The small resort of L'Archipel is protected by a semi-circular, tropical bay on the edge of a private, sandy beach. With its colonial Seychellois architecture, high ceilings and large windows, L'Archipel has an airy and relaxed atmosphere.

The resort is a great choice for small families, and with its idyllic scenery, honeymooners will delight in L'Archipel's romantic ambience. Relax on your shady private terrace, or recline on one of the many sun loungers beside the fresh-water swimming pool and enjoy the stunning views of the bay.

If you're feeling adventurous, L'Archipel is a convenient base from which to explore Praslin. If pure relaxation is what you're after, enjoy unwinding on the scenic beach. A taxi-boat can ferry you to the various nearby islands to discover beautiful beaches and secret coves, or you can swim and snorkel off the sandy beach in front of L'Archipel.

Traveller Reviews

  • L'Archipel was perfect for us in every way, and we could not have asked for better accommodations in terms of location, ambiance, price and services. In particular, we loved the hospitality of the staff.

    Christina Ward, April 2011
  • Everything was extremely organised. From the connecting flight - to the transfer- to the hotel, we felt like royalty. The hotel L'Archipel was also very good - very friendly staff and the food was especially good. We ate so much and every evening was something different. I would definitely recommend this hotel and your company to all my friends.
