Known for its rural feel and exceptionally clean living areas, the Chateau St Cloud Hotel brings a feeling of peace and quiet seclusion to its guests without isolating them from the rest of the island. Located on La Digue, the resort offers a sense of tranquility not offered on other islands, giving it a true sense of native charm.
There are three different room types offered at the Chateau, and each allows guests to bask in luxury. Whether you choose the standard, superior or deluxe accommodation, you'll be treated with incredible views from your terrace or balcony. However, only the four deluxe rooms have a view of the hotel garden.
The friendly staff would be happy to facilitate any activities you may wish to engage in, including big game fishing, snorkeling, diving or a guided boat tour of the various islands. The main island Mahe is also just a short boat ride away and is the home of many different attractions.
The food offering focuses mainly on native Creole cuisine, which is good news for the more adventurous traveler. Interestingly, they have decided to forego the traditional buffet style offering and have a set menu that is served in the evening. If you're looking for a place to grab a drink while enjoying the outdoors, there is a poolside bar ready to serve all your favorite cocktails.
The Chateau St Cloud Hotel is a great change of pace from the traditional vacation offerings, but it may not be for everyone. All the same, this tropical getaway's reputation for service and excellence is not undeserved, and those who stay there won't soon forget it.
