Fit for a prince - North Island hosted Prince William and Princess Catherine on their royal honeymoon in 2011.
Uninhabited for over 30 years, the ethos behind the creation of this acclaimed eco-tourism hideaway (which is just 2.5kms long and 1km wide) is to turn the environmental clock back 200 years through the rehabilitation and gradual re-introduction of many of the endangered Seychelles species. There are five members of staff to each guest – and your every wish will be attended to by your very own ‘Man Friday’. North Island is accessible via an exhilarating 15 minute helicopter flight north-west of Mahé.
Lovingly handcrafted wood, local stone and glass with a thatched roof – separated into different areas for eating, relaxing, sleeping, stargazing and of course, pampering – ‘in-villa’ treatments are just part of the course!
Sunken baths, indoor and outdoor showers, day-beds in muslin-draped gazebos, slatted wooden decks leading to a private plunge pool, direct beach access to the ‘softest of soft’ white sand.
The cuisine is light, fresh, healthy and ‘herby’ – a combination of the day’s fish catch with the fruit, vegetables and spices grown on the island. Defying convention, there is no menu – simply a conversation about your preferences with the chef. This unique culinary experience is complemented by an impressive wine cellar which showcases some of the world’s best wines.
