Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie enjoys a beautiful location on the northwest coast of La Digue, within walking distance of La Passe, the island’s main town. The best connection to La Digue is via Praslin, which takes around 45 minutes by boat and guests are then met at the jetty upon arrival for a short 5 minute transfer to the hotel. The relaxed ambience of the island and the lush tropical surrounding of the hotel make a stay at Le Domaine de L’Orangerie feel like a true island escape. A stay here also provides a nice contrast to one of the larger islands, allowing visitors to get a feel for the diversity of the Seychelles.
Accommodation at Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie is comprised of a range of luxury rooms and villas nestled into the hillside. Those with a more elevated position enjoy stunning views over the Indian Ocean, whilst those lower down the hill have the benefit of being closer to the beach and the main facilities. The hotel’s architectural style allows the villas to blend into the forest behind them and inside, contemporary style is mixed with rustic touches to create a tranquil yet homely space.
Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie offers guests a choice of restaurants and bars, with both restaurants specialising in international and Creole inspired dishes. Buffet breakfasts and dinners are served at Santosha in an al fresco setting next to the ocean, whilst Le Combava offers a la carte options. During the day, guests can relax with a drink at the Infinity Pool Bar, whilst Alambic Bar offers a selection of wines and cocktails late until the evening.
One of the highlights of Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie is undoubtedly its picturesque white sandy beach, with an offshore coral reef offering excellent snorkelling. An infinity pool overlooks the bay and the expansive sundeck provides the perfect place to watch the sun set over the ocean. Tranquillity and escapism are at the heart of a stay at Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie, and other facilities include a small spa with its own range of products and bicycle hire so that guests can explore the local area.
