Great resort , fantastic food and service . Best beaches at biking distance!
I just realized I forgot to post my review of our last visit at 4S last year. The resort is new , splendid and offers state of the art accommodation. The best four seasons accommodation that I ever experience in our two bedroom villa . The Desroches Island is wonderful and is a place were one can completely disconnect ! The best beaches are not next to the hotel but reachable by bike . Be aware that the beaches are not as nice as in the maldives and other places in the seychelles . There can be a lot of seaweed on the beach or in the water which makes swimming difficult in some area. This is a bit unpleasant for such a dream destination. However we were able to find empty beaches by biking for a few minutes. The hotel provides bikes to every guest We are frequent travelers with FS and repeater guests for the second time at this property and highly appreciated the upgrade. Big thanks . The sunset beach villa N 2 is amazing !!!! We also recognized the huge improvements since the opening ; in particular for the service and F&B. The transfer on arrival from an international connection is still a bit weird with long waiting time . Now one is at least welcomed by a FourSeasons staff and brought to some External marina to wait for3-4 hours for the domestic flight to depart. We enjoyed discovering the island with the bikes and Turtle park Mrs Charo will always be missed by our daughter . She is just so fantastic at playing with her at the the kids club . Our daughter felt loved and the parents could enjoy a real break . A special mention goes to her who went beyond expectations to make our daughter happy. That being said when the kids club is not attended by her our daughter didn't want to go. The kids club is a bit dead without engaging activities off season We really loved the food prepared by Chef Cook Mr Olivier Barre and his team. The fish and meat quality were outstanding , so was even the King crab and Mozarella that you serve. Our experience in F&B has not always been great in FourSeasons but this time everything was perfect! The tasty menus , the quality of the ingredients and the ability to cook them to perfection. Thanks for the recipes which were shared on how to do the slow cooking miso cod and the fishes :). The Light house is our favorite for an evening drink and dinner in a natural setting Mrs Charo was fantastic at playing with Lea at the the kids club . Our daughter felt loved and the parents could enjoy a real break . A special mention goes to Charo and Melody who went beyond expectations to make our daughter happy. The new resort on Desroches Island is just amazing !
The hotel is perfect for people, who like silent, relax, romantic vacation, quality service and exceptional beachfront. Service is really great, you get everything you need before you think about it even. You feel very special and private. All villas are separated with greens, so no one can disturb you. Thank you for a nice vacation!
A stay to remember
The hotel and service is incredible (especially Kamlesh and Putta), the rooms are stunning, we loved the outdoor pool area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I wish they had more restaurant variety as it got a little repetitive after 5 days. Otherwise a fantastic, relaxing trip.
Amazing Properly with the most personalized service!
The property is the perfect mix of great food, privacy/seclusion, world class staff/service, adventure, and amazing views! We spent 6 nights at this property and had an amazing time riding the bikes to all the different beaches! I cant say enough about the staff at this property as they are AMAZING! Providing some of the best and personalized service I have received from any Four Seasons property.
Best Hotel We've Been To
We stayed here for 5 nights in the Sunset Beach Villa. First, the island itself is flat, and the resort is concentrated at one end of it. There is a path that goes the whole way with beach access scattered about. It’s a good bike ride for a day when you have some energy. At each beach, there are paddle boards and kayaks, picnic tables, an outdoor shower, restroom, towels, and water. What a phenomenal way to get us access to all the beaches on the island! Yes, we only ultimately visited 2 as the surf/sea grass was not in our favor at the others but we were happy at those 2. Be sure to pick up snorkel gear before you first go out! Our first paddle board, we could see turtles swimming but didn’t have gear. We think the service we received at Desroches was the best we have ever received at a hotel. Some people who stood out during our stay are Prashant, Terrence, Liz, Rabie, Jaspreet, Mary, Silvie, and Keddy. It’s a small enough resort that you see the same faces regularly, which is fun! Our room was massive. We had our bed, a daybed, and a trundle bed; two toilets; one gorgeous bathtub; 2 indoor showers and 2 outdoor; porch; hammock... the pool is a great size. Way more than a plunge pool and we spent so many hours reading in the shade and swimming. Food was excellent. It is very expensive to eat and drink on Desroches (like 2 or 3 times what we would expect in our home city). With that, every meal was excellent. The breakfast buffet was continental and you could order hot dishes; lunch was great; and dinner is where they really shined. Definitely try the lounge at the Lighthouse and get dinner there. The noises of the Shearwaters in the bushes should make you laugh. They also did some thoughtful touches to celebrate our honeymoon; we felt very acknowledged! The plane to and from was easy and pretty comfy. Cons: tennis court cuts into grass abruptly behind the base line...
