Official Rating

‘Private Island Nature Lovers Paradise – Coral Reefs and Island Farm’

Denis Private Island is a natural 375acre paradise with a conservation conscience that is apparent in the décor, cuisine and activities. The accommodation consists of just 23 free-standing cottages close to the beach. The island’s surrounding reef is home to white-tip sharks, rays and turtles and a PADI Dive Centre has courses for beginners to experienced divers and snorkelling. Water sports includes kayaking, sailing and tag-and-release game fishing. On dry land tennis, bike riding and billiards will keep you entertained and children will love exploring the island farm. The Spa and Wellness services offer the chance to relax. The island's local produce is showcased at the restaurant which delivers themed evenings including ‘Barbecue Under the Stars.’

In Our Opinion
