North Island North Island Seychelles - Accommodation


Each Villa has two bedrooms, a main bedroom and a second bedroom. Whilst the Villa is primarily occupied byone or two guests, they may have a requirement to use the second bedroom for children nineteen years and younger and this is available at an additional cost. Alternatively, the second bedroom can be converted into a study for guests staying in the master bedroom. Each Villa has been individually handcrafted by Seychellois and African craftsmen on the Island. The principle materials used were wood, local stone, glass and thatched roofs. 

All this combines to form a warm and inviting space that offers guests that rare opportunity to relax completely. Each Villa is completely self-contained and is raised over a metre off the ground to catch the cooling island breezes.A luxuriously proportioned master bedroom with change-room and writing area leads onto a large en-suite bathroom with marble bath and two showers, one indoor and one outdoor. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms have overhead “punkah punkah” fans. The fully retracting sliding doors allow for uninterrupted views onto the lawns and the turquoise seas in front of each Villa. There is satellite television, a DVD/CD systemand Internet access. The kitchen leads off the lounge/dining area. A private plunge pool and sala are the finishing touches in this private sanctuary.

In siting the Villas, we placed Villas 1 to 10 discretely in the tree-line, facing onto Anse d'est Beach. Villa 11 is completely unique in it’s siting. Villa 11’s layout has been designed to accommodate the incline along the extreme northern side of the Anse d'est Beach and is secretly tucked away in the Takamaka forest. The beach views from this Villa is truly spectacular from every angle and it is this, together with the unique manipulation of the design, which separates this remarkable Villa from the rest. Villa 11 is referred to as Villa North Island.

Each Villa offers you:

  • Elements of design and style in the Villas that epitomise the concept of barefoot luxury.
  • Each Villa has two bedrooms, a main bedroom and a second bedroom/study.
  • The bedrooms and dressing rooms are air-conditioned and are equipped with extra large beds,
  • as well as lounge areas with TV and DVD/CD.

North Island North Island Seychelles - Characteristics and Facilities


Dining & Cuisine at North Island Seychelles:

Besides its exceptional beauty, North Island has long been renowned for its fertility and also for the richness of  the fishing grounds wherein it nestles. It is not surprising therefore, that North Island’s lodge should draw upon  these exceptional natural resources. Our cuisine is based on the very finest natural products lovingly prepared in a sumptuous array of exotic dishes.

The cuisine of North Island is based on the diversity and cultural influences which, in part, make up the Seychellois Creole flavour. Culinary aspects of Seychelles, France and southern Indian spices are combined with the organic resources of North Island and the abundance on offer from the Indian Ocean. Balanced together with simplicity, expect a feast that will awaken all of your senses. There is a “no menu” concept of dining on North Island and the chef, David Godin, speaks to each guest, explains the North Island cuisine concept, finds out personal food preferences and then develops the menus daily around this information. We promise you a memorable culinary experience, complimented by an impressive cellar with some of the world’s great wines and champagnes. To ensure that we can fulfill our promise, please let us know well in advance of any special dietary requirements.

The activities on offer on North Island are designed to give our guests the opportunity to enjoy the Island and its magic either under guidance from one of our hosts, or to give you the complete freedom to move aroundt the Island at your own pace, either on foot, on our mountain bikes or by Island Buggie. These activities will have a minimal impact on the environment whilst providing the thrill and enjoyment of entertainment and exercise.

Numerous dive sites have been identified around NorthIsland and its nearest neighbour Silhouette Island. We offer a "guided" scuba experience and ourdive masters and instructors are not only experts in scuba practices but also in the underwateruniverse. PADI Open Water dive courses are offered while on the island. The Dive Centre is fully equipped with the latest BCD’s, regulators, wetsuits, fins and masks. Guests wishing to dive need not bring their own hard or soft gear.

Trips to Silhouette Island: located some five kilometres to the south, Silhouette Island is a soaring granite island, whose peaks are constantly enveloped in clouds. The granite cliffs drop sharply into the sea. Silhouette Island has few beaches, though there are some wonderful tiny coves with remote beaches that are worth exploring.

Silhouette Island's attractions include an excellent example of a Seychelles plantation house (built in 1850), now a museum, and the remains of its once thriving copra processing plant.Ron Gerlach is the resident ecologist and runs a breeding programme for the highly endangered Seychelles giant tortoises and terrapin. His immaculate research centre is worth a visit and, depending on the time of the year, you may see turtle eggs (Hawksbill ad Green turtles) being incubated. For the energetic and fit, Silhouette Island has some challenging hiking trails.
