Bird Island Lodge is the only hotel on the island and apart from the guests and staff, there are no other human inhabitants - just one million plus seabirds! Bird Island Lodge offers a unique blend of hospitality, relaxation and simplicity in a non-sophisticated and natural environment.
The main hotel building with the reception, lounge, restaurant and bar is situated a couple of minutes walk from the airstrip where guests arrive on the only flight each day.
Twenty four, simple but very comfortable individual chalets nestle amongst what remains of the islandís old coconut plantation. Each has a king-sized bed, large shower room and separate toilet, lounge corner and spacious patio overlooking the gardens to the sea beyond.
The buffet style restaurant serves local cuisine in an informal setting using mostly fresh produce including fresh fish and vegetables from the island.
The lodge has no swimming pool - thereís no need, the superb beach is just a few footsteps away, offering excellent calm swimming facilities. There are plenty of activities and excursions to ensure that every guest is entertained. Simple entertainments are a game of pool in the lounge, table tennis in the garden or simply settle down with a good book from the library. Guests are able to experience the islandís pristine natural habitat by taking a guided nature tour. Due to its proximity to the Seychelles Continental Shelf, there are also excellent opportunities for snorkelling, game fishing and glass-bottom boat tours.
