We have stayed at forest lodge with Stephen and Anya several times, and choosing forest lodge as our accommodation for our family for our special trip was an obvious one.
Stephen and Anya always make us feel so at home, and take time to do all the little things that make our visits memorable.
We can’t wait to return.

We have been to many B&B around the world, and a few in Seychelles, this to say that it was a great experience at Forest Lodge.

It is well maintained, on the side of the crowded areas, actually easier if you have a car than walking but Stephen can arrange many things for you (car rental, airport/boat pick-up, laundry, etc).

Always very helpful with this clean and tidy place. Just just need to be willing to be a bit off the beach and beaten track. You will be next to the forest and a few minutes from the beach.

Wonderful experience for us!

The lodge is small, with just 4 or 5 rooms. It is very clean throughout. My room was spacious, with double bed, two armchairs, a desk and chair and still plenty of room for suitcases. There was a small balcony. The kitchen area included microwave, a 2-ring stove, sink, plus cutlery, crockery and a few utensils - ok for a simple meal but not much more. The bathroom was clean and spacious. The lodge’s big drawback is its location: it is some way up a hill, about 1/2km back from the main road. It is a long and exhausting walk back, particularly in the heat and humidity! The owner, Stephen, was very helpful and speaks good English. He helped with car rental, directions, dinner bookings, etc. He does provide a continental breakfast but I did not use it, nor see others do so.

We stayed for a week at Forest Lodge and loved it. If you are looking for a beach resort, this is the wrong place, but if you seek a tranquil place to stay, Forest Lodge makes a great base to explore Mahe. If your stay is short, you really need a car to see the rest of the island, but if you have time, the bus to Victoria runs twice an hour from the nearby stop and from there buses run all over Mahe.

Forest Lodge is situated up a lane on the hillside overlooking Bel Ombre, where fruit bats fly above in the forest and beautiful birds inhabit the garden. Our room was large and spotlessly clean, we had a small kitchen which saved a fortune as eating out in the Seychelles is not cheap. The balcony was a lovely place to eat, relax in the shade and hang out washing to dry. Stephen communicated well by email before the trip, picked us up from the airport and dropped us off at the ferry when we left.

I have no hesitation in recommending Forest Lodge.

It was a nice experience overall and Stephen was really helpful all the time. Room with entire facility was just mind blowing. Mr. Sohail was so kind during my stay. In future if I happen to go back in Seychelles, definately, I will stay there. Forest Lodge is the place where genuine care and comfort of the guest is equally valued. Worth visiting.
