5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

I stayed at Lemongrass for 9 weeks and it will be unforgettable. It was an amazing place and so peaceful and quiet. The staff knows you by name and treat you so well, unlike many hotels I have been too. The apartment was extremely comfortable and had an amazing view. The creole dinners are fantastic, Ms. Lindy makes amazing chili, certainly ask her to make you some if you stay at Lemongrass. It is very close to Beau Vallon, with the choice of either a very quiet beach or to relax and enjoy time with other tourists, both are very close to the property. There are many fruit trees in the spacious garden. Great for families, honeymooners, and just friends. Anyone who wants to be well taken care of ought to come here. Shops are walking distance, and Victoria is about 10 minutes in car, very close. I plan to come back to Seychelles one day and will come back to Lemongrass Lodge!

Hello to all! I'd like to share the magic of holiday experiences in the Seychelles in August 2011. Seychelles were a paradise on earth, such as in our dreams! Pure water, perfect climate and wonderful plants! Besides fantastic nature and excellent climate separately would like to tell you about a wonderful hostess guesthouse "Lemongrass" - Cecile. This amazing woman greeted us like family, in her apartments always perfect cleanliness, friendly staff, the service at the highest level and with the environment very familial. My husband and I delighted in the ratio "price - quality." For little money we've just got a great service and wonderful attitude. In addition'd like to add - to me there was trouble, I got a few days in hospital, and we had to stay in the Seychelles for a while and change tickets. And our wonderful Cecil did not take with us a penny for the few days that we were forced to stay! Cecil said that now we are her guests, not customers ... The guesthouse "Lemongrass" beautiful furnishings, home comfort, cleanliness and quiet, everything is made for guests to truly rest, relax and feel great! Staff is not intrusive, if you prefer you cook and breakfast, lunch and dinner. But if you prefer to cook for yourself - at your service have a kitchen equipped with everything necessary. In general, my husband is delighted and we are going to come to our hospitable hostess again.Already with the kids! Thank you, dear Cecile! Sincerely, Natalia and Oleg, Russia, Saint Petersburg

After great und professional communication with Cecile we arrived Mahe Airport on September 20th ... Transfer was organized by Lemongrass Lodge without any complications ... Cecile offered us Beach House for the beginning two days in order to get familar with the Island and the facilities/diving base at Beau Vallon beach. After two nights we got picked-up by friendly and good humoured Paul who brought us up to Lemongrass Lodge ... we had a really nice and loveley equiped appartment with a small terrace surrounded by trees and flowers ... green colours everywhere !!! The maids soon took care of all our wishes and needs - having always a smile on their face which came straight from the heart .... Lodge is bookable with or without breakfast and on arrival we got the option to also ask for dinner which is done by amazing Creole-Mum Jenna - we always felt so fine and finished after here fantastic and pure meals.
As earlier said - the way up is a little hard, but really no argument not to chose this location as u will be rewarded on arriving the lodge .... u can see the ocean down the from the terrace on having breakfast - Wake-Up call is usually done by the local cocks - during the day u almost heer nothing but the birds and the wind - no noise coming from the street - at night u just feel like beeing next to the milky way and all the stars. We defenitely both agreed, that this won't be our last trip to the Seychelles AND to the Lemongrass Lodge. Besides the location itself it were the people that made our holiday one of the best ever - all they do feels like coming from the heart - so charming, friendly and helpful on everything.
Cecile helped us to organize our trip to La Digue, including transfer from and to the ferry port - she even picked-us up in the evening herself and took us back to the Lodge - also we did not ask her to !!! unbelieveable !!!! And - she informed us about a shuttle which will be available soon, bringing up the guests to Lemongrasse Lodge three or four times in the evening -- so in the end - there'll be nothing to complain at all ..... thank u so much for great experiences at Mahe.....

It's sad to see, or to hear, that some people are not able to appreciate the calm and the large logde appartement offered by Cecile and her Charmant team!!!
If you are looking for the rest of your Soul, if you want to combine the Calm within you and your Spirit, there is no other Best Place in Seychelles than Lemon Grass talking about quality and Price. Would you like to contemplate the dark Sky and the Stars at Night? Would you enjoy, being wake up in the Morning and listen to Birds singing for you. So the only one adress on Mahé is Lemon Grass, that I've been in the Seychelles twice now, and I'm planing to go back there very soon again. If you are a fun of pure Nature, do notice this adress.
It's true that Lemon Grass is a little bit up, but it is also an occasion for you to lose some weights to walk up to your lovely lodge! I did it two time, and believe me you'll enjoy it! If you are not a fun of walking you can also rent a car, and Cecile will provide even the Best Car rent Price in Seychelles for you.
Going on holiday means discovering new things, we human we appreciate differently things. Lemon Grass is where you meet the true nature without being far away from the Beach!
I've been there for 4 days from 05.10.11 til 08.10.11 and I really do enjoy my Stay.

Stayed in the Lemongrass Lodge for a week in September with husband and son. Should have been in the Beach House but due to a mix up only one troom was booked for us. Cecile booked us into the newly opened Lemongrass Lodge. Had 2 spacious and comfortable rooms with AC. Cecile was very helpful giving us a hire car because of the mix up, which was great as the road to the Lodge from the beach is very steep, not good after a large meal!
Lovely view from the decked area in front and very peaceful. Just the sunset over the sea and loads of bats flying past. Nice breakfast on the balcony above and probably the best value evening meal in the Seychelles, cooked by a lovely lady who did her best to make sure we were happy with the food. And we were! All the staff were very pleasant and we would recommend it.
Only downside,the slog up the hill if you have no car, but probably OK if 20 years younger.

My friends and I (4 adults) went to Lemongrass Lodge for 1 week from 26th Sept to 3th Oct 2011.
We had a lot of problems with our location. The lodge is just 600 meters from the sea but the street is very awful and dangerous for the gradient!! During that week nobody clear our rooms and every time we had to call the lemongrass's staff to ask to bring as a towels and bethroom paper. The safety box is not have a combination just a poor key and there were ants everywere!!!! The manager of lemograss asked us money when we had just arrived and she want only EURO!! No creit cards or local money. That manager wanted we had to pay the trasport from the airport to the lodge forgetting that it was include in the price!!
Every night we used to goto Victoria but when we came back to the lodge there wasn't a lights to show us where our appartment was.
Food was not good and very poor (we had a dinner there just for one night!!!).
Please don't go there!!!
