Dear bendhiaw Thank you very much for sharing such a glowing review of our island home. We certainly do share your view that Denis Private Island is like no other island in Seychelles: As a family owned, working island, Denis Private Island offers so much more than just a luxury resort experience - genuine Creole hospitality, an extensive and sustainable island farm, impressive conservation credentials and our remarkable location in Seychelles' remote northern territory (which offers some of the best fishing and scuba diving amongst the inner islands) really sets us apart from other Indian Ocean private islands, and keeps many of guests coming back year after year. Thank you for sharing this with fellow travellers. We hope that this will not be your last visit to our unique island sanctuary, and that it will not be too long until we are able to welcome you back to Denis Island, once again. Safe travels! Best island regards, Your Denis Island Team

This is one of the top private island hotels in the world. Everything about it makes spending even just a few days unforgettable. From its size (big enough to hold a small vibrant Seychellois community, but small enough to enjoy by bicycle), to the colonial elegance of the rooms, to the incredible conservation activities that offer a unique glimpse at sea, land and air life, to the pristine white beaches, to the incredible sea at the edge of the drop-off, here you can touch the glorious luxury of unplugging from digital distractions and reconnecting with the earth and yourself. Each cottage and villa, situated with great care to guarantee absolute privacy, is tastefully decorated echoing Seychelles’ colonial past and finely furnished with wood and objects crafted in the island’s carpentry. The bathrooms open to a private courtyard with open-air shower and separate entrance for when you return from the beach. Food is world-class, attentively adjusting to specific preferences. Fantastic and professional hospitality is offered by all the staff 24/7. Don’t forget to book your excursions on land or at sea, from scuba, fishing, kayaking, or just simply relax and let yourself be pampered in your room with a Spa treatment. Don’t forget to ask for some fresh citronelle (lemon grass) to brew and enjoy for a well deserved break on your private verandah!

Dear Riccardo What a pleasure it was to read your very thorough review - thank you for taking the time to share it with the travelling community. We were so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your time on the island, and how much you appreciated each of the nuisances that make a stay on Denis Private Island unique to any other island retreat in the world! Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed your spacious, beachfront cottage and the privacy that guests can enjoy from their ocean-facing garden or private beachfront. Our cottages have been designed to blend in seamlessly with the natural surroundings and to offer our guests effortless indoor-outdoor living. Even our spa therapies take place exclusively outdoors - or in your private wellness pavilion, when you book our Beachfront Spa Cottage - to the relaxing sounds of the waves and birds in the treetops. We were also pleased to learn how much you appreciated the food served at our restaurant. As you know, most of the ingredients used in our kitchen are sourced directly from the island farm, so their freshness and quality is assured. We believe it is important to fuel our guests with wholesome, seasonal, organic dishes, so that they have plenty of energy to fully enjoy the range of island activities and adventures available to them. We hope that it will not be too long until we are able to welcome you back to Seychelles and back to Denis Private Island. Until then, safe travels and keep dreaming of palm trees! Best island regards, Your Denis Private Island Team

Dasun and Bayne, the breakfast, lunch and dinner was world-class , adjusted to our preferences ! The garden and beachside of our Beachfront Spa Villa was maintained perfectly by Justus, the rooms cleaned twice a day , spotless! All staff very kind and attentive and discret. This was our 3rd stay on Denis , 9 nights was fine for us this time and we felt our 2nd-home has even improved due to the new pool addition. Great for a daily swim as the sea was a bit rough in late july/early august at our beach side Bois Blanc. We were the only guests at this beach during our stay for the first 8 nights. What a privilege! You hear only the breaking waves , the sound of the birds , the wind blowing smoothly through the Casuarinas trees and palms , constantly during day and night. There were between 6 and 15 guests during our stay , privacy at its best. Heaven can wait , we will be back!

Dear Dasun and Bayne In the hospitality industry there is no greater compliment than a return guest, and we are absolutely delighted to read that, after your third trip to the island, Denis Private Island feels like your second home! We're so pleased that you enjoy the new pool as much we do - this new addition provides yet another comfortable space to relax outdoors and appreciate the ocean view, as well as offering an alternate swimming option for our guests. We were also pleased to hear that you appreciated our discreet and friendly service and the world-class cuisine prepared by our chefs, using farm-fresh ingredients from the island farm. We hope that it is not too long until we are able to welcome you back to your island home for another private paradise escape, surrounded by nature. Safe travels! Best island regards, Your Denis Private Island Team
