“Relaxing, Peaceful and Rejuvenating.”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

My Fiancee and I took a break from our busy schedules and headed to this amazing island getaway after it was highly recommended by one of my cousins.

A short boat trip from the main island, the Hotel itself is tranquil and welcoming, the beach a short walk away from your room, however we spent a lot of the time by the pool which is great as well. From the moment you arrive on the island the first thing you notice is the great service from the staff, helping with the bags and smiling it doesn't matter if you are local or from abroad you are treated like a welcome guest.

The restaurant is quaint and the food is very nice, choices are extensive with the chefs special being updated daily, the room was my favorite part of our stay a spacious well little chalet, comfortable, quiet and serene it is great for couples looking to get away & reconnect.

Last but most definitely not least a special mention to Dominic for making our stay a memorable one from a quick tour and history of the island to advice on where to go and what to do during our stay, Dominic is ready to help out at anytime. all in all I must say it was a blissful 3 days and we might just turn into L'Habitation regulars.

L'habitation is a lovely boutique hotel if you need to getaway from everything. The chalets are quaint with a spacious bathroom. You can choose to laze around the pool or dip in the ocean, you have a large stretch of beach all to yourself. Take a kayak and pedal around the island, there are lots of beautiful starfish to be seen. If you can try to hike up the hill to the beach on the other side of the island, there is a beautiful cove and lovely little beach, bring some snacks and some water with you. They even have a little chapel incase you decide to get married or renew your vows, the island is a lovely romantic setting if you want an island wedding.

Thank you to Dominic and the rest of the team who were friendly and accommodating. All in all L'habitation is a charming laid back getaway. We will definitely be coming back.

My hubby and I were gifted with a weekend stay at L'habitation in 2011 (sorry long overdue review). All I can say is that a weekend is not enough to enjoy the tranquility and calmness of the place. Even though the island is just a 10-15 minutes boat ride away from Victoria, it feels so far because you don't hear the hustle and bustle of the cars and people in town. The place itself was lovely. The size of the villa is just right for two. I love the spacious bathroom! It also has a varanda with some reclining chairs perfect to chill out after a dip and watch the view. What I love most about it was the delicious food that they prepare for the guests. We even made friends with this dog who seem to be a mainstay of the hotel. The staff we're quite helpful and accommodating and they make you feel at ease. One downside though was that try didn't have cable TV and there were no DVDs available if you want to just relax in the room. But overall, we had a great time staying there. I would love to come back oneday! - Ging, Victoria

Me & My Girlfriend decided to take a break from our very Hectic lives and headed to this beautiful island hotel. The Hotel is lovely, romantic and peaceful, a stone throw away from the beaches. The pool for me is one of the most amazing feature. Service is Excellent from the moment you arrive on the island. In the evening the hotel restaurant is so romantic, We relaxed under the little gazebo hut sipping cocktails while we had dinner. The food is very nice, Choices are extensive with recommended daily chef choice. The room is really nice, but the balcony is the highlight. Cant wait to escape again to L'Habitation. Special mention to Dominic ( for anything you need to make your stay special ask him). Will be back again soon.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks on our honeymoon. It is a lovely and quaint hotel, and overall just a magnificent place to stay. Management was very accommodating (thanks to Delta and Dominic). We landed at 7am and once we reached the hotel, we were shown to our room immediately. It was very nice to know our room was ready and we could relax for a bit after 24 hours of traveling. Our room was a stand-alone villa and was exceptional. It was well equipped with a mini fridge that was restocked daily and had all of the bathroom essentials that were necessary. All of the rooms are steps away from the beach and the pool. It was good to see the hotel had laundry services available, and it was something we made use of. The food at the restaurant, and the service at both the restaurant and from the hotel staff, was all excellent and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home.

This hotel also holds magnificent weddings. Even though my husband and I were married in the States, we held a second, smaller ceremony overlooking the beach at L'habitation. Delta went to great lengths to make our second wedding memorable and flawless. From organizing the food, to the décor, to hiring a photographer for us, it was absolutely perfect. We were able to have the experience of a beach wedding and the ability to have lasting memories through photographs.

Room Tip: The Hibiscus Villa is the closest stand alone room to the beach and the pool, yes still quiet when y...
