One of the most prestigious island addresses in the Seychelles, Fregate Island Private (20 minutes by private helicopter from Mahe) is the ultimate sophisticated island paradise. It is a romantic luxury hideaway literally in a world all of its own - and just perfect for true romantics. Its lush vibrant contours, just a mile in length and less than a mile wide, are ringed by seven beaches as dazzling as any in the tropics, and yours to explore in your own villa golf buggy. The dense tropical vegetation of coconut palms, takamaka bamboo and sandragon trees (criss-crossed by inviting little pathways meandering amid the granite hill slopes and plantations down to the beaches) are home to rare wildlife species that include the Magpie Robin and a colony of giant tortoises. The beautiful Resort creates an idyllic sense of Seychellois escapism and charm - while its quality and elegance belie the exotic faraway setting.
