Desroches is the main island of the Amirante Islands, part of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles. The island is low and is covered with coconut palms and tall hardwood trees. Desroches was named by Chevalier de Roslan, commander of the ship "L'Heure du Berger," after the Chevalier des Roches, the Governor of Mauritius and Réunion from 1767 to 1772. Along its circumference of 15 km is a beach of fine sand. Conservation on the island is managed by the Island Conservation Society. The villas are discretely positioned behind natural foliage so that visitors are not aware of them when walking along the beaches.

This beautiful island is great for cycling around and soaking up the sun and local atmosphere. The walk along the beach to the local village is a secluded yet real experience. The spa is out of this world, the food is fantastic, the service tremendous and the whole atmosphere simply chilled and relaxed. There is so much to do on the island to keep everybody busy. Activities include: fly fishing, as there are lots of spots around the island for fishermen to cast out from the beach on the flats; as well as cycling and kayaking that are the best ways to explore the island.

Many use the Stand Up Paddle Boards and Canoes on demand, while snorkeling and scuba diving share world class spots with excellent fish in the reefs. Visitors often feel that they have the whole island to themselves. This is partly due to the 'less is more' mentality of the previous owners who, fortunately, resisted over-developing the small island. It is really hoped that the new owners maintain the natural and quiet beauty of this piece of heaven. The long, encircling beach and beach-crest of Desroches are of national importance for both green turtle and hawksbill turtle, particularly on the south and northeast coasts.
