Le Duc Hillside belongs to the neighbouring Le Duc de Praslin hotel, and is located up a hill behind of one of Praslin's most beautiful beaches, the Cote d'Or.

The view from the villas is truly incredible, allowing you to admire the whole bay and the ocean as it stretches out in front of you. Thanks to the elevated location, this view is almost unparalleled on the island. Spend your holiday in style and comfort, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, and right next to one of Praslin's best beaches.

At midday, why not stop by the Café des Arts for a small snack? Le Dauphin restaurant then makes the perfect end to the day, serving up traditional Creole dishes and international delicacies. Both restaurants offer lunch and dinner options, with Café des Arts serving up fine-dining seafood, while Le Dauphin offers Creole fusion cuisine, with scrumptious buffets and set menus on alternate days. Café des Arts is well-known across the island, and is one of Praslin's best eating spots, so guests won't be disappointed by what's on offer. Be sure also not to miss out on the Chill Out tapas lounge bar, which offers a more relaxed option, serving fine tapas, cocktails, a selection of beers, and Spanish wines. Chill Out is also Praslin's number one entertainment spot, open till late at night, and the only place where you can eat until 2am over the weekend and 1am during the week. Another high point of the hotel is its spa area, located right next to the hillside estate.

The hotel also offers three bars: Charcoal Bar located at Le Dauphin, Blue Octopus located at Café des Arts, and the Chill Out Tapas Lounge Bar.

Activities and specials:

  • Located up a hill beside the Cote d'Or beach.
  • The neighbouring hotel, Le Duc de Praslin, is located further down, closer to the Cote d'Or beach, and offers three restaurants and bars, a pool, and a spa area. Don't forget to try the Café des Arts, which is one of the best restaurants on the island.
  • Start your evening off with a delicious cocktail at the tapas bar.
  • The hotel will be happy to organise boat trips and island excursions for guests, as well as non-motorised watersports equipment.

The villa is a dream, not easy to reach, but a great view. The rooms were very big. Kitchen well equipped. It was very clean, nice that there was a pool. The breakfast in the hotel a dream. Very nice staff. If we are 8 again, gladly again.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate

★★★★★ 01.10.2018

This hotel was simply our best place to stay in Seychelles. We were fortunate enough to get a free upgrade to the villa with its own pool. Of course we did not want to leave. Bedroom overlooking the Indian Ocean and St.Pierre. It's hard to put into words if you did not experience it all yourself. Simply fantastic. However, it is not for people who are afraid to drive a very narrow road with some 30% slope and very very sharp turns. Personally, I did not dare, but my husband and son did it very well. The air conditioning of the car should be turned off best, otherwise the small car has trouble coming up. And for breakfast we had to go down to the hotel. The ride took only 3 minutes. You could also walk. Although it is not far, but by the slope you needed about half an hour downhill. Uphill I did not try it ;-) The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was extensive enough for us.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
