A selection of chalets on a hill overlooking Beau Vallon beach, the place is fantastically located 100 yards from the beach. If you get the top chalet, like Seychelles – Coco de Mer on the Anse Bois de Rose beach in Praslin is a premium property with forty spacious chalets. Named for the Coco de Mer palm, this is the sister resort of the exclusive Black Parrot next door. We had the nicer beach than the other hotels to the side of us. Rep was very helpful and tour guides were excellent. Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Beach Resort & Casino boasts of lush tropical gardens and pristine white beaches which are just 15 km from Seychelles International Airport and a mere 5 km from the capital of Victoria.
At Beau Vallon Bay, fun is the name of the game : have a go at the resort’s extensive array of water sports – paragliding, water-skiing, wind-surfing, deep-sea fishing and more. A very nice beach is only five minutes walk from the hotel.
Berjaya Beau Vallon is an affordable beach wedding option abroad. A drive over the island will afford spectacular views and you are never far from superb, often deserted, white sandy beaches. The Beach is very nice and gets quite busy over the weekends.
Right in the middle of Beau Vallon Beach, this was one of the first large resorts to be built in the Seychelles during the 1970s and remains a good value favorite with families. The rooms are adequate and there is a casino and disco on the property. Laidback island character and the exclusivity it offers, Seychelles is a favorite honeymooner destination. The pristine marine life makes a favorite for the divers.
The hotel offers a choice for meals from the Pizzaria to Chinese to the resturant offering a full evening buffet. The Chinese is a little expensive if you are eating alone. There is a charming restaurant that offers a grill on Wednesday and a Creole buffet on Saturday, both with live music. The hotel has a swimming pool, tennis courts and a pool table and offers windsurfing, canoe and boat excursions. The Parrot Restaurant serves American buffet breakfast and theme buffet dinner or the Teppanyaki corner for traditional Japanese grill.
An easy dive onto a reef of large granite boulders stacked together to form areas of archways, swim-throughs and corridors. There are many reef fish, Moray Eels, occasional Hawksbill turtles and ribbon tailed sting-rays can be found while garden eels can be seen in the sand on the offshore side of the second massif, Castle Rock. The area is recognised as a major breeding area for Hawksbill turtles. After Cecile oriented us to the restaurants and facilities around the area, we took our beach towels and headed out for some pizza and more sunbathing. It was a nice 15-20 minute walk along the beach to the center of Beau Vallon.
