A PARADISE ON EARTH
Seychelles lies off the coast of East Africa, northeast of Madagascar. It is comprised of over 100 islands. Granite-backed hills rise out of the ocean, covered in a thick, tropical forest surrounded by talcum-powdered beaches and cerulean waters. Seychelles is the epitome of an island paradise, complete with cocktails on the beach, fishing, walks, bike rides, golfing and even the option to explore the island’s water. Here, guests can enjoy diving, snorkelling and sailing in search of the diverse marine species that lie beneath the tropical waters. There’s also a chance to encounter giant tortoises amongst the beautiful island backdrop as well as an array of colourful endemic birds.
Located amongst the inner granitic islands of Seychelles, North Island is a fertile paradise. This makes it the perfect setting for the Noah’s Ark conservation and island rehabilitation programme. The natural beauty of North Island will touch and inspire you at the deepest level.
Islands have been referred to as the “laboratories of evolution” and North Island biodiversity is living proof of this. Why not spend time with our Environmental Team or simply explore the island at your own pace? Both will allow you to appreciate the efforts put into rehabilitating this natural idyll.
On Desroches Island, there is nothing to distract you from tranquillity, except for the sound of birds singing and an ocean breeze that invites you to come a little closer. This is the only resort on this captivating coral island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, where beaches belong to no one and everyone at the same time. Rustic villas and bungalows prove to be intimate retreats that turn guests into castaways who have struck gold.
