5 years ago, I spent a fantastic week over Christmas at the Desroche Island in Seychelles. At the time the lodge at Desroche was the most luxurious accommodations in the country whose patrons were primarily fly fishermen and divers. In fact I had such a great time that as I started contemplating returning to Seychelles I enthusiastically contacted the owner...

Alphonse island is the most beautiful place, it s like heaven on earth, the staff are outstanding, the food is brilliant. The lunch out on the atoll is unbelievable. You get around the island on a bicycle, it is one of the best diving and fishing, and salt water fly fishing places in the world, we just loved it

Alphonse Island and the resort is one of the most special places that I have visited. The resort with its complement of young staff is luxurious, the meals outstanding, the sashimi cut from freshly caught fish the best you can have. Then there is the fishing: both on fly and conventional. The variety of species was astounding, the professionalism of...

Hi Chris, What a week, thank you for your review. A big thank you to you who definitely provided the lions share of tuna sashimi on your deep blue kitchen run. However your catch and release species topped with a Sailfish was outstanding. We look forward to seeing you on Alphonse Island again even if we have to wait for...

A third visit to Alphonse has to show that we love the place. The newly refurbished rooms are delightful and there is a lot more activity for the non-fishing guests. Annerlie runs a lovely spa and every day there are outings or expeditions which you can join. The Christmas week was very busy with lots of families on the island...

Hi Maureen, thank you for this lovely review. As we move further into the leisure market our options for the non fishing guests are growing all the time. As we say "Our luxury is in the experience" Hopefully a fourth visit soon.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Escape to the exquisite simplicity of a tropical island paradise; experience the raw beauty of an untouched natural sanctuary in the far reaches of the Indian Ocean, leaving behind the impositions of everyday life. The Alphonse group of atolls are considered as one of of the most pristine, untouched edens of the world, making it a nature lover's paradise. The magnificent island threesome comprising of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier lies in the very heart of the Indian Ocean as part of the Seychelles outer island group. Seven degrees South of the Equator and 400 kilometers South-West of Mahe, it is blessed with one of the world's healthiest climates, and miles of unblemished shorelines, lagoons and sea flats. HOTEL: Alphonse Island features a single exclusive resort comprising beach bungalows and villas built alongside the waters edge, each with spectacular ocean views. The 'Le Lys' central dining and bar area allows guests to socialize alongside the sparkling pool and shoreline, with cuisine offering the very best of traditional Creole creations inspired by the sensuous island atmosphere. Fresh produce farmed on the island and freshly caught fish are always on the menu, but diversity is key, including Asian inspired dishes and sensational sashimi, complimented by a wine list of distinctive variety. Freedom of movement around the island on foot or bicycle permits self-discovery of the wonders of this special place. Alphonse Island is a refuge for people looking for an authentic but comfortable island experience. FLY FISHING: Considered a fly anglers paradise, the expansive sea flats surrounding the atolls of Alphonse and St Francois provide the fly fishing experience of a lifetime. This spectacular wilderness has ten thousand acres of white sand flats, which provide easy wading and world class site fishing. The atolls are home to incredibly large populations of Bonefish, 3 different types of Triggerfish, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Permit, Parrotfish, 8 species of Trevally (including the Giant Trevally), and the incomparable Milkfish. This diversity gives anglers the opportunity to target a myriad of different species during their stay. The St Francois fishery caters for just 12 fly anglers at a time to maintain exclusivity and sustainability. To ensure guests the ultimate fishing experience, an international team of knowledgeable guides and qualified managers are on hand to share their passion for this unique fishery and its environment. Anglers are transferred for the short run from Alphonse to St Francois lagoon by the 40' mother ship to where the skiffs are kept anchored. The fishing is very much tide dependent so the prevailing conditions will dictate which species you will focus on. You are then able to access the vast expanse of flats, lagoons, channels and reefs which spoil anglers in the choice of environment and species for which they would like to hunt. The accommodation at Alphonse is amongst some of the most comfortable you will encounter at any fly fishing destination in the world. GAME FISHING: The un-spoilt waters of Alphonse and St Francois Atolls are home to the most incredible variety of blue water fish species, translating into a great destination for offshore fishing. The structure and sheer drop-offs are ideal for attracting a variety of pelagic species that can be caught on fly as well as conventional trawling methods. Fish like Sailfish, Wahoo, Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado can be challenged on any given day. Anglers can choose to either spend a half or full day targeting some of the hard fighting fish on offer. Due to our conservation minded policies, no conventional angling is permitted next to or on the reef that surrounds our majestic paradise, which helps preserve its unique abundance. ... more   less
