The Villas de Mer are located on the south coast of Praslin, next to the island's longest beach, Grand Anse. This stunning beach is exceptionally soft, and slopes gently into the waters of the Indian Ocean. Restaurants and shopping facilities can also be found nearby, contributing to the hotel's top location.
2 × Junior Suite (up to 4 people)
Activities and specials:
- The hotel offers a free shuttle service to Anse Lazio and Cote d'Or on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, all year-round.
- Boat trips to the neighbouring islands can be arranged by the hotel upon request.
- The sea-angling trip bookable on-site is highly recommended.
- It is also possible to organise scuba diving and snorkelling trips to places such as the mini island of St. Pierre.
- Thanks to its great location on Praslin, most of the island's beaches are easily-accessible by rental car.
- Villas de Mer puts importance on sustainability: With solar panels installed on the roof of the building, solar energy is used for the supply of electricity of the accommodation.
The Villas de Mer lie next to Praslin's stunning Grand Anse, on the south-west coast of the island, ensuring a fantastic view for guests of the beach, the ocean, and Cousin and Cousine island. The recently-refurbished accommodation offers a restaurant with dining area beside the sea, large pool, and 10 suites, spread across 3 buildings. The estate's main building has also been refurbished, but still maintains its traditional plantation style.
Each suite contains a spacious, air-conditioned double bedroom. Additionally, there is a comfortable seating area, a private veranda with ground-level exit, and a large bathroom with shower and hair dryer. Also present in every suite are ceiling fans (in addition to the air-conditioning), tea and coffee-making facilities, a mini bar, a safe, and modern furnishings. All of the rooms were refurbished in 2011 using solid wood furniture from Bali, so are in great condition.
Near the resort's main building, guests can find a beach restaurant that offers exquisite Creole and international cuisine. It's things like this that earn this small hotel our special recommendation; the attention to detail and level of care afforded by the owner and the staff is excellent.

The trade winds between June and October will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin.

Small hotel with very nice staff. Had a problem with A / C, they were very responsive. Small gifts upon arrival. To recommend. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Wonderful! In particular, the small restaurant diiiiirekt on (almost on) the beach made us happy at breakfast and in the evening. Friendly Peronal; all good! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful structure and excellent cuisine (traditional and very well revisited). Very interesting is the possibility to use the free bus service to move to other beaches on the island Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
All in all a reasonable accommodation. The drain from the shower was unfortunately clogged. Room normally equipped. If you are looking for luxury is wrong here. Breakfast very well arranged. Little choice, but OK. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
At Villas de Mer everything is very family. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. From arrival to check-out you feel in good hands. The rooms are clean, the hotel restaurant was good, the house beach was not crowded, only the drinks prices could be a bit lower. The location is not right in the center but by the bus that stops right outside the door you can easily reach the entire island. The whole package fits - gladly again. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice hotel area with pool and sea view. Spacious and clean rooms. Friendly staff at the reception and breakfast buffet. Disappointing was the management's reaction to a theft announcement. It was reacted with defense posture; no great effort to solve the theft. Police of Praslin was not informed by the hotel. It is surprising that despite alleged security at night could be broken into the room. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
an excellent location by the sea, excellent hospitality and availability to guests. We were able to visit Georgette bends thanks to the decisive collaboration of the girl at the reception. Excellent position to visit the island. The structure then runs a restaurant that I recommend, excellent value quality price Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
very welcome we were upgraded to master bedroom, spacious room clean friendly staff Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Very clean, cozy accommodation; great location right on the sea. The breakfast was good, especially the ice cream, but otherwise not very varied, five days but no problem. The dinner was in the middle to higher price level. On the beach was unfortunately a lot of seaweed, but it was regularly removed from the hotel staff. At the most disturbing were on the spot at most the stray dogs, who have occasionally pursued one and begged for food. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Excellent value for money. Strengths: room size, cleanliness. Good breakfast The sea view and also the sea point is beautiful (not for the bathroom but for walks). The restaurant, a bit expensive, has interesting and tasty dishes. Car recommended as the buses finish at around 6:30 pm. There are NO takeaways to go to within 10 minutes on foot Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful resort overlooking the sea with swimming pool and restaurant on the sea ... divided into a dozen Bungalows. Spacious rooms furnished with taste and bright colors. Great breakfast by the sea. The structure does not provide guests with adequate security as it is accessible from several easily passable streets and there is no secure surveillance ... During our stay we immediately suffered the intrusion of a thief while we slept who stole cash from us. and Credit / Debit cards .... scared we ran to the only guard who slept quietly in front of the reception ..... I don't think we need to add other considerations. !!!! I save you all the rest of the story. Meditate! Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
