Having just returned after 2 weeks vacation at The North Island, it really makes you stop and think about we are doing to this crazy world of ours. It was the 2rd visit to the Seychells, but first to North Island. North Island can simply be summed in one word, Tropical Island Escape, Its was amazing 11 villas, with over 100 staff !, (The only place I personally have found so welcoming has been The Leela, South Goa.) The attention to detail, is perfect. I consider both my wife and I foodies, although my wife is a size 10!, she likes to pick!, my self 6.2" 15 stone, enjoy my food!, the North Island caters for all. The food was first class, service faultless, every one had not only a smile on there face, but appeared to be genuinely pleased to see you, or answer any questions we had.
The privacy, peaceful setting makes the north Island a relaxing, safe, care fare hideaway!, if by chance you get a little restless, jump in a buggy for a adventure drive around Island.
As with Goa, it is worth going down to the beach, (west beach to watch the sunset).
This is not a place you will forget in a hurry. Although Im not into spas, my wife loved the spa pampering treatments. Certainly a different feeling altogether than certain other islands we have stayed on in the past. Nice View with a breeze from our villa. Could not fault, we will return.
