The remote North Island in the Seychelles had been uninhabited for over 30 years until some of the world leaders in authentic eco-tourism invested in the island to turn it into a sanctuary for both discerning travellers and wildlife.
Accommodation & Facilities
A team of craftsmen has created a 'Robinson Crusoe' luxury barefoot paradise unlike any other. Each of the 11 private villas is the epitome of understated elegance and serenity. The villas are all built entirely from natural materials including wood, local stone and thatch, and comprise a bedroom, huge en-suite bathroom, outside shower, veranda and private pool. Facilities include a central dining area, lounge, library, spa and gym. There is a main pool built into a granite outcrop and a secluded bar tucked away on the west side of the island.
There is a wide range of activities on offer. You can explore the island by foot, by bike or on a motorised island buggie. Watersports including sea-kayaking, diving and snorkelling are available, and guests can also take excursions to nearby islands or enjoy some fly fishing.

We found paradise on earth – what a place, what staff! Everything has been amazing and we just have to come back for more. Thank you North Island – nature at its best.

Can anything ever get better? Everything at North Island is seamless, beautiful, the scuba diving is the best ever—even the sharks were beautiful. A star attraction!
the best time of year to holiday in the Seychelles?
This equatorial archipelago has a remarkably consistent climate year round. There is no bad time of year to travel here in reality, although some may wish to avoid the wetter weather over the Christmas holidays.
These months do see the peak rainfall, but this is a high season for people wishing to escape the winter months in the northern hemisphere
The weather in these months is cooler and windier, but this is a popular time to visit the archipelago.
