De 115 eilanden van de Seychellen verschillen enorm in grootte, sommigen slechts een stipje in de oceaan. Behalve de hoofdeilanden zijn er veel resorts die het 'one island, one resort' concept hanteren. Ze variëren van eersteklasse natuurresorts tot exclusieve 'escapes' waar alles draait om decadent genieten. Dit alles wordt omlijst door een unieke (onderwater) natuur.

"A magical Island spoilt by poor management"

   17-02-2018
My husband visited Bird Island 35 years ago and was keen to share the wonderful experience with me. Sadly we were disappointed. The island itself is magical but the Lodge is dismal with a distinct air of "take it or leave it". The chalets offer no privacy, are shabby and not well maintained nor properly cleaned. The food is abysmal and the chef is clearly operating on a limited budget - breakfast comprised fruit, plain yogurt only, eggs only and the smallest pieces of toast imaginable. Lunch and dinner were either chicken or frozen fish - namely Bonito -made into either a curry or fish balls. Upon querying the lack of fresh fish as advertised on the website, we were informed by the manager that they were no longer able to purchase fish from the local fishermen and so resorted to buying wholesale frozen fish from Mahe. However miraculously the next day a beautiful freshly grilled fish appeared for dinner and the next day fishermen were seen on the beach delivering Tuna!! Our fellow guests were grateful to us for complaining! On the plus side, Robby the naturalist and Jenny the owner of the farm and curio shop on the beach were a delight.

"The island is lovely, a place for people who love nature and empty sandy beaches"

   10-02-2018
This was our second visit and we enjoyed it just as much as the first. We love Bird Island for its beauty, the white sandy beach surrounding the whole island where you rarely meet another person, the wildlife including the millions of birds- a real get away from it all experience. The flight on a little 20 seater plane is fun, you felt immediately that you are embarking on an adventure. The welcome is warm, Jessie especially is good at making you feel at home. The bungalows(25 of them only) are spacious with a four poster bed surrounded by mosquito nets, a separate toilet and shower room with hot water. There are sitting areas inside and out and a desk so it is quite comfortable. No AC but there is a good fan above the bed and the lots of windows which could be left open to air the room. We agree that the birds are noisy at night but we did not mind them, the birds are why you go there. We also encountered a number of giant tortoises and saw turtles swimming in the aqua sea. We snorkelled off the beach and saw a good variety of fish. The nature walk with Robby was the highlight of our trip as he pointed out lots of nesting birds and told us a great deal about the wildlife on the island. We spent 4 nights there which we felt was about right as it gave us time to enjoy exploring the island, watch the birds roosting at night and generally chilling out. The guests were all ages and from all over the world, united by a love of nature. The food was limited to mostly chicken and fish curries with some vegetarian options. If you are a fussy eater or like me have food allergies it could be limiting. However they were very good at providing me with simple versions of the dishes that I could eat so I did not starve! This is not a luxurious experience but it is special, you feel very lucky to be able to share such a beautiful place with like minded people and the amazing wildlife. There is a programme on Netflix which features a Japanese photographer who visits glorious tropical locations, he features Bird Island for his Seychelles feature which demonstrates how absolutely stunning the Island is. We also stayed at the Hilton on Silhouette which made a good combination as it is also beautiful but more luxurious and of course much more expensive.

"Amazing place "

Beautiful small island with hotel, delicious food. The biggest attraction of the island ( for children and adults) are turtles and birds of course. Go at evening to the seaside and watch crabs. We have been there by yacht.

"Might be marmite but we love it"

   01-01-2018
We’ve been here twice before and always loved it. Some of the comments about the food etc are true (although we really enjoyed the food this time- examples being octopus curry, palm heart salad, always tasty rice and lentils with every dish- what’s not to like? I know people have high expectations these days but honestly it’s fine and you certainly won’t starve) and anyway the food’s not why you’d come here- it’s the isolation and the wildlife. The wildlife is great- all the birds are not exactly tame but are unafraid. It’s noisy at night due to the birds they NEVER shut up! And there is one bird that sounds just like a car alarm- didn’t bother us at all we just got the giggles every time it went off! Also the geckos are more noisy than you’d think- they squeak! If you’re not cool with that you will need earplugs. And if your sleep is broken, so what, just have a little power snooze after lunch! We loved watching the lizards catching the bugs in our room and occasionally squabbling with each other and the Indian Mynah birds trying to puzzle out how to steal our crisps whilst we were lying in bed! We didn’t have a mosquito net (apparently they are available on request) and we got a couple of bites but nothing dramatic. One of the highlights for us was being asked to act as stand in midwives for a turtle. And by midwives I really mean we just stopped the other wildlife loving guests from inadvertently getting too close whilst she laid her eggs and then covered them over. The resident conservation expert (Robby) had gone to the main island and there were 2 turtles laying at the same time so we were asked by some other more experienced guests to keep any eye on one of them to ensure no-one upset her by getting too close by mistake. For us that was a rare and magical experience. We took to walking/kayaking to the top of the island to get a coconut from Jenny’s place each day. She’s a lovely person and a real character and we also bought a couple of souvenirs from her. Ask her for a germinated coconut if you’ve never had one before- it’s unusual and quite a treat. And ladies if you’re fortunate it might be her partner who chops your coconut open for you- Jenny is one lucky lady haha! ;-) We chatted with both of the owner’s sons who are the island Managers- both nice people and very interesting to chat to. I do hope that they get rid of the Pisonia tree with the sticky seeds though. It was sad to see some of the birds in distress and ok I’m not a conservationist but I believe that plant is not an indigenous species? There are a couple of fittings and fixtures that are getting a bit tired and there is some truth in the comments about some (but by no means all) of the staff being a little unenthusiastic regarding chatting with the guests- it won’t stop us going back though.

"Needs a lot of TLC"

   20-12-2017
Our third visit to Bird Island and not the best I'm afraid. We stayed for 4 nights which is about the average I think and we found the chalet's and indeed all the buildings in need of some urgent maintenance. The solar panel structures outside the chalets are mostly rusted through and I would guess that half the beds had no mosquito nets. The food was probably the worst thing though and very repetitive. After saying all that I have to admit that its still a magical place to be and we will be returning. The 2 managers Nick and Alex who share the responsibility are really nice people and I'm sure they will do what is needed to pull Bird Island around, hopefully before we return. Please replace the girl on reception though as to get her face off her smart phone and to be civil we found impossible and as for a smile or a thank you, forget it.
