Travel Blogs from Praslin Island
... Spent yesterday with my diving friends, really great to hear about the 6 weeks that I missed diving and catching up on the gossip of camp. Thanks to Kris and Martin for waving me off this morning. Wishing you all safe flights home xxx Last night we all are out and enjoyed drinks on the beach watching the sunset. Safety arrived in Nairobi, whoop whoop. Tonight I do nothing but relax, tomorrow afternoon I meet the people I will be travelling ...
So I've made it back to the Seychelles and met up with 4 of my diving friends so today will be a good day. Need to catch the plane to Nairobi tomorrow which is a little daunting. The sun is shining and the sea is calling, must have a dip being as I missed out on 7 weeks of ...
... fair price. The way in which a body shop promotes may have something to do with the level of work you are going to get, reported by one body shop proprietor. His particular opinion simply put it to get referrals, and please don't pin your final decision only on a snazzy On line ad campaign. Also, if you find a large amount of personnel in the front office, that may imply that the shop needs to charge higher rates to be able to keep up that ...
... After a short boat ride to Praslin our taxi was waiting to take us to the airport. Since we were early, Robert offered to bring us to the end of the island before taking us to the airport. We also picked up his wife and dropped her off in that area. He took his time and is was better to be in his air conditioned car instead of at the ...
... I learned from the Doctor’s House museum on Curieuse Island, where they had a display in his house (the doctor’s house was for the appointed doctor who took care of the lepers on Curieuse Island – usually a Scotsman appointed by the King). For years, nobody knew where this mysterious double lobed nut came from. It had washed up sometimes on the shores of India. They finally thought it came ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Reserve Hotel Praslin Island
Nous avons passé 6 jours à La Reserve et nous confirmons que cet hôtel jouit d'un très bon niveau de prestation.
I stayed at La Reserve for 6 days with the mrs and was the best holiday ever. Hotel just reopened after being partially destroyed by Tsunami a couple years ago and what a fantastic job they did. We stayed in a Deluxe room, wow! The bathroom is as big as the room itself! Food was very good, a mixture of local and international cuisine and staff are ever so friendly compared to other restaurants we ate at. The highlight of the stay must be the excursions provided by the hotel as they are mostly FREE! There are trips to most of the neighbouring islands by the hotel boat and they arrange BBQ lunches on the beach. The sundown cruise is a must. Theres also a huge swimming pool with very trendy swim up bar, sometimes service a bit slow, but really worth sitting at for an afternoon of cocktails. Hotel is not far from Anse Lazio which is a must. Definitely the most beautiful beach we have ever been to.
A short stay in Paradise
This hotel reopened in December 2006 after being badly affected by the Tsunami. The hotel is excellent, the rooms are large and well equipped and the restaurant is first class. the staff are friendly and efficient. The location on the beach is beautiful. The swimming pool is large and never crowded.
It is hard to think of anything that could be done to make this hotel better.
Nous y avons passé 4 jours en avril 2004 et avons trouvé cet hôtel exceptionnel. Une nourriture excellente, un restaurant incroyablement romantique sur une terrasse sur pilotis au-dessus de la mer.
La Reserve is located in a delightful location with its own beautiful but small beach (Anse Petite Cour). The view from the beach is breathtaking. We were given a massive room in the colonial building up the hill. This would not be suitable for people with walking difficulties, as there were lots of steps to go to the top of the building where our room was.
Un pedacito del paraíso
Hemos estado allí por cuatro días en abril del 2004, y el complejo nos pareció excepcional. La comida era fantástica y el restaurante era increíble, romántico con una terraza sobre el mar. La habitación era bastante linda, con una cama con postes con una cortina para los mosquitos y un abanico.
Los atardeceres desde la terraza eran increíbles.
El mar del frente es un parque marino y podíamos disfrutar del esnórquel maravilloso, así como también de unos chapuzones relajantes en las enormes piscinas. El hotel está sumergido en maravillosa vegetación, y no estaba lleno en absoluto.
También fuimos en crucero a la isla cercana con la barca que el hotel nos proporcionó para visitar un vivero de tortugas.
Regresaremos tarde o temprano.
Waren für 4 Tage im April 2004 hier und fanden das Ressort außergewöhnlich gut. Das Essen war toll, das Restaurant unglaublich romantisch, da es auf Stelzen auf das Meer hinaus gebaut wurde. Das Zimmer war wirklich schön, mit einem Himmelbett und nützlichem Moskitonetz gegen die Mücken und einem Deckenventilator. Die Sonnenuntergänge waren einfach atemberaubend schön. Das vorliegende Meer ist ein Naturschutzgebiet und man konnte ausgezeichnet schnorcheln oder einfach nur zur Entspannung in diesem riesen Pool schwimmen gehen. Das Hotel ist in eine wunderschöne Landschaft eingebettet und überhaupt nicht voll. Wir sind auch mit einem, vom Hotel gestellten, Boot zur nahen Insel gefahren und dort eine Schildkrötenaufzuchtstation besucht. Früher oder später werden wir wieder kommen.
A piece of paradise
We have been 4 days in April 2004 and found the resort exceptional. The food was great, the restaurant incredible romantic on a pile-terrace on the sea. The room was really nice, with a canopy-bed equipped with a helpful curtain against mosquitos and a paddle fan.
The sunsets from the terrace were outstanding.
The sea in front is a marine park and we could enjoy a marvellous snorkelling around as well as a relaxing swim in the huge pools. The hotel is immersed in a wonderful vegetation and was not crowded at all.
We also cruised to the near island with the boat provided by the hotel to visit a turtles nursery.
Sooner or later we will be back.
This small resort is paradise on Earth. I spent 10 days at La Reserve in Spring 2004 & never wanted to leave. The food was exceptional, the beach, although small, was fantastic and the pool & pool bar are gorgeous & NEVER crowded. Be sure to take a snorkeling trip to Sister Island. There you will see more fish that you could possibly ever imagine. The resort is small & intimate. Definately a place to go to get away & relax (so remote that Castaway was filmed nearby). The rooms were clean & the beds firm yet comfortable. We had a beach front cabin that was very secluded. The restaurant on a dock or jetty is amazing. More food than you could possibly eat. Also, a special treat, is viewing the fish swim next to you as you eat (great for feeding too---it you don't like local specialties like "fruit bats" yuck!). Service was friendly & professional. It was the best vacation I ever had.
