Our stay was in June 2011. We had a very special time here. My husband surprised me for my birthday. As you fly to the island the views from the plane are breathtaking. On landing staff greet you with a very warm welcome. We were upgraded to a cottage on the beach, our own private beach. Couldn't fault the staff,... More

From the moment you land on this tiny piece of paradise you are welcomed by an incredible compliment of staff consisting of no fewer than 17 nationalities. To see them lined up and waving as you touch down makes you feel welcome before even stepping off the plane. It is right there that you leave your troubles behind with your... More

We stayed on Desroches in July, for five nights, as a part of our honeymoon (following a stay in Dubai and Mahe). The island is absolutely beautiful, and it is a true paradise. It is in the middle of nowhere, 40 min by a small plane from the main island Mahe. From the minute we landed we felt like in... More

We had the fortune to spend 5 nights at Desroches during our honeymoon. It is an island paradise. It is incredible to have such an unspoilt and natural island coupled with the luxury and level of service. There really isn't much on the island apart from the hotel itself, which is spread out across one side of the island. There... More

We spent three weeks in this wonderful island, the best holiday we have ever had. O.K. we just happen to adore pristine sandy beaches with hardly anyone around, roaring waves crashing onto coral reefs, snorkelling in a tropical sea full of colourful creatures, or strolling/cycling through miles of silent tropical forest. This place has it all. We arrived by small... More

We decided to have a relaxed honeymoon in a remote and secluded paradise, for which the best option we could find was Desroches island resort, and we were not disappointed.
