Accommodation rating: Exceptional
Reserved for the most discerning traveller, the award-winning North Island is an exclusive retreat with just 11 private villas offering understated elegance. Each villa is 450 square metres in size featuring two bedrooms, a large marble bathroom with an indoor and outdoor shower, a kitchen and lounge/dining area and fully retracting sliding doors that lead onto the lawn in front of the villa. Outdoors on the sundeck is a private plunge pool and sala facing Anse d'Est Beach.
Resort facilities include a central dining room, lounge, library, a connoisseur's cellar, spa, gym and the Sunset Bar, which is tucked away on Grande Anse beach, on the western side of the island. Complimentary resort activities include snorkelling, shore based fishing and bicycles to explore the island. Spa treatments, day trips to Silhouette Island and yacht charters can also be arranged.
The island is dedicated to preserving nature and as such, a Noah's Ark wildlife conservation programme has been introduced. The aim is to turn the island's environmental clock back two hundred years through rehabilitation and by slowly re-introducing many of the Seychelles' critically endangered species. With this same dedication, North Island also aims to be an unspoiled tropical haven of peace and tranquillity for its guests.
Bicycle helmets are not provided and therefore should you choose to cycle around the island it is recommended that you take your own.
