"The ultimate opulent stay, where you have an exclusive private island basically all to yourself. This is one of the only properties to offer all-inclusive rates, so you can have all your activities such as scuba diving and fishing included. For a real treat, spend your nights in Villa 11, known as 'the best' villa on the island and offering the ultimate luxury island living. Service is second to none here, but aside from that it is quite simply one of the most jaw-dropping remote island experiences we know. The vibe is very much barefoot chic, not over the top!"


We are delighted to recommend North Island to travellers keen to sample all the splendours of the Seychelles. This truly is the best of barefoot luxury!


North Island is set on a private island in the heart of the Seychelles, amongst the inner granitic islands. 


The accommodation occupies much of the eastern side of the island, from the elegant Island Piazza, Library and Boutique dotted around the south-east tip to the eleven private villas spaced along the coastline. On the opposite shore, there is the more secluded Honeymoon Beach, then The Spot – a sala ideal for picnics – and West Beach Bar, which witnesses spectacular sunsets. As far as possible, all buildings are constructed from local materials such as wood, stone and thatch, styled to epitomise ‘barefoot luxury’.

All villas are spacious (450m2!) and benefit from a superb location close to the island’s main beach. Each contains a master bedroom, fully air conditioned and featuring four-poster bed, change room and writing area. En-suite facilities include marble bath and indoor and outdoor showers. A second room is intended primarily as a study, lounge and theatre, but it may be used to accommodate children aged 19 years and under at extra cost. Both rooms boast sliding doors that open onto wonderful views of lawns, then white sands and turquoise waters beyond. A kitchen is situated adjacent to the second room, and finally there is a private plunge pool and sala, perfect for relaxation!

Service at North Island is absolutely impeccable. Perhaps it is illustrated best in the unique dining concept, whereby there is no set menu and guests are invited to express their preferences as soon as they have arrived. All food is sourced locally – from the island itself or fresh from the sea – and fuses local, French and Indian flavours. Wine is brought from extensive cellars, and all is served on Island Piazza with its delightful dining spaces, sala and main bar.


  • For activities at North Island, there is the Activity Centre.
  • From here, guests enjoy diving, kayaking, deep sea fishing, mountain biking – and trips to Silhouette Island, 5km south.
  • The main swimming pool, 45m long and flanked by tall palms, is also a major attraction.
  • And, of course, exploring the island on foot is a wonderful way to while away the time.
