We arrived in the Seychelles first, our luggage some hours later. This had nothing to do with the resort, this was due to our transfer. However the staff at the resort were second to none in keeping us updated, and when our luggage did arrive, it was greeted by staff and 2 grateful guests with near celebrations. The pick up from the airport upon arrival was efficient, the boat ride from Mahe to the Cerf Islands was a great experience, 2 young man ensured safe boarding and disembarking! Once at the resort the staff had already been advised our luggage had been delayed. Sandria escorted us to the reception area that overlooks the Indian Ocean, there she explained the layout of the Resort, times breakfast, lunch, dinner etc. We had the option to be driven by Club Car to the helipad, which we did. I would recommend as you will see a panoramic view of the beautiful picturesque Seychelles. Then we went to our Villa. 4 poster queen size bed. Which looks out on to a veranda, which views the Ocean, and the trees. The bathroom consists of a huge bath, shower and toilet, the bathroom is roofless. There is plenty of clothing space in the big wardrobes and there is a safe, TV, DVD player. There is a small library to borrow DVDs. Voltage is 220v. On the resort is the reception, dinning, 2 pools, beautiful sandy beach. The Villas are placed up the hill. You would need to be fairly fit to walk up, but you can ask for the Club car to take you up and down from your Villa. There are trips you can take to other islands we did the Moyenne Island visit, a British report brought this Island and brought in the giant tortoise which inhabit the Island. Well worth a visit, but you will need to be fit to trek, it's very hilly. Also a boat will take you to the Island there is no dock you have to get off into the Ocean and obviously the same going back, be warned if you have a camera or valuables you won't want to lose them! Food is fabulous, al a carte. My favorite waitress is Juliette, she makes you feel special, shows an interest in how you are enjoying your stay. Beware of the birds, who will want to join you for breakfast! During dinner there is a reprieve (they're asleep!). Due to the Cerf being an island there is a constant breeze which is lovely. Oh the spa massage, wonderful this was complimentary! I personally highly recommend this tranquil and peaceful place to come and recharge, relax and have fun.
