Iles Des Palmes is an eco resort, that offers guests excellent value for money and allows them to explore the beauty of Praslin and the surrounding islands. This is the magic of Seychelles. Visits to Vallee De Mai (UNESCO World Heritage Site), visits to Sister Island and Cousin Island, snorkelling safari on to Anse Boudin or St. Pierre and Ile Cocos. Of course, many swims at Anse Lazio become unforgettable, the most beautiful beach in the World, all just minutes from Iles Des Palmes.
No other establishment has taken so much care, to preserve its natural assets, while incorporating the comforts man needs for a relaxing holiday.
Maid service is daily, and includes sheet towel, sanitary amenity service. Fruit service is available for free on a seasonal basis.
The old coconut plantation stretching for 15 acres is in fact part of a larger 175 acre estate. The one hundred year old calorifer has been converted to an art gallery to allow Seychellois artist, a commercial avenue to express themselves.
The bungalows have all been built out of farmed timber. No old growth tree have been cut to build Iles Des Palmes. The mountain forest in the back ground is preserved as it has been for a thousand years except for one road access that gets you to the other side to Anse La Blague.
While you rest on the veranda, the massive red granite mountains in the back drop, found only on this side of Praslin, offer you hours of amazement over the power and wonder of nature.
The bungalows are positioned directly on the beach, allowing guests to interact with nature from the veranda. Sharks and rays swim by. Fish feed before you. Birds visit and become friends. Flying fox circle around you over head each evening feeding on fruits we, man left behind for the day. The ghost crabs, or even the land crabs will be sure to pay you a visit at night.
The bungalows are dotted along the beachfront. Accommodation is divided into 2 areas: The Colonial Quarters and The Pirates Cove. The latter of the establishment is named so because the well-known pirate Vasseur "La Buse" is said to have hidden a bounty nearby. Some fascinating markings on the rocks bears witness to that belief.
Sea wall was built by slaves in an amazing stretch of human effort that measures almost 1000 meters and remains intact today, except for a portion that eroded in front of the family bungalows: Colonial Quarters which is mainly for families with children and comprises 2 and 3 bedroom beachfront bungalows. Baby cot and high chair are free of charge. In the Pirates Cove, is ideal for couples,nature lovers and honeymooners and normally does not take children.
