The Domaine is the one resort on La Digue, which is classy yet remains accessible. No golf carts here, nothing posh about the clientele, lots of honeymooners though, especially from Italy. Charming decoration in the newly restored (or built?) standard garden villas, 4 units to each building. Each of them very spacious, modern design, but still exotic enough to fit the surroundings..i.e. lines of pebbles as "shower curtain". Lighting is neat, the one thing which may be disturbing is that there is no possibility to fully shade the big window next to the bed. There is even a mini fridge which allows you to cool your own stuff. The hill villas seem to be more "romantic", but we were quite happy with the modern architecture.
There was construction going on behind our garden villa at the time, which was noisy, but then again you spend the day at the beach anyway.
There are two restaurants, one buffet, one à la carte, which are rather pricy-and the buffet is even more expensive than the à la carte, which surprised us. There are other options to dine around the island, anything between home cooking at Anse Sévère with Thérèse or the Le Repaire with excellent Italian dining (and fabulous pizzas) in walking distance. Try the St. Cloud for dinner as well!
The bikes provided by the Domaine are slightly worn out, but do the job. The pool area is excellent when the tide is out and coral reef stretches directly before your feet-don't go in! Nearby beaches for snorkelling like Anse Patates are all well within reach by foot or bike.
Service is excellent, breakfast buffet, too. We recommend a guided walk with Robert to Anse Marron (for those who are fit and willing...): www.seychelles-tourguide.com
Fantastic snorkelling can be had on a boat trip to nearby Félicité/ Marianne/ Grande Soeur.
Try to stay for at least a week!!!
