An Exclusive Escape

By September 19, 2019 Destination, North Island

Escape to North Island, one of the Seychelles’ most exclusive private-island hideaways. Situated 30km north of Mahé, North Island offers complete privacy for an unrivalled romantic retreat or unforgettable family holiday. Only eleven ocean-view villas are surrounded by sheer natural beauty, where luminous white sands, granite peaks and turquoise waters provide infinite opportunity for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Those in search of an exhilarating getaway can dive into activities that range from fishing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkelling and scuba diving (including full PADI certification) to guided hikes, tree planting and other activities with the Environment Centre. For a restorative experience, the island’s spa invites guests to immerse themselves in a holistic journey, awakening the senses with luxurious treatments to rejuvenate body, mind and soul.

Our team delights in creating romantic experiences that spoil and surprise, from private picnics on Honeymoon Beach to tailormade tastings in the Wine Cellar, anything and everything can be arranged for couples on the island. While kids will fall in love with our dedicated children’s play area, with a jungle gym, trampoline, toys and an arts and crafts area. An array of kids activities will be planned as part of a bespoke ‘Beach Buddy’ itinerary, based on the preferences of each child. Personalisation and attention to detail define North Island’s service standards.

“You have all mastered the art of attention to detail!

Kiki is a gem! He anticipated every need and made suggestions that made our stay extra special…Diane is so friendly and takes care of everything before we even ask for it…Fiorello is better than any other bartender at any bar we have been to all over the world. He has the knack of going into your mind and knowing exactly what your tastes are.

The staff everywhere is warm, welcoming and helpful. We felt like part of a great family!”

Inspiring cuisine provides a taste of the island, with a sustainable dining concept centred around the ocean’s bounty and the land’s fertile gardens. Fresh, flavourful dishes are paired with fine vintages recommended by the Piazza’s Sommelier and personalised cocktails are prepared by talented bartenders, best enjoyed at West Beach Bar over spectacular Seychelles sunsets.

What makes North Island truly unique is its barefoot-luxury atmosphere, which affords our guests a rare connection with nature. Committed to conservation, North Island is a sustainability success story where the environment has been rehabilitated into a pristine sanctuary for guests and endangered species alike.
