About La Désirade

La Désirade is a self-catering guest house situated in the village of Pointe au Sel, in the district of Au Cap on Mahe Island, on the south eastern coast. It is made up of three large one-bedroom, ocean-facing Studio Apartments, each capable of hosting two adults and one or two children.

The affordable yet comfortable and tastefully decorated studios, positioned right on the beach, offer you a base camp from which to journey through our beautiful Seychelles.

Each open-plan, air-conditioned apartment has a fully equipped kitchenette and a bathroom with a hot and cold shower. The rooms have direct telephone lines, Wi-Fi and TVs. The apartments have patios facing the sea and the rising sun.

Since La Désirade is self-catering, we do not offer any meals, however there are two restaurants within walking distance and two shops close by, where you can buy your groceries.

The guest house is safe and family friendly and welcomes all travellers looking for affordable self-catering holiday accommodation in the Seychelles.

The apartments offer parking for guests, 24-hour CCTV security and transfers to and from Seychelles International Airport. We offer a daily chambermaid service and laundry facilities on request.

We arrived late on a Sunday evening & had to travel by taxi to Fleur de Sel to which we had been upgraded (Different location from La Desirade which we never visited). Difficult to find. The taxi fare was 500 rupees. We booked at this place because it had advertised that they would transport us to & from the airport. A week before we left for the Seychelles we learnt that in fact, they did not offer that service.The welcome was good to a contemporary, comfortable apartment. It is serviced daily & we were happy with all the facilities. Lena, the cleaning lady was particularly helpfu...

We enjoyed our stay there as it was right on the beach. Our swimming and snorkelling experience was super - we even spotted lionfish and rays. The kitchen/bedroom was well-appointed and maintained, despite not having a safe for our valuables. It has a spacious outside area with the appropriate loungers and table and chairs to enjoy meals outdoors. Perhaps the beach access could be reconsidered - we had to walk around to the busy road and get to it from there . The staff and owners were friendly but non-intrusive - perfect for us. We would definitely stay there again.

We were booked to stay at La Desirade but on the evening of our arrival we were told that we've been upgraded to Fleur de Sel (same owners) and were transferred accordingly. We were not aware of the change as the message was sent while we were already travelling. Fleur de Sel was lovely but we really wanted to be close to a beach where our 2 year old son could play. We took a drive to La Desirade and loved the little beach next to it (I can't comment on the rooms as we did not get to see any). It is however centrally located to a little shop, bus stop and bakery.
