A tiny private island resort of the very highest order. The bungalows are immaculate, the bar and public areas superb. The dining is exceptional. The staff are without exception true professionals and permanently smiling an polite. The dive centre is enthusiastically run by Bakari. The island is almost self sufficent with nearly all the food from the fishing boat or... More

Well, where shall I start with Denis. Firstly, if you are looking for the 'picture postcard' honeymoon, Denis will tick every single one of your boxes. We were welcomed instantly by Beverley who looked after us for the whole time we were there. The staff in general were brilliant. John and his cleaning staff, Sandeep and Manoj behind the bar...

We have just arrived home from our Honeymoon and I already want to go back. We arrived here after spending a few days in Mahe, and we were not disappointed. What a beautiful, relaxing place this is. The deluxe beach villa was gorgeous. We stayed in Villa 20, which had a lovely cabana outside the villa on the sand, and... More

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

Dear Guest, We appreciate your feedback and thank you for your time in sharing your views. Seychelles consists of granitic and coralline islands. Coralline islands do not have any granitic formations, hence why you didn't see these boulders on Denis Island. We apologise that you had expected otherwise. Denis Island however offer fantastic snorkelling, diving and the hotel is reputed... 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
