Diving

Instruction and certification in scuba-diving and snorkelling is available at the PADI-certified dive centre. To the north of Fregate is Chimney Rocks, one of many popular diving locations where you can explore the dazzling underwater world that encircles the island.

Family

The Castaway Kids' Clubhouse for children 3 to 12 years-old, is a platform to educate and teach children (and parents) about the local environment and conservation of the island's natural heritage, as well as offering games, DVDs, craft materials, books and more.

During Christmas and Easter holidays a programme of structured, fun activities allows children to make new friends, meet old friends, and explore and enjoy the island in a safe and secure environment. A Castaway Activity Co-ordinator will be available at this time to supervise activities. Babysitters are advisable for children under 3 years-old who wish to visit The Castaway Club.

At other times of the year, The Castaway Club can be opened for families, however there will be no Castaway Activity Co-ordinator available, although a babysitter can be arranged with prior notice.

Health & Fitness

The Rock Spa is a haven of serenity, perched on a cliff-top plateau overlooking the sea. Entry is via a granite canyon, flanked by freshwater pools and cascading waterfalls; the spa celebrates the island's unique surroundings and embraces all elements of nature.

The finest holistic treatments from all over the world utilise ancient techniques from India, Australia and Polynesia with botanical treatments prepared from local ingredients growing on the island. After your treatment, relax with a glass of coconut milk, Champagne or lemongrass tea and enjoy the view from the spa's sublime vantage point high above the Indian Ocean.

The Rock Spa, in partnership with leading Ayurvedic Physician, Dr Abhilash Haridas, also offers bespoke holistic health experiences. These incorporate a combination of preventative and healing Ayurvedic therapies, as well as personalised Ayurvedic wellness cuisine using organically grown island produce or locally line-caught fish, to help guests achieve a balanced state of body, mind and consciousness.

In Addition

Nature Walks
Absorb the natural bliss of this resort, its protected surroundings and exceedingly conscientious conservation efforts with an in-depth nature walk. Venture into the jungle's tropical interior alone or take an ecologist with you for guidance. Amongst the jungle's canopies hide the island's infamous Magpie Robin and the tuneful Blue Pigeon as well as various beetles, insects and terrapins. Keep an eye out for the Aldabra Giant Tortoise - these are protected by the island's Tortoise Protection Programme - definitely a sight worth seeing in their natural habitat. Thanks to continuous conservation efforts, the island now boasts the second largest collection of these formidable creatures in the world - two thousand - so there is plenty of opportunity to spot one ambling across the jungle floor. 

Boat Excursions
For a truly memorable experience, and 'a must' for any romantic, the resort can arrange for guests to go on a Sunset Cruise or a Sashimi Picnic by boat. 


 

Weddings & Honeymoons

This romantic luxury hideaway, literally in a world all of its own, is perfect for true romantics and offers a wealth of locations for the bride and groom to share their vows, including the island chapel, your own villa, the main lobby, the Rock Spa, on one of the beautiful beaches or on-board a boat. After the ceremony, the newly- wedded couple can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner in the privacy of their villa.

LUXURYBARED INDEPENDENT REVIEW

Fregate Island Private

I headed to Fregate Island Private with a mind-set that I suspect is typical of many first-time guests. Days spent on the beach, nights in a lovely villa, an organic meal or two under the stars, and sighting of a few giant turtles thrown in for good measure. Being somewhat of a cynic when it comes to luxury marketing, I have to admit I didn’t initially buy into Fregate Island’s website promises. But I was wrong. Fregate markets itself as a ‘unique on the planet’ resort, something it genuinely lives up to and more. The eco-diversity of the island, its approach to sustainability and the sheer array of interesting things to do will pique the interest of even the most jaded traveller. Of course, Fregate Island is most famous for its turtles and tropical bird populations. The giant Aldabra Tortoises, some 2000 plus in numbers, can live up to 170 years. The sight of them is an amazing sight for both the young and old. So bring the kids if you have some, as the kids' club here is renowned as one of the best a resort can offer with, of course, turtle-related events and treasure hunts and all kinds of activities to keep the young ones happy while adults relax and unwind in this paradise. Yet things weren’t always so sweet. As a luxury private island resort, Fregate Island Private has had its ups and downs over the years. And so three years ago, the island’s owner appointed the Oetker Collection to manage the property and the rest is history, as the saying goes.
