La Digue Island Lodge
is located in the Seychelles
The Seychelles is a group of islands in the Indian Ocean around 2000km from the coast of Kenya. La Digue Island is situated 60km to the northeast of the international airport on Mahe.
Set on Anse Reunion beach, five minutes walk south of the main jetty, La Digue Island Lodge is a simple but reasonably pleasant mid-range guest-house.
The lodge is centred on a cluster of main buildings with bar, lounge and dining areas leading out to a swimming pool above the beach.
Guest accommodation is a remarkable 69 rooms, nine of which are in an authentic plantation house, the remainder being simple A-frame cottages.
Activities include swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, diving, snorkelling, island walks and mountain-biking. Day trips to other islands are also possible.
The main potential downsides at La Digue Island Lodge are the relatively high prices, the proximity of the town, the simpicity of the hotel, the very large number of rooms and the slight potential for adverse weather Nov/Apr.
