Sunbed-Surfers & Island-Explorers

Whether you are here for a romantic retreat or a family getaway, a needed work escape or a more-than-well-deserved holiday, at Paradise Sun Hotel in Praslin we’ll look after you.

We want your kids to sleep soundly after a day in the ocean, on the beach and in the gardens; we make it easy for romantic moments with flowering gardens and romantic French-Creole bungalows; and we have enough amenities to keep island explorers and sunbed-surfers happy.

However you plan on spending your time at our Praslin hotel, our on-site tour operator, dive instructors, water taxis and home-comforts make it easy to relax and explore.

We’ll let you know what’s planned when you arrive.

Family & Kids

Big gardens and an even bigger beach, warm shallow ocean with only gentle waves as well as a pool, table-tennis, soccer, volleyball and our resident entertainment team will keep the kids from getting bored or wishing for their Xbox. We can also help with child-minding and cot providing when you need a break or if you are bringing a little one.

On & Under the Water

Borrow a snorkel, join us for a complimentary scuba diving lesson, let us arrange an island taxi to the best dive and snorkel spots or borrow a SUP or a kayak and paddle around our bay. Seychelles is best appreciated at sea.


Centrally located in our Reception area, the hotel shop offers clothing, souvenirs and forgotten items.

  • Monday to Friday 09h00 to 19h30
  • Saturday 09h00 to 12h00 & 17h00 to 19h30
  • Sunday 16h30 to 19h30


Our on-site tour operator can arrange all types of island excursions from turtle spotting to giant tortoise petting, from coco de mer holding to best beach discovering. In the hotel we have a car hire desk and guided tour operator. On the beach we have an on-site diving school as well as Praslin’s top-rated boat taxi. So, whether you are curious about Curieuse or want to see more of Mahé we can show you.

Health & Wellness

Island indulgences or island revitalizing, Paradise Sun makes it a little easier to enjoy some of both. Dinner buffets include plenty of island salads and jungle fresh fruits, a class of yoga is arranged during the week and our organic spa is open for guests to experience Balinese relaxation in a Seychelles setting.

WiFi Connected

You might be too busy in the surf to do any online surfing, but in case you want to upload some Instagram-envy inducing pics or check that your cat is being looked after, we provide uncapped WiFi for free. Just remember speeds are a little more laid-back-island and not inner-city-fast.

Island Office

Last minute business or only-just-remembered unsent emails need not ruin your holiday. We have a computer available for you to use, WiFi connectivity in rooms and common areas and our reception team is always happy to help with printing. Send that email, submit that report, get back to the beach.

Pool Time

Our free-form split-level pool is perfect for our younger guests with a shallow section at just 0.6m deep and the upper level pool a more adult friendly 1.4m depth with an infinity edge that runs into the kiddies section. Chill poolside and enjoy palm tree shade on the lawn or take it easy under a sun umbrella on the deck surrounding the pool. The pool is well positioned next to our main building where you can enjoy a lazy breakfast and daily afternoon coffee and cake.

  • Free form
  • 0.6m pool and 1.4m pool

Child Care

Paradise Sun is the perfect family island getaway. Warm shallow ocean at our sheltered beach, soft sand stretching for 2km, year-round sunny weather and a calendar of kid-friendly activities  during the week is enough to keep the children happy.

Of course, you might also need a bit of a break. Whether you want to learn to scuba or the kids are a little too young for some of the off-island snorkeling spots, maybe you fancy a Paradise Sun signature massage or a romantic beach dinner, or even just want some uninterrupted beach book reading. Whenever you need a break we can arrange a qualified child minder to take care of your precious little ones for an hour or two, the entire day or evening.

  • Child care is an additional cost
  • Cots are free on request
  • We need 24 hours’ notice to arrange child care

Praslin Sunset Cruise

Every Wednesday we invite our guests to join us on a complimentary sunset cruise. Book ahead and come on board for a late afternoon trip around the northern part of Praslin as the sun goes down.  We sail from Paradise Sun to Anse Georgette to a spectacular sunset. Reserve your space at Reception early as this free Praslin cruise is subject to availability


Through a number of initiatives, we support local communities and encourage eco-friendly practices as well as educating guests about our environment and the Seychellois way of life. Our garden is a flower filled celebration of Praslin variety and a perfect way for our guests to learn more about the botanical marvels of the island on one of our nature walks.

You’ll also notice complimentary filtered water in your room. We filter and bottle it on site and use re-usable glass bottles so you can enjoy incredibly fresh water with a good conscience.
