The Seychelles Archipelago is made up of 115 heavenly islands, ringed by palm-fringed, white-sand beaches, topped with lush vegetation and set in a dazzling blue ocean. With average temperatures of 22°C to 30°C year-round and coral reefs supporting over 1,000 species of fish, it’s no wonder that this treasure of the Indian Ocean is a world-class destination.

Le Duc de Praslin & Villas is a 2-minute walk from one of the ‘World’s Best Beaches’, Anse Lazio (a.k.a. Cote d’Or), on Praslin Island. One of this island’s extraordinary attractions is the primeval palm forest and World Heritage Site, Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve, where you can see the largest seed in the plant kingdom produced by the Coco de Mertreeat a staggering 17kg. Another popular attraction is the only 18-hole golf course in the archipelago.

Owner-managed, Le Duc de Praslin & Villas boasts two of the archipelago’s best restaurants, Le Dauphin and Café des Arts. Nestling in a garden flourishing with orchids and sprinkled with meditative fishponds, this exclusive hotel offers decadent romance, personalized service and a perfect location.
