In Our Opinion

‘The focal point of this resort is the island piazza; a cluster of elegant rustic buildings set around a magnificent Indian Almond Tree – if this is your ideal ‘city-centre’ then North Island is your kind of place. Expect to be more of a revered guest than a tourist, enjoy the luxurious, laid-back approach and return refreshed!’

Presidential Villa

The villas on the island are constructed with the guests own space and privacy in mind. All have been handcrafted and designed with the best natural woods and local materials and feature thatched “ylang ylang” roofs to create a welcoming space. Additionally, the villas are raised above the ground so guests can enjoy the cool breezes of the island.

All facilities on North Island are of such exquisite beauty that it would not do them justice to mention ‘a library’ for example; the North Island Library is an amazing architectural design crafted from pure coral rocks and houses a collection of books and fascinating local information.

No Menus

The island operates a ‘no-menu’ dining concept preferring to adopt a totally personal approach; the island chef consults with each guest to discover their preferences and so creating a unique culinary experience at every meal.


To do justice to the delicate cuisine you will be able to choose from an impressive cellar which houses some of the world’s great wines and Champagnes

North Island Sunset Bar

Simple rustic bar located just above the high water mark on the northern end of Grande Anse. Drinks and light snacks may be served.

The island can be reached in 20 minutes from Mahe by helicopter.
