Fregate Island Private
Anse Victorin Beach
Secluded, but not out of this world; precious, but not unattainable; fragile, but not untouchable …the ‘original luxury eco-retreat’ is a very fitting way to describe the beautiful hideaway that is Fregate Island Private, just 20-minutes by air from Mahe.
Fregate Island is an island of outstanding natural beauty; a uniquely peaceful setting of verdant, tropical interiors and fringed by seven dream beaches, each a brilliant sweep of powdery white sand, guarded by the iconic giant granite boulders typical of the Seychelles.
The preservation, protection and nurture of its unique flora and fauna are a fundamental raison d'être for Frégate Island Private, where a delicate symbiosis between tourism and nature is enshrined.
Fregate Island Private has just 17 villas; each constructed from mahogany, with thatch roofs and private infinity pools just steps from the powdery white sand beach.
Fregate Island Private has a wonderful spa, two infinity pools, two restaurants and two bars as well as options for romantic private dining, in the tree house or on the stunning beach. Fregate Island Private rates include all meals and non-alcoholic drinks.
Families are very welcome at Fregate Island and the Castaway Clubhouse is a fun meeting place for Frégate Island Private's young buccaneers.
What’s so Special?
Frégate Island’s seven beaches are among the most beautiful beaches in the world for swimming, snorkelling, diving and a variety of other water sports; for an unforgettable Champagne picnic; or just for some secluded sun worshipping.
Anse Victorin with its pure white sand fringed by palm trees is regularly voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Two of the beaches have ‘occupied’ signs – if you would like to have the beach all to yourselves – for the ultimate in privacy.
No day visitors are allowed to Fregate Island and with just 17 villas, the atmosphere is always tranquil and exclusive. Enjoy nature walks with resident ecologist Steve Hill to discover the endemic birdlife, Coco de Mer palms, ancient pirate lairs, and giant tortoises.
Frégate Island Private has its own source of fresh water and most of the fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs consumed on the island are home grown.
Bear in mind
Seclusion and tranquillity and a stunning natural environment are what make a stay on Fregate Island so special.
With only 16 villas and one Presidential Villa, Fregate Island Private offers luxury, space, security and seclusion within a tropical island setting of exuberant natural beauty.
Positioned to guarantee ultimate privacy, each of the 13 One Bedroom Villas (300-400 sq. m.) is built of native mahogany and clad in rich African Chamfuta Teak wood, blending harmoniously into its natural surroundings.
Most villas are set on the gently sloping hillside to maximise the views, although Number 1 and 2 villas are set in gardens low down, making them more suited for families.
The typical villa plan features square spaces rotated 45 degrees, maximising views of the ocean through two facades. The tropical feel of the buildings is intentionally casual, in keeping with the surroundings. Interior architecture is simple, natural and elegant.
Villas consist of one bedroom; one living room; interconnecting vestibule with dining facilities, one large bathroom; one small bathroom and two outdoor showers.
Each villa features a large terrace - with daybed and Jacuzzi - which flows from the interior as part of an extended living area.
Each villa has a designated private butler.
There are also 2 Two-Bedroom Villas (Villas 3 and 15), which offer 500 sq. m. of space, accommodating up to 6 people.
Two-bedroom villas feature two bedrooms; one living room; an interconnecting vestibule with dining facilities; two large bathrooms; one small bathroom; three outdoor showers; a large terrace with private pool, Jacuzzi; day bed and dining pavilion.
The Spa Villa (500 sq. m.) has a separate room for private spa treatments. This second room can be converted into a second bedroom instead.
Features in all villas:
- Air Con & Ceiling Fan
- Free Wi-Fi
- Flat Screen TV with Satellite channels
- CD & DVD players
- IDD Phone
- Tea & coffee making facilities
Frégate Island Private offers 5 different dining experiences, with cuisine influenced by the abundance and diversity of ingredients cultivated on Frégate Island.
Frégate Island Private has its own source of fresh water and most of the fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs consumed on the island are homegrown.
In addition to a vibrant profusion of naturally growing fruit - including mangos, papayas, guava, bilimbi (related to star fruit), coconuts, melons and bananas - a dedicated team of gardeners cultivate a wide range of organic produce in the island's plantation and Hydroponics House.
The gourmet menu at Frégate House features the Chef's daily selection of local produce, with dining available both in the restaurant and on the lower terrace.
Every evening the Plantation House – a museum by day – transforms into a romantic restaurant serving traditional Creole dishes and island specialities. This historical building evokes the island's heritage and is a wonderful venue for al fresco dining.
In addition to the restaurants and bars, guests can enjoy bespoke dining experiences anywhere on the island! Dinner in the Tree House, serenaded by birdsong, barbecues on the beach or at the Yacht Club, private candlelight dinners in the privacy of a villa – there are plentiful choices for romance.
The Pirate’s Bar, overlooking Anse Bambous, and the Anse Bambous Beach Bar also offer light snacks and drinks at lunch and dinner.
