CaranaBeach embodies a completely new category of boutique accommodation, reflecting the genuine, unprocessed character of the Seychelles. The hotel’s 40 chalets overlook one of Mahe’s most dramatically picturesque beaches, the hotel has been designed to accentuate the wild nature of this unique location with the view from every room spilling out onto striking blue seas. Modern twists on island architecture, contemporary ocean-themed décor and a home-grown culture of genuine Seychelles hospitality, feed into a casual yet chic ambiance for guests to dine, unwind and recharge.
The chalets accentuate the wild, dramatic landscape on which the hotel is built, with hushed greys and soft earth tones of the interiors providing a stark but soothing contrast to the view that spills out onto the entire bay, with fluorescent blues and greens of the sea, the lush hillside and a white-sand beach framed by granite pillars.
Each chalet boasts modern comforts with elegantly rustic touches inspired by the sea. The hotel features 28 Ocean View Chalets with a comfortable terrace, and 12 Ocean View Pool Chalets with a private plunge pool and additional deck space on the terrace.
A fun, creative approach to both casual and semi-formal dining has inspired an imaginative culinary experience, for guests to enjoy at their own pace and leisure. Refined international cuisine mingles with frequent touches of Creole inspiration, along with a consistent focus on freshness and locality.
Named after the uninterrupted ocean panorama seen from its elevated perch, Lorizon, which means “horizon” in Creole, is open daily for breakfast from 7:00-10:00 and for dinner from 7:30- 9:30. An ideal setting to enjoy a spectacular view paired with equally refined cuisine for a traditional, elegant dinner
