Overview


The number one choice for the Seychelles!  North Island guarantees you a magical Robinson Crusoe mood and memories.  Long-uninhabited, this stunningly beautiful and private granite island (20 minutes by helicopter from Mahé) offers its privileged guests exclusive luxury and a sense of true Zen 'barefoot living' – with the bonus of superb snorkelling and diving.  This island is also the protected habitat of such species as turtles, corals and reef fish, and a resident ecologist can acquaint guests further.  North Island is the place where discerning castaways anchor, simplicity and style unite and no news or sense of time exists!



The Lodge itself has just eleven Villas (and a larger 4-bedroom Royal Villa), individually designed to provide the ultimate in seclusion and comfort. Beautifully integrated into the natural granite boulders and rocks of the shoreline, and making use of local casuarinas and takamaka wood, each boasts 450 square metres of living space and private garden. 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. The air-conditioned study can also convert to a second bedroom. The living-area (half-open to the elements - but with protective blinds!) also enjoys wide views of the glorious setting, while a private freshwater rock pool, sala pavilion and large hand-crafted panoramic wooden deck all add further memorable touches. A luxuriously proportioned master bedroom with dressing room and writing area leads onto a large en-suite bathroom with marble bath and shower. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms have overhead ‘punkah punkah’ fan. The fully retracting sliding doors allows for uninterrupted views onto the lawns and the turquoise seas in front of each Villa. Especially impressive is the open-air bathroom area – with sunken bath and shower, as well as a second outdoor shower. Each Villa enjoys private butler service.

North Island Villa is completely unique in its setting, 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 view 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 No: 11 from the rest.

The Restaurant

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. The 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 Africa, France, southern India and south-east Asia 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 in the restaurant i.e. the chef speaks to the guest upon arrival, explains the North Island cuisine concept, finds out their food preferences and then develops the menus daily around this information. Island meals are complemented by a choice of exotic dining settings. The dining area is set against a backdrop of natural granite with superb views over the sea. Other locations include all the island's secluded beaches, the pool deck, West Beach bar and the privacy of your own villa.


All in all, this is a memorable culinary experience at your own choice of time and place, complemented by an impressive cellar with some of the world's great wines and Champagne.
