Description:

The Villa Bananier, run by Seychellois local Anne and her husband, lies in a prime location, near to the coastal village Cote d'Or, the luxurious Le Duc hotel, and one of Praslin's best beaches, Anse Volbert. A small path leads from the hotel to the beach and its small offshore islets. The slope of the sand into the water is gentle, and the sand itself is pristine and white, making the beach a perfect prospect for swimming all year-round. This contrasts with some of Praslin's other beaches, which suffer from seaweed at various times throughout the year.

However, the beach is far from the location's only advantage. The nearby Cote d'Or village offers some excellent small beach restaurants, including the Creole 'Art' Café, complete with its uniquely attractive interior. This gives guests of the Villa Bananier maximum flexibility with their meal options. If you don't feel like eating at the hotel, you have other options right on your doorstep. However, if you do decide to enjoy the hotel's food, prepared by the landlady and her team, then you can book it on-site.

All in all, the Villa Bananier is a welcoming, pleasantly-run establishment, and the owners are commited to making their guests feel at home with little touches such as the safe at reception and the overnight laundry service. Therefore, the hotel receives our genuine recommendation!

Activities and specials:

  • Serene yet lively location. There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance, inviting guests to take an evening stroll.
  • The owner of the villa is friends with the head of Pascal Opal Car Rentals, so guests can easily arrange a rental car for around €40/day, delivered straight to the hotel.
  • Besides the nearby shops and restaurants, you can also find a number of third-party tour operators offering boat trips to some of the Seychelles' other islands.
  • St. Pierre island, a real Robinson Crusoe affair, is only 5 minutes away by boat, and definitely worth a visit!
  • The owner of the villa offers a marvellous boat tour to the islands of Curieuse and St. Pierre.

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.

★★★★☆ 05.02.2018

Everything we needed was present. We had 4 great days on Praslin.

★★★☆☆ 15.07.2019

Unfortunately, when we arrived in our room, the flushing of the toilet did not work properly. Then we got without complications a new (larger) room without extra charge. The staff were very friendly, but made only the bare minimum. The breakfast was very carelessly: soluble coffee (a filter machine would have been in the kitchen), 2 slices of toast per person, eggs on demand (when my friend and I both asked for two eggs it was said per person only 1 egg). The owner of the accommodation offered us a Creole dinner for 25 € per person, which we were very disappointed. She set the bowls and plates at the table and let us know that it was ready. Then she disappeared without a word and left us alone. For food there was a fish for both of us, some coleslaw and some must. For "dessert" there was ice from the cup. Everything is not a problem and tasted it, but for 25 € we expected more! The rooms were clean and the air conditioning worked well. The sheets and pillows were not as clean as you would like.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate

★★★★★ 12.06.2019

We felt very warm welcome and were well looked after. Car rental, boat tour.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
