Green & Chic | Lemuria Resort, Praslin Island, Seychelles

August 27, 2010

Lemuria Resort is probably the most modern resort in the Seychelles. This is not to say that it’s overdeveloped or garish, because it certainly is not, but merely to say that in the laid-back Seychelles one is hard pressed to find service this efficient — many of the other resorts have not quite shed their three-star reputation. In fact if you are out to rough it, this may not be your place — it’s more a decadent, lift-no-finger sort of resort.

The resort is home to the first championship golf course in the Seychelles, and Lemuria, upon opening, snapped up two of Praslin’s finest beaches, Anse Georgette and Anse Kerlan. Suites are strewn along the coast, facing the Indian Ocean, each only 15 meters from the beach, and the enormous new villas, which open practically right onto the sand, are serviced by private villa masters, for even more fawning service than the suite guests receive.

Many of us are content merely contemplating the ocean, and out here the brilliant clear blue will make you forget all about the Caribbean. Those who can’t resist a dip will find the usual array of watersports, from snorkeling to windsurfing, and scuba lessons or deep-sea fishing expeditions can be arranged. On land the options are equally numerous, whether golf, tennis, or a day spent in the spa or lounging by one of the three cascading pools.
