We had a super time at Le Domaine de l'Orangerie.
The décor is very much to do with Zen. However the large bowls of stones placed on the floor in the bedroom at the base of the bed wrecked your legs if you did not see them because of the low lighting. I agree with others that the lighting could be a little better to enable one to read etc.
I cannot fault the staff they were always very polite and helpful.
Yes the bikes are a bit cranky as on day 1 my pedal fell off and we found a friendly local to help fix it on the other side of the island. On day 2 my gears just did not work and by the time we arrived at our destination I just sank into the sea to recover!
We were b & b guests and found the breakfast to be excellent. We had the evening buffet on two occasions and felt that this was very overpriced for what was on offer. Not all of the dishes were as hot as they should be and the puddings were not kept very cold.
The pool is just for the most agile as the two steps to get in and out of the pool were very deep and perhaps if there had been three steps it would have been easier to use the pool especially for older people.
We had a great time on the island exploring and went to Praslin for a day and hired a car which was excellent.
Just one other comment, we had a Jacuzzi with our villa and the temperature was low so the staff changed it and then we could not se it as it was very hot and took a long time to cool down.
