Fregate Island

Fregate Island Private

Fregate Island Private offers a unique island experience... exotic, exclusive and isolated! Standing on a granite Glacis on the northern side of the Seychelles archipelago, Fregate Island has an architectural style combining design influences from the Seychellois as well as Bali and Thailand. It is only a 15 minute helicopter ride away from mainland Mahe. Boat transfers are also available certain times of the week.

16 exclusively designed villas are nestle harmoniously into their surroundings. They are high up, and access to the beaches is by stairs. 14 Villas are situated overlooking the ocean and beaches, while 2 have a sheltered grassy position, ideal for families with children. All villas are richly furnished in Thai silks and Egyptian cotton; each villa has a glass-enclosed entrance foyer, separate living room and bedroom, and two bathrooms with outdoor showers. The private wooden sun deck leads to a private pool with jacuzzi, as well as a sala with day-bed and separate dining pavilion. This picture-perfect setting is ideal for in-villa dining. You also have the possibility to dine 'anywhere, anytime' on Fregate Island Private... in the tree house, in the banana grove, on the beach or at any other location on the island which is all taken care by your private butler. On your arrival you are also spoilt to a 55 minute complimentary full body massage.

What makes Fregate so Unique is that it is home to 2200 free roaming Giant Aldabra Tortoises; a sanctuary for hundreds of endangered Hawksbill Turtles and more than 100 species of tropical birds; 7 beaches to choose from; has a charming historic chapel for your most special celebrations; an Exquisite Spa, and last but not lease the Castaway Kids Club.
