On the beautiful island of Praslin, at the northern end of the incredible Côte d’Or beach, the sleek Acquario Villa offers an idyllic, peaceful holiday accommodation, which can be booked with either self-catering or breakfast.
2 × Superior 1-Bedroom Apartment (up to 2 people)
1 × 2-Bedroom Family Villa (up to 4 people)
Activities and specials:
- The villa is located just a stone’s throw from the north end of Cote d’Or/Anse Volbert beach.
- Shops, restaurants, charter boats, rental cars, a diving school, and a bank can all be found nearby as well.
- Decorative granite rocks lend the estate an imposing, individual Seychelles flair.
- You have the choice between self-catering or booking breakfast.
Upon arrival at the Acquario Villa on Praslin, natural stone walls and beautiful tropical plants and palm trees greet you, along with white banisters and bright yellow pillars. On the left-hand side stands the quaint reception house, which shares many stylistic features with the rest of the estate. A few steps further, guests are met by a staircase, flanked by huge granite boulders, leading up to the villa's restaurant. Behind the saloon-style door at the top lies a comfortable dining area, where breakfast is served each morning for those who want it.
Besides that, what else does this simple accommodation offer on first glance? As well as the excellent location, close to the beach, the house is surrounded by unbelievable peace and quiet, as well as the tranquil sounds of nature. The tropical garden ensures a stay with plenty of privacy, during which you can get away from the stress of daily life and breathe. Simply relax and do absolutely nothing in the furnished outdoor area that surrounds the property.
The interior of the Acquario Villa serves up a wide range of possibilities in Creole ambience, ensuring an authentic background for your holiday. The four Standard Rooms each offer a comfortable double room with a spacious bathroom and shower. A lounge area with kitchen, as well as a veranda, are also available for use, but are to be shared with the neighbouring rooms of the same category (assuming these are also booked when you go). These rooms are therefore particularly attractive for couples travelling together, or for families who want to relax in freedom here. Those looking for a greater degree of privacy can consider the two Superior Rooms, which have kingsize beds, a bathroom, and their own lounge/kitchen each, as well as a private veranda. The separate house - the Family Villa - with two bedrooms and bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a veranda allows yet more independence; even if just two people book this house, the other room will not be rented out at the same time. All of the units come with air-conditioning, as well as a TV, radio, stereo and WiFi, allowing you to stay caught up with your loved ones back home via your smartphone or tablet.
Praslin offers several options for excursions and other possibilities. The Vallée de Mai UNESCO World Heritage Park, for example, contains the Seychelles-typical Coco de Mer palm tree, as well as numerous bird species. Besides that, the nearby island of Curieuse with its giant tortoise population can be reached swiftly by boat, as can La Digue. In the evening, why not take a stroll along the beach and watch the sunset, or settle down on the villa’s balcony and let the day fade away.

Facilities: Double bedroom, bathroom with shower, air-conditioning, TV, radio, stereo, free WiFi, safe, shared kitchen/lounge/veranda (with the other Standard Rooms), partial ocean view, garden view.

The trade winds between December and February will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin. This may make the water a little cloudy but also provides yet more evidence that the underwater world around the Seychelles is in top health. Please note that the opposite coast of the island of Praslin does not have this effect.

Nice accommodation, well located on Anse Volbert, equipment a bit old and compared to our other accommodations by far behind, the parking situation could also be a problem when fully occupied Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice and extremely helpful ladies - I felt very comfortable. I love to book the next time Acquario Villa. For me perfect location, close to Anse Volbert and yet very quiet. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Home a bit long given our arrival with a baby, could have been a little faster to take care of us and we have never seen the owner during the stay it's a shame. Its staff is very nice by cons, very good fish that was cooked and proposed the first night. The apartment very well, functional, clean and big. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Our family villa was a bit old-fashioned, except for the brand new huge flat screen TV :-), but that made it really cozy. In the kitchen everything was available for daily use, it was thoroughly cleaned every day, the girls were all super nice and helpful. The breakfast incl. Great fruit plate and eggs as desired was totally ok for us. One evening we got cooks from Nora ... the delicious fresh fish incl. Side dishes was so plentiful, that we got full again the next evening. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very clean and friendly staff. Nora has always taken care of our well-being. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great service and extra towels for the beach. We once accepted the dinner offer (fish and chicken curry) from manager Nora. It was one of the highlights of the holiday and was enough for another meal. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Here we felt very comfortable. The apartment was functional and functional, the breakfast was good and the care of the staff was excellent. The proximity to the dream beach is great. What has affected our stay was the constant barking of the dogs on the neighboring property. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
we were very satisfied, helpful friendly people. The spacious apartment optimal and very clean. The German speaking tour guide was very helpful and friendly. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The concept of guest house is mastered to perfection, a very discreet presence since everything has been designed so that one is fully autonomous and all the necessary utensils present. Acquario or how to be at home away from home! Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Everything was very clean, well-kept facility. We felt very comfortable. Nora? We received very friendly. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Clean and practical. Close to Diving and one step away from the village. The extremely kind mistress. Food cooked by her very good. I would stay there again. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
