Whenever we claim an accommodation offers great value for money, we only do so if we're 100% sure of this fact. Le Duc de Praslin is one of those cases, offering high-quality facilities and a great location for less money than other high-class Seychelles accommodations.
Le Duc de Praslin is an exquisite 4-star hotel that stacks up well against European standards. The hotel is located within a tropical beach garden, right on the Cote d'Or. This beach offers ideal swimming conditions all year-round, far from a given on Praslin due to the weather. At the same time, the small Cote d'Or village is just a few minutes' walk away, giving you plenty of options for an evening stroll, or a meal in one of its mostly very good restaurants.
However, if you'd prefer to stay on-site, you can enjoy some of the best cuisine available on Praslin in one of Le Duc's own restaurants. The different restaurants offer a mix of international meals and local delicacies. Le Dauphin offers Creole fusion cuisine, including delicious buffets and set menus, served on alternating days. The hotel also organises evening entertainment in the form of live music. Café des Arts offers fine-dining seafood, and is among Praslin's best restaurants, ensuring guests won't be disappointed by what's on offer. Set right on the beach, the Café des Arts restaurant has earned its reputation as one of the Seychelles' best restaurants by creating outstanding, mouth-watering dishes, served in the most amazing setting. In addition, don't 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 still eat at 2 a.m. at the weekend and 1 a.m. during the week! Another high-point of the hotel is surely its spa area, which you can find next to the hillside estate.
The hotel also boasts three bars: Charcoal Bar, located at Le Dauphin, Blue Octopus, located at the Café des Arts, and the Chill Out tapas lounge bar.
Spa des Arts: Rejuvenating treatments for mind, body, and soul.
The Spa des Arts provides treatment menus that will soothe all of your anxieties and worries. The products they use are made from 100% natural herbs and oils, such as lemongrass, ylang-yland, lavender, coconut, and pandanas.
Mineral Magna Pools: Caters for your wellbeing.
Le Duc de Praslin has three unique magna pools designed to provide natural, superior-quality water with natural ocean minerals in order to provide the ultimate wellbeing-treatment for clients. The prime focus here is on health, beauty, and the environment, with the best and most ecological swimming magna pool filtration system in the world.
In January 2015, the hotel opened a new fitness centre. This facility is located in the main building next to the pool, in a pleasant, inviting location. It provides its guests with state-of-the-art equipment, including an excercise bike, treadmill, resistance machine, crosstrainer, and free weights. Guests can make use of the facility free of charge daily from 06.00 to 20.00 throughout their stay at the hotel. It is a welcome addition geared towards guests’ well-being and fitness while on holiday.

Very nice hotel area with an exceptionally beautiful beach section and a great beach bar! The staff are very attentive and friendly, great service! Dinner in buffet form and breakfast leave nothing to be desired. Conclusion: we would book this hotel again at any time! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super staff; great conditions in the hotel, short distances to the beach! The only limitation was that the system is currently being expanded on one side and you have to expect construction noise during the day - but was tolerable to some extent. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel is a very nice facility. It suits the style well in the region. The family suite was very spacious and nicely located. The whole area with the tropical garden is very tasteful. The nearby beach is long and beautiful. The food - even in the Cafe des Arts - was excellent !!! The breakfast buffet was very good and varied. The staff was friendly and helpful. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great location, very friendly staff. Great hotel, also overpriced in our eyes. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Excellent hotel with top staff. Very beautiful room. We ate our feet in the water at the Arts Cafe, very good food, probably the best place we have eaten in the Seychelles. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
For us nothing to say perfect! Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
beautiful location in the middle of a tropical garden, close to the beach, very friendly staff, very delicious food, spacious, high-quality rooms Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Top accommodation modern and new, nice ambience, small pool, nice breakfast restaurant and only 3 minutes walk to a long and very beautiful beach with the whitest sand ever. Service is great, very clean and the staff is very helpful with all questions and very friendly. Had only booked breakfast, dinner in the surrounding restaurants was always possible and good. Breakfast very good with many fruits. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Somewhat larger hotel, very well maintained, very good dinner. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Restaurant and bar was partially closed Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We liked it very much. A little small pool, but was not that busy. Would go again, we can recommend. Just building a large pool to new complex on the edge of the existing hotel. Great restaurant (Cafe des Arts) and tapas bar on the beach. Good cocktails also at the hotel bar! Great breakfast. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We really liked the hotel. The family suite was very spacious, clean and adequately air conditioned. In the bathroom there was unfortunately no air conditioning / ventilation and open louvre windows, which made sure that in the shower fitting bugs had taken root, the first had to be removed; Then we also knew what insect repellent was for, that we had found in a nightstand. After that, there were no more problems in that respect. The hotel area is really beautiful. In the complex you will find many art objects incorporated with great attention to detail. Free Wi-Fi was available throughout the facility. The service is very friendly. The breakfast buffet was excellent. In the evening there was then alternately a buffet or a multi-course offer. There was always a lot of delicious food. You have to walk to the beach for a few minutes. This is large and nicely located. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great small hotel. Large comfortable room, a true 4 stars. Buffet breakfast and evening meals of high quality. Informing staff Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
