Authentically Seychellois...

Peace. Quiet. Authenticity.
Guests of Indian Ocean Lodge can expect nothing less, and probably quite a bit more…

 Tucked away in a quiet corner of Praslin, the Indian Ocean Lodge is an affordable small hotel establishment completely owned, and operated, by Seychellois.

From the cuisine, to the interior décor and the warm faces greeting you at each turn, every point of contact invokes a truly authentic Seychelles experience.

A stay at Indian Ocean Lodge is the next best thing to calling Seychelles home.

The Location

The Indian Ocean Lodge is situated right along the beach of Grand Anse, just on the outskirts of the tiny village by the same name. Grand Anse is one of the longest beaches on the island, with shallow flats that extend far out to the reef, and water barely lapping along the shore. This makes it ideal for family activities or simply strolling up and down the coastline.

 The hotel is just a 5-minute drive from the Praslin airport, 15 minutes from the Baie Ste Anne Jetty, about 20 minutes from Cote D’Or beach (a hotspot for diving and island excursions), and 35 minutes away from the world famous beach of Anse Lazio.




Flights are available several times daily from the main island, Mahé, through the Air Seychelles Domestic Services.
It is recommended that you book your domestic flight connection when you book your international flight into the Seychelles.


The Cat Cocos ferry service operates daily trips between Mahe and Praslin.  The 44km cruise is a scenic ride with several islands, and perhaps some dolphins, to see along the way. Schedules can vary, so it is advisable to check ferry times in advance.
