I booked the North Isalnd as a pre-honeymoon trip after our engagement celebration, Im always looking for excuses to travel and thought this was an ideal and legitimate reason to have another getaway. I think I came across this stunning resort while surveying on some safari trips in Africa which we wanted to do for our official honeymoon. North Island itself is a huge conervation project with the aim to rehabilitae the endangered Seychelles fauna and flora and its wildlife and it can only be reached by helicopter.
There are only 11 luxury lodges on the island with your own exclusive butler. Each lodge is about 5000 square feet and is divided into master bedroom, huge bathroom, dining/living room area, kitchen, 2nd bedroom which can be used as spa room, outdoor deck and swimming pool. Each villa is decorated with Seychelles and African handcrafts with principle materials in wood, local stone and thatched roofs. The lodges are built with utmost concern in privacy and understated elegance and totally eco-sensitive.
You can choose to enjoy a unique and private experience in your own lodge or explore the island at your own pace either on foot, on the bikes or by buggie and keep the gigantic tortoises company (each has a name) which you will see througout the resort. You may simply choose to just lay by the beach and enjoy the sun or choose to go under water by snorkelling or diving as Seychelles has one of the best scuba diving sites.
The island has an amazing wine collection and the food is excellent. You basically can do whatever you want at whenever you wish, everything can be customized to your liking and preference and of course this comes with the price. The price is expensive and may be daunting but it does include everything except for the spa and one must put into consideration that we are not just paying for our room and food, we are sharing the entire island’s ongoing conservation work and all the endeavor to keep this island as unspoiled and pristine as it can be.
I believe every guest at North Island is spoiled and pampered to the extreme and every need is taken care of with utmost sincerity. The resort offers the very best in its service and facilties to provide absolute comfort, tranquility and privacy to everyone.
It is a heavenly place without a doubt, a special destination that turns into an unforgettable journey. It is by far the best resort I have been.
