TravelPod Member ReviewsBerjaya Praslin Resort - Seychelles Praslin Island
There are certainly several more luxurious resorts on Praslin but this resort has everything anyone could ask for delivering a relative value. Powder white sand beach, a five star PADI dive shop on the premise with excellent diving, very good buffet breakfast, six restaurants and three grocery shops within walking distance , on site car rental and island tours. It is 15 minutes from the ferry jetty and same from the airport. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the WiFi is a bit slow but usually works (fee). Our "deluxe" room was spacious with a great view of the pool area.

I will write two words that I have never uttered together…it was too hot. We boated to Eden Island, bought more cinnamon buns and cabbed to Reef Apartments, anxious to sit inside for the rest of the day and use up our pre-purchased internet time.
... out of the water. Me and Jack paddled in and Mom swam. The kayak got stuck on some coral and me and Jack got really frightened.
We got back and had lunch. Later after lunch we packed up and took the ferry to Mahe. We went straight to the cab and rode to Reef Apartments. We were so excited to be there because there was internet. We tried ...
