On arrival we were shown to one of the charming bungalows - all supposed to be enjoying private beach access - see photo below - the beach access had been eroded so badly that you could not access the beach without going through the garden of the neighbouring bungalow ... why did we come to Denis .... peace & privacy ! The resort was not full so why had they selected the worst villa on the island when we had paid deluxe beachfront. Four days later we walked that side of the island and they had installed a new set of steps to access the beach yet no one ever apologised to us!!!
After much complaining we were moved but with great resentment from the management staff - we were accused of not having booked what we had ... all very poor taste for what apart from that is a beautiful island with lovely chef & other staff ... just don't be there when the freebie tour operators are being invited since they herd the buffet like a swarm of locusts and have no qualms at pushing you aside ....and if you are keen on tennis bring your own bottles for water, (or pay the price) raquets & balls & only if you are an early riser!

Room Tip: if you like the sunset stay on the west side !

Thank you once again for a very relaxing stay on Denis Island, we had such a wonderful stay and the staff as always were attentive and kind. The all-inclusive option made it easier for my husband when checking out. The rooms were amaculate and the housekeeping excellent. The sushi evening was a real highlight for us along with the saga dancing. We also witnessed a wedding there which was very beautifully done. All in all another excellent stay.

Need to mention Seyexclusive for booking this again for us and for requesting the room, which we did get, thank you and also the the very kind attentive staff at the bar, the cocktails were strong and appreciated!!

Paradise at its best!

Room Tip: Not too close the the restaurant. All rooms are on the beach.

Located on a small island 1.8 km long Dennis, one of the 115 islands of the Seychelles archipelago, a 30-minute helicopter flight to the north of Mahe, the main island of Seychelles.
I think this is a stunning synthesis of natural beauty and exquisite simplicity of island life, nenarochitoy elegant hotel, hidden in a secluded corner of the Seychelles continental shelf, palm groves and white beaches make Denis Island Seychelles one of the most romantic places on earth, perfect for weddings and honeymoons .
Rooms are clean, large and quiet. Service unobtrusive.

Also located in the western part of the hotel's restaurant offers dishes of meat and fresh seafood, exotic salads, appetizers, desserts, a variety of drinks and fresh juices. Here, daily breakfast (buffet), 3 options for lunch buffet (salad table, table with hot dishes, including grilled meat and seafood, a table of desserts) and dinner 5 times a week and buffet under the stars air (do not miss it, very nice!), with dishes of Creole cuisine on Fridays and Saturdays. The bar offers juices, juice cocktails from tropical fruits, vintage wines, fine liqueurs, cognacs and cigars and a traditional afternoon tea.
NB! Mobile telephone service is unavailable, we had to make international calls at the reception.

Truly incredible.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon a. As close to 5* paradise as you will find.

The rooms are individual and very private villas, with your own ‘garden’ leading down to the beach, which is one continuous and unspoilt stretch of white sand wrapping the entire island. Snorkelling just off the beach is great – we even saw sea turtles.

The villa decor is modern with beautiful natural accessories together with all the mod cons including quiet air con, fridge and bose ipod dock.

The bathroom is open on one side into a court yard style garden, with a second outdoor shower. We also had a freestanding bath, plenty big enough for two. We came back from dinner one night to find the room-maid had run us a hot bath with frangipan oil and the place had been scattered with petals and candles – very romantic!

The food was great – with plenty to choose from. Much of the produce is grown on the island (including the pork and chicken!) and the chef will cook whatever he caught that day.

This is an exclusive 5* resort, so expect 5* prices. We thought it was worth every penny.

Beautiful – cannot recommend it highly enough.

We just came back from one of our best holidays on Denis island. What is it - a small, exclusive resort, situated on a comparatively big (approximately 1 X 2 kilometers) peace of land, covered with wild forest, in the middle of nowhere! No mobile phones, no in room tv, no internet - just white sand, emerald blue ocean, beautiful nature, cute birds and... whatever else you add to it.
Some of the best features of the resort: the Chef - Robert - is a miracle; all the staff are very professional and friendly; the food ingredients are from the local farm (which, because of the tasty, ecological products is itself a great feature of the island!!!), there are just a few other visitors - max 50, in our case, we were 20 guests in total), the chalets are all planned in such a way that you have your "private" yard and beach; the spa area in the chalets... The island - you can snorkel, dive, fish, walk or jog in the forest, enjoy a romantic sunset on a boat with a good glass of Champagne... surely I am missing something, but we enjoyed it all very much and we think it is worth the high price one pays to go there.

Room Tip: Chose a Spa Chalet - they are a bit more expensive, but at the beach and with more spacious "ga...

Went on a honeymoon to the Seychelles and stayed at 4 different resorts - all quite expensive and costing roughly the same. I would say that Denis Island had the leas value for money - it was very beautiful and gorgeous long beaches but it offered the least in terms of quality of food. Also on other islands for roughly the same price food and drinks (including alcoholic beverages) were included. At Denis island it was only food and this did not even include water. At the other resorts we also had private pools.

I know I am sounding negative - but it was really a wonderful stay, beautiful rooms, lovely outdoor bathrooms and a beautiful communal area with bar and pool table - but I do think it is overpriced for what it is offering.
