February 2017 – In celebration of Women’s Month, North Island invites ladies to enjoy a holistic wellness experience on North this March. Set in the natural and inspiring beauty of the Seychelles, North Island offers a sanctuary for relaxation, reflection and reconnection as well as a bespoke all-inclusive offering, tailored to suit the personal wellness requirements of each and every guest.
Travelling to North Island, guests can reset both body and mind and depart feeling rested, refreshed and healthier on all levels. Each stay begins with a complimentary spa treatment and throughout their stay guests can enjoy complimentary morning yoga classes for the perfect start to a day on North. Private yoga classes are available at any time of the day and anywhere on the Island – from the air-conditioned Gym to the privacy of the villas, or on any one of the beautiful beaches. The Gym is also fully-equipped with state-of-the-art Technogym machines and free weights.
Located on the granitic slopes of Spa Hill, the Spa is a place of exquisite natural beauty and timeless relaxation with views as therapeutic as the treatments themselves. Ladies are invited to a private consultation with North Island’s skilled therapists where they can discuss the treatment menu and personalise a spa wellness programme to meet their specific needs. Guests can enjoy anything from a full-body Free-Style massage that uses a combination of massage techniques tailored to guests’ focus areas, to a signature Thalgo treatment that uses marine products which draw on the health and beauty benefits from the depths of the ocean.
Healthy living on North Island is coupled with nutritious, flavourful menus that are custom-designed to guests’ dietary requirements. Our Chef’s suggestions are rooted in fresh, seasonal and relevant produce including organic herbs, tropical fruit and vegetables from the Island garden. Our Chefs are available for private cooking lessons in the Kitchen or Villa, so ladies can leave with new tips and recipes to work into daily life at home. There is also an opportunity to spend time with our Bartenders to create personalised smoothies, fresh juices and island cocktails.
Wellness on North Island goes beyond spa treatments, yoga classes and fresh, healthy food – it is all about the generous offering of activities and dining, the luxury of space and private-island exclusivity, all within an eco-friendly and sustainable setting. It is the perfect barefoot hideaway for women to disconnect and reconnect with nature, their loved ones, and most importantly themselves.
True luxury is uninterrupted time and an infinite sense of space and North Island provides so many choices as to how to spend it memorably. The generous array of inclusive activities range from snorkelling, diving, fishing, sunset cruises, kayaking, paddle boarding and surfing to exploring the cool and calm forest trails by foot and bicycle or simply relaxing on the powdery-white beaches. As an ecotourism destination, conscious travelers can also spend time with the Island’s Environmentalists and rest assured that by simply travelling to North Island, they are making a significant contribution to its intensive ‘Noah’s Ark’ conservation project.
North Island is the ultimate paradise for ladies to celebrate international Women’s Day. Some 30km from the main island of Mahé, Seychelles, North Island is one of the most exclusive private islands in the world. It unashamedly aims to provide the very best in privacy, location, accommodation, services, facilities and experience. Its 11 Villas have been built using, where possible, materials reaped from the rehabilitation process. In doing this the aim has been to capture the essence of “barefoot luxury”.
