We had the pleasure of staying 8 nights at the hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The staff was very kind and helpfull. We felt at home the whole stay. The chef Asako did probably prepare the best food we ever have tasted and did impress us every single night. Besides the food, Asako was kind and professionel, as he went out after every single meal for hearing about our experience. The beach was stunning, probably the most beautifully and clean at the stretch. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Praslin.
we spent 2 nights in this resort and everything was amazing about our stay their swimming pool is very clean and at a great location their chef ashoka is magician and serves great asian and indian food delicacies breakfast was great with fresh fruits and good options for kids rooms are spacious and interior are very new, entire resort is very green entire staff was helpful and friendly definitely recommended
This is a nice hotel with parking (important if you are going to rent a car on Praslin island), we booked apartment and it was very comfortable and clean. Restaurant is fine, beach in front of the hotel is also fine. We loved that everyday they brought us fresh towels for the beach (because the old ones are sandy). Stuff was helpful, they organized for us some trips like visiting Georgette beach and Curieuse island. The best fact for this hotel is perfect location. Cote D’Or is the best place you can pick if you want to explore the island.
Dear fellow travellers Please start getting ready to book your dream holiday as soon as the pandemic permits you to fly.We have suffered great heartbreak having witnessed what happened in the Seychelles all because of the Corona virus.We were devastated to think that Acajou Beach Resort, this exquisite Gem on Cote D'Or, one of the world Corona lockdown restrictions. It all seems so unfair for the Seychelles nation, seeing that after 63 days of Lockdown, not one person on any of their 115 islands has succumbed to the Covid virus. My husband of 91 and I have travelled from South Africa 5 times to visit Acajou Beach Resort.This dream destination and its beautiful people grows on us more and more.As pensioners, we saved hard and selected this fabulous destination months ago, to splash out in anticipation of celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary there. For us,this idyllic beach resort has become sheer Paradise.We loved every precious moment of our 21 nights stay in March.It was heartwarming to be welcomed back to what has become a Home from Home for us.What a joy to be greeted after a 3 year absence & to find Ms Joanise Doway, the owner and GM and her exemplary Team, still managing so competently, one o of the best hotels you will ever encounter.How lovely to be welcomed so warmly by our old Acajou friends like Ms Barbara, Mr Claude,Mr Fahim, Kuruppu, Rayan, Bettina, Ann May and Leah. Then to meet delightful new staff members who all go the extra mile and for whom nothing ever seems too much trouble.A huge thank you to all who made our stay so memorable and whose cheerful faces will be etched in our memories for many months to come......Mr Roman, Andrew,Ted, Marc,Eranda,Sanjeewa,Charlotte, Jeremy, Eloi and the delightful Philippino chef at the pool bar. And of course to the lovely young ladies like Sally Anne, Sara and Kaycee who took turns at Reception and those behind the scenes.You handled our bookings and confirmed our flights so efficiently and kept us abreast of Corona flight changes...You were all so charming and extremely helpful in allaying our fears about suspended flights, and you all spoke such good English.A special thank you to Ted and Kaycee who even taught me new skills on my ipad! The Acajou staff are all so compassionate and twice we Seniors accepted lifts to the Village from Ms Barbara's assistant and from Mr Fahim.This saved us old folk from walking or waiting for a bus in the heat. When we did take bus rides, we found the bus stop so convenient, just a few paces from the hotel entrance.The buses were punctual, clean and very affordable at 7 rupees per journey. Be sure to book a relaxing massage with Melissa, the hotel's charming therapist from the Philippines.Her nimble fingers go straight to the tense spots and in no time you will feel revitalized! Just alongside her little salon is a bookcase where you can swop your reading material and a few paces away you will find the hotel gym and a handy little boutique and souvenir shop. In South Africa we face a constant battle with litter control and we noticed on arrival, how clean the bus shelters and streets of Praslin are and the roads are in tip top condition. We chose to book the halfboard option and ate dinner at the hotel every night.We were hugely impressed by the quality and variety of the food the chefs served us at the nightly buffets, some having a special Theme like Seafood, Creole, Asian, Barbecue or Mediterranean. No Banters, Vegans or Vegetarians would ever go hungry at Acajou.The tantalising array of desserts demand considerable self control! The breakfast buffets were plentiful and catered for all tastes.The freshly squeezed fruit juice and fresh fruits was a daily delight we appreciated One could write an entire review describing the beautifully appointed rooms, with a garden or sea facing view. Each has a private balcony with table and chairs and a drying rack for wet clothes.We had ample hanging space, drawers and cupboards with a wall safe.Our bathroom was spacious, with two sinks and a choice of very efficient showers.Yogan and the ladies who cleaned our rooms did a superb job. There was always fresh linen, clean towels, bottled water, tea and coffee and plenty of hot water on tap. We love the fact that Acajou is an eco friendly Green hotel, conserving the environment in so many ways and reducing the hotel's carbon footprint. It was wonderful to wallow in the gentle waves and to feel the powdery sand beneath our feet.Throughout our stay the sea temperature was a blissful 29°C! The swimming pool is a delight too, where one finds fresh beach towels, clean toilets on hand and comfortable recliners and colourful beach umbrellas.The pristine hotel grounds are a paradise for garden lovers, bird watchers and artists who will marvel at the beautiful contrasting colours of trees, plants and shrubs and the clever little creative touches made from recycled materials. You will love retreating into the tranquil nooks specially created for relaxing over a coffee, a sundowner, or for a peaceful read or simply to enjoy quiet contemplation. Back home now in the isolation of day 63 of Lockdown, there is so much about Acajou which we miss. We thank the President of Seychelles and his fine Presidential Team for the uncompromising example they set to the rest of the world in preparing so effectively in advance, to fight the virus.How we wish we could have remained with you.The courageous people of the Seychelles are standing together with faith, hope and optimism.You have conquered Corona-19 and will soon rise again to be a much desired, dearly loved and greatly appreciated travel destination.We love you all and hope to see you again next year!…
We were in this wonderful place and we felt fantastic. We spent 3 days here and booked a room overlooking the ocean because it offers the best view and the sound of the waves. The sand is fine on the beach. The care is excellent the staff is very kind attentive and helpful. We think the hotel is more than 5 stars. The head chef there Mr Asoka Indrasekara and he and his team was very hospitable and caring , he paid personal attention to our needs and made us a beautiful honeymoon cake at the end of our visit.We were craving for Indian food and the food they made was scrumptious. There must be many beautiful places in the world, but for us it is the most wonderful. We'll be back as soon as possible.
