Le Domaine De L'Orangeraie is a short electric buggy transfer from La Digue Jetty, where the ferry from Praslin arrives. It is close to all that La Digue has to offer in terms of local shops and restaurants and the best way to explore the island is by bicycle, which are provided to all guests staying here on a complimentary basis. The 45 villas have a zen style, with lots of natural, earthy tones, unique features and outdoor showers or bathrooms. The 31 Villas de Charme, 3 Villa de Charme 'Elegance' and the presidential villa have been built into the hillside, amongst the vegetation, giving them a tree house feel, overlooking the natural surroundings. All of them are light, simple and elegant and have flawless attention to detail. Located at the top of the peak, surrounded by large granite rocks, is the Eden Rock Wellness Centre and Spa offering its own range of wellness products and views over the lagoon below. There are two restaurants, one serving gastronomic seafood and the other offering barefoot seafront dining, a lounge bar and pool bar, an infinity swimming pool and a boutique.
Note: Bicycle helmets are not provided and therefore, should you choose to cycle around the island, it is recommended that you take your own.
