NORTH ISLAND

My last stop in Seychelles was at the legendary North Island. With only 11 villas and accessible only by helicopter, it doesn’t get more private.

North Island has been a top choice for honeymoon trips or sunshine getaways by many personalities such as Prince William & Kate, George & Amal Clooney, Brad and Angelina Jolie, etc. so I was quite excited to finally discover this island.

If you have been following me on Instagram, you probably saw we flew straight from Mahe on a helicopter from Zil Air, the only operator of Seychelles.

The private ride takes approx. 15-20 minutes depending on weather conditions and gives you such a scenic view of Seychelles from the top!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the resident manager and the Guest Relation who took care of us and escorted us to our villa.

We found many giant turtles on our way so we couldn’t obviously resist taking some photos with them! They are so cute, aren’t they?

The Villa & Beach

If you have been following my Instagram, you probably saw the Insta-stories with the private tour I did of our 450m2 villa. It was the biggest one-bedroom villa we have ever stayed!

It includes 2 bathroom facilities, a closet, a bedroom, a kitchenette, a terrace, a living and dining room, a pool, a huge garden and a home theatre + direct access to the beach.

Breakfast would be served every day at 8 AM from our amazing butler, Elaia, who would also collect our laundry every day and arrange for us any activity we would like.

From a special evening watching Casablanca in our private home theatre to an exotic bath decorated with palm trees, Elaia got everything covered.

The Infinity Pool 

The Infinite Pool was my favorite place on the Island! With incredible views of the beach and hidden between palm trees it was always empty and I was alone all the time with the pool just for myself! How cool is this?

Views from the Top

Diogo and I love to do hikes! Thanks to our guide, we reached the highest point of the Island in a short 20 minutes hike.

The view was fabulous and we could even see Silhouette Island as we had a 360º panoramic view!

We are going to miss so much North Island and Seychelles in general!

We were very impressed by the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Islands we visited, being North our ultimate choice for a romantic and private getaway involving fantastic beaches, warm weather, and plenty of sunshine.
