They said seychelles was a paradise with white beaches and deep blue oceans and so it was but it was just that. Besides the serenic and deserted beaches there is not much one can do on the island of praslin. Yes there are various trips and activities one may indulge in like scuba diving , snorkelling and /or visiting the neighbouring islands there is absolutely nothing one can do on the island as 2 out of 3 days i was there the seas were rough and it was raining in bits and bobs and hence we couldnt do any of those trips.E isoand lacks good bars , restaurants , shopping and entertainment zones. The only places we could go were the beaches which were not idyllic due to the bad weather.
So that leaves us with the place we were holed up in. Nestled between the indian ocean lodge and a few other hotels is Ocean Villa consisting of two villas i.e. Villa Adam and Villa Eve . We chose villa eve as it was the only one available but we dont regret it. It is a fabulous property. Exceptionally clean self catering villas with every facility one could wish for. We were also given a fridge full of goodies including wine. Beers, eggs, milk , bread, sodas courtesy ocean villa which i think is an extremely kind gesture the place being self catered.
The care taker juliette and her colleagues were extremely courteous and helped us with everything we needed. Very sweet people. The villa itself was spacious with a comfortable sofa bed and spacious balcony overlooking grande anse which is where the villa was located. The wifi was free too and the jacuzzi inside the bathroom was a bonus (although the one in the verandah wasnt working).
Also closeby is a supermarket , a church and a restaurant by e name of breeze garden which served excellent pizzas and creole food. It also had a take way serving creole food which is extremely cheap by the local standards.
I would highly recommend this place to any couples /families looking to spend some nice time in praslin.
