Desroches Island 5 Star 5 Star

Desroches is an idyllic coral island surrounded by 14 km of white sandy beaches, shallow waters and a protective reef: a haven of peace and tranquility. The beautifully furnished colonial-style suites, each affording natural seclusion and privacy, are scattered throughout the lush vegetation and palm groves. They are all just a few metres from the west-facing beach near the main restaurant and swimming pool.  

Every guest has the use of a bicycle to discover the island’s lush hinterland and its secluded, deserted sandy beaches. To discover the underwater world, Desroches has a PADI diving and water sports centre offering snorkelling, scuba diving and game-fishing. The Escape Spa offers a range of soothing and invigorating treatments which can be enjoyed in either the Spa centre, your own suite or on the beach in the shade of the palm trees. 

Location

Desroches Island forms part of the Amirantes group of islands, located 230km southwest of Mahé. The scenic flight takes about 40 minutes.
