“Paradise found!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

We spent a week here after getting married. After the chaos of the wedding Denis private Island was perfect. Pure relax time with friendly staff, great food and lovely guests too. It was a real paradise island.

We visited Denis Island for our honeymoon in June 2012 and words can't describe what an amazing time we had!

The adventure starts when you begin the 30 minute flight from Mahe and as soon as you get near to the island, you start to realise just how much like paradise Denis Island is!

Our Beach Front Spa Cottage was absolutely amazing, it was really spacious, the bed was really comfy and the bathroom facilities were wonderful. The room was cleaned to perfection everyday by a lovely and friendly man. The room was topped up with water in the fridge twice a day - would have been good if the fridge could have had some other drinks included in it (part of the all inclusive) as anything you had in the room was an extra cost but other than that we had no complaints at all.

The staff were absolutely brilliant, nothing is too much trouble, everyone is so friendly and helpful. Kris was a fantastic barman - just so attentive and lovely Jyoti and Sanjay looked after us everyday. The food was some of the best we have ever eaten, so much choice, so fresh and a good selection every day. The chef will cook your eggs however you want them every morning. There is always fresh fish cooked to order for lunch, with an array of interesting salads and curries and lots of local creole food to try. The sushi night was great and the other themed evenings were of the highest quality as well.

There is no risk of mosquito's around the hotel and room, but if you do venture off for a walk accross the island, put on some repellent, as our legs were eaten alive!

This was the perfect honeymoon, a trip of a lifetime and i would thoroughly encourage you to experience the paradise that is Denis. We hope to go back some day soon - it was worth every penny!!

It was all fantastic, The staff, weather, rooms all idyllic. The diving, swimming & boating was great too. The giant turtle awsome & birds a delight.

The only slight cloud was that although all inclusive, we had to pay extra for any drinks in chalets, yet if we wondered 40 paces along beach to bar we could have tried to drink it dry BUT who wants that on their honeymoon & relaxed peaceful holiday?
Even if they limited it to a few beers & sodas a day?

Room Tip: Not a fitness or spa but walk round the isle or dive in the clearest of blue water. Dance the night...

Denis Island is a must when visiting the Seychelles, sure is heaven on earth. The half hour flight from Mahe to Denis is amazing and great experience. The place is so beautiful and unique. The food was so delicious and lots to choose from, the homemade ice-cream you'll die for..... Love it there and can't wait to go back again.....

Maldives used to be my favourite destination but Seychelles is winning by far. It is real paradise!
A short stay on Denis is a must for any visit to Seychelles. There is just something magical about it!
From the amazing flight across where you can see all the little Islands below, the nature reserve where you can see rare birds to the beautiful bungalows where you feel as though you are the only people on the island. The bungalow s are very good standard and are equipped with everything you need. The open air bathroom is lovely and had a proper bath.
Although the island is pretty big there's Ares only a few villas, so it is very quiet and relaxing.
The food is excellent and they have their own farm on the island producing all the eggs, milk etc and home made jam.
The diving was amazing, saw so many things and the team at the dive centre are very helpful and make the whole experience very enjoyable.
I would recommend this island to everyone but especially to honeymoon couples who want magical memories!

Denis Island is a place like no other. Not that I know of at least. Much has been written in previous commentaries, and I agree with all the positive comments, so no need to repeat them. What I will say is that we spent some time on this island for our honeymoon, and we're sure to be back (many times, hopefully). It's hard to single out what makes this place so special, because everything is just phenomenal. A huge thank you to the staff. You've made our honeymoon unforgettable.
If there is one place that I can recommend hands down without any reservations, it's Denis. Just go and find out for yourself. I for my part cannot wait to be back.

Room Tip: Take a beachfront villa.

This beautiful pristine place is so unique and special with its azure blue sea and picture perfect beaches.. it was our 5th visit and still we want to go back. The chalets are very tastefully decorated and are very spacious and well equipped with an Ipod docking station, fridge, aircon, cofee making facilities and a brilliant bathroom with in and outside showers. The chalets all face the beach and are very private. The staff go out of their way to welcome you and make your stay memorable. On arrival we found the bed decorated with blossoms to wish my husband a happy birthday and he was also presented with a beautiful birthday cake at dinner. The food is exceptional with so many choices at each meal. Freshly baked pastries and bread at breakfast every day apart and also have a continental selection and full English breakfast fare. They have a different theme every evening from Creole Buffets to Beach Barbeque, Sushi nights Indian etc. There are a selection of desserts that were my downfall. We highly reccommend the all-inclusive package as we found it good value for money. Management, being Jean-Paul and Lorna make a point of chatting with you every day to make sure everything is perfect. In fact all the staff are exceptionally friendly and helpfull and give warm and personal service. There is no cell phone reception but you can make international calls from your chalet or use the lounge/library which has 2 computer stations with complimentary internet access. There is also a TV in the lounge and a selection of books.
We had brilliant snorkelling just off the point in front of the restaurant and we also cycled to Turtle Bay where we snorkelled with the turtles. The bird life is prolific and we manged to spot The Seychelles Magpie Robin, Fody Warbler and The Seychelles Paradise Flycatcher and our favourite the Fairy Terns. We cannot say enough about this amazing place. Just go! This is such a magical untouched paradise.

Room Tip: There are really are no bad rooms.
