Le Duc de Praslin Seychelles Hotel Review

( The full version of this article by Martin Gegenfurtner, originally appeared on )

Greeted by a welcome drink and some flowers, we felt very welcome and comfortable from the very first moment we entered the open-air reception at Le Duc de Praslin. The open architecture and the lush greenery and plants in the outdoor areas immediately gave us a sense of paradise. It clearly makes you feel and experience the Creole spirit of this hotel, which is run solely by Seychellois staff.
