The Hotel L'Archipel is located in the middle of an exotic, scented garden, at one end of the well-known Cote d'Or in the north-east of Praslin. The hotel itself consists of 32 luxurious rooms situated in a picturesque hilly landscape, with direct beach access.
9 × Senior Suite (up to 2 people)
2 × Family Suite (up to 4 people)
5 × Superior Room (up to 2 people)
Activities and specials:
- Thanks to its beach-side location, the hotel offers ideal conditions for a holiday spent lying on the beach or swimming in the ocean.
- At the end of the beach, near the granite boulders, there is an excellent spot for snorkelling.
- Canoes, stand-up paddle boards and snorkelling equipment (mask, snorkel, fins) are available free of charge.
- Further sporting activities: Excursions to neighbouring islands, boat and fishing excursions, deep-sea fishing, bottom fishing, scuba diving as well as rental bikes (for a fee).
- To ensure a pleasant stay, the hotel offers a laundry service (fees apply).

The luxurious rooms of this hotel blend in perfectly with the picturesque landscape that surrounds it. Here, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the nearby beach and the crystal-clear water of the Indian Ocean. The turquoise-coloured ocean, the white beach, the granite formations, and the palm trees that can all be found nearby are typical of the Seychelles, ensuring a heavenly environment for your holiday. The hotel's own beautiful beach then stretches out in front of the vast, imposing Indian Ocean.
The hotel offers two different restaurants, the Feuille d'Or (in the main building near the pool) offers a delicious evening meal, while the Bon Mange (situated on the beach) serves up breakfast and an à la carte lunch. The restaurant's chef combines local Creole influences with the art of traditional French cuisine. Twice each week, the menu consists of a traditional Creole buffet, which is always a special occasion, and well-known across the island. Between the restaurant and the pool lies the smaller cocktail lounge, where you can enjoy a delicious, exquisite drink, including the Piña Colada, which is truly a joy.
As a guest of this luxurious hotel, you'll have the choice of one of four different room categories. All of the rooms are in villa-esque buildings, separated from each other, and all located slightly above the beach, ensuring an incredible view of the sand and the ocean. There are deluxe, senior, executive, and superior suites available, all of which are similarly-equipped, differing only in terms of their location and size.

Elegant, very close to the Cote d'Or, it meets just the quality / price ratio. The location is still magnificent. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
just great, warm atmosphere, very friendly staff, great service, we felt immediately comfortable Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great facility with its own charm. Again, our room was spacious and well maintained. We had a room upstairs with a great view over the bay. This hotel was the price performance winner on our trip. Highly Recommended! We would have given the hotel even a star more. You can here wonderfully directly (3-4m away from the water) on the beach breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also here was the ZDF :-) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel where the staff is great. Top location, perfect food, breakfast on the beach a madness. Two evenings buffet during the week including a Creole with animation. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel, almost everyone understands the French which makes things easier. The meals are of very good quality, the rooms very spacious, very clean, very beautiful frame very well maintained Staff very kind, welcoming, polite. We feel pampered. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Nice facility located on the mountain. Nix for the dysphagia; We were lucky enough to stay in the main building. Therefore, the way to the reception, the Pol and the dining room was not very far; Beach not necessarily suitable for swimming (rocky / shallow / sea grass). Seaweed was always swept up again and again. Due to this, the sandflies were awakened, which feel at home in the grass. Have the then get to feel through some unpleasant stitches. Had HP. Gourmet food was 50% great, the other days well. Breakfast was very good, adequate, and near the beach. Positive: - Attentive staff - Room very spacious / large Negative: - Large bathroom, but bad light for makeup and shaving - When showering the bathroom was flooded, as no separation was available - Bad light in the closet, incidentally, also a bit small We had on the first day a bike from the hotel borrowed (10 EURO per person). The three days after that we had a rental vehicle booked in advance via Seyvillas. Tip: Most beautiful beach: Anse Lazio Supermarket about 700 m far on foot to reach the road Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great room, great view, great beach, very clean. Staff super friendly. We will come back ! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel, impeccable service, succulent meal. The almost private beach and the pool are beautiful. Only disadvantage a little far from everything. Room a bit dark Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Great location of the bungalow, very nice and clean rooms, service staff restaurant very friendly, restaurant very expensive, unfortunately had a lot of seagrass on the beach, but otherwise, saw some "lemon sharks", hotel partners for boat trips unfortunately very unreliable (once we came back much later as planned and once a snorkeling trip was not carried out as confirmed, so unfortunately we had no way to make one more, it was on the last day in the hotel was very annoying!), about 15-20 minutes to nearby Cote d'Or with many good and cheap meals Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Loved the boutique nature of this hotel. Food was excellent, room enormous although a little dated. Beach was fantastic and we loved having breakfast on the beach
