The four-star La Reserve is situated on the north-western side of Praslin, right on the beach in the beautifully calm bay of Anse Petite Cour. Its owners are Seychellois and, refreshingly, it's not part of any chain. Whilst in a cove which feels very private, it's still a relatively short walk (~1km) across the headland to the buzzier Anse Volbert beach, which has a handful of restaurants.
Our view of La Reserve
We consider that La Reserve is at the upper end of the four-star scale. It is smart and professionally run and the rooms, especially the 'deluxe' rooms, are of a high standard. La Reserve is in a lovely quiet private setting and we found the staff to be very friendly and efficient, and the food some of the best we eaten on Praslin.
