It's a beautiful island, with beautiful nature, but the hotel facilities need some improvement- the place looks "dusty" , the food options are very limited. The villas are very nice and spacious but to be honest I was disappointed of the beach- the main beach - where the water is very wavy -is almost dangerous to get in. If you... More

Everything is organised so as to keep the guests satisfied whilst maintaining and restoring the integrity of the island's wildlife and vegetation. On arrival, following a 15 minute helicopter transfer from Mahe, we were warmly greeted by... More