Very good location, all destinations are easy to reach from here. Very large rooms, excellent service. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were warmly welcomed. When we first entered the bungalow we felt very comfortable. The staff are very eager that the hotel guest can enjoy a nice holiday. The breakfast and the dinner were very good. In the hotel you can feel that worked with attention to detail. We would recommend this hotel 100 percent. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A very good hotel. Perfect location in a bay at the end of the access road. Very quiet. Canoe and stand up boards included - possibly snorkeling equipment, we can not say exactly because not used. Very good service, very clean and friendly staff. Food very good for us. We would especially like to thank Pierre, guest and customer service manager, who made our stay significantly positive. We can recommend this hotel without exception. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
well maintained, beautifully located, beautiful newly renovated room with flaws (drain clogged, sheets not clean, toilet lid off). Defects were eliminated immediately. Service front desk: medium, tendency bored. Pool, restaurant: good, friendly, partly wrong food (understanding problems in English)? Breakfast: good and choice adequate. Dinner: portions rather small. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything great. Wonderful bungalows, delicious breakfast, great hotel beach. The air conditioning was a bit older and therefore quite noisy. Everything else perfect. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Fantastic! The individually between trees and on a slope in the forest standing, beautifully furnished chalets with beautiful balcony terraces are really the finest. Since the plant is located on its own access road, there is no traffic - total peace. Therefore, there are no restaurants or supermarkets nearby - you need a rental car. But the dining options and the excellent service in this hotel in the open restaurant on the first floor or directly on the beach - or on request the table is really placed on the sandy beach - are great. If you want, for a small fee all-day and small meals, for example, very good pizzas, Greek salad, etc. in the Bundalow. There are also hotel kayaks to explore the huge, deserted bay. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A great hotel with a very well-kept gardens, a great view of the bay and the opposite. lying beach. A nice veranda and a great restaurant, bar and pool area. Again, you can enjoy pure peace and is very well taken care of, if you have the need. The people were very friendly, especially the Barmitarbeiter, the very hosted appeared and chatted with us and we got to know each other a bit. It is great that you meet people from other countries (eg Sri Lanka) and you can exchange ideas. The food was also very good, nice was eg the daily ripe fruit at the breakfast buffet, the evening Creole buffet. The rooms were very nice big, the air conditioning really. The only small drawback was that the cleaning staff in the room did not automatically refill towels and toipaper and the minibar was not refilled, although the concept of the hotel for the mini bar was good. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
For the price paid, bad service. No drink water included, additional costs incredibly expensive, no hot water, if the sun does not shine (solar system). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice house, trained staff, great food, great location. Only restriction: the seagrass. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We are very disappointed with the Hotel L'Archipel. It was sold as a 4 star plus hotel. In fact, it is at most a 2.5 star hotel measured by German standards. The only plus is the location. It is located at the end of a small bay with many palm trees. The beach is very fine-sanded, but has almost every day large swarm of algae. Now comes the negatives: 1) The cleanliness hapert very: There were many ants in the bathroom (come from the sewer of the bath) and even some large ants in bed. There was also a spider web in the bathroom. On our question, we were only succinctly answered that Seychelles is a tropical island. That's no excuse. In our previous hotel in Beau Vallon everything was very clean and there were no ants in the room. We had to buy insect repellent ourselves and spray it everywhere in the room every day. The maid did not wipe the floor so much dust was there. 