There are few places you can go where you can walk around the entire coast of the island without seeing a single soul! the Island is 3 1/2 miles long and narrow and has amazing, empty beaches except for the hermit crabs, crabs and sea turtles. My husband and I went to Desroches on our honeymoon. It was perfect for... More

Our flight out to Desroches Island was very good, we picked our day well as we were the only passengers on the flight, private jet we thought! Excellent start. When we landed we were greeted by Bernie, a very welcoming host who doubled up as our wedding planner! As we were getting married during our trip we had a tour... More

Stayed on our honeymoon here in June 2012 and absolutely nothing disappointed. For reference, I have stayed at the Ritz Battery Park in NYC, the Sofitel in Chicago, as well as numerous 4-5 star hotels in Europe. Now, let's be honest here---this property is not cheap---it is in the middle of the Indian Ocean after all, but it is worth... More

From the moment that nine of us and a baby arrived at Desroches in June this year to celebrate my sister getting married on the island we all felt instantly relaxed. I believe this is because the staff who greeted us from the plane gave us a very warm welcome, with drinks and lunch waiting for us. The rooms were... More

Yati & her culinary team make this a great place ..... however, the Management staff let the team down .... with their arrogance - they are always right & do not know how to follow through what they have said or apologise & their friends & colleagues are higher priority than the paying guests. The diving set up is well... More

Hi FlyingChef2011, I am deeply sadden to see this comment regarding your holiday at Desroches in November 2011 and I believe we have been in contact with your Tour Operator regarding your holiday late last year. I can confirm all tennis equipment has been replenished and is of the highest quality. I am also very sorry to read you didn't... More

The hotel left a very good impression. Thanks to the cook and the whole team in the kitchen. In this isolated place product quality and the menu was simply wonderful. Service throughout was high. We are engaged in diving. It may not be a complete delight, but a very good site. Visibility was not the best, but otherwise a very... More

I didn't plan to stay in Desroches at all when I first planned my Seychelles with my friends, so I did merely a 3 night side trip to Desroches, and I regret not having spent more nights here, cuz this is definitely the highlight and best hotel on my trip. I stayed in a Beach Suite, the room is comfy,... More

It was a great time to stay there. We really enjoyed our vacations. Everything was fantastic: the ocean, nature, turtles and tortoises, food, water activities etc. We had a trip to St.Joseph island and we saw mantas and many fish and turtles. It was really great like never before. We visited many islands, but this was the greatest. Also I... More

A holiday of a lifetime! I just can't believe that we were there. We enjoyed it so much we couldn't bear to leave and extended our stay from 8 nights to 13 and it still wasn't long enough!

Stayed for 2 days in April. The standard rooms were delightful, obviously had been refurbished quite recently, and were spacious and fresh and attractive. The mocktail/cocktail, the tray of hand-made sweets and the prepared fruit were much appreciated. A day-bed with mosquito net for napping on one's verandah was great but we could have done with two of them. The... More
