We had the buffet here and the food was divine! Beautiful view, the staff seem very courteous and friendly, and it overall looks like it would be a nice hotel to stay at. The adjoining beach seems to be so so.

Hotel is around 3Km from the airport and 5Km from the jetty and has the advantage of being close to both. The hotel directly resides on the Grand' Anse beach. Its one of the calmest beaches around the area and is absolutely clean and white. The rooms are spacious and warm. With your own personal outdoor seating area. Most of... More

The rooms were a great size with all amenities required. The pool and jacuzzi were a good size surrounded by a lovely decking right on the edge of the beach! The staff were friendly and welcoming and more than happy to help out with anything. Food served was also of a very high standard and all round a fantastic stay!... More

We stayed for 7 days at Indian Ocean Lodge. We did arrive seasick from the jetty (from Mahe) around noon and just fell asleep for the rest of the day. So our start was basically the dinner, which was amazing. We had dinner every night and would recommend it to everyone. Everything from self service buffet, bbq night, creole night,... More

We did not have to wait very long before receiving an well informed chat regarding the facilities whilst being walked to our room. Our room was beautifully made up and... More

We didn't stay here but stopped at the restaurant for lunch. The restaurant staff were surly and unhelpful. We were treated like a nuisance and waited ages for both service and drinks. The waitress even made us move tables to one that was already set up because she was too lazy to put cutlery and glasses on the table of... More

I live on Praslin Island where this hotel is located. I haven't stayed over yet but I spent a lot of my weekends in this hotel with friends. The location is good; in the proximity of shops, take-aways, and Breeze Garden bar. The infrastructure is good and the rooms are very comfortable, so my friends say. The food is good... More
