North Island, Seychelles, is a honeymooners’ dream private island
After enduring the stress of planning a wedding, Seychelles is an ideal honeymoon destination for couples seeking secluded beaches, breathtaking scenery and ultimate tranquillity. Gabrielle Avraham from bespoke travel design agency Gabrielle’s List knows just the place.
North Island is an eco-conscious private island resort, 30 kilometres from the Seychellois main island of Mahé, which has been managed by South Africa’s Wilderness Safaris for over a decade.
North Island is one of our favourite resorts in the Indian Ocean as it is situated on an entire island and provides only 11 sumptuous and spacious villas handcrafted from local materials, equipped with private pools. Villa North Island is set atop the granite boulders at the far end of East Beach, a bastion of privacy, opulence and seclusion that flows in tiers down to a private beach. Combined with bespoke levels of service, these retreats make North Island one of the most exclusive private islands in the world.
This incredible resort has been visited by A-list honeymooners such as Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Victoria and David Beckham, as well as George and Amal Clooney.
Guests can indulge in activities including scuba diving, sailing, snorkelling, delicious spa treatments, private yoga sessions, bike rides and nature walks.
Why honeymooners love it:
- The restaurant doesn’t offer menus as the chef creates meals according to guests’ individual preferences. The culinary creations you’ll encounter are spell-binding.
- Guests can reserve an entire beach for private use, allowing you to indulge in seclusion and space.
- Depending on the time of the year, guests may be lucky enough to witness hawksbill and green turtles laying their eggs on East, West and Honeymoon beaches of North Island during North Island Turtle Walks.
