Tout savoir sur l'expérience
Since islands were first discovered, they have fascinated intrepid explorers and travellers. Surely you have imagined living on or owning an island in the middle of the ocean – there is something about the remoteness, or even the possibility of circumnavigating it on foot, that explains this enchantment. Adventurers in pursuit of raw luxury will find what they are looking for at Fregate Island Private, the very exclusive resort found on the private Seychelles island of Frégate, christened by the 18th century explorer, Lazare Picault, due to the abundant bird species found there bearing the same name.
These days, giant Aldabra tortoises roam the domain planted with the Takamaka, cashew, and almond trees. Over a hundred species of birds take flight above the jungle, while Hawksbill tortoises nest on the deserted beaches. This sanctuary island is steeped in history, from its plantation-style house containing a wine cellar and collection of aged rums, to the lovely Creole chapel where couples may hold an intimate wedding ceremony.
Nestled amongst the indigenous forest are sixteen gorgeous villa residences, exuding sublime opulence – from a private infinity pool and Jacuzzi, to an outdoor pavilion and spacious terraces – and overlooking acres of verdant jungle and golden beaches. Guests may also sojourn at the lavish ensemble of villas within Banyan Hill Estate, set upon a secluded peninsula, where personal chef and private butler will ensure your dreams are fulfilled. Finally, those wishing to live out their tropical island fantasy, may reserve the entire domain for a truly memorable stay.
The cuisine is simple and delightful; its produce sourced from carefully nurtured gardens and the sea. Faithful in the principle of the authenticity it cultivates, Fregate assures a farm-to-fork approach to its cuisine. As the island’s creeks and lagoons provide fabulous backdrops for your meals, you are invited to dine anywhere you wish: high up in a banyan tree house, at the Yacht Club or on the plantation, upon any of the seven beaches, in either of the two restaurants, aboard a sunset cruise, in your private villa. For a fabulous evening cocktail, visit Mont Signal, for stunning panoramas seen from the highest point on the island.
Fregate Island Private, a small ethereal paradise, offers those lucky enough to land on its shores, a genuine and unique experience – a perfect island retreat.
