Acajou Hotel, Seychelles

Our Opinion
A small, family run resort set in the heart of the most beautiful tropical grounds overlooking Anse Volbert on the northern coast of Praslin. Clients’ get an instant peace and karma when they arrive. Accommodation is designed to give clients as much privacy as possible. Ideal for couples but not suitable for children under 12.
Beach here is spectacular.
Acajou is situated on the romantic island of Praslin, an island of rare palms where elusive Black Parrots live among the fonds of the wondrous Coco-der-Mer in a valley once described by General Gordon of Khartoum as the site of the original Garden of Eden. Praslin is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Acajou is on the Cote d’Or beach, which stretches along the island’s northern coast and ranks among the favourites with visitors to the Seychelles.


It compromises 28 tastefully decorated rooms (24 standards and 4 superior) spread out amidst casurina and takamaka trees by the water’s edge, each room with a balcony facing the sea. The rooms are located in two blocks, either on ground or first floor.


Guest facilities include a bar, restaurant, cocktail lounge, swimming pool equipped with deck chairs and sun umbrellas and a beach bar restaurant; all offering charming and friendly Seychellois service. The beach is also equipped with beach beds and sun umbrellas and beach towels are available from the hotel reception.


The main restaurant serves a full American breakfast from 07h30 to 10h00. Dinner consists of either a buffet or table d’hote of both creole and international origin and is served from 19h30 to 21h30. The beach bar is situated next to the beach. Here guests can sample a variety of light snacks from 12h30 to 16h00 whilst listening to the gentle sound of the waves. In the lounge bar, let the barmen tempt you with a tropical cocktail or a long cool drink whilst you overlook the lush garden.


Strolling along the beach to the nearby Paradise Sun Hotel will provide a more upbeat atmosphere, including dancing and listening to bands and local singers. During the day the beautiful Côte d’Or beach has a wide selection of water sports and boat excursions to neighbouring islands for snorkelling and barbecue lunches.


Within a short walking distance guests will find a sophisticated casino. Five minutes away by car is the jetty where you can catch the ferry to neighbouring La Digue. Arrangements can be made by the hotel for excursions, car rental and diving. Babysitting, laundry, currency exchange and bicycle hire are other services offered.
