Perfection. The level of natural beauty on this stunning island gives it a pretty serious advantage, but it is the unrivalled attention to detail which truly separates North Island from other holiday destinations. From the moment the chopper breaches the peaks of the jungle-strewn hilltops and those crystal clear waters zoom into view, you get your first real hint of... More

Private, exclusive, LUXE, 5 star in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Albeit not easy to reach, especially from LA. We had to fly through London then Nairobi, but it was unlike anything I have ever seen. Daily massages, warm water scuba with the sharks & turtles.

We have spent one week on North Island. It is an expensive place, but the privacy you get with this ecological Robinsoe Crusoe concept is worth the price tag. The two beaches (north and south beach) are spectacular and you choose your beach depending on wind and sun exposure. You move on the island using your electric club car or... More

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
