Our hotel is a Seychelles gem, embraced in the warmth of the Indian Ocean. The pristine white coral sands of the Cote d’Or Beach at our front door will tempt you to bare your feet. The aquamarine waters that stretch towards an endless horizon will float your troubles away. Our lush lawns and tropical gardens will delight your eye with their beauty. Here there is more than sand, sea and sunshine. There is also the warmth of the Seychelles smile – making it a paradise you will never want to leave.

LOCATION

LET YOURSELF GO

Paradise Sun is discretely tucked away on the North Eastern side of Praslin Island, which is the second largest island of the unspoiled Seychelles archipelago. The hotel nestles in the far corner of 3km of vast white sandy beach, under the protective presence of an outcrop of enormous granite boulders – making it private and secluded. Here, on Praslin Island, where temperatures average around 28°C, you will find some of the finest beaches not only in the Seychelles, but in the world – and you will also discover the Vallée de Mai which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and according to legend, the original Garden of Eden.

Praslin Airport is only 12km

Baie St Anne Jetty is only 6km
