A truly unique place where there are 11 villas but you feel like you have the island to yourself. Unfortunately while we were there, we barely had sunshine... but we took advantage of the spa and the peace and quite. This place has no menu... you order and eat & drink whatever you like. But that was a bit of a problem for us. For example they asked us around lunch time what we would like for dinner (so they can obtain the products off-island if necessary). We said we would like lobster, for example. Then they ask... how? with what? what type of sauce or dressing? This just got to be too much for us! We are no chefs and had a hard time coming up with good menus! I would rather have a good restaurant with innovative and tasty menu options.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Surrounded by a turquoise haven of unspoiled oceans filled with sea life, North Island is a spectacular tropical retreat that epitomises barefoot luxury. Miles from the bustle of daily life, you will be coaxed into relaxation and indulgence within this paradise. With only 11 individually handcrafted luxurious villas shaded by lush vegetation and the white sands of the beach but a step away, privacy is at its utmost. A lounge, dining room and library, scenically located health spa and gym, and rim-flow pool are all set on a gigantic outcrop with fabulous views over the clear, warm waters. A sunset bar and restaurant are tucked away on the western side of the island. This rare sanctuary where natural habitats are being rehabilitated will inspire and touch you. Did you know?Since our inception we have been rehabilitating the natural habitat of the island and reintroducing critically endangered Seychelles fauna and flora – known as 'the Noah's Ark Project'.Cradled between three gigantic outcrops, North Island comprises 210 hectares of lush tropical vegetation, coconut palms and takamaka trees surrounded by pristine beaches.Activities include scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing, boating, walking, and biking. On the ocean floor, hard and soft corals are circled by an endless array of colourful fish, such as spotted eagle rays, parrotfish, round ribbontail rays and white-tip reef sharks. Green and hawksbill turtles emerge to nest on our beaches in growing numbers. ... more less
