Chauve Souris Relais
Chauve Souris Private Island with a magical atmosphere
Our Expert’s Highlights
Welcome to the Chauve Souris Relais is a small private island a few hundred meters from the lovely Anse Volbert beach on Praslin Island, accessible by boat in 5 minutes. This Private Island, surrounded by flora, granite boulders, and the Indian Ocean, is ideal for a fantastic holiday.
The tranquility of the property, which has a total of 5 rooms, will be appreciated by guests. In 2007, the hotel was renovated.
The Chauve Souris Relais is a small collection of five natural stone houses with rustic charm and a lounge and dining room. Wooden furniture is used in the rooms to create a relaxing ambiance. Each suite is custom decorated to provide a distinct environment.
Relax on the sun loungers in the solarium while enjoying the delights of the private seaside restaurant, and forget about your everyday troubles, if only for a week or two.
Five apartments were built into the granite island, which was surrounded by palm trees and tropical flora, and were supposed to look like a luxury pirate’s nest, complete with furniture from the “good old days.” Each room has its own distinct personality. All suites offer air conditioning, a balcony or veranda, a private bathroom with a shower, a TV, and a minibar.
The “Pirate Room” features a spacious living and bedroom area, as well as a loft with views of the elegantly decorated suite and direct access to the sea. A quiet whirlpool is tucked up between granite boulders, out of sight. The Pirate Suite is larger than the other suites and features a staircase leading directly to the sea.
The “Castaway” chalet, which is adorned with warm rich wood flooring and dark furniture, is reached by a tiny wooden bridge. There is an outdoor bathtub and a huge private terrace.
The “Farmer Suite,” which is located in the island’s central main house, has a notably big living space. Guests can enjoy a beautiful view of the beach, which is only 200 meters away, as well as the sun sinking over Praslin Island, from a large terrace.
The tastefully decorated “Admiral” room is located on the second story of the same main building. This accommodation has a unique flair, with old, well-maintained furniture, paintings, and weapons from the colonial era, as well as a terrace with a view of the islands of Curieuse and Saint Pierre.
The colorfully designed “Creole” suite is also located in the heart of the island. This apartment has an incredible “island flavor” with its own whirlpool, beautiful oak floors, and proximity to the lounges.