very tasteful, only the noise of the associated beach club until 2 o'clock early is difficult to endure (if you are not there and the children woke up early in the morning ....) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful location on the island of prasline, excellent reception and availability of staff. The clean, quiet room full of every imaginable comfort! A very nice place that made you feel really relaxed !!! Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Excellent for the price .... service, food, wellness and the location of course. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice facility, short walk to the beach, staff very hard-working, a 1a bar with super cocktails :) Bicycles can be borrowed for a fee and explore the area. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel but no sea view, staff available. Work despite all troublesome because started at 8am in the morning Beach and little deckchair maturing without mattress Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
It was a dream. We had a beautiful honeymoon suite, with a private garden, one. Outdoor rain dune and a jacuzzi. The hotel is great, the food at the highest level with its own award for the kitchen. The hotel complex is laid out with attention to detail and the pool area invites you to linger and drink a cocktail. We recommend the hotel with a very good conscience further, we were so to speak every wish from the eyes. We will definitely be back. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Excellent hotel, facility, rooms, service and food. It could not be better! The hotel beach is only 100 meters away and is very nice. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Modern hotel and well located. Many amenities in the hotel and nearby. Very friendly staff. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Never again! Please s. Text above Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Comfort, size and quality of rooms: perfect. Garden a little overloaded with "artistic" objects The works had been announced but in the back of park without gene and without limit for the services. The reality was a little different: the work was right behind our rooms and the sound of the excavator and other construction equipment started at 08:00 Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel in a perfect setting and very hot gardens, rooms, bar and restaurant. Nice home, but a little sloppy installation no information on services made available and no notices (TV, safe ....). Nice staff. A lack of communication about the changes of restoration services! Otherwise great stay. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel 2 steps from Cote D'or beach. Our room, a superior, very large and finely furnished, equipped with both a shower and a bath. A large balcony with sunbed and deck chairs that complete the location: the temperatures and humidity, however, do not allow you to enjoy even in the evening. There is a mini-bar and a nespresso machine, strictly for a fee, 50 rupees a waffle, but it is still a great pleasure. We opted for the B & B solution and proved to be a winner: the evenings are almost all themed, or at least without the possibility to choose à la carte. Breakfast excellent and plentiful. Staff very kind and helpful. Bike-rental service available, have good MTB. For hotel guests there are sun loungers on the beach, right in front of the renowned Caffe des Art. Around two the beach handkerchief is completely in the shade. At high tide, the beach is practically non-existent, but just move a few hundred meters to the left to enjoy the beautiful Cote D'or free beach. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
A beautiful hotel with very friendly staff and very good food. The service was exceptionally good. Our room was a dream, unfortunately two sides could not be properly darkened, so it was quite bright in the morning. The prices at the bar and in the chill-out lounge were extremely high. The beach chairs on the beautiful beach were included. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good - But: Dress code with long pants and closed shoes is not even. Did I book a Badehotel or a Tagungshotel? In the outdoor area / restaurant in the evening long pants? Nope - really not. Would you like to eat there, even in the Cafe des Arts on the beach outside dress code? Nobody needs. I say nothing against reasonably decent clothes with T-shirt or half-length trousers, but that's not what a guest needs to go on a beach vacation. Then win the Maldives for me, or even Dubai in the 6 star hotel; there is casual allowed. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This slightly smaller hotel complex is designed with great attention to detail. The rooms are very spacious and country style. The cleanliness, service and friendliness of the staff was nothing to complain about. As we did not receive a room on the 1st floor according to our booking request, we were upgraded to a honeymoon suite. The friendly hotel manager also invited us to a cocktail in the chill-out lounge at the Cafe des Arts on the last evening. The complex is within walking distance to the very beautiful beach Cote d`Or, however, the condition of the way there should be improved. The food in the hotel (half board) was very good and was partly in extensive buffet form or as a four-course menu offered. The only point of criticism were the many pigeons, which served in the morning with us at the breakfast buffet. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A beautiful hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. We had a wonderful spacious superior room with a nice terrace overlooking one of the two pools. The only criticism is that the plant contrary to the description at Seyvillas not "directly on the white sandy beach (Cote d'Or Beach)", but separated by a small street and about 50 meters away. But this beach is really great. But the highlight of the "Le Duc" is the food. Alone the appetizer buffet is really sensational and the rest is part of the top cuisine. We were here for six days very well and felt at home. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Hotel with singular charm Nice and attentive staff Well placed Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Even more beautiful than expected. Great management, very warm staff. Cleanliness, rooms, food and drinks (for the Seychelles very cheap) everything perfect. Fantastic beach with the possibility to take fantastic trips directly from there by boat. Price ok service and friendly SUPER. (Sagittarius) Anytime again. Thanks again to Robert the manager and his team. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Top hotel, we really liked it. Thanks to the Honeymoon Pakage, we have received various other things. Unfortunately, we found that the hotel advised against booking on the beach, but sold us such a tour to Pralins. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
