Me and my husband spent wonderful holidays on La Digue on april 2013. 5 nights that will stay in my memory.
Going to Seychelles and particularly La Digue was always my husband's idea. And this time we came not for the hotel comfort but for new experience of the new destination. Of course there are some nice "real" hotels on La Digue, for the ones ready to pay up to $400-500 per night.
But I found Le Relax Beach House in internet by chance and price was correct, and photos were attractive. We made reservation directly with Mr. Mayur who turned out to be the Beach House manager (that was nice to see him personally after pages of e-mails exchanged during reservation process).
Le Relax Beach House La Digue is the one of several Le Relax properties in Seychelles (in Mahe, on Praslin, and 2 more soon to open on La Digue).
Le Relax we stayed in is A Beach House, with only 4 rooms, common Tv hall with canape, little bar and inside restaurant with wonderful outside ocean view terrace, on which we ate all our breakfasts and dnners! There is little garden with sunbeds and shower and direct access to beach.
Rooms are located upstairs the house and they have all needful comforts - air conditioning, tv, bathroom with spacious shower, basin and toilet. There is shampoo ang gel shower supply, but recommend taking or buying your own reserve as well. There is hair dryer in the room, where I used it as could not find plug in bathroom. Shortly saying - rooms are ok to sleep, to take shower, to prepare for long day, but would not consider them as place to stay during the day.
Each room has a balcony. One room is facing the ocean, two others are facing the garden of opposite house and fourth - overlooking the road.
Rooms are beeing cleaned every morning and nicely decorated with flowers.
Breakfast is served on terrace and is NOT a buffet. You receive little menu with choice of tea/coffee, orange juice, fruit plate, corn flakes with milk, toasts, eggs or omelette, cheese and bacon.
Dinner is a set menu with choice of starters (2 variants) , main course (2 variants), desserts ( 2 variants). Every day we had fish or meet choice.
Le Relax Beach House is located 5 min from boat jetty and just 15 minutes by foot (this is very close) to famouse and beautiful beach Sourse D'Argent. Beach towels are not placed in your room, but always at your disposal on request. Bikes are needful to visit around (highly recommended beaches - Grand Anse, Petite Anse, Anse Coco) and bikes can be also rented at the house upon request ( we paid 100 rupees per day per person).
Well, what I wanted to say - Le Relax Beach house is sure not a luxury hotel. One may be annoyed by its location between two local houses, may be annoyed by noise of cocks singing like crazy every morning at 05:30-06:00. One maybe will not like room overlooking the garden of the local neigbour house, one would complain about the poor food choice or room cleaness or service provided. The ones, who are looking just for hotel comfort, food, drinks and standartized services - would probably never be the house guests.
But we found different quality - we were guests of private villa on beach side with beautiful decor. We had great Team of 3 people who were taking care of us, cooking for us fresh food, serving us, relplying our questions, organizing excursions, bike rentals. Smiling and making jokes.
We were so happy to wake up every morning, to eat our liitle breakfast on terrace, to drink fresh coffee and to see our Dream Team - Mayur (house manager, reservation manager, host, receptionist and just great guy), to see our favorite smiling little Judith, who was serving us breakfast and dinner and later on was cleaning our room with care ans personal flower touch:) . We liked our food and fresh fish, and salad, and deserts that were made by the house cooker ( sorry I just can not remember his name).
This house was the part of our nature life on wonderful and wild La Digue, Le Relax Beach house was representing it no better. How could we ever pay attention to liitle ants in bathroom, or small breakfast? We took all as part of La Digue that accepted us with local hospitality.
Thanks a lot for wonderful time - La Relax beach house - Mayur and Judith and kitchen shef:)
We loved it all!
