North Island Villas

On this beautiful island an exclusive luxury lodge has been built. The true essence of North Island can be seen here, a rare experience in harmony with the environment. The development on North Island is unashamedly aimed at providing the very best in privacy, location, accommodation, services, facilities and experience. The Island has only 11 guest Villas, exquisitely designed to celebrate nature and offer an authentic home-from-home ambience. The result is a special destination that touches the lives of its guests and inspires them long after they have left. North Island is an example of a sustainable ecologically sensitive utilization of a precious natural treasure.

Villa 1-10

The 11 villas measure 450 square metres (4,890 square feet). The idea was to make sure the Villas would bring the sense to life, but at the same time be a simple space in which to free the mind and refresh the soul. Each Villa has two bedrooms, a main bedroom and a second bedroom. Each Villa has been individually handcrafted by Seychellois and African craftsmen on the Island. The principle materials used were wood, local stone, glass and thatched roofs. Each Villa is completely self-contained and is raised over a metre off the ground to catch the cooling island breezes. A luxuriously proportioned master bedroom with change-room and writing area leads onto a large en-suite bathroom with marble bath and two showers, one indoor and one outdoor. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms have overhead “punkah punkah” fans. The fully retracting sliding doors allow for uninterrupted views onto the lawns and the turquoise seas in front of each Villa.

    North Island Villas Restaurants

    The cuisine is based on the very finest natural products lovingly prepared in a sumptuous array of exotic dishes. The cuisine of North Island is based on the diversity and cultural influences which, in part, make up the Seychellois Creole flavour. Culinary aspects of Seychelles, France and southern Indian spices are combined with the organic resources of North Island and the abundance on offer from the Indian Ocean. Balanced together with simplicity, expect a feast that will awaken all of your senses. There is a “no menu” concept of dining on North Island and the chef, Troy Smith, speaks to each guest, explains the North Island cuisine concept, finds out personal food preferences and then develops the menus daily around this information.
