The Indian Ocean Lodge is located on the beautiful Grande Anse beach on Praslin, and offers guests the chance to stay in a beautiful, natural located on the Seychelles' second-largest island. Guests of the hotel will be able to enjoy breathtaking views over the ocean and the beach from their rooms.
Activities and specials:

- The hotel comes equipped with a pool and a spacious sundeck.

The Indian Ocean Lodge is located on Grande Anse beach in the south-west of Praslin. Thanks to its pool, and the beach-side location, guests can be sure of leaving all of their worries behind here as they relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the island. The furnishings of the hotel are also kept in natural, neutral colours, and the clean lines and stylish decorative features create a really nice space for your holiday.
Anyone who enjoys relaxing in calm, serene surroundings will find themselves right at home at the Indian Ocean Lodge and Grande Anse, which lies in front of the hotel. Some of Praslin's other beaches are also well-worth a visit, including Anse Georgette or Anse Boudin, each of which is fantastic in its own way.
The UNESCO World Heritage Vallée de Mai is another absolute must-see during your stay on Praslin. This huge natural reserve is home to the Coco de Mer palm tree, unique to the Seychelles islands. It's best to plan a whole day for this trip in order to fully explore all of the different hiking paths that wind through the park.
In the evenings, why not try out some of the international and Creole cuisine at the restaurant. Thanks to the open-plan design, guests can be sure of a friendly, welcoming ambience where they can fully soak up the Seychelles holiday atmosphere.

