Chic beach boutique hotel in Creole style
This 4-star boutique hotel opened in 2016 and has 40 chalets. It is located in a quiet bay on the northeast coast of Mahe at Carana Beach. Our taxi driver immediately told us, that is one of the most beautiful and quiet beaches on the island.
The CaranaBeach Hotel belongs to the friendly Mason family and it is their third hotel. Mason’s Travel is the largest travel agency in the Seychelles. Recently, we have also had the privilege to visit the beautiful Denis Private Island on Denis Island and the “Indian Ocean Lodge” on Praslin. The three hotels are perfect for island hopping!
Here, you will find timeless, classy design mixed with traditional Creole island architecture and modern beach house style. Warm natural tones, the finest fabrics, neutral and modern colors as well as ocean themed decor elements ensure a cozy ambience. Style wise, it is similar to the tastefully designed, wonderful lodge on Denis Island.
“When you come to CaranaBeach you come to uncover the true island experience, where the Seychelles spirit awaits you.”
The large infinity pool is situated directly next to the bar and offers great ocean views.
The 150 m long secluded beach is for hotel guests only and therefore mostly deserted. It is framed by beautiful granite rocks on both sides. The waves are quite big as there is no reef here!
All Ocean View Pool Chalets have sea views and are surrounded by rocks and beautiful tropical vegetation.
12 of the chalets (Ocean View Pool Chalets) also have their own plunge pools and Nespresso machines.
The modern touch can especially be seen in the bathrooms that are illuminated in cheerful purple.
Restaurant & Bar
The restaurant and the trendy bar right on the beach are not just very cozy, but also offer great food with stunning ocean views.
The chef, Darren Roberts, who hails from Australia was also in charge of the kitchen on Denis Island and his dishes are truly a culinary delight.
The Carana Beach Bar & Restaurant is open during the day and in the evenings. Here you get to enjoy snacks and cocktails in the fresh sea air.
Most of the ingredients are from Mike and Kathy Mason’s own farm on Denis Island where they keep some livestock such as guinea fowls, ducks, geese, pigs and cows.
Breakfast and dinner are served à la carte in the Lorizon restaurant.
The spa has two treatment rooms for massages and beauty treatments.
