Full accommodation information

This unspoilt, tropical retreat consisting of just 11 handcrafted villas set in a sanctuary of powder-soft beaches can be summed up as the perfect combination of castaway luxury with a light ecological footprint.

As featured in The Millionaires' Holiday Club, conservation is at the heart of many of the island’s activities, with exceptional dive sites and fantastic snorkelling a speciality. There are four beaches on the island, including the romantic hideaway at Honeymoon Cove, a particularly exclusive spot in which to escape.

Private and secluded villas have full butler service, a private kitchen where a chef will prepare your meals, and their own plunge pool and sala (day bed).

The resort revolves around your specific desires, manifested in the ‘no-menu’ concept which means that a chef will personally tailor your individual dinner preferences with a choice of where to dine – and with a vast wine cellar, you’ll always find the perfect accompaniment to any cuisine you request. North Island Spa is a place of extreme natural beauty, specialising in tailor-made holistic treatments that rejuvenate the mind, body and soul.

Ending your days at the West Beach Bar will complete your hours on paradise in style; where exotic cocktails are enjoyed as the sun sets into the blue ocean.  

Activities

The timeless elegance of the North Island Spa is designed to restore mind, body and soul in a lavishly indulgent environment. Spa therapists provide individual consultations to ensure everything is tailor-made to your needs. Just a few steps away along the granite outcrop you’ll find the island’s main 45-metre pool, with an edge that seems to vanish into the forest.

North Island epitomises everything you’d want from a beach holiday; in fact, these beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. Enjoy exotic drinks as you lounge on sumptuous cushions at the beautiful West Beach Bar or indulge in a romantic moment on the intimate Honeymoon Beach. Between the two you’ll find The Spot, a sala complete with beach blankets and beds – perfect for a picnic on the beach!

Head to the Activity Centre for an array of land and marine activities, such as diving, mountain biking and kayaking.

And be sure to spend some time exploring the island – bountiful ambitious conservation projects make North Island ideal for bird and turtle watching.

Entertainment

The freshest fruits of the Indian Ocean, a delicious fusion of Seychellois and international cultural influences, and the rich organic produce of North Island itself all come together to create delectable cuisine. Your dining choices are not governed by menus or set buffets, as this resort has implemented a unique ‘no menu’ concept. Let chefs design your own carte du jour every day, taking your every need and desire into account. Dine wherever you want – against a backdrop of natural granite and spectacular ocean views in the main dining area, on a pristine, secluded beach, on the pool deck or in the privacy of your own villa. All dining experiences are accompanied by exceptional wines from the vast cellar.

The hub of the island is The Piazza, a sumptuous dining area nestled beneath a large Indian almond tree. Backed by a lily pond, this laid-back lounge is open on all sides to take advantage of stunning panoramas of the bay and verdant mountain. Dine on the beach or under the upside-down casuarina tree roof.

North Island has worked hard to restore the previously abandoned and overrun island to its former glory. Now, after the ‘Noah’s Ark’ programme was created, the island prides itself on its sustainable and ecological practices for preservation.

In an effort to conserve wildlife, the local community project, Magpie Robin, encompasses a range of organisations and donations from the public to conserve local birds. Plus, this island has been a nesting site for two species of turtles that the hotel assists in preserving. Now, the island has the highest number of nesting Green Turtle of inner Seychelles.

The resort’s aim to restore the forest cover has resulted in their project to create a natural ecologically restorative environment that will be completed in 2035.

With just 11 opulent handcrafted villas on the island, all with their own butler, plus menus tailored for each guest, it’s little wonder that North Island is so bucketlist-worthy. It is perhaps, the most exclusive private island destination in the world offering consummate privacy. The resort believes that no two guests should ever be treated the same, so devoted staff will work tirelessly to ensure you’ll have the holiday of your dreams.
