North Island

Set on a private islet north of Mahe, North Island Seychelles is a resort which epitomises the concept of “barefoot luxury”.

North Island is located on a private islet in the Seychelles, fringed by miles and miles of pristine white powder sand. With just 11 individually crafted guest villas tucked beneath swaying palms, this exquisite beach resort is renowned for offering “barefoot luxury” – complete freedom to wear what you want and do whatever you wish in sumptuously indulgent surrounds.

Constructed with local materials, each guest villa is designed to be a home-away-from-home. Interiors are simple yet sophisticated, drawing inspiration from the surrounding environment with features such as smooth stone bathtubs, exposed thatch roofs and raw timber floors. No two villas are the same, but all continue to set the standard for five-star luxury island hideaways.

A wide range of activities are available at North Island ranging from stand up paddleboarding and kayaking to cycling, picnics and sunset cruises. Guests can also take guided walks, spend time with the resort’s conservation team, go on a scuba diving excursion or snorkel the islet’s rich coral reefs. If relaxation is on the agenda, don’t miss a spa treatment at the soothing day spa or yoga at daybreak.
