June 2009 – After a six-week closure, we are pleased to announce that North Island OPENS TODAY! The intensive upliftment and improvement of the island is complete and ensures that our concept of signature barefoot luxury has been enhanced and improved for all our guests.
We have focused all our attention on the existing facilities and have ensured that the island remains the private sanctuary for which it has become so well known.
Our open, natural and raw approach to architecture with its Robinson Crusoe style, which dictates a significant level of upkeep, has been renovated and touched up on various areas in our existing 11 villas, main piazza, spa, gym, boutique, activities centre, library and west beach bar. This includes thatch replacement, wood maintenance, painting of pools, touching up bathroom facilities and an element of soft refurbishing.
To further enhance our North Island wellness experience, we have added ‘technogym’ equipment to a completely revamped gym facility and Thai massage decks in each of our spa villas.
To coincide with our opening, we have furnished our helicopter pad with the necessary equipment and safety features that will now allow for night landings of registered helicopters.
With all this complete, as well as much time and effort given to our environmental upliftment, the Noah’s Ark Project, we are thrilled to open the island again – and welcome guests back to our ‘home’ where they can once again enjoy the luxury of which we are proud to be a part.
We look forward to seeing you here at North Island soon.
