Perfect place to be
Le Domaine de l´Orangeraie at La Digue is a perfect place to be. The hotel is ideally located just 5 mins from the jetty. The architecture is very much appealing, the villas are located up in the hilly forest and we had a nice overview to the sea. From your balcony you can see the flying dogs moving in the forest. The villas are spacious and attractively decorated. Beautiful bed, beautiful bathroom with wonderful bath ameneties The staff was extremly helpful and friendly.
The best hotel on La Digue
Spring for the villas in the jungle, you won't regret it. The outdoor showers and detailed rooms will make your time in the hotel as beautiful as the time exploring the island. The food is top notch, the pool and pool bar are beautiful and the staff is on top of every detail. I can't recommend this one strongly enough. We enjoyed every moment from the native dancers around the fire pit to the table on the edge of the water for breakfast. Go, go, go!
An absolute dream
We stayed in one of the Elegance Villas and it was delightful! Extremely spacious, tastefully decorated, very private and it had a jacuzzi. We adored the outside shower and large private balcony. Aside from a lovely room, the resort was well maintained and had very friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast each morning and always had a nice table overlooking the water. We had lunch at Combava once and otherwise we went elsewhere. We had dinner at Combava twice and once at Santosha. Combava was our favourite as it was a la carte and a bit more special, but Santosha was also nice. While Santosha is buffet style, there is still table service. Great pool area with a nice little pool bar for drinks. Small but nice beach area as well. We were able to go for long cycle rides and/or walks and always felt very safe and relaxed. Overall a wonderful stay
Stayed in the Villa Elegance. Ultra dreamy, romantic room up in the hilltops with a private jacuzzi. Perfect for couples/honeymooners. The hotel provides a buggy service to and from your room so there’s no need to walk the incredibly steep hill each day. Staff were kind and attentive. We were on half board, and breakfast and dinner buffets had something to offer for everyone. Short and easy bike ride into town for shops and restaurants and plenty of beaches to choose from. Highly recommended.
A Complete Dissapointment
We were on a short Vacation in late April 2019 to Ladigue Island Seychelles and hoping to End up at Le domaine de L'orangeraie for a stay and was very fortunate that the hotel was fully booked after having had the bitterness taste of the service during our short visit. The Location and the Hotel s indeed a nice place but unfortunately it's unprofessional service staff makes it one of the worst Place. I would describe the below facts as a scam and would wish the management of Le Domaine to seriously look into it; *We've decided to hop in with our friends so we could book again for our next visit and it all started from the Lunch that we've booked in it's well known restaurant "Combava"! Upon arrival, guess what- No reservation found even though confirmation was given from the Manager at the reception. Never mind as we didn't wanted our host to be dissapointed and moved on pretending that everything is fine. * Our Next surprise was the pool facility; We were so mesmerized by the pool and decided to inquire for the facility, and got diverted to the Bar Manager "Prashen" , which he explain that Outside guest needs to pay an additional fee of SCR 500 to be able to access the pool facility, which we understood and respected as well as we were not hotel guest, so we proceeded to pay for 5 People in euro , and was offered to open a tab to pay later on if we were to consume more drinks from the pool bar which we accepted. - It was honestly bit weird to note that we consumed around 6 cocktail + the pool fee added which makes it around Euro 350 and yet no receipt was provided, having paid in foreign currency we were being told that the printer was not working, now this is something very serious and would want the management of the hotel to look into it closely. Yet we proceeded and pay to Mr. Prashen. No change given as we've asked to keep the rest as tip. Hence being in the service sector we completely understood that something is wrong. But still we didnt want to raise the point as there were no management visibility . Cherry on the Cake; This is where the glass got full! The Bar Manager completely crossed the line by asking us to write a review about him and the hotel which he works, and even in return offered to offer us a round of beer. Sorry to say! It's completely unprofessional to harass the clients like this, i would define it a complete scam and would wish thorough investigation. We kept our coolness and said that we would definitely write something good. We have few more details that could be shared and would appreciate if the management could share the contact details.
