Relax in this neat, family-run hotel, La Rousette, in the south-east of Mahé. The hotel is located just a few minutes’ walk away from the sandy beach of Au Cap, as well as the Seychelles’ golf club, and the Seychelles International Airport is only five or so kilometres from the accommodation.
6 × Superior Room (up to 2 people)
Activities and specials:
- Numerous excursions can be organised by the hotel on request.
- The staff of the La Rousette hotel will also happily arrange airport transfers or rental cars for guests.
- For relaxing days, guests have the choice between the beach and the beautiful pool area.
- The hotel offers plenty for island-hoppers and travellers-in-transit, including the chance to spend a short time at the hotel, including usage of a separate bathroom just for this purpose (fees apply for non-hotel guests).
- Children and adults can admire the 2 giant turtles living on the property.
The charming, family-run La Rousette Hotel is located amidst a lush green garden, and is located just 10 minutes away from the Seychelles International Airport on the east coast of Mahé. Thanks to this attractive location, within easy reach of everything, this is the ideal starting point for an island-hopping holiday. In particular, anyone looking for a relaxing holiday will find themselves right at home in the calm, pleasant atmosphere of this hotel, including swimming pool, relaxation area, billiards table, and bar. All of the rooms also offer free WiFi, which is also available in the public areas of the hotel.
The hotel welcomes families, couples, and business clients with the same enthusiasm, and offers eleven bungalow-style standard and superior rooms, each of which contains air-conditioning, satellite TV, kingsize bed, wardrobe, writing desk, bathroom, and balcony, creating a really friendly atmosphere throughout the hotel. The superior rooms are slightly larger than the standard rooms, and also offer a living room suite and an additional bed, so there is space for up to four people. In terms of catering, you have flexibility and a choice between breakfast, lunchtime meals and evening meals in the hotel’s own restaurant. The classic Creole cuisine on offer here is one of guests’ favourite aspects of the hotel.
Travellers-in-transit and holidaymakers who have a late flight will find that this is the ideal place for a short stay, where they can acclimatise to their new surroundings and spend some time relaxing, eating lunch, or using the pool. A separate shower can be used afterwards to ensure that you feel refreshed for your onward journey. We find this to be a truly excellent additional service!
The nearby beach of Anse aux Pins is only partially suitable for swimming and snorkelling. During the south-east trade winds, between May and September, swimming and snorkelling are sometimes not possible due to wind, waves, and seaweed. That said, you can easily reach any number of beautiful beaches from the hotel using a rental car or the public bus service. Indeed, Mahé is best discovered by car, allowing you to stop here and there, discovering hidden spots and enjoying the island. In fact, from the coastal roads, many of which run alongside the beach, it is easy to get a really good feel of the country, and discover just what makes the unique natural-paradise of the Seychelles so special.

No food. Go to Marengo House to eat. Kind staff. Short stay in transit Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Friendly staff, cleanliness and acceptable services. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Meals and drinks are overpriced, double what we could pay elsewhere !!! It is well kept, the staff is very friendly. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
food not good and hotel less recent than it looks in the photos, we were disappointed Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Accommodation was Great
As I said. Neat run, friendly staff, clean, 5 km to the airport, secured at night and reasonably quiet. However, one gets through the barred windows and the walls, gates and cameras somehow, as in jail. But it is better that way, because we were once awakened by three pistol shots in the immediate vicinity. The air conditioning in cottage 11 was loud and not very effective. The attitude of the two turtles are a heinous disaster for any animal lover. For what is offered, it seemed too expensive. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Here we were only one night. Very helpful staff and the complex laid out nicely. Unfortunately the location right on the main road not perfect, but the traffic noise was not so bad, because the accommodation was built a bit backwards. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
For one night before departure okay .... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Super structure for a short stage. Sober kitchen but quality. Good comfort of the accommodation and its bedding. And as a bonus, to relax, a nice pool in a well maintained exotic garden. Affable and smiling staff. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
We were twice at La Roussette, 2 nights before Bird Island and an extra night to Bird Island, due to the early morning flight at eight in the morning. The first two nights we were horrified, a disaster room! Hardly any water pressure in the shower, no hot water! The room an impertinence, no storage space, we had to live out of the suitcase on the ground. We dreaded returning to this place after our trip to Bird Island. But we were surprised, the complete opposite awaited us. A really nice room with water that was even warm! We did not want to complain at the first stay, as the staff was always very nice. Conclusion: first stay 1 star, second stay 4 stars. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Extremely spacious and nice room. The breakfast was great and also on the special requests for the children was received without any problems. The pool is nice too and there were unsolicited pool towels. The location is good. However, the taxi transfer airport hotel is extremely expensive, which has hardly paid for the one night. The beach is very close, but the access is extremely lousy, which is a pity. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A great find - very reasonable rates but very good quality. Very nice helpful staff. And so quiet at night.
