Carana Beach is a small and intimate boutique resort located on the northern coast of Mahé Island in the Seychelles. Set on the shore among giant granite boulders, white powdery beaches and the sparkling Indian Ocean, Carana offers a calm retreat where simplistic and understated design allows the pristine natural surroundings to take centre stage. The beach is just steps from each chalet so you can wake up to aquamarine waters and a fresh sea breeze, and sleep to the gentle sound of waves lapping on the shore. Carana is flanked by tropical forests and colourful gardens, allowing guests privacy and tranquillity.

A relaxed atmosphere and friendly hospitality allows you to totally unwind - spend the morning at the beach or pool, reclining on a day bed and ordering drinks and snacks from the restaurant. In the afternoon retire for a siesta or a massage at the wellness spa. Snorkelling, island hopping trips and day excusions are easily arranged. The largest island within the Seychelles Archipelago, Mahé is just waiting to be explored. Well signposted roads make it easy to hire a car for the day and discover the rich and colourful Creole culture, French-inspired cuisine, secret coves, and the lush Morne Seychellois National Park.

Ocean View Chalet

Each suite offers lovely views and a contemporary, chic aesthetic that is perfectly matched to the light and breezy ocean setting. All chalets are designed to cater to couples as well as small families, and are equipped with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, satellite TV and a private deck with loungers and seating.

Ocean View Pool Chalet

Ocean View Rooms feature with a private infinity pool and a Nespresso machine.


Comfortable daybeds and lounging areas at the beach and poolside allow you to luxuriate and take in the beautiful ocean views. The bar area resembles a chic ocean club and leads directly onto the beach, while the tranquil lounge is a space where you can sink into a comfy sofa with a good book. Relax, unwind and pamper yourself at the wellness centre or spend lazy days watching azure waters and swaying palms at the 20-metre pool.


A lot of the ingredients on the menu are sourced from the resort’s family-owned farm on Denis Island, and you can also expect your fill of freshly-caught line fish and other sustainable seafood. The restaurant is open throughout the day and beach orders from the pool bar mean that you never need to leave your comfortable day bed!
