10/10 Exceptional

We had a lovely stay at Villa Aya. It’s better to take a car to visit beautiful beaches, since the gems are located distantly. We recommend to take dinners: creole cuisine was delicious, each evening we enjoyed a different amazing dish and a starter. Special thanks for Meruska and the team for hospitality and amazing food.

I loved that it felt like a private apartment equipped with a washing machine. We had privacy yet easy access to staff. Owners were very helpful and friendly.

Wonderful place to stay on Praslin
Villa Aya is a wonderful oasis of peace and calm on Praslin. The staff are a delight, friendly and welcoming. The food (you must try) is divine, the grilled fish with saffron rice, vegetables and coconut sauce was just immense. Good wifi, nice pool and good location. I would recommend and will definitely stay again.

Une epérience à vivre absolument
Le séjour à la Villa Aya fut assurément le plus beau des moments que nous avons eu à passer lors de notre passage aux Seychelles. Tout a été parfait depuis : - les échanges de correspondance qui ont précédé notre arrivée ; - le chaleureux accueil qui nous a été réservé par le couple Achil & Meruska ; - la propreté et la beauté de notre cadre d'accueil tant général que privé ; - la disponibilité et le sens de communication que nous ont témoigné nos hôtes (disponibles pour nous proposer des programmes d'activité, des sites à visiter...) ; - la chaleur de nos hôtes en compagnie de qui nous nous sommes vraiment sentis en famille, parlant de tout et de rien ; - l'amabilité avec laquelle le couple nous a servi un somptueux diner créole et s'est proposé à nous reconduire au port lors de notre départ (moyennant modique somme) ; - le cadeau souvenir qui nous a été offert au moment de notre départ... Bref, les mots ne seront jamais assez forts pour traduire toutes les émotions ressenties à la Villa Aya en compagnie du couple Achil et Meruska. Sans aucun doute, nous nous y installerons lors de notre prochain voyage aux Seychelles.

Moderner Bungalow mit allem was man braucht
Es handelt sich um drei Wohneinheiten auf dem Privatgelände der Betreiber, einen kleinen, einen mittelgroßen Bungalow sowie eine Villa. Alle drei teilen sich einen kleinen Pool. Wir hatten den mittleren Bungalow gemietet, mit einem großen Wohn-Schlafzimmer, einem kleinen separaten Schlafzimmer, Küche, Bad und Terrasse. Die Terrasse liegt direkt an der Grundstücksgrenze (Mauer), dahinter ist ein kleiner Fluß mit Palmen und anderen Bäumen. Ganz hübsch. Der Bungalow ist ausgestattet mit Waschmaschine, WLAN (hat leider nicht immer funktioniert...), Fernseher, zwei Klimaanlagen, Deckenventilatoren, Safe. Alles modern und gut in Schuss. Die Inhaber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit - wir wurden vom Flughafen abgeholt und auch wieder hingebracht, und als der Pizzadienst nicht mehr lieferte, fuhr Ashi los und hat für uns die Pizzen abgeholt. Nochmals vielen Dank!! Leider gibt es aber doch einen dicken Minuspunkt: Zweimal während unseres Aufenthaltes wurde im Garten Müll verbrannt (u.a. Baumaterialien wie Silikonkartuschen etc.) und der Qualm zog zu uns auf die Terrasse rüber. Das war wirklich nicht besonders toll...

The service is excellent, the owner and staff were very hospitable, helpful (by organizing transfers, trips and bbq for example) and friendly. The rooms are very clean, they are cleaned everyday.
