The Cerf Island Resort is one of the Seychelles' best-kept secrets. While many other high-end resorts in the Seychelles charge four-figure fees for an overnight stay, this resort makes a conscious effort to remain affordable while maintaining the same high standards of luxury you'd expect elsewhere. This balance may be the main reason for the resort's success. Our customers certainly think so, with the resort receiving top recommendations from clients. It also ranks amongst the most-requested accommodations in our programme.

However, it's not just the price that's attractive about the Cerf Island Resort; its spectacular location at the tip of the island is another huge reason for the resort's success. Two fine, sandy beaches are easily-accessible from the complex, and the resort's grounds stretch over 5 hectares up to Cerf Island's highest point. A total of 24 villas in 3 different categories (Hillside Villas, Hideaway Villas, and Tortoise Suites) are situated amidst the untouched local scenery.

Small bridges and jungle paths wind through the well-maintained vegetation, and at the centre of the resort lies a spacious, airy restaurant by the beach, surrounded by a bar, reception area, two pool areas, and a large lounge/relaxation area. Here, you can also access WiFi, allowing you to catch up with the rest of the world if you so wish.

The Cerf Island Resort is the island's most luxurious accommodation, and can be recommended to any Seychelles holidaymaker looking for a quiet, tropical location. The untouched nature that surrounds the resort provides a feeling of exclusivity, and this atmosphere comes at a great price too. For these reasons, the Seyvillas team can easily recommend the resort to you!

The resort has two fine-dining restaurants, although they are not open at the same time. The staff arrange the guests in such a way to give them the best impression of their surroundings, the best wind and sunlight conditions, and the best view of the colourful Indian Ocean. The breakfast is served à la carte, while lunch can either be from the light meal menu or à la carte (please note: guests with an all-inclusive package are served a set-menu lunch). The evening meal is served as a set menu for all half board guests. Once a week, the resort offers a Creole evening, with Creole food and live music at no extra cost to the in-house guest. At the moment, the only bar that is open is the restaurant bar, but the resort aims to have the Pool Bar Lounge up-and-running as soon as possible.

Activities and specials:

  • Enjoy the island's serene, tropical atmosphere and relax on the fine, sandy beach.
  • Discover some of the Seychelles' most beautiful sunsets from the heli-platform.
  • Go snorkeling around the extensive coral reef that begins at the resort's beach.
  • The trip to Mahé takes approximately ten minutes, and the hotel's own 'Lagoon Taxi' makes the trip serveral times each day. Mahé offers many beautiful beaches, the Seychelles' vibrant capital Victoria, and an exciting rainforest area to explore.
  • The 'Lagoon Taxi' is free of charge at the following times: Cerf - Mahé: 8.30, Mahé - Cerf: 15.30. Other trips depend on availability, and are charged at €12/person each way.
  • Arrival and departure transfers are charged at €30/person for the return trip. This price is the same regardless of the time of the trip.
  • Transport between Cerf and Mahé is offered to allow guests to enjoy dinner on Mahé. The price is €12/person. We can recommend the Board Walk Restaurant on Eden island for its delicious drinks and tasty octopus salad.
  • The hotel also provides a transfer to Mahé's jetty, instead of Eden Island, which allows you to take a further ferry to Praslin.
  • Guests can hire a canoe or kayak from the hotel.
  • There is also a tennis court, panorama terrace at the island's peak, internet lounge with DVDs, library, snooker table and table tennis (free of charge) and two restaurants.
  • Cerf Island Resort offers an all-inclusive package. Enjoy a delicious breakfast, lunch, and a mouth-watering four-course dinner with a beautiful night-time view of the main island, Mahé. This package also includes unlimited free drinks (exceptions apply).
  • Celebrate your wedding on Cerf Island! Attractive Discounts, Wedding Ceremony at any location of your choice, Sunset Cruise, Beach Dinner, Manicure & Pedicure and so much more to make your big day a memorable one!

We where in vacation for 4 nights in Cerf island resort. The only good thing i can say is the location. Not only that the food was bad and the 4 star hotel miserliness was remarkable. On the day of arrival we saw in the guest information directory " We know your vacation time is precious..." I would like to share the interpretation of Mark Borreu(resident manager) for the guest precious time We stayed in 2 villas on the first day of our arrival: I took a shower the water drainage of the shower was blocked, causing the water to flow in to the vila. After more then one hour it was fixed,when I wanted to turn on the air-conditioning the remote did not work another half hour spent. I did not say nothing to the hotel. The morning after when i wanted to take shower there was no water at all. We went to breakfast and there was no water in breakfast in this resort if you want water in breakfast you should pay! In the villas (I found later) the resort supposed to put 1 bottle of water for each gust per day. There was no bottles in one of the villas for the first day in the other villa we did not get the water. The reaction of the resort manager was that these are small details. A manager explain that the reason for not having water in the villa was that they use 2 tanks of water and when one is empty they open the second.I understand that the manager could not forecast that the opening of the second tank should be done at 9:00 am when every one wants to use water. I do understand that problems in hotel can happened but the accumulation of problem showing the poor management of this resort, In general instead of understanding and offering some compensation, the manager was unpleasant to my complaints and did not offer any compensation. I recommend avoiding Cerf island resort!!! David

A very good starting point for all snorkeling and diving fans. The Starnd directly in front of the hotel is relatively small. But you can easily access the adjacent beaches - and they are beautiful. The hotel itself is very good, but with small deductions. The staff is very helpful, the food is very good, the facility is well kept, the massage was good and strong, etc. In order to meet our desire for a villa with sea view, we were on the second day even moved to another, larger accommodation , The deductions come from a visually as well as odorlessly hidden garbage dump, lightly soiled towels and the pads on the sun loungers are simply wet after the regular rain showers (will not be cleared away or protected from the rain).Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate

Cerf Island is a beautiful little island. The hotel area blends nicely into the nature, but is already a bit getting old. The family villa was clean overall. The equipment of the villa was however - except for the new bath - a bit older. Due to the wood processing and the shadow situation, the rooms seemed a bit dark and musty; but were okay. The staff, especially the front desk staff, were always friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is not really generous to call. However, many delicacies can be ordered from the breakfast menu. The dinner buffet was varied and delicious. The hotel can only offer small beaches because of the location, but they are quite adequate. The hotel offers free canoes and pedal boats for exploring the island. The underwater landscape is really worth seeing. Unfortunately, the hotel had problems with the internet / wi-fi connection, so we were largely isolated from the outside world. The hotel's guest PC was quite slow and poor.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
