Ocean Jewels Resort
Ranked #1 of 3 Amitie B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 March 2014

A great place to be, perfectly located to the airport, really friendly staff and managers made our stay really pleasant. The houses are perfectly located by the beach, and very spacious. The beach itself is nice and the sunsets are gorgeous, for bathing it´s not a thrill, but taking the local bus to explore Anse Georgette (Brenda gave the guards at Constance Lemuria a call ahead) and Anse Lazio nearby is the best on Praslin. Watch out for the mosquitos during the evenings, which caused one of the few downsides with Ocean Jewels Resort; while we had to close the doors to keep the mosquitos away, it really got hot on the ground floor, since there is no AC there, only in the bedrooms. A small investment with mosquitonets in front of the doors should solve that small little problem.

Room Tip: We choosed a beachfront house, further away from the street, we didn´t regret that.

The hotel was clean, big, with a great bbq and what it is more important: close to en empty beach. That beautiful beach is not crowed at all; you can walk alone for kilometers except for one or two fishermen.

By the way, Paul and the rest of the team were so nice and helped us with everything we needed.

Of course I reccomend this hotel.

We spent 6 days at Ocean Jewels Resort. We felt almost like at home. Paul is very warm-hearted and ready to help. We asked him for a car hiring service in the afternoon and the car was ready to use in the evening. We chose a villa for us two although an apartment is big enough as well. Very clean and comfortable. From our villa we could see the ocean. We heard that all these four houses were originally built as home not as guest houses, which explains the comfort Ocean Jewels offers. The best thing for me is the beach, only 20 meters away, though might not be the most beautiful one. The sand is so fine that when it is dry you can blow it off your hand like white flour. I swam almost every morning and evening while enjoying the sunrise and sunset. By the way, at the time of our stay we could see great sunset.

Room Tip: For daily shopping, there are two small stores very close to the resort. Only they don't have ma...

We stayed here with our 2 kids (1 and 4 years) for 1 week in September 2013 and we really loved it. The (family) villa was great, wow what a space and a great ocean view from the terrace and balcony. We really enjoyed the great hospitality of Paul and Brenda and both their kids. Restaurants and supermarkets can easliy be reached by foot although you need a car or a bus to see the beautiful beaches (anse Lazio, anse Georgette). For a dive in the pool we visited the "neighbours". This was the best accomodation we stayed in during our 3 weeks Seychelles trip. Dear Paul and Brenda we are really looking forward to get back to this great place in the near future. Petra, Paul and kids.

If You like: comfort, space, freedom, nice and friendly people - this place is for You!
We were there one week in sept. 2013, our appartament was well prepared, very clean, with nice (and cool) "special drink" for the best welcome in the world. Kitchen fully equiped, You can feel free to make your own meals and eat them on a giant terrasse.
Localisation: perfect, near Grand Anse village center, maybe not even 50 meters from GRAND ANSE beach (by the well treated garden). 100-200 and meters You'll find a nice pizzeria, small shops and a bus stop. No problem with WI-FI (Isurf is the best way). Paul & Brenda (the hosts) were very friendly, they helped us many times, always with a honest smile! Very importand, They are from The Seychelles, so They know all the best places to visit. On Praslin we've visited many beatiful beaches: Anse Lazio, Anse Georgette, Anse Volbert, Anse La Blague, also Valle De Mai - unbeliveable place! I suggest hire a car (Paul helped us to find the best offer) for a day or two - You can visit more than by the bus, and it's not expensive. But the TATA-BUS is also an attraction, very cheap, fast and all You will see is the happy people and beautiful landscapes:)
In one word: everything was just PERFECT!
Greets from France!

The Ocean Jewels Resort from Praslin is a fantastic experience, while Brenda and Paul are very good hosts, always friendly, patient and willing to help you with anything that you need. The apartments are very cozy, while there are a lot of good places to buy food from : some small shops close-by, or larger shops from the Grand Anse Center. For those who are willing, fresh fish can be bought at a really good price, which can be cooked in the perfectly equipped kitchen.
In order to travel around Praslin island, you can rent a car or use the public transport network, which is both efficient and cheap : 5 SCR per trip, the equivalent of 0,3 euros. For efficiency in organization and in order to include as many areas of interest around the island as possible, you will need to acquire the bus timetable beforehand.
Valee de Mai is a must-see amd a really unique experience : here you will feel just like in a prehistoric forest where you would almost expect a couple of dinosaurs to suddenly appear. There are a couple of brilliant beaches that should also be included in your tour. If you want to see Anse Georgette, talk to Brenda, and she will announce your arrival to the main gate of Lemuria Resort, on whose territory you will need to pass through and which has an impressive golf field. In order to get to Anse Lazio you will have to undertake a longer road, but it's worth it. For a high point landscape of the island and the surrounding sea you should go to the zone called Zimbabwe, which is less frequented by tourists and has a number of sharp turns and steep roads on the way to the top.
