We were in Seychelles for a week-long honeymoon in September 2021 and we stayed in a different hotel room each night. This was no question top 3 for us. The views from the resort are incredible, the two pools (especially the hang out area on the water with the plunge pools) were a huge perk, and they had some of the best food/drinks of anywhere we stayed. The rooms were clean and modern, and the staff were all very friendly. Highly recommend if you plan to visit Praslin!

4/10 Fair

Many extra hidden charges
Very expensive for what it’s worth, they make you pay for espresso coffee in the room. I was charged for 2 water in the mini bar when I only drunk 1. The charge is for the drinks when It was supposed to be free because the room came with a half board but they didn’t inform that drinks are separate.

Le Duc de Praslin is truly beautiful. 5 star property. You can have it all at Le Duc from a long white sand beach to sparkling clean pools, a new beachside club with music and dancing and comfortable rooms. The design of the buildings and gardens is stunning with beautiful driftwood and plantings and more. We completely enjoyed our stay. The food is very good and a selection that should make everyone happy. The staff is quick to be helpful and the owner Robert is always around checking in with guests. A special thank you to Rawan who always remembered how we liked our favorite cocktails :)

8/10 Very good

Nice hotel
Our experience was overall very good at Le Duc hotel. Food, restaurants, and beach were in high standard. Breakfast was not very diverse. There were ants in our room from the second we enter the room, and it took 3 days for the maintenance to seel the shower (they were only in the bathroom). Also, we had one day and a half with no hot water in the shower. The service was very good. I would like to mention the receptionists, Hillary and Jenne for there kindness, they help us a lot with finding cool places on the island and the area.

The Duc
We enjoyed the Duc. The staff were outstanding. This was really the strength of the operation. The location was also terrific. We stayed in the just-opened new complex. The rooms were ok but the new swimming pool was very, very nice. The new complex also features a very complete exercise room and even had a trainer available. The cafe next to the Duc (and run by them) had a very nice porch just above the high tide line on the ocean. We enjoyed that tremendously. There were a few negatives. Like almost every place we visited in the Seychelles the internet was sporadic and unreliable. All but the most basic browsing or email was generally not possible. When we did complain, however, the staff worked hard to improve what they could. The breakfasts offered by the hotel were generally good, but we didn't like the dinners which seemed very meat-heavy. There was generally no vegetarian option. (That having been said, I'm sure the staff would have done something had we asked). Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

A very well run establishment. The locals had respect and admiration for the owner, which was very impressive. Very peaceful place, all you heard was the ocean and local wildlife. Laid back and relaxing atmosphere. Reception was extremely friendly and helpful.

Beautiful hotel near the beach, in the heart of Praslin Island. Stuff is great, rooms are big, and everything is even much better than on the pictures. Perfect place for your hollyday on SEYCHELLES.
