Denis is very exclusive; it has only 25 cottages on an island 350 acres large. The food and service is excellent, and the staff make you feel totally at home. Denis is also a nature reserve, having successfully introduced 3 endangered bird species to the island ( Brush warbler from cousin island, Magpie Robin from Fregate island and Paradise flycatcher...

As a Seychelles holiday I would not recommend Denis island. First, my dream/image of the Seychelles has these beautiful granite rocks which Denis does not have and is therefore just another tropical island. Second, this is no family holiday location. It is geared towards adults even if they say otherwise. Third, the cost/benefit is not there as this is no... More

Beautiful place to come & live out the deserted island fantasy. After a thirty minute flight from Mahe airport, you arrive into this grassy runway at the airport. Then picked up in a golf cart to the main lodge where you are welcomed with sashimi of the morning's catch (not your usual hotel snack...I devoured it! ) then golf carted... More

We spent our honeymoon on Denis Island in June, and had just the most wonderful time. Being totally honest, after having spent a couple of nights in a previous luxury resort, our first impressions of our beach chalet was that we were a little disappointed. I mean,the accommodation is REALLY lovely, with the outdoor bathroom, day bed, spa bed, and... More

We spent a week on the island in May and really enjoyed our stay. Our beach villa was excellent, well furnished with a wonderful "outside" bathroom. If you can forget the lack of technology in your room you wont be disappointed. It really felt like you had your own private beach and the area around the villa was superbly well... More

This place is something special. We were lucky enough to get Villa 30, which is the best one. It is enormous, with a huge bed, lovely seating area, fantastic outside bathroom (although we did get a bit spooked at night using the outside loo!), beautiful outside terrace and spa treatment pavilion, and, best of all, OUR OWN PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL!...

Denis Island is the first hotel we've ever returned to, having gone there in 2012. In April this year we stayed for 8 nights, which felt longer such is the relaxation on this island. It was good to have familiarity with the beautiful surroundings while also seeing what had changed. Our Beach Cottage (chalet 4) on the main beach was... More

Oh wow oh wow! Clive, my husband & I have just been to Paradise for10 days! Wonderful wonderful holiday with everything just perfect. With our arrival into Mahe, then the transfer down the road to the "Mason's" departure terminal without any delay so good.

We spent 5 nights on Denis Private Island at the end of our honeymoon and had such a fantastic time. From start to finish we were spoilt with the most beautiful views, incredible food and wine and outstanding service. The accommodation itself (we were in a Deluxe Beach Cottage) is beautiful, with an amazing outdoor bathroom, our own private porch,... More

If you are reading about Denis Island, you know what it is. The island has a very devoted following of return visitors. During our March 2015 stay we met couples that had been returning for 15 and 20 years. So, why were we disappointed with a place that has such a following and outstanding Trip Advisor reviews? Guests were cliquish,... More
