My wife and I decided to spend the weekend at the L'habitation Hotel. Upon our stay, we were welcomed very nicely at the Reception and were shown to our Villa. The room is clean and lovely. You have a Cable TV, Kettle for Tea or Coffee in the room and a mini fridge. The breakfast and dinner were served buffet.

What a relaxing place to spend our last three nights in the Seychells. The staff are welcoming and very helpful, especially during the turbulent times that we visited. The pool is a good size and there are plenty of areas to sit and admire the view out to sea. Time really does pass you by quickly in this idyllic spot. Breakfast was a little limited but the evenings meals were very tasty! The rooms are ample size and have everything you need. Unfortunately the boat and snorkelling trips weren't available (understandably) due to the covid 19 situation at the time. However, the snorkelling off the shore was great by yourselves and there are kayaks available for free by the hotel. Overall, we would highly recommend this hotel, particularly if you enjoy snorkelling and relaxing!

Was totally blown away. I wasn't expecting such a place. Definitely romantic and totally relaxation central. The place is beautiful truly paradise. It is so peaceful and stressfree. The atmosphere is relaxed you don't feel the time passing. The food is better than many places on Mahe. I will definitely be coming back and I recommend 100%.

L'Habitation hotel my first impression was wow, especially when arriving at the jetty the welcoming staff give you such a warm welcome that you feel like your at your home. When just sitting at the reception seeing the pool and the sea at the same time it's just a breathtaking view that keep thinking is this reality or just a dream. After such a stunning view reaching the room was a wow view for my first impression and the styling was having a very distinct and unique look which gave a fresh view to the mind with the concept. When it come to the restaurant, the greeting given is amazing, when it comes to the food which is typical cuisine it shows the colours and culture just from the presentation of the menu and the taste is so juicy with the different taste of spices it is like exploring the culinary and culture of Seychelles in all its splendour. The great thing about L'Habitation is that sometimes feel like your in a five star hotel and because of the vibes and atmosphere it give you. The great thing is that it's a very affordable and a place to be when taking a holiday in Seychelles. It's a place you gel with the sea and nature and having a quiet place for a memorable holiday. Leaving L'Habitation is not the best feeling cause of the staff and atmosphere. It the best place to be. I recommend that you take a look and explore and experience the experience I have at L'Habitation. It's a 💯💯💯 to be!!!!

The L’habitation hotel is one of the best small hotels I have ever been to, Just a short boat ride away from Eden island and you are immersed into the beauty of Ile au Cerf where the tranquility of the small island is so peaceful that it feels like time has stopped. The hotel is family owned business and are backed by a dedicated staff that will ensure you will be leaving with memories to cherish. I have spent a long weekend with my fiancée and definitely we will be returning back for our next vacation. The rooms were very cozy and it was easy to settle in and warm up to the place. Highlight of my visit was spending time on the sandy white beaches, the sound of waves and birds in the background and the sun setting over the hills on Mahe island and enjoying a glass of the local Takamaka bay rum, I felt like I was in a dream, the Seychelles have really captured my heart, and the L’habitation is my fondest memory there. A big thank you to Dominique and the staff for a memorable time on the island, I wish you the best of luck and hopefully…see you soon
