North Island -

An Exclusive Island Hideaway in the Indian Ocean

To sum up the essence of the privately owned North Island in a catchy phrase … Tranquil luxury for discerning individuals. North Island elevates itself above the many luxury island resorts of the Indian Ocean. Situated approximately 40 kilometres north west of Mahé, the private island is an exclusive destination frequented foremost by travel-savvy individualists in search of a secluded island paradise. North Island is the antonym to mass tourism. No more than 20 distinguished guests can be accommodated at once in the luxury resort’s private villas. The granite island itself is only 2.5 square kilometres large but features four picture-perfect sand beaches for a dip in the crystal clear, warm waters of the ocean. In accordance with the resort’s pledge to create no significant impact on the island’s ecosystem and appearance, all installations have been integrated most harmonically into their natural surroundings. The 11 stand-along guest villas line the main beach almost imperceptibly, blending with the lush tropical vegetation. The island’s breathtakingly beautiful nature sports not only fantastic beaches and towering granite formations but also a diverse flora and fauna. An easy hike can include both easy strolls along secluded bays, climbs to stunning vantage points commanding spectacular views of the island and sightings of wildlife. It is Garden Eden on earth. The flair of the “Island of a thousand palm trees” is captivating from the moment you first set foot on it. One may loose oneself in fantasies of a far-flung pirate lair … alighting on blindingly white beaches and drinking rum under coconut palms. Adequately, the resort presents itself entirely clad in natural materials. Each of the spectacular villas is protected by a palm leaf thatched roof supported by sturdy trunks which are lit from underneath to properly illuminate your pirate hideout at night. Each villa’s private pool has been stylishly set into the spacious timber deck and comes equipped with a counter current system. The island projecting its wildly romantic ambience, the North Island Resort’s villas pick up the image skilfully, however, without sacrificing even an ounce of luxury. Each villa offers more than 500 square metres to spread out. The distinguished guests will enjoy a special experience not offered by any other hotel on the face of the earth. The resort’s service matches the facilities’ luxury in every sense: More than 150 staff member take perfect care of their 22 guests! The service truly is extremely outstanding! Strolling down the beach, you might chat to a staff member and incidentally mention you plan to use the large, natural stone bathtub later that day. Well, arriving back at your villa at night, you can count on finding a candlelit bathroom, champagne and exquisite chocolates waiting for you by the lovingly decorated, filled tub. Time to soak in the water and enjoy the spectacular view of the ocean below. Your privacy is a first priority on North Island. A specially appointed “Villa-Master” attends to each guest’s individual needs, desires and wishes. All meals are prepared on the chef’s suggestion and according to guest’s particular taste. Either you may choose to dine in the refined ambience of your private villa or, should you desire to mingle with other guests, in the comfortable restaurant. International and local specialities are prepared to perfection and seasoned with a stunning view. The guest’s comfort comes first! On North Island, despite the exclusive nature of the resort, no dress codes are required. The atmosphere is refreshingly relaxed and you are perfectly right to walk to the restaurant bare-footed or dress casually. A range of superior facilities rounds off North Island’s luxurious guest services. A bar and a lounge, a well-stocked library with internet access, a swimming pool beautifully set into the natural rock and with a breathtaking view of the bay below as well as a first-rate wellness and fitness centre await the guest’s visit. The operating company running the North Island Resort is none other than the acclaimed Wilderness Safaris. Nature conservation is one of the company’s primary concerns. An extensive program has been launched to protect the island’s pristine nature with special attention being devoted to the Seychelles’ tortoises. Wilderness Safaris’ profound experience gained in Botswana and Namibia with constructing and running luxury resorts and safari lodges becomes clearly apparent on North Island. Viewed from afar, North Island shows no signs of being inhabited, much less housing a luxury resort, so skilfully have the installations been integrated into the natural backdrop. The Intosol team has enjoyed the opportunity to personally experience North Island. Especially, the individual, attentive and in every sense perfect service is absolutely outstanding. North Island easily holds its position among the world’s most remarkable luxury lodgings. Naturally, excellence has its price. One of the most luxurious and most expensive accommodation options on the Seychelles, North Island’s villas sell for more than 2000 Euros per night. Of course, you are buying value for your money and every minute spent on the island justifies the expensive price tag. North Island is unique in every sense – the nature, the resort’s concept and the service. Paradise par excellence.
