the lodge allow you to experience nature! The staff encourages the guests to leave doors and indows open (which we did) to hear the sounds of the sea and the birds singing also at night. In the morning you can enjoy turtles walking in front of your room All is about nature! We also had a mouse saying hallo from... More

This is just a mini adventure from start to finish. We arrived in a little plane so the views were spectacular. The wild life was fascinating, so many birds! The lodge is very special, a real paradise. The cuisine was exquisite. A little gem.

Spent 10 days on the island - it served the purpose of being a quite beautiful spot to relax! You can walk around the island in less than 60 mins. Beaches re very clean and safe for swimming. No TV or Aircon - large fan does the trick though.. There is free wifi which really is a plus to keep... More

We went for 3 nights to be the highlight of our Seychelles trip and it didn't disappoint! Fabulous island - unbelievable number of birds that are fearless and come and sit around your veranda. Good food and drink in communal restaurant. Very friendly staff. Fabulous beaches and sea for swimming and snorkelling. A fabulous end to our holiday.

Bird island received some poor reviews over the past 18 months where it was claimed standards have slipped. We didn't go in 2014 for health reasons but made it back in October this year with some trepidation. However, our faith has been entirely restored. Sadly Marie France Savy, owner manager died recently and that had a very serious affect on... More

We started with an amazing flight in a Twin Otter plane landing on the grass runway. Robbie met us there and took us to reception where we were given our torch for room 11 near the restaurant. The room has a four poster bed with a mosquito net on it. There is a seating area as well as shower and... More

This is the only accommodation on the island and is excellent. The island is a unique experience with wonderful nature experiences - we saw a turtle come ashore and lay her eggs. The lodge restaurant and lobby is open plan and spacious, bright and airy. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable. They are similar to many lodges in Africa and... More

No air con, no spa, no TV, no pool - just a wonderful island to visit if you love nature. The bungalows are comfortable, clean and airy, and the fan within the mosquito netting helps keep you cool at night. You are provided with a torch to get to the bar and dining area in the evening and a thermos... More

Had a fantastic visit to Bird Island! The flight in was breathtaking followed a warming welcome from the staff. The rooms were spacious and basic but had everything required when visiting as the island itself was amazing and time spent in the rooms was only in the evenings. One issue was the bugs at night however it's easily avoidable by... More
