We chose Desroches as it offered 'Bone fishing' for my husband and a relaxing get-away-from-it-all spa experience for me. The service, food, pool and island were wonderful - very good idea to make everything included except special wine and special spirits and it made the Mini Bar a new pleasure! It was a very expensive holiday but not having to... More

This Island is an unspoilt paradise, we had suite 11 eleven, its next to the bar and restaurant. I requested that it was as my wife had an operation ten days before we travelled. The room is adequate and totally in keeping with the Island. It has two bathrooms, and an outside shower and bath tub which is marvellous. A... More

Although we have returned home tired and disappointed following our holiday, we have attempted a balanced review, as the island itself absolutely lived up to and exceeded our expectations. Room Beach suite: Small for this price bracket – just enough room to walk around the bed, 2 seater settee & a wicker chair. Large console table that serves as dressing... More

Returned to Desroches in March.... It was our 3rd holiday there and better than ever... The rooms are superb and filled with little extras that made it so special, lovely body lotions and shower gels, flowers and wine.. The island looks more beautiful than ever thanks to Monica..... manicured in places but still with the atmosphere of a tropical island.... More

I recently spent a week on Desroches Island and was hugely impressed with both the hotel and villa rental options on offer. From the delicious food to the incredible spa (complete with an ayurvedic specialist), the complimentary yoga and bikes - to the sumptuous beach suites and the pristine beaches - it's much more than just an island getaway. Great... More

The resort was excellent. Its certainly worth upgrading to a Beach Retreat from a Suite. While the accommodation in the Suite was acceptable, the Beach Retreat compared very well with the best accommodation we have had in the tropics. I am often a bit sceptical about ‘all inclusive’ deals as, in my experience, the quality and generosity of the food... More

My husband and I spent a week on Desroches during our honeymoon. It was simply amazing and we will definitely be coming back. We had a beach villa which was great. The beaches are amazing. Food was also good.

To whom it may concern, If I had to find fault in this holiday it would simply be that it is not close enough to the uk for regular enough visits! The islands location is breathtaking, the staff unseen in the back ground but at graciously at hand whenever needed, the food was spot and accommodation was amazing (exactly as... More

The property is really exclusive - the 35 mins trip by plane from Mahe gives you the feeling that you are heading to 'another world'. However, having been to many 6 star hotels and resorts, I will definitely say that the team is too young and inexperienced. Beware, you may be 'chucked out' of the hotel at relatively short notice...

Most visitors to the Seychelles islands stay on the main islands of Mahé, Praslin or La Digue. But the smaller islands have often more attractions to offer, certainly if you are looking for privacy and superb service. Deroches Island Resort is the only hotel on the Desroches Island, some 35 minutes by plane from the main island of Mahé. Flights... More