clean accommodation, friendly staff, was unfortunately a bit far from the shopping Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was clean, but on the edge of the village and only on the island road within walking distance. The owner was very friendly and attentive, every day was cleaned and everything was well arranged. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Simple but very clean and functional accommodation. It's all there, what you need. Air Condition works flawlessly. Kitchen well stocked. On the last day a new Rooter and TV in the room was installed. Very friendly and reliable service. Dinner is bookable and plentiful. Breakfast very plentiful, especially with a large fruit plate. It would be very helpful if the guest had clear access to the nearby hotel beaches (Paradise Sun and Domain de la Reserve) (but I was not sent away) and could possibly provide a sketch. 120 m from the house there is a masonry bathing place, the assignment is unclear (but no one had any objection to use) (west of Paradis Sun). It would be very helpful if the house could regulate this as a kind of associated bathing area and in the context could eliminate the garbage there. Beautiful and barely visited beach on the left about 20 minutes walk (Anse Posession) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
clean, friendly, very helpful, a bit dangerous way to the sea or in the place Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were greeted very friendly by the manager Nora. We had a very clean and large apartment with a sufficient, useful kitchen equipment. The apartment was thoroughly cleaned daily and Nora was always at our side with help and advice. The guest house is located on the Anse Volbert and thus about 200 meters from the beach and various shops and restaurants. We booked a rental car through Nora and would still like to have made a trip to the neighboring island, but this literally fell into the water, as it has been raining heavily for two days. We felt very comfortable there! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was ok. The reception of a staff a bit careless and seemed pretty annoyed, but the boss, whom we met 2 days later was very helpful and nice. The house has totally changed externally. It is now blue white. Before yellow white. As in Greece. For security reasons, all windows and glass doors were barred here. If you wanted to go to the terrace, you had to open the large gate with a padlock and then open the sliding glass door. It had felt something like "behind bars". Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very friendly and always helpful and also spotless accommodation. We stayed for 5 nights the family villa, this has very comfortable mattresses and a virtually silent aircon. Super Dusche.In the kitchen are no spices / salt / oil ect. Not bad but good to know. The beach is about 3 minutes walk along the road and either via the Diveshop or the Hotel Paradise Sun to the beach. From the villa you have no sea view. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Actually very nice, but we had the misfortune to get a room without direct access to the balcony, but with two huge rocks in front of the two windows. Good for amateur geologists ... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good reception, good service, attentive staff. The negative point is its proximity to the road and therefore relatively noisy. On the other hand, we did not understand that we should share an apartment with other tenants. We had the chance to live with friendly and discreet people. I think the formula is made for people traveling together. We did not read well and are therefore solely responsible for this misunderstanding. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
We are very satisfied, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
unobtrusive place but very close to the beautiful beach of cote dor. very clean and very spacious. good breakfast Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Great accommodation and the food of the hostess just perfect. Very clean the rooms were made. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Perfect accommodation for a family. Quiet location. The villa was clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was great, friendly and helpful staff. Clean accommodation, good facilities, very good location, every day new beach towels, free Wi-Fi. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything was perfect, the guesthouse was a bit out of the way, but the resort was within easy walking distance. The landlady was very concerned about us and the entire staff was very friendly. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were welcomed friendly and with a cool drink. All staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Everything was very clean and always nicely decorated. We had the family villa on top of the mountain. Here you have heard nothing from the street. The single beds of the second room have been converted into a double bed with an overlay. The breakfast was adequate and served as a buffet. There was always fresh fruit. Egg dishes on request. Highly recommended is omelette with ham and cheese! The boss Nora has twice cooked us excellent Creole. Absolutely try! The bus stop was only minutes away. Beach, supermarkets, restaurants, take away - all not far away. We explored the island completely by bus and on foot. Highly recommended is the pizzeria and the Italian Gelateria. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation was close to the beach, cleaned every day and the beds decorated with flowers. Once Nora cooked us very delicious. Kitchen and living room have we shared with other guests, which (coincidence or intention?) In the same constellation on the way and from the same city as we were. Yes the world is just small. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
If you were looking for the hair in the soup, you would not find it. Everything at its finest. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super location 10min from the most beautiful beach of Praslin, and the best country. Super clean, and equipped. Kitchen, living room, bathroom with double shower, bedroom with air conditioner. Cleaning every day, minimum breakfast. I suggest doing it at home to save money. Staff helpful and full of advice. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
When I arrived at the guest house of Acquario Villa, I was greeted warmly and I was immediately shown the grounds. I was surprised in my room then with a nice bedding. The next two days, the bed was always nicely decorated. The premises were large, clean, the bathroom was in a very modern condition. Strangely, there were two shower heads in the shower, one of which was missing the bracket, which did not bother me at all. Although my room was very bright, but anyone who ran past it, could look into my room. I always had to close the curtains. That was sometimes a bit awkward, but also on it one imagines. There was a large kitchen, which I shared with another couple from Germany. We each had our own fridge. It was a pity that it was no spices or similar. or oil / vinegar, so you had to get that first. And the cost of living is not that cheap in Seychelles. I had booked the guesthouse with breakfast. For the price it was absolutely sufficient. Toast, local jam and every day a nicely decorated "fruit platter" / a fruit plate as well as coffee, tea, banana cake, but also sausages (and omelette?) Made up the selection. The beach on the Côte d'Or is only a 5 minute walk away with a small secret walk, and another 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket. Although the beach was littered with seagrass at this time of the year, it was just lovely. The staff were all friendly. I met the housekeeper only a few days later, but I could also turn to her in case of problems. I would still recommend to always take Oropax. The guesthouse is located in a curve on a street and yet it is still there with his cars and vociferous music up or down. Thankfully my room was not right on the street. