We stayed here for our first 4 days in the Seychelles.
We booked a garden room, but were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to a hillside villa de Charme. This was a very well received gesture, as these rooms were amazing. The show / bathroom are outside, have a very large bedroom, and a large outdoor balcony looking down the lush green hillside towards the sea in the distance. The rooms are walkable from the reception / pool area, but they also have golf carts to take you back and forth with minimal wait. The buggy can also pick you up from the ferry jetty which is about 1km away.
The reception and rooms are on one side of the small road with the pool, bar and restaurants on the other side. Note that the road is a single track brick blocked road, frequented by pretty much bicycles and oxes only.
Breakfast is served on the sand floored buffet restaurant. This was the only minor issue I had with the hotel, as the food was often warm (not hot) and often the trays were empty. Yes, I have to admit this is the only thing I could pick fault with the hotel!
Lunch is available at the a la carte restaurant on the decking near the pool, and dinner is served in either restaurant. Both had a good selection, were made with quality ingredients, and the accompanying drinks selection was of a high standard.
The Pool area is very Zen like and was fabulous to sit around, however, the hotel provides free bikes for hire, so it is very much worth taking a towel, a bottle of water and cycling around the island. Anse D'Seargents is about 10 mins slow cycle away. In the other direction there are plenty of secluded beaches to spend the day at.
Free wifi was available near to reception and in the pool area.
Overall, fabulous room, excellent service, and a place to wind down and relax. Definetely THE place to stay in La Digue. Would love to return.
