The New Emerald Cove Hotel has a wonderful location next to Anse la Farine at the South East tip of Praslin. It is remote and peaceful, connected to the Baie St. Anne pier by the complementary hotel shuttle boat only. This is a big plus for those looking for quiet and relaxation in a resort embedded in the nature below...

Beautiful creole style bungalows with an amazing spacious restaurant and bar. Friendly staff and fantastic service. Definately the place to be if you want to disconnect and recharge. Will be returning with the rest of the family.

The hotel is remote, there is no road access, you have to take a boat to main jetty in Praslin. Being remote can be nice, except in the case you really have to rely on the hotel for meals, especially since they don't have any scheduled boat trips around dinner hours. The food served is beyond terrible, I ate better...

If you are looking to stay in an old dark bugs infected cabana, this will be your dream place.... Everything is very old and worn out. The room was not clean at all, dead bugs everywhere. The hot shower ran out pretty quickly. You are stuck in that place because they don't have any road access. You can call it...

Ok the hotel is old, definitely needs refurbishment but it offers the best schnorkelling on the island. And as you pay quite low rates compared to rest of the island, i highly recommend it. Few notes: - limited variety at the buffet but it tasted well and was more than enough - best schnorkelling - definitely swim until the reef....

From the hotel boat shuttle pick up at the main Praslin jetty, the warm welcome by the reception/guest relations staff and the smiling and always attentive restaurant/bar staff we loved our family get-away.

We spent 5 days at this resort and wished for more time! Friendly staff, beautiful room, special environment. Loved the roaming tortoises...4 of them on the grounds. We wanted to visit Aride Island, and the assistant manger made it happen. The only thing that could be improved upon was the food...it was just OK. Definitely stay here again.