Well, for the last night before the return flight ok, but not suitable for a longer stay without a rental car. Food Indian. Nice, clean facility, but the beach across the street rather dirty and unkempt, no comparison to La Digue and Praslin. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
good location (near the airport), very clean, nice pool Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good hotel for 1 night with small pool very nice while waiting to go to the airport. Unusual beach next to the hotel (in comparison to those next to our other hotels). Takamaka Distillery not too far on foot, but very dangerous road for pedestrians. Very friendly staff. Average restaurant. Breakfast very good. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
We were very pleasantly surprised. Very friendly staff, very clean, nice restaurant, all rooms with a small terrace. Early check-out 6:00 or earlier no problem (but no breakfast), which is important on the return journey. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good welcome, comfortable hotel and good location. Little more for the pool Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
STRUCTURE IN THE MEDIUM BUT EXCELLENT SERVICE BY THE GIRL AT THE RECECPTION ALWAYS PRESENT, AVAILABLE AND CARINA IN PROVIDING USEFUL TIPS. THE CONTRARY EXACT OF THE SERVICE RECEIVED AT THE OCEAN JEWELS RESORT IN PRASLIN Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
clean and cozy but basic very little offer for evening meal (fast food type) wifii very weak connection Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation was good: friendly staff, cleanliness was ok, service was nice - the sign up for dinner was unfortunately forgotten to mention -> restaurants or take aways were not accessible without a car. Location: car rental would be recommended. Free internet access Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We had as a day hotel until the departure, from there ok. Clean room and very friendly welcome. For vacation rather nothing. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Internet didn't work,they only had one option for starter main and dessert the worst food I have ever experienced in a hotel.
Room was just about ok
The pool was good
The staff were nice the owner or manager was a little rude
I can not imagine this hotel lasting
Ok for one night not any longer
Obviously a little disappointed after seeing some heavenly places, because neither sea nor view but the purpose of this hotel was for the proximity of the airport so it fulfills its role! The staff is very helpful. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Hotel went like this. Staff was nice. Room was relatively clean, but quite run down. Dinner in the evening was not so good. Pool very small. Close to the airport. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Ideal accommodation for one last night before taking the plane because of its proximity to the airport. Close to the sea and the beach. Friendly welcome, nice room. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Great for a night before flying back. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Wonderful welcome as the staff Location welcoming Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Very nice, small hotel near the airport, but absolutely quiet. Very nice, big rooms, each with its own terrace. Nice, small pool with umbrellas and beach chairs. Breakfast and dinner for an additional charge. Very friendly staff, very clean hotel. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
All perfect. The only advice to rent the car to move. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
We were upgraded to a brand new and beautiful apartment. Air conditioning is only in the rooms. No hold in the bathroom. But charming establishment and very welcoming staff. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
- nice hotel near the airport - used as a last stay due to the flight and transfer times 1. day - nice staff - adequate food - TV program insufficient 4 channels with bad reception - window in the bathroom not open - otherwise good clean condition - with nice small pool area - on the day of departure unfortunately no one at the reception accessible - turtles in the hotel area Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Spacious clean rooms with a small terrace. Very friendly staff. Delicious breakfast. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Friendly staff. Swimming pool. possibility to put your suitcases until departure. Taxi call The accommodations are old. The TV did not work well, the safe did not work. The headboard was split and the bathroom very old! So we were a little disappointed because for the price, we expected better. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
As transfer hotel optimal, trip to Eden Island 400 Rupies taxi costs. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Here we only spent the last night before we left. The room was clean, the lady at the registration very friendly. As a transfer hotel great. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
About this hotel I can only say: Thank God for only one night. The location is not nice. Right on the street. Beach is totally degraded. Many ruins. The service and the staff in the hotel was very nice and courteous. But the bottom line is not a successful farewell, after such a beautiful and wonderful holiday. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
This last hotel, which I actually only booked for the last night to transition, was, contrary to expectations, the most pretentious hotel and also upgraded to a superior room. The staff were so welcoming .. and it was very, very clean. I slept great last night. :) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
