If I could afford to visit here once a year, I would. This place truly offers heaven on earth. The staff cannot be faulted, the location cannot be faulted. Everywhere you look you feel like you're looking at a post card. The food was excellent, accommodation is excellent. Waking up to the sound of the sea and walking directly out... More

Our bungalow was right on the ocean with a large porch where you could relax outside and enjoy the sound of the ocean. The pool was great to do laps and sit and have lunch.

This was a beautiful place to stay very relaxing, fantastic food, friendly staff great lodges. Whale watching in something everyone should see. We have been to quite a few place on holiday and this is one of the best. If you go to the Island this is the place to stay.

We stayed here for a week during our honeymoon for a bit of relaxation before touring some of the national parks. It's the perfect place to flop and is in a really beautiful spot - our lodge (Charette) looked out over the Indian Ocean, which was stunning when the sun was setting in the evening.

We stayed elsewhere on the island but decided to visit Princesse Bora for a day spa. It was very reasonably priced (circa 40GBP for 3 hours, including massage, scrub and soak), and the staff were exceptional. They were professional throughout and all the services offered were of a very high standard. The soak baths, in a pirogue with their own... More
