North Island is absolute paradise pure and simple. All the amazing pictures and reviews cannot convey the experience you will have at this place. The magic goes beyond the amazing views, the privacy, the delicious food and the phenomenally luxurious villas. There is something about this place that just can't be put into words. Their approach to dining of "any venue, any menu, any time" goes far beyond what one would experience at any other resort. The chef came to us and asked us what types of foods we liked and disliked and at every meal he prepared something unique that blew us away. The resort is essentially an ecological project by Wilderness Safaris to rehabilitate North Island and bring it back to the way it once was. The team has achieved great success and we felt honoured to be part of it. Every night the lovely staff offer discussion/presentations about different aspects of the island. All of the staff without exception were incredibly nice!
- 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
