Stunning Frégate Island affords the ultimate in barefoot luxury, with 7 pristine beaches to enjoy and home to 2000 Giant Aldabra Tortoises that are free to roam around the island. Heavily involved in conservation, the island is an ideal choice for anyone interested in the natural world, with Frégate aiding in the preservation of endemic birdlife, marine species and the turtles and tortoises for which the Seychelles are famous. The planting of thousands of indigenous tress has also helped to restore the ecology of the area, which isn't marked by the intrusion of bold accommodation; instead the 16 well crafted Residences and the Banyan Hill Estate blend quietly with their surrounds.
Set into the coastline the Residences all feature private infinity pools and high levels of privacy. Take it easy in the Jacuzzi or enjoy Indian Ocean views from the terrace. The Banyan Hill Estate is a slightly more luxurious option and offers a personal chef, maid and private butler along with a stunning hilltop setting that overlooks the beaches and harbour. However, for those in search of the ultimate island escape Frégate can be hired out exclusively. The resort offers innumerable facilities and activities, but to name a few guests can expect mouth watering cuisine served at charming restaurants, a private harbour and Yacht Club, a relaxing spa, pools and a wine tasting cellar.
A 15 minute helicopter or light aircraft flight from Mahe Island. Alternatively, 1 hour 30mins by boat.
Exploring the island, mountain biking trails, outstanding spa, gym & fitness centre, stargazing programme, helicopter excursions to other islands, PADI certified diving courses, fishing, plus a range of water sports including sailing. For the ultimate private beach experience, you even have the opportunity to reserve one of the island's idyllic beaches, Anse Macquereau, all to yourself for a day!
