Hotel Overview

Where

Perched at the edge of the Seychelles plateau, 60 miles northeast of the capital Mahé.

Rooms at Denis Island

The island’s villas and cottages all have a private beachfront area and sea facing verandah or private courtyard. The interiors are made with natural materials, and an inside-outside feel, with no televisions. All rooms have a telephone, ipod docking station, tea and coffee making facilities, wine chiller, mini fridge, air conditioning and bathroom.

Food and Facilities

For breakfast and lunch the hotel offers creative and extensive buffets with live cooking stations using ingredients fresh from the island’s estate and fished from the surrounding seas. In the evenings, there are Creole specialities, barbecues on the beach, or sushi and sashimi prepared from the day’s catch. For something more formal, you can opt for an elegantly presented five-course table d’hôte dinner in the dining room or around the pool deck.

Activities at Denis Island

Denis island is very proud of its conservation record and eager to show guests the island’s unique habitat. Resident experts can provide a bird feeding or nature tour, or give a presentation on the island’s history, wildlife or conservation projects. An atmospheric stroll will bring you to the old village with its craft workshops, farm and the giant tortoise colony. Equally, a jog around the island, a game of tennis, snooker or a chess challenge in the Library, canoeing around the island or sunset sortie into the lagoon is yours for the asking. The hotel can also organize excursions to neighbouring islands.
