The Hotel is located in the North-East region of Praslin, the second largest island of the Seychelles, at the end of the famous Côte d'Or bay, in a colourful and exotically scented tropical garden.

The luxurious bungalows of the hotel L'Archipel nestle in the hillside overlooking a lovely secluded beach called Anse Gouvernement.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Located on beautiful Praslin Island. It is the home of Vallee de Mai, the fabled botanical forest said to be the Garden of Eden and Anse Lazio, voted most beautiful beach in the world by travel publications.

Hotel L'Archipel is set in a large private estate surrounded by coconut trees and tropical blooms. Each of the 30 rooms has a veranda that faces the ocean, where guests can enjoy an al fresco breakfast. There is a beautiful swimming pool and a private beach for cooling off. There are two restaurants, a beach cocktail lounge and a casino bar to enjoy. The cuisine is a tantalizing blend of French and Creole. This island of tropical forests, exotic plants and flowers, huge granite boulders and the most beautiful palm fringed beaches is an idyllic oasis perfect for relaxation.

There are several activities available to you at L'Archipel. For snorkeling and scuba diving, a short boat trip to Saint-Pierre islet gives the chance to swim amid a beautiful coral reef teeming with schools vibrant tropical fish. You can windsurf, deep sea fish or go on catamaran trips and helicopter flights. A one-hour sail away is the quiet island of La Digue which offers the perfect day trip, where you can explore the island on bicycles. Nature reserves of Cousin and Curieuse are easily visited on day boat excursions, and the only 18-hole golf course in the Seychelles is on Praslin.

Best of all, Praslin has two villages with incredibly friendly people and you can explore any area by foot. You are not limited to your hotels dining room, as there are several fun, local Creole and international style restaurants to discover.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Awesome place, lovely hotel, coral sand, great food & diving. 30 min coral beach walk to several other restaurants in the village, but a la carte was delicious. Praslin pro divers on site a real bonus... Thanks J-P

Review:   Amazing beachfront location tucked into mountainous cove. Calm water great for swimming, paddling, snorkeling (many fish, sting rays). Pool and restaurant very nice too. Breakfast full of selection. Only negative on our trip was that check in took way too long - lobby attendant could not seem to focus on task or had adequate help for coinciding matters.
