This unspoilt, tropical retreat consisting of just 11 handcrafted villas set in a sanctuary of powder-soft beaches can be summed up as the perfect combination of castaway luxury with a light ecological footprint.
Conservation is at the heart of many of the island’s activities, with exceptional dive sites and fantastic snorkelling a speciality. There are four beaches on the island, including the romantic hideaway at Honeymoon Cove, a particularly exclusive spot in which to escape. Private and secluded villas have full butler service, a private kitchen where a chef will prepare your meals, and their own plunge pool and sala (day bed).
The resort revolves around your specific desires, manifested in the ‘no-menu’ concept which means that a chef will personally tailor your individual dinner preferences with a choice of where to dine – and with a vast wine cellar, you’ll always find the perfect accompaniment to any cuisine you request. North Island Spa is a place of extreme natural beauty, specialising in tailormade holistic treatments that rejuvenate the mind, body and soul.
Ending your days at the West Beach Bar will complete your hours on paradise in style; where exotic cocktails are enjoyed as the sun sets into the blue ocean.

The freshest fruits of the Indian Ocean, a delicious fusion of Seychellois and international cultural influences, and the rich organic produce of North Island itself all come together to create delectable cuisine. Your dining choices are not governed by menus or set buffets, as this resort has implemented a unique ‘no menu’ concept. Let chefs design your own carte du jour every day, taking your every need and desire into account. Dine wherever you want – against a backdrop of natural granite and spectacular ocean views in the main dining area, on a pristine, secluded beach, on the pool deck or in the privacy of your own villa. All dining experiences are accompanied by exceptional wines from the vast cellar.
The hub of the island is The Piazza, a sumptuous dining area nestled beneath a large Indian almond tree. Backed by a lily pond, this laid-back lounge is open on all sides to take advantage of stunning panoramas of the bay and verdant mountain. Dine on the beach or under the upside-down casuarina tree roof.
