I can truly say—been there done that—and it seriously is as amazing, breathtaking as the photos show. Having spent 5 glorious days on North Island in Seychelles, I can highly recommend this magnificent property.
P.S.—none of my own images as I’ve spent the entire time in my bikini—those are for my husband’s eyes only!
Set foot on your own private island in the Seychelles. Infinite, exclusive space where the embrace of lush tropical palms and giant granite peaks dwarf your presence with their drama. With just 11 villas on this property, your footprints will be the only evidence on the Island’s vast, untouched beaches
North Island epitomizes the freedom that complete privacy allows, extraordinary experiences, perfectly personalized to your preferences, and service that is generously big-hearted. The Island’s abundance naturally extends to the luxury of choice that a peerless all-inclusive offering provides. Experience a true barefoot-luxury escape on North Island.
North Island is so much more than a luxury holiday destination – it’s a way of life. A perfect fusion of energy and relaxation, of indulgence and wellness, of luxury and giving back. North Island is an experience in contrasts – rough and smooth, old and new, wet and dry, casual and refined. The island literally changes color from day to night as the palette changes from cool hues of sage, blue and turquoise to warmer shades of orange, red and coral. This daily journey through the color spectrum inspires many of our décor and lighting details.
North Island features just eleven private guest villas, offering each guest an unparalleled sense of exclusivity and luxury. Our villas have all been created from local materials harvested during the island rehabilitation process, balancing luxury and simplicity to form a signature architectural style we call “barefoot luxury”. Your villa will become your own private beach home. The colors evoke the marine environment and the fusion of rough and smooth textures and simple and sophisticated forms combine to create an entirely authentic, contextual, and sumptuous sanctuary.
Your experience on this private island is completely customized to the holiday you are seeking. The rules on North Island are the ones you make yourselves: your schedule is only as full as you wish it to be, and the dress code reflects your own personal style. During 2014, the latest softs and décor refurbishment introduced a refreshed color palette, designer bathroom fittings, and re-emphasized sense of place – all ensuring that North Island continues to set the global standard for luxury private island hideaways.
It’s an experience that cannot easily be distilled into a few words – it’s your own bespoke holiday experience, all about you and your perfect Island moments. The North Island team is dedicated to giving you the best possible experience, whatever that might mean to you. Every detail is carefully thought out and customized to your perfect holiday vision. Whether you come here in search of rest or play, recuperation or exhilaration, we will make it all happen just the way you want, so that you experience North Island in your own unique way.

Villa North Island
Also known as Villa 11, Villa North Island is perched on the granite boulders at the far end of East Beach and is the quintessence of privacy and seclusion. The sheer volume, scale and luxury of this villa are unimaginably decadent as it spreads out across multi-tiered levels, cascading down through a coconut grove, with direct beach access to the ocean below.
At 750sqm (just over 8 000 square feet), Villa North Island offers ample room for your mind to float free and for all your island fantasies to become a stylish, spacious reality. From the surprise of the concealed entrance across a leadwood bridge to the wooden waterfall of decks descending to the beach, Villa North Island offers the perfect setting for your honeymoon.
With an over-sized marble bathtub – ideal for sharing – and perfect sunrise views, this is the ultimate North Island experience and the last word in honeymoon luxury and romance.
