From the moment you step into the property you are welcomed with a friendly smile, our Hosts Patrick and Miette provided the most friendly and comfy accommodation in this corner of paradise on Praslin. The rooms are well fitted out, all you need to self cater, but why do that when you have an excellent restaurant at your doorstep. The...

The fish ceviche to start with was great, the main fish dishes were average. It was a bit slow and service was slow, but it was a charming location on the beach. Especially on this quieter side of the island this is a good option.

We stayed at the Islander for four nights during our Island Hopping tour at the Seychelles in January 2016. The apartments are in a beautiful location, with a nice private beach and close to the magnificent Anse Lazio, that can be reached with a beautiful 45 minutes hike. The apartments are wide and nice from the outside, with nice garden....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Islander Guest House is a small family-run hotel. We are located on a property of more than 4,000sq metres of flat land at Anse Kerlan Beach, in the north-west coast of Praslin, one of the world's most beautiful tropical islands. The Islander Hotel offers comfortable relaxation in a holiday home of your choice, in self-contained Creole style bungalows, ranging from Standard to Family Villa. All accommodations stand proudly amongst well-tended lush gardens, filled with a riot of flowering shrubs. The Islander Hotel has its own private parking. A tortoise-pen is found close to the parking area and guests can feed them from the nearby grasses or leaves. The reception offers assistance for all your holiday requirements, such as excursions, fishing trip, diving, car rental, taxis, and more. The beach is a few steps away, providing the ultimate enjoyment of sun, sea and sand practically on your doorstep, and capping most every day with glorious sunsets. There you can find a newly built gazebo in the Balinese style, with beach beds, chairs and tables, shower, and other amenities. ... more   less
