Indian Ocean Lodge Hotel

Praslin

Days 1 - 3: Praslin

Indian Ocean Lodge Hotel Location Map

The Indian Ocean Lodge is an affordable small hotel establishment situated right along the beach of Grand Anse, just on the outskirts of the tiny village by the same name. Grand Anse is one of the longest beaches on the island, with shallow flats that extend far out to the reef and water barely lapping along the shore.

From the cuisine, to the interior decor, to the warm faces greeting you at each turn, everything about the hotel is there to provide you with a truly authentic Seychelles experience. It is a relaxing haven to unwind, a convenient location from which to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of these magical islands, and then enjoy a peaceful night's sleep at the end of the day.

The Blue Marlin Restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and anything in between. The pool side bar provides ice-cold beverages througout the day, and theres no better place to sip a cocktail as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean.

The 32 guest rooms are nestled along the beach across 8 two-storey structures of traditional Creole architecture, and surrounded by tropical gardens. The interiors have been designed to uniquely identify with Praslin in every way, with pastel and earth tones, along with fixtures and made out of traditional materials like palm leaves and coconut husks and shells. The white-washed furniture, built by local carpenters, lends a soothing, rustic finish to the room. 

All of the rooms have been designed to easily convert into ideal accommodation for families - the seating area can be converted into a sleeping area for children. Some rooms are interconnecting, offering additional space for families with older children.

Le Surmer

La Digue

Days 4 - 6: La Digue

Le Surmer Location Map

The beauty of the Seychelles is that each and every island is so diverse. If you’re looking for a laid-back break from reality, you cannot do better than La Digue - the 4th largest island in Seychelles but one of the most unspoilt. It has a unique charm, stunning scenery, and is island lifestyle at its best.

Anse Source d’Argent is amongst the most photographed beaches in the world. Here, you’ll find pale pink granite boulders studded across silken powdery sands, with a clear ocean ahead of you and the untamed jungle behind. Anse Patates, the island's northern most point, is superb for snorkelling.

The locals are friendly, the main mode of transport is bicycle or ox cart but the island is small enough to get around on foot. The Creole cuisine is a mouth-watering fusion of Indian, African and European flavours.

It only takes 15 minutes to cross to La Digue from Praslin, but it will feel as though you’ve entered an entirely different world.

Just a 15 minute walk from the La Passe Jetty, Le Surmer Chalets ovelooks the beach at Anse Reunion. Accommodation consists of one and 2 bedroomed self-catering chalets. Each of the 8 chalets has a living room with an open plan kitchen, an en-suite bathroom and a terrace/private veranda. 

Small shops, a bigger supermarket and a few restaurants are close-by and can be reached by foot. The property itself also has a restaurant, which serves Creole cuisine.

The other beaches on the island can be reached by bike (bike hire is available from Recepton at an additional cost) in just a few minutes.
