Description

Described as the ultimate in 'Robinson Crusoe' living (although Crusoe didn’t get to arrive by helicopter), this private island combines the concept of barefoot luxury with a light ecological footprint. With just eleven villas located a stone’s throw from the beach, all with their own private Butler, this is a true hideaway ideal for honeymoon couples (weddings can also be arranged here), for those seeking a secluded sanctuary or even for families and larger groups wanting to make a united escape. Conservation without compromise is a dominant theme and the vast suites offer every luxury, including generous private pools sunk into the deck, while indigenous plants and birds are returning to the island after many years of absence.

The Seychelles forms part of the world's longest coral reef system and has some of the world's best scuba diving with numerous dive sites having been identified around North Island and its nearest neighbour Silhouette Island. The Dive and Activity Centre at North Island offers both the novice and the experienced diver alike, a "guided" scuba experience with dive masters who are not only experts in scuba practices but also in the underwater universe.

The Beach

With inimitably white sand that feels like powder beneath your feet - along with utterly transparent, topaz-coloured water - North Island is a true paradise boasting four private beaches. Lie back beneath the sun on the stunning East Beach, a ribbon of gleaming sand, before heading to West Beach for a sundowner cocktail with spectacular views of the pastel-coloured sky. Take to the glorious waters on a kayak or paddleboard, or encounter a colourful underground kingdom as you snorkel along enchanting reefs. Due to the glorious conservation programme here, prepare to meet charming turtles as they nest along the shore.

Weddings

Oozing romance and intimacy, North Island is an unbeatable destination for the wedding of your dreams. Embrace the outstanding natural beauty as the white sands and turquoise-coloured waters form an elegantly simple backdrop to your ceremony. Enabling complete flexibility, there is no set 'wedding package'; instead, every individual wish and preference will be arranged for your bespoke day. Follow the ceremony with cocktails at West Beach, fine dining at the Piazza, or even book the entire island for the ultimate after-party following your unforgettable wedding.

With its stunning scenery, glorious sense of space and fascinating pirate history, the enchanting North Island is the perfect destination for a unique and unforgettable family getaway.

Combining privacy and exclusivity with breathtaking natural beauty, North Island is an unparalleled romantic getaway, even according to royalty - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge honeymooned here. Take off your watches and turn off your phones, experiencing the true luxury of uninterrupted time together on what feels like your very own island. Head to the, aptly named, Honeymoon Beach - one of the most romantic in the world - and enjoy an idyllic picnic atop the powdery white sand. Marvel at the spectacular sunset as you sip a cocktail at West Beach, before dining in utter privacy under the stars.

LUXURYBARED INDEPENDENT REVIEW

North Island

There are few exceptional private island resorts in the world, but two of the very best happen to be in the Seychelles. One of them is, simply named, North Island and it’s the only simple thing about this island. The island does indeed have laudable ‘eco-cred’; their history and ongoing programmes are quite remarkable. Better yet, visitors can tap into it during their stay with organised adventures and tailor-made activities of all kinds. Not to mention watersports and diving excursions. But frankly it’s not the finite reason to come here, because the real lure is that this is, without a doubt, the ultimate, most private and discrete, indulgent beach holiday you can possibly have anywhere in the world. As the saying goes, you have to see it to believe it. And at a daily rate of a few Ks per person, such heavenly surrounds are at the very sharpest end of the price scale and therefore only available to the privileged few. So it raises the obvious question: is it worth it? Without a moment's hesitation I say yes, absolutely. Sell the heirlooms and mortgage the house. And don’t even consider leaving until you breathe you last breath or the money runs out, whichever happens first.
