A very friendly, family run hotel. All the staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone we met smiled and said hello, even if off duty. We were there during the momentous elections and benefited from the excitement and massive joy of a parliament overturned after 39 years - the staff couldn't contain their elation and we wouldn't have wanted it...

Enjoyed a really nice week, just at the time the national elections were ongoing, which made for an interesting time as well as numerous conversations, following a change in party after 39 years of the same one.....

Very small place. Cosy, nice and quiet if that is what you are looking for (we were). Rooms are nice, but worn and don`t expect repairs to be done during your stay. Breakfast very simple, but you can have any kind of fresh made eggs every day although food was not always warm when served. Lunch and dinner were simple... More

The most amazing place. The scenic views were amazing. The island of Cerf is beautiful. For a relaxing do nothing holiday this is ideal. Saying that if you what to explore there are trips available to the main island of Maha and surrounding islands. The food served by the hotel was also amazing with not a bad meal in two... More

Located on a small island ten minutes from Mahe (main island in Seychelles), this is a great getaway in paradise. Very friendly staff (felt like a lot more staff than guests during our stay) and spacious rooms with jaw dropping views. Restaurant is great with super fresh catch of the day as my favorite. The only improvements I can see... More

Where should I beginn. This hotel on this small quiet island has exceeded our expectations. We usually choose our hotels based on favorable location near coral reef, therefore we were planning to stay 8 days at the hotel, enjoy the reef in front of the hotel and visit one day Mahe, Victoria. But then after we arrived at L'Habitation there... More

We returned to L'Habitation for the second time in late June returning yesterday and were not disappointed. Once again we had the private Villa Hibiscus which is now like a second home with great views.

L'habitation is the perfect getaway. It is secluded; tucked away on one of Seychelles smaller islands. It offers a quiet, peaceful, relaxing atmosphere where you can rejuvenate and enjoy nature. I simply love this place; Whether to take time off work to relax or for a romantic holiday...It's is just perfect.

We visited L'Habitation for a week in April after being on Praslin for 6 days, and it was just brilliant. So beautiful, so laid-back, great snorkelling, great staff.

Always have some time here when we go to the Seychelles. Family run. Beautiful atmosphere and so easy to unwind. Comfortable bedrooms and a very nice open restaurant looking over toward Mahe. Nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to help with anything. Will always go there. Nothing more wonderful than sitting with a glass... More
