We stayed at New Emerald Cove in September 2017, and we have dreamed to go back since then! What a pity to discover that it has been closed permanently. From the location to the food, passing through the friendly staff, everything was perfect during pur...More

Hi, many thanks for your kind review. The NEC closed down permanently in December 2017. The land tortoises have been moved to Fregate Island, where there is a colony of 3,500 free tortoises. So, they will be in good company. I'm glad you have a...More

Hi, yes, the NEC has closed down on the 1st of December 2017. The reasons for the closure are many and maybe this Tripadvisor page is not the proper place to discuss them. In any case, I hope you will carry a good memory of...More

Dear TravellersNS, many thanks for your smart review. As the hotel is closed, as you state, why a negative review? Just to put it down, even if it is closed? Some reviewers, including yourself, will not get a nobel price. I can guarantee that. Kind...More

I don't think it is fair the owners are riding of the success of this hotel just because of the view and its area. Don't get me wrong, The view and area is absolutely Amazing. But.. The rooms are worse than staying on a boat....More

Dear Adeline, I usually don't reply to reviewers. But, in your case, I'll make an exception: your comment is not simply impolite, it is offensive and false. Stating that the owners of the New Emerald Cove Hotel are "basically stealing money" is a bit too...More

About
Description
Built on its own private beach at Anse la Farine, the New Emerald Cove Hotel, provides the perfect gateway to one of the most distinctive islands in the world: Praslin.Anse La Farine is situated opposite the Baie More Ste. Anne jetty and the Hotel is reached by short boat trip. With the sea being the only access route, the New Emerald Cove offers its lucky guests a unique experience: that of being on an island of one’s own.The HotelIdeally situated between a thickly wooded hill on one side, and the azure sea on the other, the New Emerald Cove offers comfortable and refined accommodation in an unforgettable tropical setting. As there is no road access tranquility and privacy are ensured.The reception, the impressive high-ceiling restaurant and the seven chalets - totaling 42 rooms - and are scattered in the lush gardens just beyond a white sandy beach. The swimming pool, cleverly located almost on the beach itself, offers beautiful views of La Digue and Round Island: a scenery that deserves to be admired. This, of course, provides the lucky guests with the added incentive for perfectly justifiable, guilt-free lazing. Less
