Carana Beach Hotel, Mahé

Excellent - £££


The Carana Beach Hotel embodies the Seychelles’ lifestyle. People here are truly passionate about the white sand beaches and turquoise oceans, giving the entire place a buzz and energy that will inspire any visitor.

This hotel is in a picture-perfect spot in Mahé. If you imagine a postcard from a holiday in the Seychelles, you’ll pretty much see the Carana Beach Hotel.

It has a slightly wild feel to it thanks to the greenery that spreads over the resort. Tropical gardens line the beach and offer cool respite for visitors.


The Carana Beach Hotel has 40 spacious villas with the gorgeous sea views you’d expect from a luxurious resort. Walk out of your door and you’ll be on the stretch of sand within seconds.

If you’re prepared to splash out a little more cash, you could even opt for a chalet with a plunge pool. Don’t worry if you don’t though, the hotel has an exquisite beachfront swimming pool for you to enjoy.

While you’re there, you’ll get to sample a range of delicious local food. The menu is inspired and sourced from the hotel’s very own farm, so it’s bound to be good. You can eat in the restaurant, in your chalet or even order food direct to the beach.

Make sure you try at least one of the soothing and relaxing treatments in the Sens Spa. All the wraps, scrubs and masks are made from local ingredients, so you won’t get a treatment like this anywhere else.

Why we love it

Carana Beach is a much-welcome modern boutique-style resort on an island that lacks similar options.
