North Island Resort, Seychelles
This is one of those rare places that is revered across the planet as the crème de la crème of private islands, synonymous with seclusion, romance and breathtaking natural beauty. At North Island, barefoot-luxe meets unspoilt authenticity wrapping the whole experience in almost unheard of levels of style and service. We could use the ‘Robinson Crusoe’ analogy but that doesn’t even scratch the surface here. A 20 minute helicopter ride skims you over the impossibly iridescent turquoise of the Indian Ocean to a place where the outside world ceases to exist. Uninhabited for over 30 years, the ethos behind this acclaimed eco-hideaway is to turn the environmental clock back 200 years through the rehabilitation and gradual re-introduction of many of the endangered Seychelles species.
North Island Resort
Your home is one of only 11 villas, over-generous in size, gloriouslyappointed with Seychellois thatched roofs and expansive areas for sleeping, eating, relaxing, star gazing and just being. Sunken baths, indoor and outdoor showers, day beds draped with billowing muslin and a private plunge pool that leads to the softest sands you are ever likely to step on just add to the sense of surrealism. With five members of staff to each guest – your very own Man Friday will ensure every possible need is met.
Defying tradition, the dining concept here is unique; there are no menus, just a conversation with the chef about your own personal preferences. From the freshest home-grown produce to the abundant seafood, all complemented by a world-class wine cellar, you can also choose when and where you dine.
The clean air, overwhelming scenery and four breathtaking beaches – one at each point of the compass and one sheltered for each season – will reinvigorate your body and soul – whilst the island’s natural habitat benefits from a unique ‘Noah’s Ark’ conservation programme. Pampering spa treatments take place in the privacy of your villa, with thoughtfully considered concepts to choose from – ensuring you receive that you need, when you need it. The natural focal point is the Island Piazza, where sublime buildings cluster around a magnificent Indian Almond Tree – whilst the wonderful West Beach Bar, tucked away on the island’s western beach, is a great spot for private barefoot dinners.
