The resort organized a lovely BBQ lunch for Christmas and it was the perfect getaway from the busier Mahe. Just a 15 minutes boat ride from Eden Island, the resort overlooks a lovely beach with clear blue sea. Lunch was a bit late and had gone a bit cold but the BBQ was being

Dear AnaelBodwell, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. A Very Happy New Year 2019 To You & Family! It is a pleasure to read that you spent a memorable Christmas Day at the resort and that your mother had a lovely birthday. Your nice feedback on the food has been well appreciated as well as the services provided by Prakash & Henry. To note in terms of beverage prices, it is pretty reasonable compared to the other 4* properties on Mahe, given the fact that we do have to transport everything by boat. Once again we are delighted to have been part of your special celebration & we surely do hope to welcome you back this time for an overnight stay in future. Warm Wishes

Cerf Island resort is a really beautiful hotel on virtually a private island with amazing staff but it has some serious problems, namely the food and the lack of sea view from most rooms. Starting with the good points, the resort is on a tiny island but has two beautiful

Dear Mr. & Mrs. 'O'Connell, Thank you for sharing your stay with us. Your kind comments on the remarkable service received, the spa treatments and our wonderful villa Karksay has been appreciated. Our little 4* resort has been designed for guest to have an authentic Creole experience, thus keeping the natural surroundings of a tropical hideaway atmosphere. Each villa has been designed with its own unique ambiance so as to give a different experience. Some have patches of the Indian Ocean views while others overlooking the lush vegetation with their own private garden. We strive for guest to feel more relaxed & unwind at the property thus having a gym will not really blend in. But however the property being located uphill you can have a decent work out walking up to the helipad. Drinks is actually quite reasonable for our resort compared to Seychelles standard hotel prices. One also need to bear in mind that generally drinks are imported & transferred to the island, which all adds to the cost. We however do provide the guest with a complimentary bottle of water everyday. Once again we are sorry for the inconvenience you encountered during breakfast and hope our little gesture on the last night of your stay helped to make it more pleasant for you. We usually do get very good feedback for our cuisine & have taken up the matter with the concerned department to ensure this does not happen again. Thank you once again for choosing us & we do remain hopeful to have the opportunity to welcome you back in future. Best Regards The Cerf Island Resort Team
