- L'Archipel is located on the north east side of Praslin at the end of the beautiful famous Côte d'Or bay, in a colourful tropical garden
- Only 30 rooms and suites which are all spacious, with a sea view, air conditioning and a terrace
- There are two restaurants and a beach bar to discover the local creole cuisine and the fabulous freshly caught seafood

- A perfect hotel choice for guests looking to have a relaxed Seychellois experience and to discover Praslin and the surrounding islands
Start your day with a leisurely breakfast on your own terrace taking in the panoramic view over the bay.
Such satisfaction is to a great extent down to the time you (Charlotte Wells) and your colleagues took in recommending this resort... It goes without saying that we shall definitely be in touch again and hope very much to make a return visit to the Four Seasons in the Maldives...

The dining options at the hotel offer stunning views as well as fantastic cuisine. The head chef, taught his trade by a famous French chef, has used his experience and knowledge to accent the food with iconic creole flavours. There is also an authentic creole menu once a week.
L'Archipel is an excellent base, hire a bicycle or car and discover the rest of the island, visit the prehistoric vegetation of 'Vallée de Mai' National Park where you shall discover The Coco de Mer, with its distinctive and unusually shaped nut and La Digue is 30 minute boat ride away. Discover this island at your own pace with either an ox-cart or a bicycle a great way to spend a day as well as being the best opportunity to see the Giant Tortoise.

Best time to travel
March - November
The islands of the Seychelles enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate, generally governed by two opposing trade winds. The south-easterly trades blow from May to September bringing drier and windier conditions ideal for sailing. From October to March the gentler north-west trades provide calmer seas but a higher chance of refreshing showers. Scuba divers will find April, May, October and November have the warmest seas and visibility is often 30 metres plus
