The four-star Le Domaine de La Reserve is situated on the north-eastern 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 a big 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 on various visits here we've found the staff to be very friendly and efficient, and the food some of the best we eaten on Praslin.
