Second time already in Calou Guesthouse! Why I came back? You wont believe: the legendary dinners! Absolutely mindblowing buffet: quite small, but every dish, fish, salad is unforgettable. I remember that in 2010 I spent one night in the Barbaron hotel in Mahe. One suit costs 600 euros. They had a galaxy size buffet, dozens of choices, but not a... More

We booked at Calou last minute and were lucky to be accommodated as it is a popular place. We were provided with the apartment which was homely and spacious with a great terrace outside. The jungle is all around which freaked me about about due to a personal fear of insects. If you also share fear of insects i would... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in september 2012. The rooms are very nice. We got the Creole House all for the 2 of us, 52 steps to get up there (they will carry your suitcase up though), but what a great view of the forest, with a very nice terrace, big living room and kitchen. Breakfast was a nice typical... More

We had never been to the Seychelles and didnt know what to expect, but we neednt have worried at all. La Digue is just outstandingly beautiful and the Calou Guest House was a great place to stay, it is pretty central and easy to get to most of the amazing beaches. From the moment we arrived, Sophia and the rest... More

If we hadn’t had the experience of staying in one of Calou’s apartments for the first night of our stay, which I opted for against my better judgement as the bungalows were only available for four of our five night stay on La Digue and I didn’t want the hassle of moving hotels after one night – my overall impression...

We are from P.R.China and spent one night in Calou Guesthouse in La Digue. Everything is very nice and very enjoyable for our trip. Meanwhile, we have the very good impression on the hotel. It is our sincere hope that someday, we will go to Seychelles again and would like to enjoy the time in this wonderful hotel.

We've stayed in this place with my wife for 8 nights. It was our wedding's 5th anniversary so we decided to go to some remote place. La Digue island fits - it is small enough to be a countryside tropical garden paradise, and big enough to have a supermarket, places to dine out, etc so we did not feel we... More

Nice family atmosphere ... ideal for tea-total customers. We only had dinner because people we met were staying there. We were quoted €14 per person plus drinks. Food was very good for €14 and the atmosphere pleasant, but we ended up paying €80 for the two of us including drinks for our  then friends, €28 for meals €52 for drinks.... More

We just finished our first trip to the Seychelles. We had a short stay - 3 nights on La Digue at Calou Guesthouse. (Aftewards, we moved to Mahe and wished we had stayed longer at Calou). This place truly exceeded our expectations. We were greeted upon arrival (after 24 of travel and exhausted) by a friendly staff and a delicious... More
