subject to sudden climate changes, which can cause an increased presence of insects and can sometimes be annoying. Any such insect/mosquito bite does not normally represent a risk of infection, merely causing itchy skin depending on the different individual pigmentation. Hence, it is highly recommended, according to personal sensitivity, to purchase insect repellent products.

Minors Unaccompanied minors cannot stay at the hotel.

Pets: Not allowed.
