“Perfect hotel, perfect staff, perfect island”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Our Kolibri Suite at the Dhevatara Beach Hotel was the perfect setting for ten days in paradise. From the moment we walked in till the moment we had to leave everything was pure pleasure. A beautifully designed suite, a delicious cuisine and very attentive and cordial staff throughout the entire premises made these days unforgettable. A symphony of delights.

A beautiful small hotel in a dreamlike location.
The always smiling and very friendly staff created a warm and welcoming atmosphere from the second of our arrival. Discreet but always attentive.
Our suite was equally welcoming, spacious and imaginatively designed. Every item was chosen with love for the detail.
Our terrific first impressions were even exceeded by the restaurant. Top class food, a fine selection of locally inspired dishes and ingredients to international cuisine of the highest standard, presented with creativity and imiganiation. Fantastic!
The beach fulfilled every postcard idyll of the Seychelles and enjoying the sunset in a light breeze was almost too beautiful to be real.
My wife will leave me no choice.
We have to come back!

Everything was really really great. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Special thanx to the staff, every single one off them! You make us feel unique! The restaurant also highly recommended! Just feel sorry that we couldnt enjoy the beach because off the windy weather. Altrhough a bit pricey, considering the high prices in Seychelles where quality was not always following, Dhevatara worth every cent!

Dhevatara Beach Hotel was the first stop in the Seychelles on our honeymoon after one week on safari in Kenya. We took the flight there from Mahe (very convenient) and the property was conveniently located nearby.
Pros:
The hotel is very new, beautiful, full of great design details and welcoming.
Our suite was equally nice and welcoming.
The staff were attentive throughout - concierge, restaurant/bar, across the board.
Estelle - the concierge was helpful at all times and helped make sure every aspect of our stay on the island, not just at the resort, was memorable and special.
The grounds: pool, beach access, restaurant, common areas were all very attractive.

Additionally, the food at the restaurant was fantastic. Breakfasts were delicious and options were extensive. We had dinner there 2x - once for a honeymooner dinner. The food and service were always fantastic - I would say one of the best restaurants on the island and worth a trip even if you are not a guest.

Con:
It was tradewind season at this side of the island. As a result, there was incessant wind all day blowing in from the beach that also brought large amounts of seaweed to the shoreline. The wind made it difficult to relax on the grounds.

But the staff realized this and helped us arrange a very inexpensive rental car so that we could explore the "less windy" parts of the island. It was a blessing in disguise, had this not been the case we would not have explored Praslin as much as we did. We visited beautiful beaches - Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette and found excellent restaurants (with the help of the concierge) and had a great time on the island.
Note that the tradewinds switch from one side of the island to the other depending on the time of year so it is worth investigating and there are portions of the year where this resort is "windless".

In short - we highly recommend this hotel. The service, grounds, food and accommodations were all superb. Just investigate the tradewinds - even during the tradewind season, as it was for us, we had a wonderful experience!

A fabulous setting for those in search of tranquillity and a truly delighted service.   Food lovers beware!  Kevin, the young chef, masterminds some of the most exquisite cuisine from a late breakfast all the way through to dinner.  And the hotel attracts a very nice set of patrons.  Enjoy!

As our last holiday before our baby joins us, we were looking for somewhere that we could totally relax- Dhevatara Beach Hotel was the perfect choice.
We got the boat from Mahe to Praslin- you may want to consider flying as the sea was very rough (August), and the flight is only 15 mins compared to just under an hour on the swells!
We spent just under two weeks at Dhevatara Beach Hotel, halfboard- a bit of a gamble as we were obligated to dine in the hotel every night- something that we had never done before on previous holidays. The gamble paid off. The restaurant is an open air sheltered beautiful spot, overlooking the gently lit pools, the bracing swimming pool and trees outside. The 4 course meals were AMAZING- presentation, freshness and taste were perfect every night. The chef, Kevin Rioux, who we later discovered was the sous chef filling in for the chef who was on holiday(he should be promoted! So talented!), catered for my vegetarian, pregnant diet requirements and each night was special. Word was certainly getting around as guests from other hotels were coming for dinner- a compliment in itself.
Our room, the Paradis (check it out on the website) was beautiful. There was a welcoming bottle of red wine (much appreciated by the hubby- alcohol is v expensive!) and fruit platter on arrival- a lovely touch. The four poster bed emulated the trees outside, stained glass represented the trees of Praslin, and the view from our room was of lush gardens, lazy hammocks swaying in the breeze and the Indian ocean.
On discovering that it was our wedding anniversary during our stay, we were also given a beautiful flower adorned bottle of champagne. It tasted all the better sitting under the stars, sipping it, listening to the waves of the ocean- an anniversary to remember!
There is a kayak available to use which my husband did on several occasions, while watchful staff monitored his progress discreetly from the gardens. There is also the opportunity to go deep sea fishing for sail fish etc. This was expensive but for a one off, worth doing. Unfortunately the spa was closed when we were there as there were no therapists- disappointing but when this service is available, am certain that it will only make Dhevatara Beach Hotel more special.
It being a small hotel, the atmosphere is informal and we got to know most of the staff, Rene the manager, Estelle and Norma on the front desk, Kelvin the cocktail man, lovely Vanessa and Estelle who converted us to fresh citronelle (lemongrass) tea, Virgine, Kumar the coconut man :) and Wilson who on the drives to Anse Lazio beach would tell us about island living. Such a warm and friendly service- we were truly sad to leave not only because it had been the perfect, restful holiday but to leave such lovely, genuinely warm people.

From the first second due to our departure we were treated with a warm and welcoming service from the poolboy to the manager. They cared for all of our requests and helped us wherever possible. All of them live the motto: If you are happy, I am too.
Our room the Koray suite is perfect fitted with nature materials like wood and stone which you can find everywhere in the hotel too. We loved the ambient and soft lightscenery combined with matching colors and modern parts like the milky glass wall between bath and livingroom.
Thanks Dhevatara for great days on Praslin, especially to Estelle and Norma from the frontdesk, Calvin the coctail-king and Wilson the man for everything!
