We chose Desroches for part of our honeymoon as we wanted a "drop and flop" experience after the hectic celebrations of our wedding. Our travel from Chicago to get to Desroches was long, but well worth it! Upon arrival we received a short tour of the facilities and then to our private villa where fresh coconut water and snacks awaited... More

We stayed for 5 nights as the main part of our honeymoon and my only complaint is that we didn't book for longer. The staff were always on hand to make our stay as special as possible and were friendly and very helpful. My Husband and I both run our own companies so actually the lack of phone service or... More

All rooms (Beach Suite) have a direct access to the beach and the sea. The rooms aren't really spacious and show some tear and wear. Use the bikes to move around the island. It takes about a litte over a half hour to drive to the other end. The vegetation is lush, the area near the “lighthouse” is like a... More

Stayed only 1 night but from what I saw it was an amazing place. Just the right balance of quality and casual atmosphere, understated and with a sense of fun. The best food I have had in the Seychelles (my 3rd visit), stunning location, beautiful rooms, attentive and friendly staff, I will definitely be going back for a longer stay.

We just returned from a wonderfully relaxing two weeks on Desroches Island. Although and expensive holiday, the staff, relaxed but elegant design and beautifully maintained grounds made for a perfect holiday! From the moment we set foot off the plane and were greeted by the lovely Caroline, we felt this was going to be a special place. Our first rooms... More

We have just returned from an incredible 10 night stay on Desroches Island. We found the staff to be incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The standard of service, amenities and accommodation were excellent. Top chefs prepare a delicious four course menu every night to be enjoyed under the stars with your choice of island cocktail. The way the hotel and... More

We spent a week on Denis Island and a week on Desroches and whilst they are different islands in many ways we liked them both very much. We liked the contrast of small/large island and it made our holiday feel longer. The staff on Desroches were incredibly helpful, professional and enthusiastic. There are six of us, all divers, and my... More

We had the pleasure of spending 9 days fishing Desroches in April 2014. Aside from the fact that the Resort, the island, the staff and the fishing operations were beyond anything we have ever seen, the fishing was spectacular. Kyle, Stu, Fabio and Steph (our guides), as well as Brad who is the fishing manager put together an agenda based... More

Wonderful that it's all inclusive But only regret one restaurant and there was little information on what was going on. It was only when it came to the Wednesday, When their Easter celebrations began we got info . It took three days to get our snorkelling gear. Best take your own . Bearing in mind we only had six days... More

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
