Indian Ocean Lodge
The Indian Ocean Lodge lies on Praslin’s southern coast, hidden behind Takamaka Trees and tropical palms along the island’s longest beach, Grand Anse, just on the outskirts of the tiny village by the same name. Grand Anse is one of the longest beaches on the island, with shallow flats that extend far out to the reef, and water barely lapping along the shore. This makes it ideal for family activities or simply strolling up and down the coastline.
The hotel is just a 5-minute drive from the Praslin airport, 15 minutes from the Baie Ste Anne Jetty, about 20 minutes from Cote D’Or beach (a hotspot for diving and island excursions), and 35 minutes away from the world famous beach of Anse Lazio.
The 32 guest rooms are nestled along the beach across eight two-storey structures of traditional Creole architecture, and surrounded by tropical gardens.
The interiors have been designed to uniquely identify with Praslin in every way, with pastel and earth tones, along with fixtures and made out of traditional materials like palm leaves and coconut husks and shells. The white-washed furniture, built by local carpenters, lends a soothing, rustic finish to the room.
All of the rooms have been designed to easily convert into ideal accommodation for families. Standard rooms are equipped with king-size beds, but two adjacent built-in couches are easily converted into twin beds, allowing a family of 4 to be comfortably accommodated. Each room is also inter-connected to its adjacent room, which offers plenty of space for families of even up to 8 individuals.
The spacious bathrooms were created with the guests' day schedules in mind. The double shower means you can freshen up and get rid of the sand you have accumulated from the beach without waiting around for your partner, and clothes-lines ensure those wet bathing suits dry out in good time.
Please note The South-East trade wind, between May and October normally creates seasonal movements of seaweeds onto the beach, Please note that during this time frame, we recommend that one makes use of our daily shuttle to the Cote d'Or coast.
This free daily shuttle bus service to Cote d'Or (departing in the morning and returning in the afternoon).
To explore the island just take a bike. In the neighbourhood there are possibilities to rent a bike.
If your prefer to dive or rent a boat just ask the representative of Mason's Travel, our local agent, for the possibilities.
