Rigtigt fint hotel, med fine og rene værelser. Hotellet havde det mest venlige og behjælpelige personale. Starten var super dejligt og der var altid plads så man kunne får en liggestol. Dog med ret dårligt internet, da det kun var tidligt morgen der var nogen forbindelse.
Fremragende hotel på fantastisk strand
Den smukkeste beliggenhed med flot flot krystalklart hav hvor vi kunne svømme blandt fisk og en hvid fantastisk strand så langt øjet rækker og med absolut mulighed for ro og at være alene. Sandet er som mel og ikke varmt at gå på - Tilpas intim størrelse familiedrevet hotel hvor personalet kender deres gæster og management ydede suveræn service. Fint poolområde med god forplejning i skyggen. Ved stranden, måske den flotteste på øen, er liggestole og parasoller - håndklæder fås i poolbaren."Den gamle afdeling" af hotellet er bygget af lokalt træ og meget hyggelige rummelige værelser med terrasse mod haven og delvis havudsigt, enkelte med direkte havudsigt. Haven er lavet med hyggekroge og rygeområde. Hovedbygningen er er smuk åben bygning med rigtig god creolsk/lokal og à la carte restaurant, hyggelig bar ( husk en hat) og reception med alle serviceydelser. Fik massage flere gange,kan virkelig anbefales. Servicen er suveræn overalt, fra rengøring som tilpasser sit besøg når vi ikke er på værelset, til havedamens store smil, morgenmad kokkens øjne som lyser op når vi kommer, til barmanden som er stille og forstående, tjenerne som hver dag servicerer os mens de storsmiler og aldrig forventede drikkepenge som vi er vant til, og pigerne i receptionen som hjælper med bil leje, veksler penge, dykning m.m. og ikke mindst direktøren og hendes assistent som var en kæmpe hjælp ved akut sygdom i familien.Alt i alt en af de bedste ferieoplevelser igennem 40 års rejseaktivitet.

Our 7th Visit to Acajou and it Just Gets Better Each Time!
Acajou Beach Resort is Special in just so many ways. It is known as "Praslin's Green Hotel. " Passionate Nature lovers will be delighted to hear that there are numerous eco-friendly practices in place. Acajou is owned and managed by a charming Seychellois family whose patriotism and love for their Island nation is contagious. This stunning 4 Star Gem is a haven of peace and tranquility. Acajou grows on you! You will feel you never want to leave, but when you do, you will be richer by the wonderful new friends you have made there. Acajou welcomes young and old. It's a safe haven for solo travellers. What a thrill it was for us to return in February for our 7th visit. It was heartwarming to see a comfortably full hotel and the joy on the faces of families being welcomed back after all the uncertainty of COVID lockdown and travel restrictions. My husband is 94 and we live in Cape Town, South Africa yet nothing will deter him from taking 3 plane trips each way, to enjoy a dream holiday at Acajou which has a very special place in our hearts and which we have come to regard as our Home from Home on Praslin. The hotel is blessed to be positioned on the beachfront on Côte d'Or, a glorious 3 km stretch of beach, regarded by many visitors as one of Praslin's most beautiful beaches. Acajou is built close to the sparkling turquoise waves that lap the dazzling white, powdery sand.From early in the morning it was a joy to watch from our balcony as pre breakfast swimmers bobbed in the gentle waves enjoying the blissful 28 deg.sea temperature. Get fit enthusiasts jogged along the 3km stretch and dog walkers let their boisterous dogs prance in the waves and chase the bubbles as they broke on the glistening sand. After a blissful stay at Acajou Beach Resort you will soon discover why it's very hard to tear yourself away. At this tranquil little beachfront Gem you will be welcomed warmly and cared for throughout your stay by some of the kindest and most hospitable hotel staff you will ever encounter. The General Manager, Ms Joanise Doway, is elegant and charming.She is loved and respected by her staff of 70+ because she is a Hands On GM who leads by example. Several staff made a point of telling us how they had been supported and cared for during Lockdown. We were impressed by their enthusiasm and fine work ethos. