La Digue Island Lodge is on the unspoiled island of La Digue where life has a slower pace than on Mahe, and the local people welcome visitors to enjoy their island. The island is almost unchanged since the first Europeans arrived and declared it the Garden of Eden. Locals and visitors alike shun cars and travel in oxcarts or on bicycles.
The accommodation at the Lodge includes frame chalets, a beach house and other rooms in a tropical garden of coconut trees and flowering plants. They have all the expected amenities.
The main restaurant offers expert and creative Creole cuisine in a dining room with a sandy floor and thatched roof. The room is open air and guests enjoy the view to Praslin Island and the spectacular sunset. The pool bar can be reached from the pool or from the terrace where cocktails are served.
The Lodge has a swimming pool and a dive centre and babysitting services are provided on request. There are several small, uninhabited islands nearby for snorkelling and diving. There is also fishing and trekking available. Guests take mountain treks to Nid'Aigle, Anse Coco as well as cruises just to see the sunset.
The Union Boulders is a natural wonder that resembles an elephant and the old cemetery is a historical site where the first permanent European settlers on La Digue are buried. These are a few of the places to see along the nature trails.
The Lodge spa offers personal care for each individual. It has outdoor facilities with cool breezes and a full line of health and beauty treatments. The expert therapists give several different types of massage to relax and rejuvenate.
La Digue Island Lodge welcomes families and has many activities just for children. They love the peaceful atmosphere that is centred on the beach and forest and not on cars and shopping.