2) The hotel was advertised as luxurious. But the room facilities in the deluxe room are old, simple and partly not functional. The doors on the cabinets can not be closed because of wrong hinges. Even the room door does not close properly. It runs water from the air conditioning, so that our suitcase was wet under it. The toilet seat is much too small and narrow for the toilet bowl. They were always afraid that they might break. The holder for the shower head does not work. The toilet flush is very shaky and threatened to fall down. We were just hoping she would last until we left. The hooks in the bathroom are screwed up so high that only basketball players get it. 3) The offer of breakfast is very meager. The fruit was often dried out. We ate dinner in the restaurant on the day of arrival. Since the allegedly "famous" Creole buffet really did not look good, we ate ala carte. After ordering we waited more than an hour for our food (it was already past 10pm and we were very hungry accordingly). The chef just enjoyed singing and dancing instead of cooking. Only after our request and request, that we are very hungry, came the dinner. As it was obviously cooked quickly in a hurry, the fish was still a bit raw. 4) The houses have a strange architectural style, they look like Bavarian farmhouses. We thought we had landed in the Black Forest. Nothing against Bavarian farmhouses, but it just looks weird if such houses are on a tropical beach. The conclusion is that we can not recommend the hotel. It looks good on photos on the website. But it is very different in reality. That pretty much affected our vacation. So fingers of this hotel! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very complete, service, accommodation and catering. Nothing to say Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Cleanliness in this hotel was not objectionable, very friendly staff in the service area, at the front desk, however, the friendliness seemed very aufgesetzt.Die location was very good, the beach in the hotel area was not quite as appealing but in a few minutes was the extensive beach of Cote d`or to erreichen.Das restaurant left a few wishes unfulfilled. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything great!!! The breakfast and dinner were first class in taste. The portions for dinner were much too small. There were no side dishes such as rice. Without a lot of bread I would not get full in any evening. That's why my wife and I would not book this hotel anymore. In the past 3 years we have not had this problem in other hotels. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Transfer to the ferry and ferry was very poorly organized by Creol. We did not exist on any list, missed the ride-on ferry, no one told us we had to take care of tickets in the outhouse. Stand around with luggage in the heat. We decided to return by plane. Rebooking worked out, the transfers to the airport instead of the port had been ignored, although we had pointed out. The accommodation was the best I have encountered in Seychelles so far. Excellent rooms, great food, very attentive staff. Excellent location! A drawback in all accommodations - no storage space in the wardrobes. Only minimal options. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything top, great location of the hotel, the rooms spacious and clean, good breakfast with very friendly staff. A star deduction for car hire service by our supervisor, the rental car was very scratched on the outside, bumper moored behind with two screws and inside really dirty, especially the rear seat - but the vehicle is driven and we survived it. For a vehicle of the "hotel fleet" we would have also paid 50 euros, but would have gotten a car in tip top condition. Was just too much effort to complain - such discussions "mess up" the holiday. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very clean. Staff was very helpful - villas are well laid out with lots of privacy. Beach is very clean. While breakfast was good and I loved that they kept the pastries warm, dinner and lunch were not that great. There is not much close, so they have a captive audience.
Love the pool and the villas.
The staff is very nice and the service is good. Unfortunately, despite advertising, there was no bike to borrow or the two wheels we got were totally junk. The food is excellent Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A beautiful hotel in a fantastic area! All rooms / bungalows offer a lot of privacy and a fantastic view over the bay. Even at night, the entire system is pleasantly lit and creates a cozy atmosphere. The food was very good! The staff was also very friendly - there was nothing missing. The only criticism: it is - depending on availability - a late check-out offered. Against payment of 150 €. It should be possible, against payment, of course, this late check-out to search - in advance! Or it should be planned that guests who are picked up at 5 pm or later can use their room for a longer fee. It's just not a nice holiday, on the last day and before a 24 h - home travel from 12:00 clock to sit around with packed suitcases. The provided "shower room" is large, but not really nice. Too bad. Otherwise, everything was perfect - until the early checkout. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The transfer from the airport to the hotel and on departure to the ferry worked well. The hotel has a beautiful location, unfortunately was very much seaweed on the beach. The service in the hotel was disorganized, especially at dinner. Here you were led to the table, but then you had to be lucky, if someone felt responsible for the table - order drinks, food service, etc. It worked very well, on other days not at all. The cleanliness in the hotel was great. We also had a rental car, for two days very recommendable. This one comes to all the beautiful beaches and sees much of the island.
