The hotel is a beautiful, boutique oasis on a beach where the other places to stay are more package tour than luxury. The staff, from manager Rene down to the gardeners, are all so friendly, happy and helpful and the chef could hold his own in any top 5 star restaurant in the world. That is praise indeed from regular... More

We have only been back for three days but wish we were still there. If you want peace and tranquility with superb hospitality then look no further than here! Rene and his welcoming staff Jenty, Cristal and Vanessa made this stay something special and intimate in a way than larger corporate hotels find virtually impossible. It was a home from... More

We stayed at this hotel in the Colibri suite. The hotel is beautiful, only 10 rooms, so we got a lot of attention from the staff. The room and the bathroom are big and very nice decorated. The beach had a lot of seaweed because of the weather, but the hotel offered a free bus each day to a very... More

Superb hotel ideally located on the Island. Wonderful staff with Rene and Wilson being the stars. Very kind hearted and helpful. The food is very good and breakfast a delight. The rooms are a good size with nice views to the ocean. TV isn't ideal and could do with an on demand service installing for those lazy evening movies. Overall... More

We stayed 5 night in Oct..When I first booked the Seychelles, I booked Paradise Sun on the other side of the Island, but moved to Dhevatara because I thought the size, with 10 suites would suit us better..We are foodies, who like quiet.. On the side of the ocean the resort is on, we felt really isolated. The beach would... More

We were staying at the Black Parrot Suites part of Coco Der Mer, but the food was dreadful and we ate here a few times. The food is fantastic and I must say probably the best food we have had in the Seychelles, including Mahe. The standard is far superior to anything we ate.

We did not stay at this sweet boutique hotel, but we ate here and it's lovely. Designed as sort of a Balinese water garden, the ambiance and service is great and the chef has some interesting flavors and presentations up his or her sleeve. We had a lovely sunset dinner and even my 4 month old son seemed to be... More

Spent four nights here in March 2014. Half Board. The breakfast and dinners were superb. Beautifully presented and spectacular flavours. We would rate it as one of the best hotel restaurants we have encountered. Wine is pricey but this is true for Seychelles. The bed room was well laid out and nicely designed. Would have preferred Ocean View but as... More
