This hotel review is a translation from the French published on our French site, Easyvoyage.com.
It is located south-west of Mahé, in Anse Boileau bay, 12 miles from Victoria, the Seychelles' capital. Expect 15 minutes for transfers from the airport, located about 5 miles away.
A small unpretentious establishment and full of charm, L'Auberge d'Anse Boileau is mostly renowned for its Creole cuisine. Its restaurant, "Chez Plume", is filled every night with guests who come to savour its home made specialities in a friendly setting. A destination worth discovering by fine gastronomes!
L'uberge d'Anse Boileau comprises 9 Creole style bungalows distributed around an exotic garden. It is not a big site but it is full of charm and constitutes an excellent pied-a-terre for those wishing to tour Mahé island. In the extension of the reception there is a bar decorated with multicoloured fish and an excellent restaurant with Creole specialities sheltered under a canvas tarpaulin. A road separates the establishment from the beach of Anse Boileau.
With minimal decoration and rattan furniture, the rooms offer comfort limited to a ceiling fan. All have a small veranda overlooking the garden and a small bathroom with shower. Two family rooms, equipped with a double bed, a bunk bed and a bathtub are also available. The guests will find a telephone and safe at the reception.
Attracting many guests and Seychellois, the restaurant, "Chez Plume", is considered as one of the best Creole restaurants in the Seychelles. Open only in the evening, it allows you to savour, in a simple but typically Creole setting, cunning specialities like bat terrine, ginger crab, curry chicken or again passion fruit soufflé. A real treat, with prices tailored for all purses.
The hotel is separated from the large beach of Anse Boileau by the main road going around the island. Covered by coarse white sand, this beach has remained feral. Therefore, unnecessary to look for deckchairs or mattresses there. Its large size, allows you to isolate yourself easily, while sheltering under takamakas. From November to March, North-West trade winds bring back algae to the shoreline.
