We had the chance to spend 3 fantastic nights at Fregate Island. We loved our exquisite Villa with a tremendous pool from where we enjoyed sunrises and sunsets. The culinary experience under the drive of the Executive Chef, Arnaud, has been an outstanding from the originality, the flavours and its presentation. The team has been taking special care of us...

Fregate island is a wonderful island and the staff were very kind and helpful but when you look at the cost versus similar experiences (we stayed at the 4 seasons afterwards and enjoyed the whole experience far more,) Fregate falls short when really it has no excuse not to excel. The biggest ommision they made was not assigning us a... More

. . . is the best way I can sum up our recent trip to Fregate Island. I have had Seychelles on my list for 20 years, and business meetings in Dubai provided the perfect springboard for realizing a birthday present for my wife. I approached searching for a property in Seychelles with more than a small dose of trepidation.... More

I must say FIP is one of the recommended luxury hideaway to stay in Seychelles, private assistant, one buggy per villa and some private beaches are perfect to spend the day. nothing much trouble for the private assistant to deliver the ultimate service, anytime, anywhere on Island. Tell them and they will do it for you, it's what we need... More

Fregate Island ist the ultimate hideaway for urban people. We have been looking for a luxury escape - far away from stress, expectations, schedules..... and we got more than we have ever expected on Fregate Island. We are a Fan of the Le Bristol and Hotel du Cap and therefore confident with the Oetker Collection. Since the Island is managed... More

I have to say that we had the most amazing holiday we have ever had at Fregate. We had so many once in a lifetime experiences, the kids are constantly asking to return. There is no doubt it is expensive, however it is worth it in my opinion. The private beach, the 6 other beaches as well, all phenomenal. Giant... More

We've never before felt able to say of any resort that it was the ultimate, but after a few days stay at Fregate, that's the only word that could do it full justice. It's as private and naturally beautiful, as ecological and nurturing of wildlife, as indulgently luxurious and exotic as any tropical paradise you'll ever discover. This is the... More

My husband and I spent a week on Frégate Island Private for our honeymoon. I honestly do not know where to begin. Simply speaking: our dream came true!
