During our honeymoon in the Seychelles, we dined at Le Domaine de l'Orangerie. The location is superb - excellent sea views. The service was impeccable and the food tasted wonderful. It was a great way to end the day!!!!

We were sailing in Seychelles, had stop over in La Digue for 2 nights, spent a day in this beautiful resort just for a dose of pampering and luxury, before heading back to the sea, and what a great decision. We had booked the couple room for their tailored made signature massage. Such a unique experience... and forget about the massage ( that was excellent as well), the setting, the setting, the setting.......absolutely breath taking, very high on the cliff over looking the pictureous Indian ocean with green coastal area and the white sandy beaches, was the massage room with no wall in front, open to the heaven. You were receiving massage and all you would hear was the singing of the birds in the surrounding jungles and waves on the beach while the breeze from the ocean was blowing softly against your skin.
It really was an wholesome experience...and on the way out we received a gift package; massage oil and dried herbal mix bath, Price was reasonable,

We were on honeymoon and the place were not prepared to give us the dream experience. A misunderstanding by the booking agent were handled very in a very uprofessionel Way. We stayed in a the second to Best villa Called villa charme de elegance which was very Nice but also expensive and with no ocean view as expected.

Dear Traveler,

We thank you for your message and for your contribution, despite your stay at Le Domaine apparently did not fully meet your expectations.

We would be glad to be in touch with you again by phone or e-mail to collect more details in regards to the issue encountered, which seems to be an isolated case. Our contact details can be found on our official hotel webpage, please feel free to contact us.

On another hand, please let us precise that villas at Le Domaine are proposed with a view on tropical surroundings only. Some villas, a bit higher on the hill, benefit from part view on the ocean, however no supplement will be asked for villas high on hilltop. The hotel will refrain confirming specific villa numbers as well as seaviews in advance, as these depend on availability. Villas can be confirmed according to their category only.

We do hope that you could enjoy the rest of your stay in Seychelles, as well as the beauty and the authenticity of La Digue island in general.

We wish you a nice day and look forward to an opportunity to welcome you at another time,

Kind regards,

Philippe CORNAILLE Resident Manager, on behalf of
Stephane BURKHALTER General Manager

We spent part of our honeymoon in the hotel in June, we had a villa de charme. I had read a number of reviews in advance, and I was curious to see how my impressions would match what I had read.
It's hands down one of the most beautiful places I've stayed in. The spacious villa de charme with its outdoor shower/bath facilities was very beautiful, and I recommend anyone to get a villa further high up on the incline, because you're literally in the jungle. The golf cart service to take you to and from the (very beautiful and well-kept) main area is very efficient and we used it all the time.The food's great. The buffet was part of our package, and even though I am not at all a friend of buffets, this was one I really really liked: big variety, extremely tasty, very clean. The wine list was surprisingly good and not too expensive. We also had a romantic tete-a-tete dinner in the small pavillon situated next to the pool, which is an absolute must. Note to the hotel: why don't you advertise this more. The spa is phenomenal, the view alone is worth the (reasonable) bill. Finally, the staff. To both of us, the staff, notably Joy, made all the difference. Any special wishes we had were accomodated. We even had a small medical (dental) emergency, which was sorted out in no time.

Unlike a number of bigger, more developed islands, La Digue is little more than a village and a half with a local touch to it that you will simply not find on Mahé or even Praslin. It's a wild island with lots of untouched nature and phenomenal beaches to discover. So if you're going to La Digue, you're going local. And that's pretty much the case for the hotel as well. It is situated amidst this small community (everybody literally knows everybody), while providing an extremely high level of comfort and quality given the infrastructure around you. That comes with a few little concessions, such as Wifi quality not being brilliant (not that I really need much connectivity on my honeymoon...). But that's not the hotel's fault, that's just La Digue. A small note here to the hotel: it seems that Apple devices such as the Iphone and the Ipad have particular issues with the Wifi login - something to look into. I personally don't really care about my bicycle looking brand new or used. And there's a good reason for returning it by 18.30: it's dark at 19.00 in the Seychelles, so unless you want to do night cycling, I'm not sure why you would use a bike after 7pm anyway.

If you're looking for a Four Seasons-type experience, then don't even think about going to La Digue. If you're looking for a high quality hotel in a beautiful setting that's mostly unspoilt by mass tourism, I strongly recommend this hotel.

One advice to the hotel: I know revenue management is a tough business. Still, try to not go down the road of lower cost packages via big travel companies. Not that I saw much of "that type" of tourist, but I could somewhat sense it happening here and there.

Room Tip: Take at least a Villa de Charme, the higher up the better.

Villa de charme, in the forest was fantastic! We had exquisite views from our deck! Birdwatching was excellent! The outside bathroom was just the best idea ever! The buggy service was very prompt though a bit scary at times chasing down the hill! I also agree that the villas are a bit dark inside although the many light options exist, it remains very dark! The hotel dining areas are absolutely wonderful on the sea as well as the pool area, you cannot find better than this! Food was a bit disappointing though! Buffet breakfast, lacking in really good, fresh fruit! Restaurant as well, extremely expensive for sub standard food! The hotel gives bicycles but they are not maintained well, which is a pity since it is the only real way to get around and explore the island. The staff were really not friendly at all except around the pool and bar area! Reception were quite sour most of the time, making you feel as if they are doing you a favor! The location here is everything, and that is not a small thing! Management should step up with the service and friendliness though, comparing it to other hotels on the other islands! La Digue is such a stunning little island and there is a lot to explore on the bicycle with also beautiful beaches!
