Located at Anse Takamaka, on the beautiful island of Praslin, this small Seychelles hotel sits amongst the peaceful, lush vegetation across from the beach and a coastline scattered with granite formations and surrounded by coral reefs set along a vast coconut and cinnamon plantation surrounded by a fresh water/salt water eco system that is full of bird and sea life.
Praslin Island is the second largest Seychelles island 30 km from the main island Mahé. On arrival at the Seychelles International Airport, guests can either travel fast catamaran or by air to Praslin Island.
The property was an old plantation house and slave post. The wall alongside the 500M beach was built by slaves more than 200 years ago to prevent erosion of the cost line in that part of the island. The coconut kiln still standing on the site now used as library and office space is an example of how the place have been preserved.
The self-catering family-run establishment has 20 cosy beach bungalows that stand in a large and peaceful garden just meters from the long and white sandy beach. The detached beach bungalows are typically designed in a Creole manner and fully equipped with all the necessary facilities and amenities for a pleasant stay. All units have a kitchenette with cooking facilities.
Daily fish harvest is done from fish traps laid over night, if you wish to participate in the event you have to ask since it depends on the tide movement and may not happen at the same time every day.
If you are a keen hiker you can walk the trail to anse possession and back. There are lots of endemic plants, insect and animals on the way.
