North Island - Seychelles

Posted: Mar. 20th, 2008  |  By JustLuxe Team


Luxury Vacations: If you are in pursuit of an ultra pristine destination that has been voted best in the world by Conde Nast Traveller (UK), as one of the 100 Best Places to stay in 2006 by the Robb Report, and as Hideaway of the Year by Hideaways Magazine, then let me intrigue you just a bit more...

Its history is a uniquely fascinating tale: what used to house a coconut distillery and a cinnamon plantation, the island became overrun by rats, pigs and ferrel cattle, overgrown by weeds and coconut trees after the distillery closed down in 1970. Almost 30 years later, a South African wilderness outfitter, Wilderness Safaris, assumed control of and took to restoring the entire island, reintroducing native flora and fauna, making the island a flawlessly ideal sanctuary. It was no easy task, and but well worth the reward.

Situated off the coast of East Africa, North Island resort boasts impeccable privacy, and tailor-made personalized services, all designed to "spoil" you with the most amazing experience. The island has only 11 guest villas secretly tucked away in the Takamaka forest and exquisitely designed to celebrate and honor the environment. There is a "no menu" concept on the island. Using organic resources, meals are custom-made once the chef takes into consideration individual food preferences. In a place of extreme natural beauty, the luxury spa plan is designed with holistic treatments meant to rejuvenate the body, mind and soul.

The essence of North Island remains a sustainable natural treasure. From the beginning, the endeavor's purpose has been to turn back the ecological clock 200 years through rehabilitation of the land. The new owner's called it the "Noah's Ark" concept, and are re-introducing many endangered species over time. Visitors are likewise encouraged to take part in the conservation project.

Far removed from the modern world, the experience at North Island is simply catered to you. Every probable wish has already been anticipated. So kick back and enjoy a sundowner as you glance over the crystal clear waters, soaking up some unspoiled island magic. You'll thank me later.
