Forest Lodge Guest House located in the beautiful north-west of Mahé, which is ideal for backpackers tourists. The famous, bustling bay of Beau Vallon is not far away from the accommodation, while the nearby coastal road offers spectacular views of the ocean and the gorgeous Seychelles landscape. The apartments of the estate are ideal for self-catering thanks to their in-built kitchen. In addition, there's a barbeque area available for use by guests, where you can grill the freshly-caught delights of the Seychelles and enjoy them outside under the sun. Or, if you don't fancy preparing your own meal, the hotel also has its own restaurant, which offers good food that will satisfy your hunger. The guesthouse is run and owned by the same people, so they are always happy to lend a hand to their guests, recommending tourist attractions with their broad knowledge, as well as hiking trails, special restaurants, and other home secrets.
Each unit features a flatscreen TV, air-conditioning, and a balcony. In addition, you will find a complete kitchen unit or kitchenette in each unit, containing all the necessary equipment for a self-catering holiday. The private bathroom has a toilet, sink, and shower. The balcony leads off the property, and offers a beautiful view of the mountains and garden. Inside, the simple decor and the welcoming atmosphere will make you feel right at home. In the bedrooms, kingsize beds or twin beds ensure a well-deserved night's sleep, leaving you refreshed each morning. Listen to the birds in the morning from your balcony as you enjoy a delicious cup of coffee, ready for a new day in the Seychelles. The rooms of the guesthouse are divided into three categories, the "Studio with Balcony", "Studio with Twin Beds and Balcony", and "Apartment with Balcony". These units differ in terms of size, as well as certain features. The apartment is the largest living unit, and includes a separate living room with integrated dining area and a spacious kitchen.
The nearby sandy beach of Beau Vallon is one of the most famous bays in the whole world, and is the longest sandy stretch in the Seychelles. Unlike many smaller coves, this beach allows you to participate in several different watersports, and slopes gently into the sea. Over the last few years, a small yet bustling town has sprung up around the beach, including several bars, restaurants, and shops. The beach itself, however, manages to remain relatively uncrowded, even during peak season. Don't miss the Bazar Labrine market each Wednesday, right in the bay, where locals sell their products, delicacies, and souvenirs, sometimes accompanied by live music. In addition, Mahé is home to the Seychelles' capital, Victoria, where you can admire traditional markets, popular bars and restaurants, and a beautiful harbour.

The best of all three rooms, a bit old, but very nice and with atmosphere. Again, we were well looked after. The breakfast the night before we found to be positive. That gave us more freedom and we were able to eat some fruit in the evening. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Clean top, nice and large room, difficult to reach without a car - very steep approach, parking available, nice hosts, good welcome, good location near the beach. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
it could have been a better experience as the first two days would have earned a star or two more but the second visit was really bad. (presence of cockroaches in the bathroom, air conditioning that turns into a jackhammer in the middle of the night so forced to extinguish ... very basic breakfast with butter expired since February and over-billing to stay two hours moreover while waiting for our taxis to take us to the airport (after 4 nights past the gesture "commercial" is very bad.) Brief not necessarily recommendable in the state. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
A rental car is an absolute must, as recommended by Seyvillas. Very clean apartment in a quiet and well-kept atmosphere. Drinks on the spot are offered at cost price! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Forest Lodge is located on the edge of the forest. The quarters are clean, the staff was very friendly and helped with the luggage on the stairs. The breakfast in the evening on the room. There is no coffee maker, we were fortunately with our filter Down the hill LI is a small deserted beach. To Beau Vallon the bus is down at the road. Our hosts were very cordial and with advice and act to the place. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful location in the countryside. Mandatory car rental otherwise everything is within walking distance. Large room with small kitchen. Friendly welcome. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The manor house is very nice, quiet and well located, a little way up the hill. The spacious rooms were neat, clean and functional. The large balcony was great for a leisurely breakfast. Stephen is a great host who takes great care of his guests - and a relaxed motorist too - which is something one can not say of all Seychelles residents. ;) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
