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!
This place gets rave reviews, and I’m afraid I just have to agree.
The service is excellent, the food is excellent and the island is interesting. Our villa was large, well appointed, with an excellent infinity pool. You get a golf buggy for your personal transport. It is cleaned and charged overnight.
When you arrive you’ll be met by Management and your Personal Assistant. I would urge to really make use of your PA, because they will make your stay memorable. For example they will arrange for you to have breakfast in the Tree House, or dinner in the Library or whatever. As for the food itself, if you don’t see it on the menu, just ask: they will probably be able to provide it, they will certainly try to prepare it the way you want.
House wines and local beer are complimentary (you have a wine cooler in your room which is replenished daily). The house wines were very drinkable indeed, but if you want finer wines they are available to buy.
Most reviewers have not mentioned the network of trails on the island. If you have the time, they are certainly worth exploring – there are trail maps in your room directory. The trails are not difficult, but they can be rocky, so do not attempt to do them in flip-flops: you will get hurt. You can ask your Personal Assistant to photocopy the trail map that you want to take with you on the walk.
If you only have time to do one trail, I’d suggest Mont Signal. To do the whole walk, drive your buggy to one end of the trail and let your PA know where it is. The PA will get your buggy and leave at the other end of the trail, so it’ll be there waiting for you. Perfect.