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very large and good apartment quiet location good breakfast and nice staff Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A great clean area. Our room was nicely bright and adequate by size. The adjoining living / dining room with kitchen we had for ourselves, since no other guests were quartered. But also four people would have had enough space. We were regularly asked if everything was ok. The guest house was not far from the sea. The beach could be accessed via a footpath, so you did not have to walk on the street. The breakfast did not convince us. There was always fresh fruit, but eggs only on the first morning. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice facility not far from the beach (5 minutes walk to the Anse Volbert) cleanliness excellent, very friendly and punctual staff. Large and varied breakfast, very nice breakfast room. Located on the street, did not bother us. Nice veranda, very large and well equipped kitchen. Ideal for self service. In the area maybe a bit much concrete, but you can recommend it. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
really great, only the nearby beach is only usable at low tide. The owners are great. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
All transfers more than over-punctual and always !!! Respect The hostess Nora very friendly, nice, helpful. Always reachable by phone. The accommodation was clean, about 5 minutes from the water, but in the evening you have to walk a bit further to the Starand and the Restaurans because the "shortcut" is about a hotel area. Unflushed take flashlight or other light source. From 18:30 it is pitch dark !!! Gerene again and again :) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very nice staff, very clean and spacious house but need to be modernized! hearty breakfast, and thanks for the delicious dinner prepared by Nora at our request, beach and nearby dive club through the hotel Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Nice house but room a little small and too close to the road and the home and the balcony. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The reception is excellent (Nora). The location is on the axis leading to Lazzio Cove. In contrast, not really close to the shops of the Cote d'Or. We were surprised that the kitchen and living room are shared with 2 other rooms. So is better suited to a group of friends than a single couple ... Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The staff was very friendly. The room was clean. The breakfast buffet was absolutely sufficient. The owner asked every time she met you if everything was ok. The location of Acquario was great, within a few minutes walk you were on the Côte D'Or. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
There is a neighbor with 3 dogs and sometimes a lot of noise. The road in front of the garden was a surprise.
The apartment was very good.
We stayed only 2 nights during our visit to Praslin. Despite short-term shift of the stay by a day very friendly reception. Very clean room and bathroom with access to shared kitchen and living room. Breakfast with Nescafe but with lots of fruit. The location is not optimal; Although there is access to the beach after 100 meters, but you can walk past it quickly. Dr Strand is beautiful but belongs to the Pardis Sun Hotel; I do not know if it is free for free use. Otherwise very good value for money, unreservedly to be recommended. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice setting with very charming and helpful staff. Clean house. Particular attention brought to the training of the beds in the morning. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Friendly reception, everything was clean and the location is very nice. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful villa, friendly welcome (only place where we are greeted with a small welcome cocktail). No half board, you have to go back to the beach to find a good restaurant by taking unlighted roads, a real danger when you know the blue bus of the island that graze you. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Upon arrival, our apartment was not available and we spent 2 nights in a "broom closet", without wardrobe, but with an ancient, disgusting fridge that was so loud that we had to leave it at night. The gas bottle for the stove was in the room. For this we got 2x breakfast for free. In the booked apartment then a broken toilet. Overall, bad interior lighting. The provided hair dryer can not be plugged in the bathroom. Wi-Fi was during our stay, although several times promised but still only for a fee available. Attention, no real beach access! Only at low tide and until 17.00 clock you can get to the sea through the diving school, then the gate is closed and you have to take a huge detour along the driveway in purchasing. Nora, the administrator is almost never there, only tel. reachable. Otherwise clean, good mattresses, the cleaning staff very friendly and helpful. We would have enjoyed a barbeque evening, but probably no longer offered. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Manager very welcoming pleasant room despite the bedding that would be to review Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Transfer top. Extremely nice staff and owner. Very helpful and friendly! Loving refurbishment of the room. Clean. Procurement and advice on rental cars and insurance very good. Gladly again! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Accommodation was very good and clean. The staff was helpful, but we had the feeling that sometimes the motivation is missing, especially at breakfast. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Clean area with great breakfast. Very nice people. 3 min. Walk to the beach. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We felt at home in the guesthouse. The rooms are very big. Always clean and our bed was always beautifully decorated with flowers and swans. The hostess is really great and super friendly every day she has asked if everything is OK. Breakfast was also delicious and it was always a bit changed. The location is also perfect in 15 minutes you are right in the happening. We would book it again immediately Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The transfer worked perfectly. The staff and especially the boss of the guesthouse were very friendly and we were very well provided with tips for Praslin. Bookings of boat trips and car rentals were uncomplicated and competently executed. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
