Set on extraordinarily beautiful and private North Island in the Seychelles, North Island Lodge is a rare sanctuary for those seeking a luxurious, unspoiled and completely exclusive tropical haven. Elegantly combining organic elements with touches of sheer luxury, it's no wonder that North Island was recently voted No. 1 in the World's 'Best of the Best' category by Conde Nast Traveller and was chosen as the 2011 honeymoon escape for Prince William and Kate.

For those who enjoy an active holiday, North Island offers spectacular snorkelling and scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, mountain biking and guided hikes. Others may enjoy just taking in the postcard-perfect views from the swimming pool, catching a tan with a book in hand from the extensive lodge library or indulging in a carefully tailored spa treatment in the privacy of their villa. Whatever it is you want, the staff at North Island Lodge will do their utmost to oblige.

Built into the granite boulders of the eastern coast of the island and set directly on the beach is the Island Piazza, a creatively designed seating area, bar and dining deck that flows onto the sparkling white sands of a breathtaking bay.

A sunset bar is tucked away on the western beach of the island. The main swimming pool surrounded by leafy tropical vegetation and the world-class dive centre are close by, while North Island’s gym and spa are perched on one of the most peaceful corners of the island with spectacular views. Indulge in a tailor-made holistic treatment while gazing out over the Indian Ocean to the horizon.

The Library is located in the oldest original building on the island. Made from blocks of coral, it houses a wide selection of literature and information about the island and is the location for the fascinating talks that are held each evening.

Each and every meal at North Island Lodge is designed around your tastes, whims and requirements. Plan each meal with the island’s chef, or leave it up to him to surprise you with delicious, fresh and imaginative cuisine. The location of each meal is completely flexible and ranges from dining in the privacy of your villa to picnics in secluded coves and sociable beach barbecues. Many of the ingredients for your delicious meals will be freshly harvested from the Indian Ocean and the island’s vegetable and herb gardens while some of the world’s finest wines have been selected for the lodge’s extensive cellar.


There are only 11 handcrafted guest villas on the entire island, each in its own private space just footsteps from the powder-white sands of the eastern beach.

Each villa, about 5 000 square feet in size, is completely self-contained and comprises a luxuriously proportioned, air-conditioned bedroom with overhead fans, fully retracting sliding windows with views of the beach, a writing and dressing room area plus a huge en suite bathroom. The bathrooms at North Island Lodge have a large bath and double vanities as well as an indoor and outdoor shower (although the retractable doors can create the feeling of an outdoor bathroom).

The villas also have their own mini-kitchen, a large sundeck and covered lounge area, plus a private plunge pool and sala - all of which creates a private sanctuary within a sanctuary. An additional study or bedroom is equipped with a DVD/CD system and Internet access. This room can be rearranged as a second bedroom to accommodate children. In order to get you around the island, each villa has its own mountain bikes and island buggy.
