Les Villas D'Or

Our rating: Medium

Rooms

Choose from either one-bedroom or two-bedroom villas. The villas are all set in tropical gardens and have a large veranda, spacious living room and bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.

Location

Les Villas D'or has a tranquil location on the white sand Côte d'Or Beach on the island of Praslin, the second largest of the Seychelles Archipelago.

The beach is picture perfect, soft sand leads to a warm turquoise sea, fringed by tropical jungle. In the grounds of the hotel, it's possible to meet giant tortoises and spot exotic birds.

The area round Les Villas D'or is quiet and relaxed, but there are several restaurants and bars within a comfortable walking distance.

Food and drink

Breakfast can be served in your villa and a traditional Creole dinner can also be arranged by the hotel for a supplement. The hotel can also arrange for you to have dinner in one of the restaurants nearby, with transport provided. There are local shops to buy groceries, but don't expect large supermarkets. There are also several restaurants and bars within a 15 minute walk, however, if walking at night we recommend you take a torch as the roads are quite dark in the evenings.

Families

Due to the self-catering nature of this property, Les Villas D'or is ideal for families. Family groups can fit comfortably into the two-bedroom villas, which sleep up to five, or the one-bedroom villas that sleep three. High chairs and cots are available and the hotel can arrange babysitting.

Facilities and activities

Only steps away from the white sand beach, the Villas D'or is perfect for paddling and swimming in the warm Indian Ocean and relaxing on the loungers provided by the hotel. There is also a small swimming pool ideal for a cooling dip, and there are loungers outside each villa for sunbathing. The hotel can arrange bikes and kayaks, and Internet access is available and payable locally. There is also a small selection of DVDs available for hire from reception if you want a relaxing night in.

The hotel can help arrange diving with reputable local dive schools.

The diving around Praslin is superb, from dives suitable for beginners through to experts. Most locations are between a 5- and 50-minute boat ride and all are less than 20 m (65 ft) in depth, so the majority of qualified divers can explore them all. The only deeper dives in the Seychelles are in the outer islands that lie off the continental shelf.

Look forward to swimming among blenny and pipefish and seasonal visitors such as manta rays and whale sharks. The best dive months are March - April and September - October, but whale sharks visit in October - January and August.

Local excursions

The hotel will help arrange many activities in the local area such as tours of the island, boat trips and fishing. There is a spectacular 18-hole golf course within a 45-minute drive that varies from palm-lined fairways to those that climb up into the jungle.

This is a really friendly and relaxed property on a gorgeous beach and is ideal for those looking for a quiet and peaceful time in beautiful surroundings.
