Desroches Island Resort

Desroches Island Resort


... is remotely located some 230km to the WSW of Mahe in the Seychelles.

This beautiful island measures around 5.5km by 750 metres wide and is covered in lush tropical forest, surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches and fringed by outstanding coral reefs.

The resort is relatively upmarket, although quite heavily built for somewhere so naturally beautiful, it is certainly a long way from the zero footprint approach we are so used to elsewhere in Africa.

It is also a surprisingly large facility. The 20 original Junior Suites are pleasant enough tin roof bungalows, but the 28 new four bedroom Houses, although pretty stylish, now take the total guest capacity to well over 250 people.

Desroches Island Resort really is something of a conundrum. In low season it is certainly able to deliver a genuine sense of remote tranquillity, but when the occupancy levels rise during high season it inherently struggles to maintain the levels of isolation that one would hope for in such an utterly remote location.
