I stayed at Villa Dorado for 9 nights including Christmas and New Year's Eve 2012. I couldn't choose a better place!!!
The villa appealed to me over any of the fancy resorts around Mahe Island and it had everything what I was looking for.
The villa is perfectly located - just few steps from the beach, very specious, comfortably furnished, clean & tidy with all facilities you need. I stayed in the top floor room with stunning sea views.
The grounds surrounding the villa are beautiful and very well maintained.
This is the perfect place for nature lovers - wild & tranquil beach, colourful birds and if you are lucky you can witness turtles lying their eggs ( I was lucky, unforgettable experience!!!)
Every morning I sneaked out onto the beach to catch the sunrise and have a peaceful walk - how different from busy mornings in London.
After a walk I was ready for my delicious,fruity breakfast.Home made papaya jam is top notch!!! Scrambled eggs with avocado - yummy, coffee with a hint of sea breeze so awakening.
The villa is located in the perfect spot but not isolated. There are 2 bus stops nearby from you can go South-West or North for only 5 SR per ride. It's a bargain and so much fun!
The heart of the villa is Zack - the manager. He made me feel very welcome from the start, always polite & kind, always happy to give any information on where to visit. The best host you could imagine.
Zack cooked for us delicious Russian meal on New Year's Eve, we all had so much fun and stepped up into 2013 with big smiles on our faces.
Seychelles are a world away in so many ways but I felt completely at home in this beautiful villa with its dedicated & fantastic staff. Zack, Martha & Vanessa - thank you once more for making my holiday so special and memorable. Missing you guys so much!!!
