The remote location of Cosmoledo makes it a place of wild, natural beauty with an environment of sand dunes, expansive sand flats, grassland and mangroves. Two key islands - Menai and Wizard - occupy the eastern and western sides of the atoll, and this is where the accommodation is situated, on Wizard Island in fact.
Given its commitment to conservation and protection, this is where nature meets creative hospitality! There are just eight recrafted air-conditioned Eco Pods (Beach Cabanas) which blend with the natural beauty of the island and offer spectacular ocean views. All sleep two and are equipped with modern amenities with an outdoor shower and deck. Managed by Blue Safari Seychelles, stays on Cosmoledo are seasonal, from November to April each year.
A central dining and entertainment area is the focal point for social get-togethers. Three meals a day are included with Seychellois Creole-style menus including fresh fish daily. Complimentary communal excursions include a reef flats expedition, Wizard Island walking tour, sundowners on the beach, a flats lunch and de-tackling drinks & snacks. In addition, independent activities including kayaking, snorkelling and stand-up paddle boarding are complimentary.
