Our history

Over 20 years ago, a family project came to life…

Iloha Seaview Hotel old picture

Iloha Seaview Hotel is the result of a family project which took off in 1996: Michel Jam, architect and owner of the hotel, and his wife Nanou Jam, who was in charge of the decoration and furnishings.

When the hotel opened, there were 44 rooms. Set in a 3 hectare tropical garden, there were 30 bungalows with kitchenettes and 14 bedrooms in the main building, as well as a swimming pool and a restaurant. It was mainly used by sports enthusiasts attracted by the hotel’s proximity to various activities such as surfing, paragliding and scuba-diving. These clients needed both freedom and a certain autonomy.

In the late 1990s, Iloha underwent an expansion program, with the construction of 20 additional bungalows.

2005 saw a renovation and development program, confirming its position as one of the flagships of Reunionese hotels. All forms of development were carried out in line with customer expectations, respecting the garden, the different areas of the hotel and the surrounding environment.

Visitors are charmed by this unique hotel in Reunion, assured of an experience combining nature, pleasure, wellbeing and authenticity.

In 2011, a huge expansion program got underway. 3 new buildings were constructed: an additional restaurant, a wellness area with 2 massage rooms (including one for couples) and, most notably, 16 extra bedrooms in the Guétali building, with a second swimming pool and a private lounge area.

Despite upgrading our premises and services, Iloha has retained its air of authenticity, in the image of Reunion Island itself.

Our commitment to protecting the environment


Reunion, the ‘intense island’… With its strong identity and natural heritage of unparalleled diversity, this island really is a treasure that we, as tourism professionals, have the exciting task to both promote and protect. Like all things rare, this exceptional destination boasts natural riches which are both thriving and fragile. Since the beginning, our teams have always paid great attention to the preservation of the surrounding environment.

This approach resulted in the hotel being awarded the European Eco-label for tourist accommodation services in early 2015. This certification, a first both in Reunion and Overseas France, is not an end in itself. On the contrary, it is a proud display of our strong, continued and sensible commitment which, we hope, could one day pave the way for the development of a truly sustainable tourism industry in Reunion.

It is our responsibility and our will to contribute to the preservation of what makes up our living environment and our natural resources.

We truly love Reunion Island and the Indian Ocean. Let us work together in the appreciation and protection of these unique places.
