The first rule of marketing is “location, location, location” and this place has inherited the Garden of Eden! If you’re tired of the magazine air-brushed Maldives, or if French Polynesia is just too far, if you like a touch of luxury with your adventure, then this is the place for you.
-African jungle fauna that will overwhelm you... 5000+ tortoises (some of them 200 yr old), hundreds of thousand birds, large fruit bats, etc. etc. This place seems like a step-back to the Jurassic era
-amazing villas with more-than-amazing views
-some of the world’s most beautiful beaches where you will be the ONLY one on the beach!
-privacy!!! You’ll basically never see other guests or be bothered at all
-delicious and healthy food... freshly caught fish, 80% of fruits and vegetables (so fresh and delicious!) served are grown on the island, etc. you can eat well AND loose weight here
-great mix of relax and activity... they organize and propose things for you to do every day to make sure that you get to know the island, etc. you don’t have to call or organize anything... they think ahead and make it happen
-personalized service... they know your name, learn your preferences and habits, and tailor the service to match
-none really but the hotel could use an “update” in some cases (e.g., the gym)... there’s a little wear-and-tear that you might not expect at these prices but the management says they’re aware and will make future investments
We’d love to thank Edson and Angela (our assigned assistants), the management team including Wayne and Arta, all of the waitstaff in the restaurant (David, Ades, etc.) and housekeeping (Mimirose!). Kudos also to Richard who is fighting the “good fight” in terms of ecology and conservation.
We will definitely be back!
This place is perfect in every way. Our room was stunning. Loved our 1.4 meter private pool overlooking the turquoise sea. Our dedicated butler Edson was amazing. He was there for every need and always with a huge smile. Service in general was over the top. It felt like we were the only ones on the island.
The all-inclusive program was great. Tons of amazing food and great wine. The food is all grown on the island. Loved all the themed events. The plantation evening, featuring island history and creole food was terrific. Enjoyed hearing from the curator of the farm—great education about the fruits and uniques items he grows. Loved meeting the chef who clearly puts his heart and soul into every meal. A fun hike with the island’s environmentalist followed by a private breakfast up in their “treehouse” was fantastic! Had cocktails with the managing director at the beach, with all the amazing wildlife and hermit crabs. Our final dinner was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. Fresh tuna, Kobe beef, amazing vegetables—honestly, so good! All meals were made just for us because we have a daughter with many food allergies—thier chef handled it perfectly.
We all got spa treatments. Staff was so good and treatments excellent...unlike the average “hotel” massage. True professionals in a very calm, relaxed environment.
The diving and snorkeling was like none other. Literally millions of fish, rays, nurse and black tip sharks, turtles. The marina staff were fantastic. So good that we went out on the boat daily. Felt very safe with the snorkel and diving guides.
The environmental education was great too. 5000 Aldabra tortoises live on the island. We held several babies—magical. This island is very environmentally conscious—which we like a lot. This is a slice of heaven for sure. A value for what we got!
We will return in a heartbeat. Next time, we are staying longer!
