This was the last of our 4 Island holiday in the Seychelles. The hotel had great views, and our Superior room was excellent.The room staff were lovely, making our towels into different animals, with the added help of Hibiscus flowers. We enjoyed the restaurant, but were disappointed that on two mornings the wide choice of Buffet Breakfast was not available.... More

This review is a bit late as we visited in February 2015. This was our 2nd hotel in a 2 island stay in the Seychelles, our first few days having been spent on La Digue. We had a room on the lower hillside. The rooms are OK but nothing special although the view out through the palm trees to the... More

An amazing boutique hotel. We were given a spectacular room right on the beachfront. It was like a chalet with a beautiful veranda with chairs to watch sunsets on the bay. The rooms were very spacious (basic but clean). Bed was comfortable. There was a full size fridge to chill drinks. You could order drinks to be left in your... More

We had 5 nights here and it was too long. The hotel is very isolated and it is a long walk to the village. The resort is a bit tired and needs some money spent on it. The beach is great but the beds on the beach are terrible. The rooms are large but very dark with lots of storage.... More

We spend 5 nights here over The Easter holiday. The location is beautiful with its own private beach which is always quiet if you wish to have a relaxing day. Don't miss the other beaches on Praslin though as Anse Georgette and Anse Lazio are not to be missed. The reception staff are very helpful, my only criticism would be... More
