As you might expect, La Digue is a small island, located within the inner islands of the Seychelles. It’s a very popular destination to visit for its famous beaches with crystal clear waters and magnificent granite formations, as well as its many nature trails and unique, endemic wildlife.
Therefore, it’s certainly worth staying at least a night or two on the island if you want to get the most out of your visit.
For an island of only 3.9 square miles in size (9.9km²), you’ll find that La Dique has a huge selection of hotels and resorts to choose from. In terms of choosing the best area or region for where to stay, this isn’t too important on La Digue. That’s because you can get almost anywhere on the island within 30 minutes by bicycle.

This comprises of two adjacent villages called L’Union and La Passe. Here, visitors will find a variety of hotels, luxury resorts and self-catering lodges to choose from. This region is also within walking distance to highlights like the L’Union Estate and the incredible Anse Source D’Argent.

Best Mid-Range La Digue Hotels
Hotel Chateau St Cloud
Chateau St Cloud is where I stayed on La Digue and I can personally recommend it as one of the best accommodation options on the island.
This three-star hotel is perfect as a mid-range option as the location is excellent– just a little out from the main area on a quiet street that is close enough to both the incredible south-west beaches and the port. The staff are all very accommodating and the buffet breakfast is. The rooms are very spacious and the hotel even has a beautiful pool and fully-stocked bar.
This historic chateau is one of the first buildings on the island. It was first constructed as the plantation house of a large vanilla farm during the Napoleonic Wars. These days, it’s been reinvigorated and expanded to serve as one of the best accommodations available on the island.
