North Island

Off the shore of Mahé in the Seychelles, wild beaches and lush vegetation make the nest of the North Island luxury hotel and its audacious design. Until recently, the island was deserted, and today hosts a dozen of magnificent villas facing the beach, whose style recalls the atmosphere of an African lodge. Member of the Wilderness Safaris Collection, North Island has taken a scrupulously ecologic approach to adapt the Robinson Crusoe theme to the hotel : raw wood and driftwood, palm roofs, volcanic rocks, natural fabrics, pebble walls in the bathroom and big openings facing the trade winds. The wooden terraces with whirlpools and the large sofas offer the opportunity to laze around. This heaven-like refuge which mixes raw material with design style can only be reached by helicopter.
