North Island

North Island 

Some 30km from the main island of Mahe, North Island enjoys private isolation. The Island is located on 507 acres and boasts 4 secluded white sandy beaches and three magnificent granite mountains which dominate the Island. The Island is a perfect setting -  A Noah’s Ark, where natural habitats have been rehabilitated and endangered Seychelles fauna and flora re-introduced, and given a place to regenerate - In the same way that North Island is a sanctuary for regeneration of the Seychelles endangered species, so it is for it’s guests – an unspoiled haven of barefoot peace, luxury and tranquillity. Access to North Island is by a 15 minute helicopter ride or by private boat charter. The Island has no jetty so we do not recommend boat transfers.

Dining on North Island is in itself an activity. The Piazza, located on the main beach, offers a beautiful setting for lunch and dinners; West Beach, with its glorious sunsets, is a true favourite amongst guests and offers delightful cocktails served with salads, tapas style barbeque snacks and pizza’s. And if you wish to stay in the comfort of your villa, the in –villa dining is all about home cooked comfort foods either suggested by the Chef – or off your own choice. The natural beauty of North Island also blends itself to many other dining options as there are so many beautiful and secluded spots – just perfect for a romantic moment for two, sundowners at the Cross to a picnic on Honeymoon beach. All options are specifically arranged for each guest to enjoy in absolute privacy. Children of all ages are welcome on North Island. It’s a wonderful place to explore and to enjoy as a family. A wide range of activities on land and in the water are designed and supervised by expert and trained staff.

On this beautiful Island there are 11 guest villas each exquisitely designed to celebrate nature and offer an authentic home-from-home ambience. The result is a special destination that touches the lives of its guests and inspires them along after they have left. Ten Presidential Villas are nestled discreetly in the tree line facing Anse d'east Beach and are only a few steps away from the beach. Each is totally self-contained and boasts a luxuriously proportioned master bedroom, changing room area and a huge en-suite bathroom with a Balinese marble bath and indoor and outside showers, a kitchenette that leads off the expansive sun deck and covered lounge area, a separate lounge area that can become a second bedroom in the Presidential Villas. A gorgeous private plunge pool and sala completes your sanctuary on North Island. The final villa, Villa North Island (Villa 11), is located at the end of the beach. It is larger than the Presidential villas with a design that incorporates the incline of the landscape at the end of the bay; it accommodates 2 guests only and the views from this villa are truly extraordinary.

There are no rules on North Island – no dress codes – no specific meal times. The rules are the ones you make yourselves: your schedule is only as full as you wish it to be, and the dress code reflects your own personal style.