Nice large room with a large balcony and sea view. The bathroom and the shower are getting a bit old. Huge, changing and very good breakfast buffet. Price / offer: Very good. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We loved this hotel which was really well run and friendly with excellent food and service. The long beach was an added bonus. It had the best type of African ambience about it which having lived and worked there for some 40 years was most welcome.
The accommodation was very nice and clean, the staff very nice. The breakfast was good and the complex was well maintained. We could from the property directly to the beach, which was not even 10m before. Supermarkets and restaurants are nearby, but the prices in the hotel are ok. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Again, I forgive full marks. Yes, it is true, as I have read in many reviews - the hotel is not the youngest anymore and probably minor renovations here and there would not hurt. And yes, even the bathroom is not very modern. But - everything was always clean and well maintained, the simple and bright decor of the rooms we really liked. The air conditioning was quiet and readjustable, the fridge in the room is handy for getting cool drinks when you come back after a trip. And best of all, the large balcony / terrace with super comfortable chairs and the "daybed" overlooking the beach and the sea and the garden with wonderful mature trees. The girls from the front desk were always helpful and helpful. No matter what questions you have or what you need, be it the bus timetable, a rental car, a taxi, etc., etc. - you get everything there. And the rest of the crew in the restaurant, the gardener, the room service - all nice and friendly and that contributed a lot (at least for us) to a super comfortable stay. Thanks :) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The toilet was broken several times, seagrass on the beach, very small selection at breakfast Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super great hotel with direct beach location. Unfortunately this is true with the seagrass in July, but here we were warned. The beach is not usable at all in time. The breakfast and dinner was a bit poorer, but always delicious. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice small hotel area, right on the beach. Unfortunately, you could not use this, as everything was full of seaweed (the hotel but nothing for it). Food was very, very good and varied (buffet). Very friendly and courteous staff (except for a lady at the front desk). Unfortunately, the WLAN only worked on the last day. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful and spacious facility, where rest and relaxation prevails. However, the hotel is already getting old, which is clearly reflected in the otherwise spacious and well furnished rooms. The bathroom is not up-to-date anymore. Quality of the offered food very good and extensive. Nice pool, well-kept garden, beach but only limited use and not so nice. Personnel friendly, attentive and pleasant. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Room was very nice, but the rest so! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Compared to other hotels, the value for money was okay! However, a lot is already very shabby and close, and with little things you could improve the whole hotel already! The mats on the beach chairs were old and moldy, the outdoor furniture was partly shaky and weathered. Otherwise, all were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and lovingly prepared! The garden was well maintained and the hotel makes a very nice impression Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very worn. Outside area: beach chairs and cushions were very dirty and were moldy. Reception staff in places not very friendly. Not a nice beach. Right and left mangrove rivers that are led into the sea and smell very strong. No information from the hotel about the sandflies. We had over 100 stitches. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
OK but looks a little worn. The service was patchy . Lack of detail no one to bring in the sun lounger cushions so consequently when they got wet no one could use them.
The first impression at the front desk was very negative. The receptionist gave the impression that she was being harassed by our presence. She kept on phoning in our presence without interruption and did not pay us her attention. All in all, we had the impression that female staff in particular urgently needed training in customer orientation and friendliness. Otherwise, the hotel made a good impression and lived up to our expectations. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice bungalow in the garden. Always very good buffets every night! The location was ok, but you should rent a car to explore the island. A very nice beach the Anse Lazio is a good distance to drive. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Only the beach deserves the given stars. Excellent throughout with varied and particular cuisine, if you really want to find a defect is missing the wifi in the room that otherwise works perfectly in the common areas. At the reception they are able to solve any problem and request regarding excursions and rentals. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful structure, great food, the only thing very nice room, brand new but very small for four people (we could not even open the suitcases.The only malicious note was the sea practically impractical and smelly thing that you should report when you make the reservation Structure in which I would return. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
The personnel was very friendly and helpful. One evening we ate a lobster in the hotel, this was excellent. The cocktails are also highly recommended. The bathroom did not like us, as the shower was open and therefore always water rausspritzt and it was not clean. The room itself was very spacious and nice but unfortunately it was muffled. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Small but fine hotel. Good location. Everything you need is within walking distance. Hotel very nice. Beach but with a lot of Seegras. Can recommend the hotel. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel is a nice 3 star hotel with clean, spacious rooms and friendly staff. The food was okay, but only the breakfast is recommended. In the evening you can eat cheaper and better in the nearby restaurant. The hotel beach was due to the season only at your own risk usable, there were warning signs on which was warned of rays. However, a free shuttle to a nearby beach suitable for bathing is available once a day. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Location, cleanliness, service are good + the staff was always very friendly. Unfortunately, the pool area chairs + seating is not very inviting (dirty pads and very unkempt wood!). The room furniture would have to be overhauled. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Lovely place. Wonderfully furnished room with a wonderful terrace overlooking the sea. Large and functional bathroom. Thorough cleaning. Change of towels and daily toiletries. Supply of beach towels. Accurate Creole cuisine at the buffet, very varied and well cooked. Abundant breakfasts and dinners. Staff very personable and helpful. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
A good hotel, we expect the price. unfortunately there was only buffet in the evening. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
structure nice and in line with the standard of category, nice room, cleanliness "questionable" but decent but the thing that made us appreciate more the "pleasure" to go away from there was the beach or rather the bay and the sea in front of it that it resembled a "sewer" and you can imagine the disappointment of having at 5 meters the sea and a beach and not being able to use it (in the Seychelles then), a real pity because it is true that we were accompanied by a torrential rain that contributed to make it all the more sad (and this is not the fault of anyone) but that stinks (to alleviate the discomfort with my wife I attributed the stink to seaweed marches that were on the beach, but it was not true I think it was other or not only ). luck was that at this hotel we had only booked for three days and our journey continued for Mahè. Ps. it must be said that both the waiters and the staff were always very nice and helpful and that the structure has also organized shows of Creole music and other activities, very nice Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Great location with beautiful garden. Varied breakfast buffet. Room was okay but not like Le Repaire. Baden was critical because of stingrays. I am disappointed with the hotel manager. When I asked where I could switch back the rupees, she answered that one could not do that. I should buy gifts at the airport or leave something to the staff. Only after my insistence, she said, I should try it at the bank (5 minutes from the hotel). I found a bureau de change there. Also at the airport it would have been possible. For a manager a no go! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The transfers were perfectly organized and handled on time. Very professional and friendly team. The hotel staff are very motivated and also very friendly. Great reception at the reception. Cozy clean room with nice sea view. So should be vacation. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