excellent Guest house of a dozen rooms, on the beach. Restaurant on the beach. It's wonderfull. the welcome is quite correct and waiters at the restaurant, a rare kindness. Rooms are clean and spacious, air conditioning is essential. the half board requires a choice of 2 entrees and dishes, we would have preferred a buffet with more fruit for example. drinks and more, it's pretty painful. the Villa de Mer is a value for money a bit high in my opinion but the environment is certainly better than other guest house nearby. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Staff unfortunately very rude, little service-oriented, very small breakfast. Room ok. Location right on the beach, but compared to other beaches on the island the beach is not very nice (especially by seagrass alluvial). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Good location, staff very friendly. Beds but extremely hard, loud fridge in the room, little charging options for mobile / camera. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The small hotel Villas de Mer is barely 2 minutes from the small airport and if you are by the pool you can see the small airplanes rise in the sky and hear what did not bother us! It was everything as in the hotel description, cleanliness, service and friendliness were great. The restaurant has good food at reasonable prices. It should be noted, however, that as already known in our time the beach is full of seaweed, and you can not swim here, it was also very windy. Nevertheless, we felt very well! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation was generous. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The rooms and the grounds were nice and clean. Here there were sometimes times less friendly staff at the front desk. Here you should be better pointed to the seagrass in this period, resp. the extent of seagrass. Especially if you go the first time, you have no idea. That is, they have informed me very well that there could be seagrass, but never to that extent! We did not imagine that so blatantly. The beach was completely full, no one bathed and it has been uncannily strong all the time. The hotel restaurant on the beach had to be screened with a tarp. That somehow took the charm of the dinner at a standstill. As the locals have told us, it is very windy and full of seagrass on this side of the island from April to November, and then on the other side from November to April. Since I would have been very grateful if you had said clearly that it is at this time of year rather unfavorable on this side of the island. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious. The food was delicious. Lack a little variety in the morning. The pool is superb however, the product that uses the hotel for the PH of the water, stained all our clothes. It smelled like rust. My white swimsuit has turned yellow. The staff of the restoration part is dynamic however those of the reception miss a lot. They look a little lost. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Friendly, clean, punctual. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
excellent structure overlooking the sea and followed very well by the staff ... we had a great time, really good rating !! Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
A magnificent villa hotel with the beach facing this one only dream. we had half board and we were delighted everything was perfect a decent breakfast and varied evening meals and ecxellents. The staff was attentive to our needs and very discreet at the same time. When to the perfect Creole team and very helpful and good advice. We recommend this villa. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Petie hotel typically Seychellois, well located, excellent comfort and propety, correct catering, just a little effort for breakfast. Good home, efficient staff. Creole buffet party friendly and quality. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The sister hotel of L`Habitation is also a very cozy and family run small hotel. Since the Villas de Mer was renovated only last year, it is much more modern than the sister hotel. The room is very neat and functional. The cleaning service is very good. From the restaurant you have an open sea view, unfortunately on the beach was very much seaweed. Otherwise you can take long walks along the beach directly from the hotel. The continental breakfast is good. In the evening we always expected a 3-course menu with excellent food. The service in the restaurant is very good and friendly. The service at the front desk was always good, friendly and helpful. The hotel offers a free bus shuttle to Anse Lazio. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Here we spent one night, the staff was very friendly, the hotel was not really busy with just 5 guests. The beach was unfortunately very full of seaweed we found a great pity because you did not want to go into the water. We think you could expect the seaweed to be something that you could at least walk. The room was really great and nice big and above all clean. The dinner and breakfast in the restaurant was really delicious. Since the hotel is almost directly at the airport, it is very noisy and you will be woken up more often by the planes at night.
