Two unforgettable nights of our honeymoon trip to Seychelles and Kenya. After we stayed in many ultra-luxury hotels around the world I didn't think anything could surprise me at all. But I was wrong! I will not describe all the details, because it's not important. Only to sum it up, I will say that Fregate Island it is a MUST... More

Arriving by helicopter on a glorious sunny day and being met by the General Manager and out private butler was a most auspicious introduction to the island. The grounds are very lush and tropical, the views spectacular and the villas was wonderful.

IF you are reading this review then you are probably part of the 1% of the 1% and are familiar with some of the ultra-luxury unique experiences that this beautiful planet now offers. Forget the "Aman" level and concept of luxury; this is uniquely superior. Fregate is certainly in par with any other property on the planet, but with a... More

If you have the opportunity to visit Fregate Island Private you must! With its dramatic location the whole island is infact the hotel.

Our twelve-day stay at Fregate Island Private began with a helicopter ride from the main island in the Seychelles and we were greeted with Starfruit cocktails and escorted to our villa via golf cart (please note that Starfruit costs us $3 each in the US and it takes like 50 for a drink).

It's a beautiful island, with beautiful nature, but the hotel facilities need some improvement- the place looks "dusty" , the food options are very limited. The villas are very nice and spacious but to be honest I was disappointed of the beach- the main beach - where the water is very wavy -is almost dangerous to get in. If you... More
