The remote North Island in the Seychelles had been uninhabited for over 30 years until some of the world leaders in authentic eco-tourism invested in the island to turn it into a sanctuary for both discerning travellers and wildlife.
Accommodation & Facilities
A team of craftsmen has created a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ luxury barefoot paradise unlike any other. Each of the eleven private villas is the epitome of understated elegance and serenity. The villas are all built entirely from natural materials including wood, local stone and thatch, and comprise a bedroom, huge en-suite bathroom, outside shower, veranda and private pool. Facilities include a central dining area, lounge, library, spa and gym. There is a main pool built into a granite outcrop and a secluded bar tucked away on the west side of the island.
Wildlife & Activities
There is a wide range of activities on offer. You can explore the island by foot, by bike or on a motorised island buggie. Watersports including sea-kayaking, diving and snorkelling are available, and guests can also take excursions to nearby islands or enjoy some fly fishing.
