Islands, by nature, are a manifestation of remoteness and seclusion. Intrepid adventurers in pursuit of what might be called raw luxury – the synergy of ultimate comfort and nature in its truest state – will be seduced by North Island Seychelles – known as North to regulars – the private sanctuary that forms part of a constellation of atolls making up the Seychelles Inner Islands.
Centuries ago, sailors disembarked on North Island, a 200-hectare pink-speckled granite island, and with them brought harm to the fragile wilderness through settlement practices. These days, the owners of the island have a mission: to rehabilitate the endemic fauna and flora while catering to a rising demand for extreme luxury. Giant Aldabra tortoises roam a domain, planted with takamaka and badamier trees, coco de mer palms, and carefully-controlled frangipani and guava bushes. Endemic and endangered species of birds soar above the jungle.
North is a bespoke lodge-style hotel. Eleven thatched-roof Villas emanate a luxurious aura with private plunge pools, outdoor terraces and pavilions, and oversized bathrooms, all overlooking expanses of verdant forest and golden-sand beach, not to mention an endless crystal clear turquoise ocean. Here the staff-to-guest ratio is five-to-one and care is the keyword for the pampering attention you can expect to receive. Schedules disappeared long ago and you may even order champagne at 3 am.
The cuisine is simple and exquisite. Farm-to-fork dining prevails, in line with North’s goal of sustainability; thus ingredients are sourced from the organic vegetable garden, local farms and the sea. The island’s nursery offers a magical setting for a private meal amidst rows of endemic shrubs, or you may prefer dining in your sumptuous lodgings, by the pool, or on the beach. The natural beauty being as opulent as the service is irreproachable, explains why North is on the bucket list of the world’s most discerning travellers.
Perfectly integrated into the environment, the 10 Presidential Villas at North Island Seychelles were built using 14 types of exotic wood, harvested from the island during the re-conservation efforts, as well as local stone and thatched roofs. Situated under the trees lining the beach of Anse Est (East Beach), they are ideally positioned for accessing the beach to admire the sunrise every morning.
Each villa has an area of 450 m², featuring a spacious, air-conditioned master bedroom, with a dressing room, an office, a superb bathroom including marble bathtub and shower, and an outdoor shower. A second room can be used as an office, a salon or small cinema, or even a children's room (with a supplementary fee).
These villas are equipped also with a kitchen that opens onto a lounge / dining room and a vast terrace with a private pool. A villa master will take care of everything for you, ensuring discreet and attentive service.
Capacity: 2 adults + 1 child (under 19 years).
