NORTH ISLAND SEYCHELLES

Extreme Relaxation A Robinson-Crusoe-meets-Paradise-Island vibe greets you on a stroll around the tranquil shores of this long uninhabited jewel. Architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens along with artisans from Africa, Zanzibar, Bali and the Seychelles married cultures and architectures to provide an over-the-top, intimate fantastical paradise.

From the eleven guest villas complete with decadent private pools and libraries, to the West Beach Bar perched on an outcrop of the granitic island’s westside––the view becomes less of an experience and more a call to the soul. Lavish accommodations include 450 square-metre villas with luxurious bedrooms, a writing and changing room area, generous marble baths and outdoor showers.

You decide wether to let the gentle breeze of punkah-punkah fans cool you down while opening fully retracting windows to admire the 270-degree view, or simply indulge in air-conditioning. When its time to pamper no one does relaxation better than North Island. Swimming and sunbathing on four private beaches, just steps away snorkelling and scuba diving with 4-metre visibility over otherworldly reefs, yoga on the beach for your most memorable sun salutation, and private massages.

Visits to the world-class Spa on North Island find a blend of the rare and exotic right down to organic natural herbs, marine cosmetics and complimentary barefoot rituals, a foot massage that chases away the stress of travel and welcomes relaxation. Their holistic and Thalgo treatments feel more like journeys.

Get your adventure on with Hobie sailing, yacht charters and deep sea fishing. Enjoy island hopping on a private helicopter to play golf at 18-hole Lamuria Resort on Praslin Island. Trekkers will enjoy nature walks hosted by the island’s ecologist or bird watching with a naturalist. north-island.com
