Le Repaire Boutique Hotel  

Your island home-from-home

This small and welcoming beachfront hotel makes a charmingly unpretentious base for exploring picturesque La Digue.

Set in leafy gardens on a sheltered west-coast beach with views of Praslin in the distance, Le Repaire has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere that will appeal to families and couples. If you’re looking for a wealth of facilities, you won’t find them here – though there are free kayaks to use and bicycles to hire. A stay here is about lounging by the sea or one of the two small pools, delectable sundowner cocktails on the sand, and not resisting the desserts at the excellent Italian restaurant. If you want to venture further, the village centre is a short stroll away along traffic-free lanes, while two wheels will enable you to reach local highlights such as the Instagram-worthy Source d’Argent beach.

Why we love Le Repaire Boutique Hotel

  • It’s an unexpected place to find a fully-fledged Italian restaurant, but its pizzas, seafood dishes and thoughtful kids’ menu hit the spot

  • You can watch the sun go down while sipping something from the inventive cocktail list conjured up at the delightful little beach bar

  • If you want a break from the pools and the beach, you can take one of the hotel’s kayaks for a gentle scenic paddle along the shore

  • It’s small enough to feel as much like a private home as a hotel, with an appealing personal touch to the service

Restaurant
A menu of Italian classics, from pizzas to indulgent desserts, mingled with a handful of more locally flavoured fish dishes has helped to make this a popular place with guests and other island visitors.

A signature rum-based La Digue Sunset cocktail, sipped on the sand as the sun sinks slowly into the sea, is an experience not to be missed.
