Staying at the Shandrani - visit to Ile Deux Cocos?

We are going to stay at Shandrani Hotel at the end of October. Ile des Deux Cocos seems to be owned by the LUX Group, but is about 150m off the coast of the Shandrani such that you could easily sail or paddle over. Would it be worth doing so for a change of scenery and would LUX be happy if you just turned up?

Thanks in advance

TBH its a tiny little island you can walk round in ten minutes.

I last went before it was commercialized so cant say whats happened to it since then - we went over by local boat when we stayed at a friends viilla in Blue Bay directly opposite the island and we were the only two people on the deserted island.

Its sad to see its been commercialized - I would give it a miss.

Bet the lovely coral they had then has disappeared :(
