For the second week in Seychelles Serge Marizy and Anthony Riviere take us on Paradise Island Praslin and La Digue.
Deserted paradisiacal beaches and coconut forests unexplored. These are the treasures that hide the Seychelles. On the islands of Praslin and La Digue, the desire to preserve the authenticity of the landscape feels.

The influx of tourists is under control but does not prevent both the development of the hospitality industry. Three types of structures differ on these two islands guest houses, hotels in the old and new boutique hotels.

The scenery speaks for itself. The decor both heavenly and intimate dream. There’s no crowd, no influx of tourists. The granite blocks are the color of the sun, sky and sea on beaches reserved for the most curious. The charm is the strength of the small island of La Digue. With its neighbor Praslin is genuine asset Seychelles. Here no urbanization, no highways, the two islands want to preserve.

To make the most of this charming guesthouses add a touch of freedom. Carl Mills has several La Digue. When he started in the business, the island had only twenty structures of this type. There are a hundred today.

But small structures are not sufficient. Despite the desire to preserve nature and the charm of the islands of La Digue and Praslin, the two islands are moving … constantly changing. The major hotels are located. But even in large structures, marriage with nature and preserving the authenticity see at first glance. In one of the oldest hotels in Praslin, built in 1987, the premium is present. But luxury and modernity gave way to the charm and tradition.

And out of the ordinary, new hotels pushing the concept of authenticity to its extreme. A La Digue, a few meters from the port, a small guest house turned into a few years real boutique resort. But with attention to blend into the natural setting. The rooms are built on the hill without no trees are destroyed. And the spa is simply embedded in the rock.

The same way as the buttocks cocos and Vallée de Mai, the islands of Praslin and La Digue are preserved. To achieve this, the Seychelles government refuses mass tourism. The development of the two islands is without measure.
