Listening to the waves crash from your bedroom
Acajou means Mahogany in french, and some of the rooms are gorgeously finished almost entirely of Mahogany.
The hotel combines two of the most attractive aspects of the Seychelles - tropical, green jungle and pristine clear water that is almost at bathtub temperature.
The two are celebrated throughout the resort, with beautiful hibiscus and frangipani trees lining the pathways and the palm fronds of the coconut trees casting shadows wherever the sun glints though.
The beach is never far away - wherever in the resort you may be coming from. There are fresh water taps spotted along the walkways for cleaning your sandy feet after running into the shimmering blue ocean just metres away.
Acajou Beach Resort is very eco-conscious and not only use solar power, but also use one of the latest pool cleaning techniques called Nu Pure which is Chlorine free! Happy days for us blondies!
The resort is set amongst a tropical garden oasis, and sits right on the edge of one of the best beaches on the island of Praslin. The water is warm, the sand is soft, the air is fresh and the atmosphere is tranquil.
There are 3 main types of accomodation at Acajou, not including the family rooms and their self catering apartments.
The best rooms are of course waterfront, with beautiful views over the ocean where the breeze will flow right through your room.

All rooms feature huge comfortable beds and bathrooms with all the usual amenities.
Balconies open up to the beautiful nature that surrounds this green eco-resort - and while the beach view is stunning to wake up to - the tropical Seychellois greenery is just as tranquil.
With two restaurants onsite, there's plenty to choose from. You can dine poolside, overlooking the ocean, or at the large al a carte restaurant for lunch and dinner.
The breakfast buffet includes a huge spread of tropical fruits, including avocado and freshly shelled coconut.
They also make the best octopus curry on the island.
The staff are very attentive with wide smiles, and always ready to assist.
Our rooms were beautifully made every day with fresh flowers to make us feel as though we were on our honeymoon the whole time.
Getting there by car is easiest and only takes 12 minutes from the ferry terminal, along a weaving road past cute little villages.
Alternatively, if you arrive from the airport, you'll cruise through incredible lush and brightly coloured tropical jungles for 23 minutes - hiring a car is best.
