After being welcomed by management upon arrival we were escorted to our 4 bedroom villa. Equipped with an infinity pool, private garden and the beach only steps away, we knew... More

It is a 40 minute flight from Mahe and as soon as you land on the airstrip, which is a breathtaking experience in itself, you are welcomed by most of the senior management of the resort, including the GM and other...

Just spent 10 days on Desroches, 2nd year in a row. Our 3 children loved it even more. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, milk shakes, turtles more fishing ...we never stopped, only for the great food. If you get a chance - just go!

Dear Nigel S + Family Desroches fans, with sweet memories of milkshakes, “way to go!” and in so many ways a compliment appreciated, because a description of the famous ice cream shake almost “right up there” with a Desroches Island sunset in a glass, confirmed, yet a “Milkshake in Paradise” compliment across continents well respected.

Desroches provides a perfect blend of luxury, top quality service and fine food in an outstanding setting. The key to their success, in my view, is combining all of this in such a relaxed atmosphere and without pretense. We were very impressed with the way that each evening the setting for dinner was different. One evening, the dining room was... More
