North Island, Nowned by the North Island Company Limited, is located approximately 30 kilometres northeast of Mahe Island, the main and largest island in Seychelles.

Featuring 11 private villas with panoramic oceanfront views, the 4,890-square-foot villas will provide guests with plenty of room to fully unwind and enjoy the island style experience.

In addition to the resort’s villas, the property will feature a lounge, dining room, state-of-the-art spa and gym, infinity pool, and sunset bar and restaurant located on the western side of the island.

North Island’s Library will also offer guests a natural history collection. In addition to housing a large selection of books and artifacts, the library also plays host to immersive marine life presentations and environmental programmes.

"Seychelles is a true Luxury Collection destination, and one that we have been keen to offer to global explorers for quite some time," said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, The Luxury Collection.

"Home to some of the world’s most beautiful islands, the Seychelles archipelago is an untouched paradise with over 115 islands to discover. The Luxury Collection is thrilled to announce the joining of North Island later this year."

Inspirational natural beauty

Led by architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, the property’s environmentally friendly architecture draws inspiration from the natural beauty of the destination. Each room features local materials including wood, local stone and glass, all of which are individually handcrafted by Seychellois and African artisans, along with natural thatched roofs to complete the magnificent design.

South African-based interior design firm Life captured the spirit of elegance and quiet authenticity that is characteristic of North Island, with an organic aesthetic influenced by the destination’s unparalleled beauty and a plethora of vegetation.

North Island offers adventurous activities including scuba diving, sea kayaking, boating, fishing, yoga and snorkelling. Guests can connect with the indigenous offerings while making a minimal impact on the environment, which is the main philosophy of the island and resort.

Speaking about the signing, Bruce Simpson, MD of North Island Company Limited, said: "We are delighted to join The Luxury Collection’s exclusive and unique portfolio. North Island is the ideal fit for a brand offering truly indigenous experiences and we look forward to building on the position of the island as one of the world’s most desirable private island resorts."
