The beautiful Coco de Mer boutique hotel is located on one of the world’s loveliest beaches, the Anse Bois de Rose on the island of Praslin, and surrounded by gardens filled with bougainvillea, frangipani and hibiscus. Perched on a rocky outcrop, affording spectacular views of the ocean and neighbouring islands, are the 12 exclusive Black Parrot Suites, now called Junior Suites, offering especially romantic and secluded accommodation, and enjoying their own private pool, lounge and bar — a favourite with wedding and honeymoon couples. There are also 40 chalet-style standard and superior rooms, which all have a balcony or terrace looking straight out to sea.
The exquisite Hibiscus Restaurant, with its lofty vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, is open all day for a wide variety of delicious Creole and international menus, and its delightful atmosphere is enhanced with evening musical entertainments. The hotel has two gorgeous pools, one of them built in the shape of the coco de mer palm nut that only grows on Praslin, and a stunning spa that literally hangs out over the sea, so that the only sound you hear is the lapping of the waves somewhere below. There is also a private jetty, a particularly romantic spot for sipping a cocktail, or enjoying a dinner for two as the sun goes down.
A special location for weddings at the Coco de Mer is the Sunset Pavilion, at the end of the jetty looking out over the sea — a private and tranquil place to exchange your vows. For guests at the Black Parrot Suites, an alternative spot is the pool terrace under a palm-thatched gazebo. There is a choice of three wedding themes — traditional, tropical or ocean.
