Carana Beach Hotel is a boutique property set on a beautiful white sandy beach on Mahe. Enjoy a heavenly island experience as you stay in one of 40 chalets overlooking the gorgeous blue ocean framed by lush gardens. Ocean-themed decor and traditional architecture go hand in hand with modern luxury at this stylish, contemporary hotel. Some chalets even come with private plunge pools for an added touch of luxury. Laze in unique cabanas with direct access to the white sand or walk into the azure ocean for a lazy lap on a balmy afternoon. Cool off afterwards in the outdoor swimming pool while enjoying your cocktail from the bar. Savor delicious food inspired by and cooked from produce grown in the hotel’s own farm.
Carana Beach was a great hotel by all means - and we appreciated that it was relatively small compared to other resorts on Mahe. It's a newer hotel, so it has some operational issues to fix, and for 6 nights the food becomes a bit repetitive. The great thing about its remote location is also the downfall. Because it is nestled on the north side you are relatively stuck there unless you have a car, and because it's small if you like to be active you get bored quickly. They don't offer any water sports equipment (paddle board, kayak, snorkel etc) and thus it can get boring to just sit out all day. That said the beach was beautiful, the rooms were beautiful, and it can be very idyllic. We'd recommend renting a car for a day as we did - which allowed us to travel Mahe and explore and find private beaches and smaller villages. You can drive the whole island in one day!...Read More
