Le Repaire in La Digue is a secluded boutique with only a handful of rooms, perfect for those looking for a home-from-home retreat, away from the crowds. It’s right next to the Anse Severe, one of the Seychelle’s most famous beaches.
If you can drag yourself away from the sandy shores, visit the nearby village of La Passe. Stroll along the main jetty, visit the local shops, and even rent bicycles from the town centre.
You could also try island-hopping to Praslin or Mahé during your stay; excursions the team at the hotel can help you plan. The staff can also help you organise water sports and fishing excursions – so definitely ask for some recommendations.
Although this is a world away from the big resorts in the Seychelles, there are a few different types of rooms for you to choose from. The Superior Seaview Room, as the name suggests, has the best view of the Indian Ocean – if you’re looking for inspiring vistas, this is the room for you.
There’s a lovely little swimming pool where you can cool off – it’s great if you don’t fancy going in the sea that day. And, it’s surrounded by a lush green garden that provides much-needed shade during the hot summer days.
Le Repaire also has its own restaurant and its chefs are already gaining a good reputation locally. It mainly serves Italian food, but uses fresh local produce in all its dishes. The restaurant also serves lunches and breakfast, so you definitely won’t go hungry.
Why We Love It
We love Le Repaire because it’s a quaint little hotel with much to offer its visitors. It’s a hidden gem, but that can only be a good thing for us travellers!
