History & Romance at Beau-Vallon Beach

Le Meridien Fisherman’s Cove was the first hotel on Mahé and is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles – the picturesque Beau Vallon Beach. Since its construction in 1943, it has, of course, been renovated and renewed several times.

This boutique hotel has a charm all of its own: it offers unique experiences, has a wonderful seafood restaurant and a great pool right by the ocean. With its traditional thatched roofs and lush tropical gardens, it is stylish yet comfortable at the same time!

From the open lounge you have a spectacular view of the ocean.


The 68 rooms and suites all have a terrace or balcony and are decorated in either Creole or contemporary style.

We stayed in a cozy superior double room with an ocean view.

The bathtub is right next to the bed.

The deluxe cottage-style suites are spread out in the garden, have cozy seating areas and great views of the Indian Ocean.

Infinity Pool

It is the only hotel with a pool right on the beach and it is quietly located at the end of the Beau Vallon Bay. From here you can watch the colorful hustle and bustle on the beach and enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean with a delicious cocktail in hand.

It is, of course, also nice to mix with the locals on the beach and swim or snorkel in the sea!

Zen Spa

The beautiful spa has two double massage rooms with outdoor showers, a gym, a steam bath and a plunge pool. The spa not only offers great massages such as Aromatherapy, Balinese, Swedish, Indian Head Massage, Back, Neck and Scalp Massage, Touch for Two and a Honeymoon Package (Honeymooners Celebration / 120 min), but one can even learn a few basic massage techniques  that you can then test on your partner at home (Massage Discovery)!

Restaurant Le Bourgeois (Restaurant-Website)

The à la carte seafood restaurant not only offers excellent service, divine Creole cuisine merged with French sophistication, but also a beautiful view of the ocean and the Beau Vallon Bay!

Le Bourgeois Menu

Since we first time came to the Seychelles, we both love Red Snapper! So, of course we had to try it here!

Stuffed Red Snapper
Ricotta-dill filling, grilled vegetable timbale, tomato-shellfish foam, green oil (SCR 315 – about 22 EUR)

And it was the best Red Snapper we have ever had! Really magical – so tender – incredible!

Homemade Caramel Ice-Cream
Peanuts, Popcorn & Chocolate sauce (SCR 160 – approximately 11 EUR)

The design with its cozy rock walls, warm colors and great details is tasteful and romantic! Dinner at this restaurant is definitely not to be missed!

Restaurant Le Cardinal

The main restaurant offers breakfast with an ocean view and for dinner delicious Creole cuisine with themed buffets and live music.

As you can see, we visited the Seychelles in January during the rainy season. However, it mostly rained only briefly in the morning or at night, otherwise there was only radiant sunshine and it was nice and not overcrowded anywhere!


Snorkeling Trail „UNLOCK THE SEA“
Go on a guided snorkeling tour with marine experts from the Marine Conservation Society Seychelles or explore the underwater world on the snorkeling route recommended by the hotel on your own and also learn more about marine conservation. (more info)
