THE RESORT

With just 11 villas on this property, your footprints will be the only evidence on the Island’s vast, untouched beaches.

North Island features just eleven private guest villas, offering each guest an unparalleled sense of exclusivity and luxury. Our villas have all been created from local materials harvested during the island rehabilitation process, balancing luxury and simplicity to form a signature architectural style we call “barefoot luxury”.

Your villa will become your own private beach home. The colours evoke the marine environment and the fusion of rough and smooth textures and simple and sophisticated forms combine to create an entirely authentic, contextual, and sumptuous sanctuary.

Your experience on this private island is completely customised to the holiday you are seeking. The rules on North Island are the ones you make yourselves: your schedule is only as full as you wish it to be, and the dress code reflects your own personal style.

During 2014, the latest softs and décor refurbishment introduced a refreshed colour palette, designer bathroom fittings, and re-emphasised sense of place – all ensuring that North Island continues to set the global standard for luxury private island hideaways.

Beachfront Villas – Only 10 villas each of 450m²

North Island itself is just slightly north-west of the Seychelles main island Mahé, nestled between the sixth and tenth degree latitude lines, south of the equator. There are many international airlines that fly to Seychelles International Airport (SEZ) or Aéroport de la Pointe La Rue in French. It is located in Victoria, the capital city. From there, North Island is only 40km (25 miles), a short 15-minute helicopter ride away.

Actives - Culture - Family

Renowned safari camp architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens lived on North Island for two years while dreaming up the 11 villas and East Beach piazza, where several heritage stone agricultural buildings have been retooled to house a beautiful library, a dive centre and a boutique, beside a barely-there thatched lounge, bar and restaurant.

Their deep understanding of the island, its moods and colours, informs everything. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the use of upturned takamaka trees their sculptural roots splayed out like the ribs of medieval vaults supporting the thatched roofs. Driftwood, granite, roped coral, glass, and textured textiles the colours of the sea, anchor the design delightfully in the fabric of the landscape. Everything is out of the ordinary and yet the experience is one of deep immersion in nature.
