Denis Private Island

In spite of being seemingly cut off from the world at large, Denis is only a 25 minute flight from Seychelles' main island, Mahe. Surrounding Denis is a natural coral reef, great for snorkelling, diving and fishing activities, as well as exploring the local ecology. This unique, idyllic tropical island paradise is a superb choice for a luxury Seychelles honeymoon or a special anniversary holiday.

Service on the island is exceptional with staff friendly, helpful and yet discreet. There are just 25 spacious, comfortable and elegantly furnished cottages on the island in a choice of five different types. Privacy is assured with all separated by hedges and lush gardens, whilst the lapping waves and white sand beach are literally just a few steps from the quaint cottages. For those wishing to indulge, the Beach Villa is recommended; taking up 325 square metres and possessing a plunge pool and private courtyard.

While guests are welcome to enjoy the lack of modern distractions, there is a TV and WiFi access tucked away in the library should you need to stay connected. The main guest area offers an excellent bar and lounge with views stretching to the ocean horizon. Food on the island is exquisite and as your stay is on Full Board, you'll be able to enjoy a delectable array cuisine. Most meals are taken in the open-sided restaurant, although some beach barbecues are held. Private romantic dinners on the beach can be arranged as well as in-room dining. Spa treatments may be taken in your cottage or on the privacy of your deck.

Getting There

A 25 minute flight by light aircraft from the main island of Mahe Island. Denis is served by just one flight a day.


Visit the old village craft workshops and the island's farm. Take a tour of the island with the resident ecologist and discover rare bird species as well as the giant tortoise colony. Alternatively, enjoy an array of spa & wellness therapies as well as snorkelling, deep sea fishing and diving. Please note, there is currently no main swimming pool at Denis, but a new one is planned for later in 2019.

Robert Lever & Emily Stickler

All amazing! Though would have been better to have one of the cottages with a sea view rather than set back.
