Even if its only 4 nights. YOU must go here. This is Paradise all rolled into one. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven.

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). Our villa was on a seaside cliff... More

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

Everything is organised so as to keep the guests satisfied whilst maintaining and restoring the integrity of the island's wildlife and vegetation.
