A truly lovely stay at Indian Ocean Lodge. Such a pleasant welcome on arrival, followed by kind, courteous, helpful and pleasant service from the hotel's staff and management, throughout our stay. We stayed in room number 19 which was beautifully presented on our arrival and well kept by the service staff throughout. Beautiful room with lovely decor, allowing for a... More

My family and myself booked into Indian Ocean lodge for 3 days over the weekend. We felt insect bites all night long and to our surprise we had big bites and lumps the next morning all over our bodies. We reported it to the management, and the cleaning girl was sent to spray doom all over the bed sheets!! As... 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

This Hotel was fabulous - great location, room was 5 yards from the beach (see photo) and what a fabulous beach. Very good food & nice pool - great to sit out at night & watch the 'light show' in terms of lightening, as obviously with it being a tropical climate there were regular storms out at sea. Staff excellent... More

We enjoyed our stay at Indian Ocean Lodge, but wouldn't suggest it for long stays or for couples on honeymoon, not because of service or quality, but perhaps more for romance and luxury factor? The manager went out of her way to make us feel at home. Dinner was buffet style, and lots of Creole style food - so be... More

This place is gorgeous! It feels like a family-run business and as a consequence you feel incredibly included when you stay here. The manager is very friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate our party of 7 guests. My ground floor room smelled slightly of damp and I had a few ants sharing the room with me but it didn't...
