The Villa Bananier is a lovely hotel situated near to two of Praslin's most beautiful beaches, Anse Volbert and Anse Gourvernement. The villa also lies close to the small beach village Cote d'Or, which offers small shops and some good restaurants for guests to enjoy.
2 × Superior Room (up to 2 people)
4 × Double Room Villa Annex (up to 2 people)
Activities and specials:
- Serene yet lively location. There are several restaurants and shops within walking distance, inviting guests to take an evening stroll.
- The owner of the villa is friends with the head of Pascal Opal Car Rentals, so guests can easily arrange a rental car for around €40/day, delivered straight to the hotel.
- Besides the nearby shops and restaurants, you can also find a number of third-party tour operators offering boat trips to some of the Seychelles' other islands.
- St. Pierre island, a real Robinson Crusoe affair, is only 5 minutes away by boat, and definitely worth a visit!
- The owner of the villa offers a marvellous boat tour to the islands of Curieuse and St. Pierre.
The Villa Bananier, run by Seychellois local Anne and her husband, lies in a prime location, near to the coastal village Cote d'Or, the luxurious Le Duc hotel, and one of Praslin's best beaches, Anse Volbert. A small path leads from the hotel to the beach and its small offshore islets. The slope of the sand into the water is gentle, and the sand itself is pristine and white, making the beach a perfect prospect for swimming all year-round. This contrasts with some of Praslin's other beaches, which suffer from seaweed at various times throughout the year.
However, the beach is far from the location's only advantage. The nearby Cote d'Or village offers some excellent small beach restaurants, including the Creole 'Art' Café, complete with its uniquely attractive interior. This gives guests of the Villa Bananier maximum flexibility with their meal options. If you don't feel like eating at the hotel, you have other options right on your doorstep. However, if you do decide to enjoy the hotel's food, prepared by the landlady and her team, then you can book it on-site.
All in all, the Villa Bananier is a welcoming, pleasantly-run establishment, and the owners are commited to making their guests feel at home with little touches such as the safe at reception and the overnight laundry service. Therefore, the hotel receives our genuine recommendation!

The trade winds between December and February will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin. This may make the water a little cloudy but also provides yet more evidence that the underwater world around the Seychelles is in top health. Please note that the opposite coast of the island of Praslin does not have this effect.

Squeaky clean. The house and furnishings are of high quality and are in a quiet side street with a view of the evergreen hills. The decor is complete, nothing is missing. The fact that construction work is taking place in the neighborhood should not be a problem. Apparently there is construction all over the island ... the owners and staff are nice and unobtrusive. A bus stop is nearby. The best takeaway can be easily achieved. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation in the guest house was very good. The room was large and clean. The room was also cleaned daily. The location was ok too. To the beach you had to walk about 400 meters. On site there are also good shopping and restaurants. We would recommend this accommodation. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
