My young sons & I had a wonderful week on this remote, conservation driven island. We spent our time snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, swimming, exploring the island on our bicycles and eating delicious food. Highlights were seeing turtles laying eggs on the beach, swimming with dolphins, turtles, rays etc. Fantastic, friendly service. The children went to kids club a few times... More

We stayed here in Nov 2013...a great resort, very good food, wonderfully peaceful and very comfortable rooms. Diving was excellent and general service was to a very high standard (except the bar staff who were too laid back...we had to go to them to get a drink not the other way around). Only things I'd caution are the beaches which,... More

We stayed in a Luxury Villa facing the ocean on our honeymoon. Desroches was unlike any hotel stay we’ve ever had. It’s a self-contained resort in in the middle of nowhere. On one end of the island, neatly separated from the rest of the island by an airstrip, is the hotel property– the main dining area, pool, hotel offices, tennis... More

we had a super week here after having "won" it in a Charity Raffle (Go Christina Noble!!). 250km from Mahe meant the connecting flight gave us a 9 hour wait in Mahe however at the airport we were able to get MAsons to recommend a great driver for the day, Konrad. After a 30 minute flight we landed at the... More

An amazing trip - which can be as adventurous or relaxing as you want to make it. We were so spoilt by staff - who made every effort to look after our every need.

We were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon on Desroches Island and were absolutely amazed by how perfect a holiday can be! 8 days certainly wasn't long enough! There is so much to do and see there and time flies incredibly fast. The island offers a totally remote get-away, with sunshine and warm temperatures guaranteed year-round. When we first arrived,...
