The Seychelles archipelago in the Indian Ocean has for many decades been attracting more and more tourists in search of a five star vacation, lying on a superb fine sandy beach. With more than 100 islands in the archipelago, the choice is unlimited. Among the many little corners of paradise, one island tends to stands out. It’s called Praslin and is located 45 kilometers north of Mahé, the archipelago’s largest island. Praslin is a former pirates’ refuge where they used to hide their treasure. Wild and well preserved, the island possesses magnificent landscapes, exceptional flora and fauna and kilometers of superb beaches. It’s highly recommended that tourists who come here visit the famous Mai Valley nature reserve which is undoubtedly the most beautiful site on the island and which since 1983, has been declared a UNESCO world heritage. We discover palm trees known as “Coco de mer”, which are symbols of the Seychelles as well as a variety of endemic species of palms and magnificent tropical birds like the black parrot, which is an endangered species at present. The reserve is the main reason a number of hotels have opened on the island, the most famous of which is the Lémuria.
The famous Constance Lémuria Resort is on the island of Praslin. It’s the only five-star hotel on the island, and its particularly elegant traditional architecture blends in perfectly with the magnificent natural décor.
Accommodations include 96 rooms and 9 luxury villas including the immense Presidential Villa, perched on the southern tip of the Kerlan cove. All the room decorations are elegant and modern using primarily natural and luxurious products such as wood, pink granite and marble to make each guest feel he or she is privileged. The suites have large beds, spacious bathrooms, and the villas offer a second bedroom, a living room, a swimming pool and a pavilion reserved for wellness.
The Presidential Villa, a veritable hotel within a hotel, has three suites, a Jacuzzi on the terrace, an office, a living room a dining room and three swimming pools! In addition, to respond to the needs of the guests and for an extraordinary stress free vacation, there’s a butler for each villa who watches over and attends to the slightest detail.
The Lémuria is also well known for its magnificent golf course designed by Rodney Wright and Marc Antoine Farry. Running along the Kerlan cove and bordered by tropical trees, it possesses fantastic landscapes which have earned it the nickname of “the golf course of the gods.”
Other jewels of the hotel are its Shisheido Spa, its waterfall swimming pool, unique in the world, and its three superb beaches equipped with deck chairs and parasols for peaceful relaxation. Finally, in each of the Lémuria’s three restaurants, the most talented and innovative Chefs create a respectively different atmosphere with refined dishes with original touches of local cuisine.
In order to assure the protection of the biodiversity and especially of the sea turtles that come each year to lay their eggs on these beaches, the Lémuria has a turtle manager who is in charge of watching over the well-being of these animals. He surveys the beaches and informs hotel guests about the behavior to adopt in order not to bother them. A special lighting system around the hotel has been set up so as not to perturb the turtles who generally lay their eggs at night.
