A boutique hotel with the Seychelles spirit

A perfectly located family owned, small boutique hotel situated on the north east coast of Mahe, rests Carana Beach Hotel. The hotel only has 40 chalets all light, bright and airy, when you open the terrace doors and spill out to views of the turquoise ocean and surrounding jungle. For more privacy we'd recommend upgrading to the Ocean View Chalets with their own private plunge pool. Carana Beach Hotel's main pool is the perfect spot to rest up on a cabana and enjoy the food and drink service, enjoy casual dining at the main bar and in the evening the main restaurant is the idyllic spot to enjoy the warm sea breeze whilst sampling the menu inspired and sourced from the family owners farm. The small spa is a haven of relaxation and wellness contributing to your true Seychellois experience. 

Top Tips from our Experts

Destination Manager

"Not only is Carana located on such a picturesque beach, its only a 15 minute drive away from the Seychelles captial - Victoria. Carana is the perfect base for not only relaxation, but for island exploration too."

Beautiful Location

Worcester, United Kingdom

This lovely small hotel is built just above a stunning beach. The walk to the very nice semi-detached chalets can be quite steep. The chalets are very nicely furnished and decorated. There is a mini fridge to use and you are given two bottles of water each night. Toiletries are provided in the form of large bottles. The quality is not particularly good and I used my own shampoo and conditioner. The pool bar is great, overlooking the stunning beach and pool. Good food is served here in a casual environment all day until 9.30pm so you don’t need to go in the main more formal restaurant which is quite expensive and lacks ambience. The hotel is not within walking distance of anywhere so you need a hire car to go anywhere. Once you’ve been around the island you will appreciate coming back to this lovely hotel. There are plenty of comfortable double and single loungers by the pool, bar service all day, friendly staff and a stunning view. What more could you want for a chilled out break .....

Nice hotel but poor back office service

Buxton, United Kingdom

Stayed for three nights. Booked online but the booking process was a nightmare, particularly paying and needed I. The end to get help from a professional travel agent to sort. The admin was all handled through Masons Travel who own the hotel. Booked an airport transfer and got an email confirmation BUT there was NO transfer and the Masons Office at the airport knew nothing about us. Had booked their island tour but was cancelled on the day. Supposedly not enough people. Reception then called a taxi to do the tour for which we had to get currency at the hotel and who paid him cash. When we got into Victoria, the capital, you couldn’t move for Masons Tours people and guides doing island tours for a large cruise ship. Obviously we were t important! When we then left the hotel, although we’d arranged a transfer to be charged to our account BUT when we got to our destination, it turned out the taxi driver hadn’t been paid so we had to scrat around and pay cash in Euros. But at least it was half the price the hotel had actually wanted. A nice hotel, setting, staff and food but an admin service that era.ly lets them down. Wouldn’t recommend
