There is no outdoor lighting (battery-free torches are provided), no air-conditioning, no fridges or TVs in the rooms. The lodge is simple, but comfortable, the food is wholesome, not 'gastronomique'. However, the nature, the beaches and the ocean are amazing. Snorkelling, kayaking, deep sea fishing and nature walks/boat trips are all available. 60 miles from Mahé, reached by daily flights.
This isn't for everyone, but if you are happy to share your space with the natural world, then you will love it.
