Made more enchanting for those of us whom make the trip from the U.S. this island is a long way away. It is worth the hours on the plane. Greeted by the staff at the runway that begins and ends at the waters edge is the beginning of a welcoming and beautiful island resort. They cannot do this in the...

I am so excited that we are going back to Desroches Island. We went last year and absolutely fell in love with the Island, the resort, the villa and the staff. Every aspect of our stay was absolutely perfect. The natural beauty of Desroches Island was extraordinary. What is most amazing is that the managers/designers of Desroches Island Resort recognized...

Excited children, even more excited parents! We spent just over a week in the closets that I have ever come to paradise. Just amazing. We keep looking at the 3000 pictures + that we took to make sure that it wasn't a dream. The staff were brilliant, nothing was to much trouble. Just an amazing time a way and one...

My husband and I stayed seven nights on this most beautiful island in July. We were met at Mahe by Patrick, the manager of the resort and from then on we were embraced by the Desroches "family". Every member of the staff worked hard to make sure that our experience of the island was special and one that would stay...

From the moment of stepping off the plane at Desroche I felt absolutely spoilt. The island has such a beautiful character (untouched and natural escape), the resort provided original luxury including top class meals and impeccable staff. The 5 days my partner and I spent at Deroche were a true taste of heaven. The island is full of activities to...

Desroches Island is idyllic and a wonderful Honeymoon destination. Expectations were high when we arrived in our 8 seater plane having just spent a few days at the amazing Four Seasons in Mahe but we were not disappointed. After arrival we were whisked off the plane and driven straight to our beach retreat villa with plunge pool and open air...

This was our first stay of three hotels in the Seychelles Desroches, Raffles Praslin and Ephelia Resort on Mahe. It did not dissappoint. I wanted a real Robinson Crusoe feel and it was exactly that. We stayed in a pool villa and we biked around the island most days, had lunch/dinner at the main restaurant and relaxed at our villa...

Together with some friends we have just returned from an amazing week on Desroches. Whilst expensive getting there (fly to Mahe, spend that night in a B&B) and fly the next afternoon in a smallish plane (20 seater) to a very special island in the middle of the Indian Ocean (40 mins flight) it's really worth it. The Villa's are...

We recently went to Desroches on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! The staff was helpful, food was delicious and setting was simply spectacular.
