Description:

L'Habitation hotel is situated next to the beach on Cerf Island, a small island located in the middle of the protected St. Anne National Park. Nowhere else in the Seychelles will you find such a concentrated number of small islands surrounded by a coral reef, or such a rich underwater fish population. As you can imagine, Cerf Island is therefore very popular for snorkelling.

The other big draw of Cerf is its serene atmosphere, despite being just five minutes away from Mahé by boat. Cerf Island measures just 1 km (0.6 miles) in length, and is completely free from cars. The beautiful beach which borders the island acts as a 'road' of sorts, allowing you to walk (barefoot) to some of Cerf Island's best spots, including the island's two restaurants. One of these hotels is at l'Habitation, and the other is at the Cerf Island Resort. There's also a small scuba diving and snorkelling school on the island.

Due to its proximity to the main island of Mahé, this hotel is particularly popular with travellers visiting the Seychelles. Cerf Island is just 5 minutes away from the main island, and the boat transfers between the islands several times a day, allowing you to stay on Cerf and visit Mahé, complete with its colourful market in the capital. Mahé also offers a number of beaches for you to enjoy. Many of our customers love the mixture of peace and serenity on Cerf, and the accessibility of the lively main island. "Those who want to visit Mahé should stay on Cerf Island", they say.

That's not to say Cerf Island has nothing to offer. Far from it, the island has a perfect location in the middle of a tropical lagoon. L'Habitation hotel is a former coconut plantation, and has a small, but excellent, beach-side restaurant, known for its great international cuisine and its traditional Creole buffet (served at least once a week for dinner). The price for Christmas and New Year's Eve included the gala dinner. The high-class finish of the hotel is very modern, and the enormous value for money is rare for the Seychelles. This is the main reason for our special recommendation of L'Habitation.

The hotel's boat runs several times a day between Mahé (Eden Island Jetty) and Cerf Island:

From Eden Island to Cerf Island :
08h00 (only for arrival), 10h30 (5 Euro per person), 14h30 (free), 16h30 (free), 18h00 (only for late arrival)
From Cerf Island to Eden Island :
05h30 and 07h30 (only for early departure), 09h15 (free), 13h00 (free), 15h30 (5 Euro per person), 17h30 (only for late departure)

The boat schedule and prices are subject to change.

Activities and specials:

  • The small canoe rental belonging to the hotel allows you to explore the Marine Park and its small islands.
  • Boat trips to the heavenly Moyenne Island, including a Creole island buffet, can be booked in the vicinity of the hotel.
  • Snorkelling fanatics can begin at the hotel beach, where snorkelling equipment can be hired.
  • Free guided snorkeling can be organized Monday to Friday at 10h30.
  • The owners of the hotel organise boat trips to La Digue and Praslin as desired, and also offer deep-sea fishing trips.
  • Boat service to the main island of Mahé - The arrival and departure boat transfers are complimentary

The trade winds between June and October will wash up some seaweed on the island of Praslin. This may make the water a little cloudy but also provides yet more evidence that the underwater world around the Seychelles is in top health. Please note that the opposite coast of the island of Praslin does not have this effect.

Beautiful island and lovely staff and hotel

★★★☆☆ 19.11.2017

A bit of a let down with a very bad experience with one of the staff. I suggested that the owner should get rid of him if he wanted his business to grow.

★★★☆☆ 16.10.2019

Here is our opinion (unfortunately) a bit zwiegespalten, because some do not match. The food (we had booked half board) is fantastic and would have deserved 5 stars. We (3 adults) had a junior suite in their own little mini-villa next to the main house. There was in a large room a large double bed and a single "extra bed". This extra bed turned out to be a normal-narrow beach chair (made of wicker), on which one had laid a rather thin mattress. We were only there for 2 nights - for this short time our son could arrange this rather uncomfortable sleeping accommodation - but we would not want to do a longer holiday under these conditions. It is a pity that in the large bathroom en suite "only" a large corner bath is. That looks nice, but is not well suited for showering. The beach chairs on the site are partly very old and should be repaired / exchanged. Despite the usual heavy rains, the lounger cushions remain on the loungers all day, so that it then comes here to unsightly / unhealthy mold. The pool is very nice with great views of the sea. The staff in the restaurant are very attentive and friendly - at the reception the interest in the guest is not really strong.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
