The entire experience at Alphonse was really wonderful. The staff all around from diving center, management, restaurant/bar and fishing guides are great. True teamwork. The fishing on St Francois is spectacular and also offshore. I went with wife and two kids who fished a bit with me, did a few dives and had a great time. This is not a...

Many people think Alphonseis just about fishing, but the guys are making it so much more. Bike tours, island conservation walks, wild dolphin safari's, daily snorkels, and then there is the dive team! It is not the number of things you can do that make this place so special but the way you do them. The staff come to bar...

The accommodation and service at Alphonse Island Resort are exceptional. The team is very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The guide team is comprised of some of the most experienced and pleasant anglers I have ever had the pleasure to fish with. Could have caught a few more fish but that is more likely my fault than that...

Hi Chris, thank you for taking the time to pen this great review. That last paragraph is far to honest to be a fisherman......always blame the guide or the fish. We look forward to your repeat visit. Regards Gordon and the A-Team

5 years ago, I spent a fantastic week over Christmas at the Desroche Island in Seychelles. At the time the lodge at Desroche was the most luxurious accommodations in the country whose patrons were primarily fly fishermen and divers. In fact I had such a great time that as I started contemplating returning to Seychelles I enthusiastically contacted the owner...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Escape to the exquisite simplicity of a tropical island paradise; experience the raw beauty of an untouched natural sanctuary in the far reaches of the Indian Ocean, leaving behind the impositions of everyday life. The Alphonse group of atolls are considered as one of of the most pristine, untouched edens of the world, making it a nature lover's paradise. The magnificent island threesome comprising of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier lies in the very heart of the Indian Ocean as part of the Seychelles outer island group. Seven degrees South of the Equator and 400 kilometers South-West of Mahe, it is blessed with one of the world's healthiest climates, and miles of unblemished shorelines, lagoons and sea flats. HOTEL: Alphonse Island features a single exclusive resort comprising beach bungalows and villas built alongside the waters edge, each with spectacular ocean views. The 'Le Lys' central dining and bar area allows guests to socialize alongside the sparkling pool and shoreline, with cuisine offering the very best of traditional Creole creations inspired by the sensuous island atmosphere. Fresh produce farmed on the island and freshly caught fish are always on the menu, but diversity is key, including Asian inspired dishes and sensational sashimi, complimented by a wine list of distinctive variety. Freedom of movement around the island on foot or bicycle permits self-discovery of the wonders of this special place. Alphonse Island is a refuge for people looking for an authentic but comfortable island experience. FLY FISHING: Considered a fly anglers paradise, the expansive sea flats surrounding the atolls of Alphonse and St Francois provide the fly fishing experience of a lifetime. This spectacular wilderness has ten thousand acres of white sand flats, which provide easy wading and world class site fishing. The atolls are home to incredibly large populations of Bonefish, 3 different types of Triggerfish, Barracuda, Snapper, Grouper, Permit, Parrotfish, 8 species of Trevally (including the Giant Trevally), and the incomparable Milkfish. This diversity gives anglers the opportunity to target a myriad of different species during their stay. The St Francois fishery caters for just 12 fly anglers at a time to maintain exclusivity and sustainability. To ensure guests the ultimate fishing experience, an international team of knowledgeable guides and qualified managers are on hand to share their passion for this unique fishery and its environment. Anglers are transferred for the short run from Alphonse to St Francois lagoon by the 40' mother ship to where the skiffs are kept anchored. The fishing is very much tide dependent so the prevailing conditions will dictate which species you will focus on. You are then able to access the vast expanse of flats, lagoons, channels and reefs which spoil anglers in the choice of environment and species for which they would like to hunt. The accommodation at Alphonse is amongst some of the most comfortable you will encounter at any fly fishing destination in the world. GAME FISHING: The un-spoilt waters of Alphonse and St Francois Atolls are home to the most incredible variety of blue water fish species, translating into a great destination for offshore fishing. The structure and sheer drop-offs are ideal for attracting a variety of pelagic species that can be caught on fly as well as conventional trawling methods. Fish like Sailfish, Wahoo, Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado can be challenged on any given day. Anglers can choose to either spend a half or full day targeting some of the hard fighting fish on offer. Due to our conservation minded policies, no conventional angling is permitted next to or on the reef that surrounds our majestic paradise, which helps preserve its unique abundance. ... more   less
