Coco De Mer Hotel and Black Parrot Suites

Seychelles, Indian Ocean

The hotel

This friendly hotel sits in lush tropical gardens surrounded by natural beauty and is named after the unique Coco de Mer palm tree, found in abundance here. With renovations at the end of 2017 to enhance the hotel's accommodation, guests can relax in the spacious chalet-style rooms, some of which are sea-facing with private terraces. The beautiful swimming pool overlooks the ocean and the jetty provides a romantic spot for sipping cocktails whilst experiencing a dream sunset. For experiencing other natural wonders of Praslin, the hotel has its own nature trail with guided walks — remember to look out for brightly coloured birds; the black parrot, Madagascar fody and Indian myna bird are regularly seen in the trees, while tropical fruit bats fly high above the ground from sunset until dawn. The Black Parrot Suites is the hotel's adults-only section with its own swimming pool.

Stayed at this place on Praslin, it was a perfect place to stay. This hotel got its own beaches, one can go there at any time. They have good no. of water sports we tried snorkelling and kayaking near to this hotel. It got two pools, one is infinity pool with mesmerising view of sunset and another is temperature controlled pool. The staff was okay, the restaurant serves theme based dinners which one can opt for. Their breakfast spread was extensive. The rooms are ergonomically designed, the view from rooms is beautiful. One can found cocodemer in the hotel premises. This hotel got a very good library as well. Its worth trying esp if you are considering to visit praslin on honeymoon! Read less

He was excellent and good fun! The only suggestion I’d have is the bar area isn’t the most comfortable so there aren’t really many places to relax on for a couple of drinks after dinner. We were on our honeymoon and I’d settle my recommend to others! Read less

We loved our stay at Coco de mer. Lovely rooms with lovely view of the ocean. Clean and fresh. The only thing we wished was a couple of more dishes in the a la carte restaurant. And the wifi was a bit slow. But pool area, gardens, spa and the lovely sundeck and pool area was absolutely fantastic. Nice and helping staff and clean everywhere.

We had an absolutely incredible time at the Coco de Mer Hotel- the service from Anoree (Sri Lankan not sure of spelling) who was so attentive from the minute we arrived. Cindy, Niel and Joa the waiters/ waitresses who were friendly and so helpful! Thank you for an incredible holiday time at your hotel! We will definitely be back again sometime 😊