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble. They remained cheerful and went the extra mile to please their guests. Many of the staff made a point of learning our names which made us feel very special. We loved the way in which the staff complement represented a number of nations yet they all worked together harmoniously. Ms Doway's sister, Barbara, plays a key rôle in the hotel and her brother, Mr Claude, is a master photographer and has been the overseer of charming beachfront weddings. Folk from all over the world love the idyllic beach front setting and the fine culinary experience offered to their guests.The glorious Seychelles sunsets and the balmy starry nights are sheer magic. For us it was a joy to return and recognize many staff members who had served us on previous visits. Andrew oozes charm and is the amiable Guest Relations team member with an infectious laugh. He seems able to solve any problem you might encounter. Serah and Gillianne and their new assistants, Angelique and Adriana who work in Reception are extremely helpful and efficient and will help you with bus routes, taxis, car hire, booking tours, currency exchange, confirming flights and printing boarding passes! Browsing through the reviews it appears that for many guests the Restaurant and the appetising food on offer proved to be a special holiday highlight. We highly recommend opting for the Half Board package because the breakfast buffets and themed evening dinner buffets are a delight.The food is tastefully and creatively presented to whet the appetite. Vegetarians and vegans are well catered for. The chief Chef Asoka and his Deputy Indika produce tantalising meals and decadent desserts. Their freshly baked bread, rolls, pastries, croissants, cakes and biscuits are a mouth watering delight.Hats off to the kitchen staff who work in very hot conditions yet always appear with happy smiles. We were overjoyed to find well loved and familiar faces like those of Bettina, Rayan, Kuruppu and Eranda still serving as waitrons or bar tenders, together with Amila, Ishan,Aruksha and charming young Aruna, who wore a captivating smile even when shouldering an enormous load of dirty dishes en route to the kitchen. You will immediately feel contented and relaxed in your beautifully appointed bedroom. The mattresses and pillows are extremely comfortable.There is all you need for a carefree stay...a wall safe for your valuables, ample cupboard and hanging space, hangers, towelling gowns and slippers, a drying rack on the balcony, an extremely quiet yet super efficient air conditioner and brightly coloured beach towels.The bathrooms are bright and spacious with very efficient showers and plenty of hot water. There are twin basins, a make up and shaving mirror and a pull out hairdryer on the wall. Supplies of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and toilet soap are topped up throughout your stay. Bed linen and towels are changed regularly and the House Keeping and room cleaning team under ever faithful Ben and Anne-May ensure that rooms are kept spotless. We thank Leah, Geetha, Yogendra and Michel for caring for us so wonderfully and ensuring that we always had a supply of tea, coffee, milk, fresh fruit and bottled water in our room. We were enchanted by the realistic little bunny, swan, elephant, snail, dog and flowers you so cleverly made out of hand towels as a surprise when we returned from breakfast. Our sincere thanks to Ebrahim who tackled little maintenance requests so willingly and who ensured that the beach was kept in pristine condition with sun loungers freely available. Thank you to the laundry team whose washing and ironing service was exemplary. One of our greatest joys at Acajou is to stroll through the beautifully landscaped tropical gardens. Credit goes to Ms Doway's husband, Mr Hugh Payet, who is not only a well -travelled and astute businessman but someone with artistic flair and insight who enjoys creative innovation. You will love the blend of soothing shades of green and the warm gold and russet tones, with vivid bursts of red, orange, blue, yellow and vibrant purple which lift your spirit. Towering above the garden and built close to the infinity pool and Star Fish bar you will marvel at another of Mr Payet's novel ideas. It's Acajou's newest and very attractive building ingeniously designed to create the impression that you are holidaying on a luxury yacht. Be sure to ask for a quick peep inside. The view from up high as you savour the beauty of the garden and the magnificent beach is breathtaking. Plans are in place to instal a jacuzzi on the top deck! Many reviews mention Acajou's close proximity to nearby shops, the affordable and easily accessible buses and the short stroll along the beach to other hotels and guesthouses.Acajou has its own Gym and a Boutique Shop which sells souvenirs and some items of beach wear and essentials which you may have forgotten in your haste to pack for Paradise! A heartfelt thank you to Ms Doway and her Acajou Team for another wonderful holiday experience.We said farewell with heavy hearts and would dearly love to see you all again.
Our 1st post-pandemic visit to Seychelles and 14th in the last 20 years
It is the 9th times we have been staying at Acajou ! Quite, relaxed and cozy boutique hotel run by Seychellois family with a very personalized service. Excellent for families with babies & kids - with wonderful sallow and clean Cote D’Or beach (one of the best on the island) far away from any noise by neighbourhood village
