“The best place in Praslin!”

Our family was there for 5 days during New Year holidays 2012\13. It was so wondefful! Very nice and friendly people! Special thanks to Catia and Maria, a lot of attantion! Very good snorkling, very cosy rooms! Tasty, really tasty food and good prices! We like New Emerald Cove very much!!! And hope to again! Our child Anna liked this place even when it was raining! So beautiful garden and wild nature everywhere. Later we were at La Digue and Siluette - but New Emerald - is the best! :) Marina, Andrey, Anna

A lovely location away from the main island although easily accessible. The rooms are lovely and the staff very helpful, friendly and professional. The breakfasts buffet was good and the evening also quite varied although if you are vegetarian it was a little limiting - the fish kebabs were awesome! We had New Year's Eve at the hotel and enjoyed the buffet but was a bit annoyed to pay corkage for the champagne we bought at the hotel! We did not have the coffee supplies in the room restocked every day which I did expect.
The excursion we took was lovely and the bbq on the beach was super!
The location was ideal and this is a peaceful and relaxing place to spend a lovely time. I wish I was back there!!!

Away from noise, but on same time good connection to other islands. Friendly and professional people around. Our first and really wonderful snorkeling experience :)
100 % worth of re visit

agreat location, isolated, nice and small rooms with great atmosphare.
breakfast and dinner not very intresting....
watter at the hotel is so expensive and you have to buy there, also at dinner you have to buy drinks including water.
we realy enjoy the place, great shnorkeling, very quiet and isolated. jsut bring your own drinks from other place and dont buy at the hotel.

Room Tip: bring your own drinks, very expensive at the hotel!

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at the New Emerald Cove (NEC), a lovely hotel set in the lush tropical garden, on the one of the most stunning, white sand beach of Praslin Island. Hotel can only be accessed by boat from the Baie St. Anne jetty (10 minutes complimentary ride) so the beach with crystal clear turquoise water is very quiet and private, giving you gorgeous feeling that this gem is only yours. Hotel is offering many activities: by walking or canoeing you can explore neighboring beaches with the colorful contrast between the sea and huge granite rocks, snorkeling on the coral barrier just in the front, or challenge yourself in the forest trekking with Jeffry. The location of hotel also makes it a great place to experience all that Seychelles islands have to offer. Hotel is daily organizing full of half-day excursions (similar price like other tour operators) to other islands that includes delicious BBQ lunch made on spot just for us. If you have any doubt where to go and what to sightsee, there is always giving help of Catia and Gina which will give you the best advice and made perfect arrangements for you (nothing is too much trouble for these very friendly and cheerful people). In general, the staff is very gentle and polite.
Tip: Don’t use any travel agency to arrange your holiday; contacting directly this lovely hotel you’ll make an easy booking and save money. This hotel definitely offers great value for money.
Accommodation: Standard rooms are tastefully decorated with wooden furniture and floor and have a big wooden deck veranda either over-looking the beautiful garden or sea. Although the standard room is not extra luxurious, it is of reasonable size, clean, and provided with everything we actually needed (very comfortable bed and pillows, sufficient wardrobe space, safe box, air-conditioning, mini fridge). The bathroom is provided with the shower, toiletries, hairdryer, bathrobe (Frette) and thick fluffy towels that are changed every day (beach/pool towels provided as well). The room has floor-to-ceiling wooden window shutters (persiane) instead of traditional glass but there was no insects and morning light in the room. Coming from the place in the desert, we had a pleasure of hearing sounds of the sea waves and occasional rain. We were also particularly happy of not having TV and internet available in the room (only in communal areas) – perfect to escape from the hectic whole day’s life and have total relaxation.
Food: Both, breakfast and dinner buffet food was very good, with great quality, variety and taste. We loved the crunchy, hot croissants and pastries which along with Lavazza espresso coffee was an absolute pleasure every morning (not often could be found even in 5* hotels). As part of dinner buffet, don’t miss mouth-watering BBQ (meat and fish option always available) and wide selection of cheese. For tea lovers, there is every day complimentary “afternoon tea” including homemade cookies.
No wonder that spending holiday in NEC, we truly feel Creole spirit and understood a meaning of the slogan “Not just another place, another world” found in the in-flight magazine of Air Seychelles. Thanks a lot for a memorable stay and we will definitively return. Wish we were still there!

got back two weeks ago from this stunning place. over all this hotel is a very good 4 stars hotel, with the service of a 5 stars hotels.
the location is great. very privet beach with a good snorkling sites, nature surrounds you where ever you go. the short boat trips, which was free, was just a small discomforte, and also part of the fun experiens of this special place.
Rooms are all wooden furnished, comfuratable and clean. we had a sea side view, that was beautiful, but all rooms are very close to the beach.
Took two tours, which was great. I recommand to travel to La-Digue, it's 20 minuts trip by boat, and you can be there all day, rent a bike, and tour the island lovely beaches, and sites.
the staff is very wellcoming and efficient, and over all people of Prasline and La-digue was nice, and helpful, from the minut we landed in Prasline airport till the we had to leave.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel's private jetty, we were welcomed by the very friendly staff to this beautiful and tranquil resort. Our beach facing, luxury room could not have been better. If your idea of a holiday is total relaxation - either sitting by the stunning beach or by the pool, this is a perfect place to be. The coral reef which is protected from the main sea is an amazing place to snorkel (equally as good, or better than Thailand). You can literally step out of your room, onto the beach and a short swim takes you to the calm and safe reef. We found the food was well presented, tasty and varied, catering to European tastes as well as local cuisine. Our only regret is that we only stayed for four nights. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel., thank you for a great holiday that we had.
