Seychelles airport

So after my worry that I will not be on the flight to Nairobi I have checked in, looks like I'm good to go, just need to get my head around visas when I land. My heart is racing and I haven't felt this nervous, excited and apprehensive since I first started this adventure. My leg held up to the demands of the trip from Birmingham to the Seychelles with being awake for over 24 hours, it was extremely swollen but the cold beer helped me forget ...

Departure for Praslin

... 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 ...

The Wretched Vallee

... 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

    Allez-y !!!!


    Je vous recommande vraiment cet hôtel !

    Un accueil chaleureux, des chambres spacieuses très bien décorées dans le style créole face à la mer et très propres. Le personnel est vraiment sympathique et à votre écoute. La cuisine est inventive, variée et excellente. Des excursions gratuites vous sont proposées régulièrement vers les autres îles (la digue, curieuse, coco...). Vous avez à disposition le matériel pour le snorkeling (gratuitement). La piscine est très belle, grande et propre. L'hôtel se situe sur Praslin une île magnifique et préservée. L'endroit est très calme. Pour ceux qui recherchent un hôtel genre club avec animation et beaucoup d'activités sportives passez votre chemin !

    Je conseille très vivement de mettre des chaussures en plastique ou de plongée car il y a beaucoup de coraux voire d'oursins ou de poissons qui piquent ! Je me suis moi-même fait piquer par un poisson lion, c'est très douloureux et j'ai dû me rendre à l'hôpital pour des injections. Cela arrive très rarement mais c'est toujours bon de le savoir !

    Pour terminer ma critique l'utilisation d'internet n'est franchement pas terrible et la clim dans les chambres fait beaucoup de bruit (mais il y a un ventilo en plus).

    En tous les cas nous retournerons très bientôt dans cet hôtel armés cette fois des pieds à la tête !

    Bon séjour à ceux qui iront prochainement. Vous passerez d'excellentes vacances !



    Nous avons passé 6 jours à La Reserve et nous confirmons que cet hôtel jouit d'un très bon niveau de prestation.

    Nous avions réservé initialement à l'Archipel et suite à un manquement de l'agence de voyage, nous sommes arrivés sans réservation confirmée. Heureusement, le responsable de la réception a été charmant et nous a obtenu un hôtel au moins équivalent : La Réserve.

    Les chambres ont été récemment refaites (Chambre Deluxe) sont spacieuses, bien équipées et joliment décorées (tout en restant sobre).

    La piscine est vraiment très agréable et vraiment grande.

    La nourriture est excellente et le cadre magnifique (petits déjeuners et diners sur un ponton avec vue sur les poissons).

    Un très gros plus : les excursions sont inclues (Curieuse/St Pierre, Ilot Coco/Grande Soeur, La Digue). Seules les taxes éventuelles et les déjeuner doivent être payés.

    Le seul point négatif concerne les activités nautiques (style kayak, planche à voile, ...) qui ne sont pas disponibles. Il faut avouer, que de toutes les façons, le temps nous aurait manqué pour en profiter, tellement il y avait de choses à voir.

    Enfin, il faut noter que le personnel a été charmant.

    Fabulous resort with excellent service


    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.

    Un petit coin de paradis


    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 chambre était vraiment belle, avec un lit à baldaquin fermé par un rideau bien pratique pour se protéger des moustiques, et un ventilateur à pales.

    Les couchers de soleil sur la terrasse étaient exceptionnels.

    Juste devant l'hôtel, il y a une réserve naturelle marine et c'était fabuleux pour nager sous l'eau, ou pour se détendre dans les immenses piscines.

    L'hôtel est niché au coeur d'une végétation merveilleuse et n'était pas bondé du tout.

    Nous sommes aussi allés jusqu'à l'île voisine avec le bateau que nous a procuré l'hôtel et avons visité un élevage de tortues.

    Nous y retournerons certainement un jour ou l'autre.

    Great location


    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.

    The bedroom was fairly clean, but the bedding and curtains looked very worn, and worst of all, the toilet was dirty and very smelly (smelled very stronly of pee, excuse my language).

    But this was almost forgiven as the service and the food was excellent. The meals are taken on a semi covered jetty over the sea, which is quite romantic, and from there you can see thousand of fish swimming around. However, the breakfast was not so good, compared to the hotels we have been to, in England and in Asia. The staff was the best I have encountered, so friendly and helpful. Also the excursions, such as the ones on the boat to Curieuse Island, were free.

    The road from la Reserve to the Anse Lazio (which has been voted one of the 5 best beaches in the world), is heavenly. I doubt if there is a better place in the world.

    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.

    Ein kleines Stück Paradies


    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.


    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.