We stayed in the standard room # 1, where it smelled damp and musty. There is no real closet and we lived the 2 days out of the suitcase. The bathroom is a 1.5 x 3.5 long hose with toilet and shower. The sink so small that you can not even put your laundry there. The mattress on the window side is so saggy and old that even a wire from one of the springs sags when you sit on it. Did not notice until the last night, otherwise I would have said something more. So concretely this room is the worst thing we have experienced anywhere, a real dump. The staff was partly friendly and the lady from the check-in very helpful, but sometimes musty and rude. Especially the breakfast are totally unmotivated. The first evening we had dinner at the hotel. There was a dry fish curry with rice and some vegetables, for which the 300 rupees per person were completely overpriced. Since we had eaten far better curries for far less money in the Seychelles. The pool is small, but, after there is not really a swimming nearby, at least enough if you want to refresh yourself. What is very convenient in this accommodation is the late checkout, which we had already booked in advance, since our plane did not leave until just before midnight. So we were picked up at 21.00 clock and could use the whole day still optimally on the island and in peace showers before departure. As an emergency shelter and if it is not just like the Zi. No. 1 with these massive deficiencies, it is perhaps just. But then you have to be used to campsites and campsites. With hotel it has nothing more to do. Therefore, we can not recommend this accommodation absolutely, since one actually already expected, that recognizes the deficiencies and without any hints by guests eliminated. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel is ok for one night before departure. You can also eat snacks in the evening, but you have to reserve that before, which we could not by the long journey from Silhouette. There Seyvillas would be asked to organize this. At least in the description indicate that the environment invited not now to go for a walk in the dark. Room, pool, order and cleanliness tip-top. The service was ok too. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We were upgraded upon arrival to the adjacent Resindece Argine. Actually much too big for two people, but all very high quality and brand new. That's why we can not say anything about the "La Rousette" property. The staff was very courteous and friendly and always available. The food (we ate there twice) was good to very good. Only the two turtles, Billy and Jean, who are kept in a very narrow enclosure in the front yard, do not quite fit into the picture. Here we would wish for a better awareness of the management of species-friendly Teri attitude. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel, the turtle enclosure puts us immediately in the atmosphere, impeccable benefits, very good reception (refreshing towels and homemade lemonade, what a treat!), Nice pool, beautiful terrace music. The maintenance of green spaces is just perfect. The cleanliness of the rooms is impeccable, the bungalows are charming and spacious, there was plenty of towels in the bathroom. The staff was warm. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Only 2 rooms were occupied. Small room and shower not appealing, mini sink, small. Flat TV with 8 channels (no German) is not bad for 1 night. Mini Pool approx L4m / W 2m / D 90cm !! Plant otherwise pretty and well maintained. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Location far from the airport, drive through hotel cost € 20, -. The most expensive and worst hotel of our trip. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything for the best, including floral decoration of the room to the reception. Refreshment to the reception. Friendly, punctual, helpful staff. Everything was very well maintained, clean and attractive. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Ok for our purpose a good solution
Due to the late Emirates flight, we only booked a day room at "La Roussette" and were pleasantly surprised by this lovely little hotel. Friendly staff, small pool, clean room. For a longer stay on Mahe because of the unattractive location but rather not suitable. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
For one night near the airport too expensive and too elaborate of you, but the hotel was excellent. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very nice facility Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We had a good dinner. The rooms are very basic, but ok. Price / performance is right! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
It was very short one night but very good home and very good performance Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
La Rousette is a pretty resort with individual bungalows. Here we were received very friendly and felt right at home. On the bed, an elephant was conjured up from the towels and written on the bed with palm leaves "Welcome". The dinner was also delicious. The chef convinced himself if it tasted good and gave my husband an extra portion of meat. Unfortunately, the security is not respected and so we found ourselves in the middle of the night in a nightmare, in a bungalow was trying to break. The boss calmed us down with a lot of Takamaka and even if we did not sleep that night, the hotel was still nice. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very familiar hotel and nice little area. Location of the hotel close to the airport thus short stay on arrival and departure optimal. Rooms especially the bathrooms are unfortunately not very nice but functional. The food was great and the chef is very dedicated because of that instead of four stars. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very welcome friendly staff. Too bad the hotel is located far enough away from everything. A beach is supposedly not far off it is not really a place to swim. The transfer was a little long to go on the other hand very punctual return. Ideal place for one night. Meal a little expensive for the quality of cooked products. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
