Wilderness Collection North Island, Seychelles
The Wilderness Collection North Island is unashamedly aimed at providing the very best in privacy and accommodation on this island paradise, your home away from home. Stunning white beaches surround a tropical interior of coconut palms and takamaka trees in turn cradled between three granite outcrops and surrounded by the azure ocean.
Enjoy the splendid isolation of the island in your luxurious well situated Villa.
Positioned some 30km from the main island of Mahé, North Island (Ile du Nord) enjoys solitude within the Inner Island group of the Seychelles.
Our luxurious Villas have been built using, where possible, materials reaped from the island rehabilitation process. In doing this the aim has been to capture the essence of “barefoot luxury”.
Each Presidential Villa was individually handcrafted by Seychellois and African craftsmen on the island from wood, local stone and glass, with thatched roofs that complete the magnificent design and is completely self-contained, raised over a metre off the ground to catch the cooling island breezes.
Each Villa has two air conditioned bedrooms, a main bedroom and a second bedroom-cum-lounge and study. At night the lounge can be changed into a private cinema complete with projector, screen and surround sound. A luxuriously proportioned master bedroom with change-room and dressing table leads onto a large en-suite bathroom with marble bath and two showers, one indoor and one outdoor. Sliding doors allow for uninterrupted views onto the lawns and the turquoise seas in front of each Villa. Facilities include satellite television, a DVD/CD system and wireless Internet access, kitchenette leading off the lounge/dining area, private plunge pool and Sala.
Most Villas are nestled discreetly in the tree-line, facing onto Anse d’est Beach. Villa North Island has however been designed differently to accommodate the incline along the extreme northern side of the Anse d’est Beach and is secretly tucked away in the takamaka forest. The beach view from this Villa is truly spectacular from every angle and it is this, together with the unique manipulation of the deck design and space that separates this remarkable Villa from the rest.
Each Villa has its own dedicated Island Buggy. These electric powered golf cars giving guests the freedom to move around the Island.
Restaurant / Bar
North Island cuisine is based on the very finest natural products lovingly prepared in a sumptuous array of exotic dishes. The cuisine of North Island is based on the diversity and cultural influences which, in part, make up the Seychellois Créole flavour. The food concept has grown from a Créole base with French, Indian and African influences, to one of a more global offering. Daily menus are defined daily with specific Créole, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and English flare as opposed to influences on a defined food type.
Vegetable and herb gardens on the island produce only the freshest food combinations to reach the table in the dining environment of the guests’ choice – whether on the beach, in the Villa, restaurant or Sunset Bar. The richness of the surrounding ocean is exemplified by the abundance of fresh fish.
Combined with the tropical, organic resources of North Island and the variety on offer from Mahé, guests can expect a feast that will awaken all of their senses.
There is the “any menu” concept of dining on the island where guests are encouraged to advise our chefs of their specific food preferences. Although a daily menu is prepared, using this information gathered from the guests and with an option for each meal, special menus are encouraged and designed for the individual. Another dining experience is available at the Sunset Bar where the chef is able to prepare a private culinary journey, a barbeque or simply a homemade pizza in a wood-burning oven.
The impressive wine cellar with some of the world’s great wines and champagnes allows guests, under the guidance of experts if needed, to select a vintage to suit their palates.
