Coco De Mer Hotel & Black Parrot Suites 

An intimate beachside bolthole

A serene boutique hotel set upon a granite outcrop surrounded by lush foliage overlooking the ocean.

Utilising natural stone and dark wood, the main building of Coco De Mer blends with its beautifully rugged surroundings, giving the hotel a hideaway feel. Set on the promontory away from the main hotel, the exclusive Black Parrot Suites come complete with a private lounge, bar and pool – perfect if you’re looking for a luxurious escape. Complete with a rim flow infinity pool and generous sun deck, a great new addition to the hotel is the romantic ocean jetty – one of the best places to see a breathtaking Seychelles sunset.

Why we love Coco De Mer Hotel & Black Parrot Suites

  • It’s in a wonderfully secluded location on Praslin’s sleepy south-west coast, surrounded by tropical greenery

  • With just 40 rooms and 12 suites, the staff can get to know your name and preferences, so the service feels warm and personal

  • If you upgrade to the over-14s Black Parrot area, you’ll have access to an exclusive bar, lounge and pool

  • The treatments in the inviting spa feature natural local ingredients, so you’ll emerge relaxed and smelling wonderful
