DescriptionVilla North Island, Seychelles.
As the chosen venue for Will and Kate’s honeymoon, you can expect something pretty special. Villa North Island in the Seychelles is one of 11 stunning villas on this paradise private island resort, and is arguably the ‘pièce de résistance’. It stands alone on a rock with its toes in the water surrounded by takamaka trees with views to die for across East Beach towards Mahé, Praslin and La Digue
Accessed by a bridge made of tree trunks, Villa North Island is an architectural gem – think 5-star fantasy Robinson Crusoe with winding walkways and sliding glass walls. It’s a fusion of traditional island design and contemporary luxury to create a stylish beach hideaway like no other.
Villa North Island's bathroom is more of a personal spa experience and is designed to soothe the soul – there’s an enormous two metre bath and an outdoor shower hanging off a granite boulder, with the water cascading from a hollowed out casourina log - all with a view of the turquoise ocean.
The island has everything you could want to make you never want to leave; you could take the kayaks out for a paddle, go fishing, or take a boat trip to a nearby island. There is even a PADI dive centre so you can explore the spectacular coral reef surrounding the island. Browse the books in the library, float on the stunning 45m infinity pool or indulge in a rejuvenating massage treatment in the privacy of your own villa. The spa therapists offer guests individual consultations to personal treatments to suit you. Or perhaps just have a drink in the bar on Grand Anse beach and take in the epic sunsets.
The island is about more than just luxury and pristine beauty. It was build with the environment in mind and is committed to respecting and conserving the local wildlife. Indigenous species have now been re-introduced and guests are invited to participate in the conservation programmes.
