Le Domaine de La Reserve is a charming hotel located on a secluded private beach at Anse Petite Cour on the northwest side of Praslin in the midst of a large tropical garden. Sheltered by the surrounding hills and the nearby island of Curieuse, the calm and shallow bay with its turquoise waters and coral reef offer an ideal place for swimming and snorkeling all year around. The hotel has 40 rooms, 8 Superior rooms and 32 Deluxe, all spacious, well-furnished and tastefully decorated. The main restaurant offers a breakfast buffet and at night a candle-lit jetty overlooking the sea, serves Creole, European and Chinese cuisine. There is also an impressive new swimming pool complete with pool bar. Whilst trying to preserve the colonial style, this hotel offers all modern amenities, including weekly cruises, sports fishing, snorkeling and canoeing.
