Just off this beach is an enormous reef known as 'The Aquarium', rich in sea life, all at easy snorkeling depth.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


Located on Desroches Island, with 14 km of beautiful beaches, and surrounding reefs offering superb diving, with 14 classified sites, and impressive fishing. The comfort of this unique resort guarantees a high level of exclusivity in a small world of its own. The Desroches Island Lodge is also known as the most romantic hotel of the Seychelles, and this is not without good reason.

Pros: Very private--Prince William and Kate stayed here once, in fact. You're about 200 miles from the main islands of the Seychelles, which means you're not going to run into a lot of other tourists. If you're at a dive spot, and you see another diver, it's a guarantee that they hopped off the same boat you did :-). Fantastic service from the staff, who all knew our names, what we liked in our coffee, and what we'd planned to do the day before by day 2 here. They're all really paying attention, and it shows. The bungalows are separated enough that it feels like you have your own section of beach in front of yours, and each villa comes with bicycles you can tour the island with (look for the giant tortoises!). The beach at the Aquarium is absolutely stunning; the scuba diving is probably the best I've experienced anywhere in the world.

Cons: You've got the extra plane ticket to get here from the main islands of the Seychelles, but really, once you're here, we found the room rates pretty reasonable, all things considered.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Good place to visit. Great atmosphere. Serene place to visit for everyone. Enjoyed relaxing on the beaches and water pools. On reaching the place, one gets a useful briefing at the arrival center. Visited many beautiful places around the world but what is really very different in this resort is the staff. Incredible friendly and supportive in a very natural way, they learned my name fairly quickly, do the check in a few steps from the landing area in a very nice lobby and go directly to your villa by buggy. The accommodations are huge and very nice decorated, with your private pool, cabana, garden and ocean view. Great staff, food and drinks. The beach which was no more than 15 metres from the front of the bungalow was picture perfect - hard to believe but it actually looked better than the pictures. The snorkelling is amazing-saw turtles and rays. The staff of the island put alot of time and energy into gardening and carring the nature and the animals, the result of this hard work you recognize in every moment you are on the island. From staff greeting you on the runway upon landing with smiles and drinks, to chefs coming out to introduce themselves during meals, to landscapers greeting everyone who passed by, everyone made us feel special. Many thanks to the whole staff for making us an unforgetable stay.
