La Digue Island Lodge
The largest hotel on the eponymous island, the long-established La Digue Island Lodge enjoys an enviable location on beautiful Anse Reunion beach, protected by a fringing reef which provides safe bathing for families. There is a large a la carte restaurant where delicious creole and seafood dishes are offered, and there is also a poolside restaurant for lighter meals and buffets. Facilities include a lounge bar, large swimming pool, games room, boutique, bicycle hire, water sports and a diving centre offering various boat excursions to exciting Inner Island scuba sites.
Accommodation is split between very basic standard rooms, A-frame wooden chalets and a premium white washed beach house with superior rooms. The majority of the rooms are in the traditional wooden thatched-roof Plantation Chalets set within the tropical gardens a short walk from the white sand beach. Each is light and airy, with rather dated décor and simple furnishings such as a desk and seating. The chalet rooms are equipped with international direct dial telephones and satellite TV. They also have gallery bedrooms for children (accessed by a step ladder) and offer a balcony or terrace with superb sea or garden views to enjoy
La Digue Island Lodge provides a range of excursions including diving and snorkelling boat trips, and guided visits to the Verve Reserve to see the rare black paradise flycatcher (although it’s just as easy to visit it yourself). Bicycles are also available to hire for independent exploration. The lovely Anse Source d’Argent, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches is nearby and well worth a visit (there is a small fee to pay to cross a private estate to get there).
La Digue island is very relaxed and undeveloped, retaining much of its authentic Seychellois charm from days gone by.

Snorkelling, diving, boat trips, water sports and guided tours.
Ask about boat excursions to The Sisters or Marie Anne Island, small satellite islands to La Digue. The Lodge retains a very Seychellois feel, having been operating for over 40 years. It can seem a bit old fashioned and could do with some modernisation, but does have one of the best locations on the island.
