North Island is a 250-hectare mini-paradise where self-indulgence and eco-tourism fuse seamlessly. It offers its visitors nature-inspired luxury all wrapped up in the untouched beauty of the Seychelles. Just eleven ylang-ylang thatched villas are secreted away amidst the island’s verdant foliage, each one a generous 450 square metres in size (the Villa North Islandbeing 750 square metres) and distinguishedby their fashionably rustic designs and use of raw and rough materials. Chunky oversized furnishings and subtle natural colours combine with sunken baths, canopied daybeds and private pools to establish the general theme, with refrigerators, tea/coffee makers, DVDs, CD players and wireless internet connection all catering for contemporary demands. Of course, private villa attendants are on hand to cater to your every whim. By day, the choice generally falls between guilt-free relaxation or non-stop adventure. The meanderingswimming pool, trio of beaches and holistic spa treatments are perfect for the former; the snorkelling, scuba-diving, birding, fishing trips and guided sea kayaking and walking trips catering for the latter. At night you can dine on the delicious Creole and seafood dishes in your villa or join the other guests in the charming Piazza overlooking the ocean –you may actually prefer the latter as chances are the only socialising you’ve done during the day is with one of the giant tortoises you’ve spotted on one of your walks.
