Le Chateau Hotel Praslin - aerial view
The Chateau, as the name suggests, "Castle of Leaves," and its cottages have thatched roofs and palm leaves are used extensively in construction and decoration. It sits on top of a hill with a spectacular vista over the exquisite, peaceful, turquoise ocean a hundred metres down below.
Chateau de Feuilles is one of the best small hotels in Seychelles. It is in many ways the best hotel on Praslin. This is not the typical Seychelles beachside hotel. But then, why is it so special? Why do people talk about it so much? All is revealed...
The Chateau de Feuilles Praslin is a small luxury hotel of only 9 rooms and suites. It is also a member of the prestigious worldwide hotels, "Relais & Chateaux" and you can readily see why it has attained such an acclaimed position....
You'll be charmed at this hotel. Chateau de Feuilles Hotel Praslin is in an excellent location. It has a stunning 180° panoramic view over the ocean and a cosy, relaxing atmosphere. This is a delightful little place and you will be treated like royalty here.
It is a top Seychelles luxury hotel in the 4-star category. But it is unlike the usual hotels in Seychelles. You will be mesmerized by the spectacular view and the feeling of serenity up here. Yes it's close to the sea but still high up above the ocean.
Nothing here has been left to chance. Your needs are well anticipated. You even have the use of a free car to explore the fabulous "Island of Palms". After all the real reason you come to Praslin is to see and discover the various famous sites on the island, right?

Go discover Anse Lazio, Anse Georgette and the Vallee de Mai. Praslin is an incredible place and staying at Le Chateau makes it an unforgettable holiday in Seychelles. It adds to the Praslin magic.
The property has its own private heliport allowing landing in the immediate neighbourhood of the hotel if you wish to transfer from Mahe by private helicopter charter. Or you may simply want to hop to other islands direct from Le Chateau. Then let the hotel arrange it all for you.
The Chateau has a nice swimming pool, a superb Jacuzzi on the hilltop, and a beautiful tropical garden. It is not a typical hotel in that it is small, but small is beautiful... And in this case it's what makes it so nice...
Here you have the feeling of staying in a private home... If you're looking for a great location with absolute privacy, this is the place! A grand address to keep confidential: not a hotel, but a sort of private Eden for the lucky few.
No detail has been overlooked. Besides the exquisite views of the ocean and the hotel grounds, the food is very good with fine service and a fairly long wine list. The restaurant specializes in seafood and Creole cuisine. So if you like fish, especially tropical fish, you'll be right in your element here.
Ideal for a romantic getaway, you'll feel like a few days in heaven. And don't miss the free weekend excursion at Grande Soeur Island where you get to enjoy a private island and a barbecue there.

It's all very much a part of the experience of staying at Le Chateau de Feuilles. You can go snorkelling or just go discover the island's primitive interior and its beaches. It's a unique adventure and not to be missed.
The rooms at the Chateau de Feuilles are not Four-Seasons luxurious, but nice, comfortable, ensuite, well decorated and exotic with Plasma TV and Satellite channels, DVD player, free Wi-Fi Internet access and a Mac computer, so you can keep up with the world when you're not too busy living the dream.
All the rooms have incredible, breath-taking views. Some have two terraces or balconies from where you can have vistas on the two different bays - "Anse Consolation" and "Anse Marie Louise".
Staying at the Chateau is an absolute magical experience for most, with its beautiful garden - a real Eden with amazing views from just about everywhere on the property!
Oh! Did I say that this is not a beach hotel? The sea is right there below you but it would still take at least 5 minutes to walk to the beach at Anse Marie Louise, which is secluded but not a particularly great beach. But then again, there aren't that many great beaches on the island.
But your complimentary car will take you to the great beaches - the best beaches of Praslin, like Cote d'Or in 15 minutes, Anse Lazio in 25 minutes and Anse Georgette in less than 30 minutes. So, there you have it all.
The UNESCO world heritage site, the Vallee de Mai prehistoric palm forest is some 15 minutes away, while 5 minutes will get you to the ferry jetty and the Praslin airport is 25 minutes drive. Use that free car...
Chateau de Feuilles Seychelles - Top floor suite with spectacular views from balconies
The Chateau de Feuilles Praslin has a fabulous, unique, spill-over Jacuzzi on the hilltop with a 360° view on paradise - enjoy it together with the stunning vista by day and come back for more under the stars or by moonlight if you like something really out of this world...
Now do you like a nice cup of coffee? If yes, then you would like to know that they have a Nespresso coffee machine in all the rooms with 16 "Grands Crus" blends to choose from. Enjoy it.
Oh! I almost forgot: and all that comes with a nice price tag too. But if money is no object then you'll be getting one of the best values in Seychelles, where everything can be really expensive anyway.
Also important to note is that there is, at the Chateau, a minimum stay policy of 3 nights, so do plan accordingly. What a wonderful place you'll find here, a beautiful and romantic setting for the perfect memorable Seychelles holiday.
Go enjoy Seychelles Chateau de Feuilles Hotel Praslin.
