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!

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

We have just returned to Cape Town after spending 5 days on Desroches Island-it was paradise! My husband and I stayed with our two young boys in one on the magnificent villa's. We had unique and the most memorable snorkelling experiences every day. The food was excellent. The staff were always friendly and helpful; and we were very grateful for... More

My wife and I enjoyed a second honeymoon at Desroches Island for 10 days at the beginning of July 2014 (with friends). The Lodge we stayed in was magnificent. The meals we enjoyed at the hotel were exceptional. The staff were attentive and friendly. The staff that serviced the Lodge were incredible. I enjoyed 3 outings deep sea fishing and... More

An amazing Holiday this time with my wife and young family in tow. The food was outstanding, the retreat sumptuous and staff spot on. The kids club was a great resource, themed restuarnt evenings gave character and fishing great. I would highly recommend the whole experience to all.

We have just come back from a wonderful holiday in the Seychelles! Desroche Island is a very special place. We are British currently living in Johannesburg so getting to the Seychelles was easy. 5 hours and you are there. However we landed around 730 in the evening which means an overnight stay in Mahe and then getting the flight to... More

Just returned for a month in Africa and a week in Seychelles, 4 of which were at Desroches Island. While we were surrounded by the natural beauty of the island, the hotel services were very poor. Food is very bland, the staff is not enthusiastic or helpful. Managment just comes to great you after you get off the plane, and... More

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
