Everything is very clean and the food is very good. It is a haven of peace. Lovely views of Mahe opposite. A walk over to the other... More

My hubby and I were gifted with a weekend stay at L'habitation in 2011 (sorry long overdue review). All I can say is that a weekend is not enough to enjoy the tranquility and calmness of the place. Even though the island is just a 10-15 minutes boat ride away from Victoria, it feels so far because you don't hear... More

Me & My Girlfriend decided to take a break from our very Hectic lives and headed to this beautiful island hotel. The Hotel is lovely, romantic and peaceful, a stone throw away from the beaches.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks on our honeymoon. It is a lovely and quaint hotel, and overall just a magnificent place to stay. Management was very accommodating (thanks to Delta and Dominic). We landed at 7am and once we reached the hotel, we were shown to our room immediately. It was very nice to know our... More

What a wonderful experience. My wife and I had a great time in this beautiful island. The staff are very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The bar tender made awesome drinks (look for richard) and the food was incredible, especially if youre there during creole nights.
