After staying at some really good places during our month visit to the Seychelles, we thought we can't leave without visiting beautiful Takamaka beach. On arrival at Chez Batiste the notice board says "a rustic restaurant - half board - restaurant open 9am -10pm". On check in we had to pay up front (strange we thought) then we were told... More

Very romantic dining directly at the shore. Fresh fish, pizza, creole food; the price a bit upper level: 300 Rupies +15% charges for the menu of the day. You also will find draught beer there ! Take a bath in the ocean afterwards, but there are no fresh water showers available.

We booked Batista via a Travel Agency, who described it as a "well managed family hotel with a great restaurant". In the Lonely Planet there was already an indirect warning, that this place was spoiled by its location and success, but missed good service. It turned out to be true. The location is really amazing, Takamaka is indeed one of... More

We invited seychelles in low season, but it didn´t mind at all. There wasn´t so crowded. Awesome beach takamaka was almost for us. I booked the room through the site http://www.seychelles-last-minute.com/. I didn´t know the site but I read recommendation on tripadvisor, I was a little bit scared because a confirmation didn´t come just a request but wasn´t problem with... More

We chose to stay on Mahe for the 8 days of our honeymoon and deliberately chose a lower star hotel to stay in so that we could splash out in the second week. However, once we arrived we realised that lower stars did not mean lower quality. One arrival (after a 3 hour delay which meant we arrived in the... More

Such a lovely spot we drove in and asked if there were any free rooms. Nobody seemed to know or care or be able to find a key to show us one. Having wasted half an hour, we left and went to the Anse Soleil Resort. Lucky us, it was far less expensive, very much nicer and the people there... More

I booked into Chez Batista with a slightly worried look on my face, greeted at the reception by someone holding a young baby, the place itself quite 'rustic' I did wonder what the experience would be like.... The room I was gievn sat back from the main reception, but was large, clean and beautifully laid out, if a little disjointed... More

Got married here in 2008 after visiting in 2006 and 2007 (and then again in 2009 and 2010). Great restaurant (but a bit pricey) and Judith and the team are really friendly and with a well stocked bar (unusual for Seychelles) you can wind your afternoon and evening away with ease. Perfect sunsets and with great rooms at a reasonable... More
