La Digue, which is the fourth-largest island in the Seychelles archipelago, is easily one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Home to an array of breathtaking beaches, laid-back La Digue is ideal for those looking for an unforgettable beach vacation. Those wishing to visit La Digue will find that the La Digue accommodation options offer a pretty replete selection. Budget travelers looking for discount La Digue lodging can choose to stay at a guesthouse or at one of the island's 2-star hotels. The 3-star La Digue hotels offer a bit more in the way of comfort, but it's the various bungalows and villas that might just offer the best all around La Digue lodging experience. La Digue Island might not be home to the most luxurious Seychelles resorts, but there are La Digue accommodation options to fit most people's wants and needs. The following are just some of the La Digue hotels that you might consider booking for your much-deserved La Digue getaway.
In 2004, the Calou Guest House was voted to be the country's
best small guesthouse, and for those looking to save a
bit of money on Seychelles
hotels, it's an ideal fit. Close to the
sea, and nestled among an alluring tropical garden, the
Calou Guest House is great for nature-lovers. There
are only 5 bungalows to choose from at this family-run
choice for discount La Digue lodging, and though they
are somewhat simple, they are hard to beat for the price.
Each bungalow has a ceiling fan, a safe, and a mini-fridge,
as well as a private bathroom w/shower. They are
1-bedroom units, featuring 2 single beds, and all of them
have terrace patios and separate sitting areas.
For a small fee, you can use the guest house's internet
facilities, and there is also a small pool to enjoy here.
When hunger hits, there is a small dining room here that
serves up some pretty good fare, and the small bar is
great for socializing in the afternoons and evenings.
Although the Seychelles can be an expensive travel destination,
La Digue accommodation choices like the Calou Guest House
can help minimize the overall price.
On the north coast of La Digue Island, the Patatran Village Hotel offers up good rooms at a nice price, but you might opt to save a bit extra at the well-priced L'Ocean Hotel. Guests can enjoy splendid ocean views from the balconies of the 8 renovated rooms here, and you can even spot Praslin Island just off in the distance. All of the rooms here are air-conditioned, and they also offer IDD telephones, ensuite bathrooms, mini-fridges, a safe box, and a hair dryer. They are all charmingly decorated, with quite comfortable beds. The restaurant here certainly lends itself well to guests' dining needs, and often times, live Creole musicians are featured. Though the L'Ocean Hotel is not right on the beach, you can get to one in minutes by foot, and you'll certainly want to consider renting one of the hotel bicycles for island tours of the two-wheeled variety. The staff at this nice choice for La Digue hotels can help you plan an array of excursions, with scuba diving and snorkeling among the most popular. Should you prefer to stay in a bungalow, then spending a bit extra at the nearby Patatran Village Hotel is worth it.
The L'Union Estate isn't only one of La Digue Island's best attractions. It's also an ideal consideration for those looking for interesting and spacious La Digue lodging. There are 4 wonderful, self-catering chalets found on the beautiful grounds of L'Union Estate, and though not overly luxurious, they are quite nice. Families, as well as those travelers looking for extra space and privacy, will likely love these big chalets, which can accommodate up to six people. All of the chalets face L'Union Beach, and a few minute's walk will have at Anse Source D'Argent, which is considered by many to be the best beach in all the Seychelles. Each 2-bedroom chalet here is cleaned daily, and among the amenities are satellite cable TV, 2 complete bathrooms, separate living and dining space, kitchen facilities, an in-room safe, and large patios with BBQ grills. Guests who choose the L'Union Estate can choose to spend extra for a "Half Board" stay, which involves enjoying breakfast and lunch at our next recommendation for La Digue Hotels.
As far as the La Digue Hotels go, the La Digue Island Lodge is certainly one of the best. In fact, it's pretty much heralded as the best La Digue accommodation option, and though it's rates are high for La Digue, they don't come near what you would pay at one of the luxury Seychelles resorts. There really aren't any La Digue resorts to choose from, but for all intents and purposes, the La Digue Island Lodge could fall into the resort category. Bordering beautiful Anse Reunion Beach, La Digue Island Lodge surely boasts an ideal location, and guests might be interested to know that this top pick for La Digue hotels is built from timber harvested locally. There are no less than 60 rooms to choose from here, with standard rooms, suites, and chalets among the choices. Many guests would agree that the detached, A-Frame Chalets are the top rooms here, but that really just depends on your personal preference. All of the rooms here are nice, and they feature satellite cable TV, tea and coffee makers, IDD telephones, A/C, mini-bars, in-room safes, and hair dryers. The restaurant here claims to serve the best Creole cooking in all the Seychelles, and it is quite nice to dine here. A nice outdoor pool with lounge chairs surrounding it is nice for down time relaxation, and there is also a pool bar offering refreshing drinks. Close to so much and able to keep its guests both busy and happy, the La Digue Island Lodge is certainly worth including on your possible list of La Digue hotels.
