Hi Rohit,

The trip was amazing, and so was Seychelles. We both liked the place a lot and have already decided to go back there again, this time with more time in hand

The arrangements were perfect, except for the long waiting time before we could board the boat to Labriz. Even then Labriz staff arranged for us to roam around in Mahe island in the spare time. So I have no complains.

Both the hotels were great, in terms of room, service, food, location.

We liked Lemuria a lot. Suite was excellent with perfect ambiance for honeymoon couple. Breakfast was good. They had few good veggie choices in there menu. They arranged a special Chinese vegetarian meal for both of us which I think was really good. Golf field was excellent, and so was the 1 hour golf training that we took. There were many small insects (ants) in the room. We never got chance to complain about that to the management so they lived all the time with us. After going to Labriz I figured that these insects are very common to find in hotel rooms.

My wife was a bit scared at Labriz because of its cut-off from world feel. She said the place reminds her of movie, The Hostel. But otherwise, room was great (though not as good as Lemuria). Apart from the small ants, we also spotted few lizards which hotel staff took care of. Service, staff was again top class. Food was ok, but again Lemuria was much better. They prepared special Indian vegetarian food for us which wasn't all that great. Even I can cook better then that if I try :). Pizzeria was the best option here for veggies. The bar was excellent at this place. We really liked its ambiance. Did not get a chance to use the spa as it was fully booked by the time we tried to get a booking.

As for the island, I really liked Praslin. I think my wife would think the same. I think Praslin (and Lemuria resort) was secluded enough for couples like us. And it was really-really beautiful place. We did not go out much in Silhouette so I can not compare. But Praslin as everything I would want from such a vacation: great beaches, natural beauty, small villages with shops to take back souvenirs, option to hop to nearby islands for exploration.

One thing I did not like about Seychelles was the closing time of shops. It seems local people are extremely lazy. All the shops used to get closed by 6:30-7 pm in Praslin. Even gas-station was closed by 8:30. It was worse in Mahe (unexpectedly). Shops (for souvenirs) got closed by 4-4:30 pm. We were stuck because of this at-least couple of times. Also, it is not easy to get everything here. Not even on Mahe. We had to roam around the whole Praslin island to find a few things, which finally we realized we will not be able to find on the island.

I think staying in two places when on such a short trip is not a great idea overall. If I had to re-plan my trip, I would stay at Lemuria Praslin for 5-6 days, and stopover in Mahe before I fly back home.

Still it was a great trip. And I would like to thank you for all your help in planning and booking the trip. I will definitely keep in touch for any bookings in future
