What we love
Arriving by light charter into Desroches keep an eye out of the window as you come into land and you will see the smiling faces of some of the island fantastic staff lined up and waiting to greet you.
Setting the scene
Unique in its size and shape Desroches Island is easily one of the most beautiful islands in the Seychelles. Perfectly enveloped by beautifully maintained exotic tropical greenery and sandy white beaches, the resort consists of just a handful of bungalows, villas and retreats dotted amongst the island. Privacy is of the utmost importance and guests can easily spend their holiday with only the surrounding sounds of nature and a good book as their companion! The feel of Desroches is laid back luxury but what really makes it special are the fantastic team of staff who are on hand to ensure your stay is memorable, and you leave wanting to return.
Desroches Island Resort has eighteen elegantly designed one-bedroom Beach Suites and twelve Luxury Beach retreats, just a few steps from the warm waters of the west-facing beach. Furnished in a barefoot-chic style with exceptional attention to detail using only the most natural materials inspired by the sea and island; each offers privacy with its own tropical garden and verandah. The nineteen deluxe three, four and five-bedroom Beach Villas are situated on the north-west facing beaches. Surrounded by lush greenery, complete with a kitchen, a butler, the use of bikes and kayaks and their own private pools, these beautiful modern villas are perfect for families and larger groups.
Desroches Island Resort offers a truly indulgent dining experience at the Terrace restaurant. Centrally located in the heart of the main resort space, with stunning views out over the Indian Ocean, it offers a subtle mix of internationally inspired dishes comprising of delicious fresh seafood and Creole cuisine. For a more relaxed option after a busy day exploring the island and the chance to feel the sand between your toes, why not enjoy a delightful lunch at the Beach Side Dining. Located right on the water's edge, the gentle breeze and warm island atmosphere will wash over you as you savour some of their culinary dishes. Afterwards, why not join the other guests at the L'Amirante Bar and sample some of the local exotic cocktails.
On Desroches Island Resort, you will never be short of things to do. Leisurely explore the island by bicycle (complimentary for all guests including children) - the chefs will even prepare a lunch picnic for you. There's also an air-conditioned gymnasium featuring all the latest equipment - watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean and the crystal clear waters while you get fit! Other water sports and activities available on the island include tennis (on two flood-lit courts), snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaks and pedalos. For some real excitement, the specialist water sports centre can arrange fishing excursions to try your hand at deep sea fishing for some marlin, sailfish or record breaking wahoos and tuna! To soothe away those tired muscles after a busy day, why not book in to the exhilarating Escape Spa and chose between their many traditional Asian massages and full body treatments. We utterly love this spa, (its one of our favorites in the Seychelles) and during our stay we had one of the best massages we have ever had!

Guests arrive into Desroches by private charter, connecting from Mahe International Airport. The flight is 45 minutes. Due to the size of the aircraft guests need to keep luggage to 15kg per person. Still whilst on Desroches all you will really need is your swimwear, a pair of flip flops and your sunglasses, so packing light should be a breeze!
