Full accommodation information

As an oasis of coconut palms nestling on a crescent-shaped, private coral island, this is a castaway’s dream come true.

Holidaying on Denis Private Island is a very special affair.

The approach is unique, the pace unhurried and the experience truly unforgettable. In fact, the owner’s motto is “the island is yours – do as you will, without disturbing others”. And you won’t be disturbed on your Seychelles holiday as mobile phone signals do not reach Denis Island, so you really have no option but to relax and unwind. However, should you wish to use them, the library houses the island’s only TV and computers with internet access. You may also access Wifi in the library free of charge.

Discover the pleasures of island living from the privacy of beautiful cottages with natural furnishings, sea-facing verandahs, outdoor showers and the option of in-room spa treatments. Guests at the resort can dine at the enchanting main restaurant which offers five-course table d’hôte menus or go for the private beach-dining options. It’s worth spending some time discovering this beautiful island and enjoying nature walks that allow you to meander along the many pathways on her shores.  

Denis Private Island comprises 23 elegant cottages nestling near the ocean shore amid lush tropical gardens.

Presentations on the island’s wildlife, history and conservation projects can also be enjoyed in the Library.

Take advantage of the Old Village craft workshops, visit the farm or meet the giant tortoise colony. Endless nature trails meander throughout the resort – perfect for a leisurely stroll. Play tennis, snooker or chess, canoe around the island or embark on an exciting excursion to another Seychelles island.

Fishing is available all year round, while the PADI Associated Dive Centre offers a wide range of courses and excursions.

Denis Island minimises wastage and uses what the island provides to emphasise sustainability. Their food is locally sourced to feed their guests. This includes milk, yogurt and cheese that is sourced from their cattle, fresh port and all fish caught in the ocean closest to the hotel, and their fruits and vegetables are island-grown.

Their vast knowledge of the local eco-system and passion to preserve their surroundings has resulted in the hotel using local materials and methods to reduce their carbon footprint. This includes using interiors and decorations made by the self-sustaining local lumber mill and carpentry workshop, which has provided wood floorings, furniture and more.
