This fabulously located hillside retreat has stunning panoramic views across the sea and local islands. We have never been to a place where you can touch the freindliness of the warm family who run the Calypha which mirrors the islands people hospitality and nature. The food is impeccably local and includes a wide variety of fish. As a take it or leave it fish eater I am now a convert to the exoctic flavours and cooking style of the Seychelloi and Creole people and recommend the grilled captain fish. Beaches are in abundance and only a short bus ride away. The lawrence family will advise you of only the best places to go including those hidden beach coves with electric blue waters surrounded by pearl white sandy beaches and coconut palms. The rooms are excellent value for money with those excellent views from the balconies that you won't find from a traditional beach resort. For those of you who remember the days of Miss World take a trip to the Hotel that held it some years ago and walk down the sweeping staircase that the contestants walked during the competition. Watch out for the giant tortoises that eat along the side of the lane leading upto the Calypha a spectacular sight in itself. Also discover how the Island ticks at night with advice as to what you can do from the Hotel owners who can direct you to some truly memorable nigths out and one of the Islands premier nightclubs with dancing late on until the early morning. I fully recommend the Calypha and all it has to offer as a magical way of enjoying paradise. You don't need a 5 Star resort when the Calypha offers everything and more from a fraction of the cost elsewhere. I will certainly be going again......!
