Named after the bird that inhabits the area, Fregate Island is just a 20-minute flight from Mahé and rises 125 metres out of the Indian Ocean. This tropical paradise covers three square kilometres and is the most remote and secluded of the Seychelles granite islands. With no more than 40 guests at a time, you'll experience a rare treat of luxury, security and seclusion within the natural beauty of a tropical island setting.
Fregate Island has only 16 villas, each positioned to ensure ultimate privacy and built from native mahogany to blend into the natural surroundings. The tropical feel of the buildings is casual, yet the accommodation is luxuriously appointed with large terraces, day beds and Jacuzzis. Light and spacious interiors house colonial-style furniture and state-of-the-art technology.
Offering a host of activities on, in and under the water, Fregate Island has two freshwater pools and seven beaches - one of which, Anse Victorin, is renowned as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Explore the ocean aboard a hobie cat or kayak, go game fishing aboard the island's launches or take a boat trip to a remote island. Ashore there's a fully equipped gym and an extensive library, while the Cast Away Club keeps younger guests entertained.
In the evening, the Plantation House on Fregate Island is a romantic restaurant serving traditional Creole dishes and island specialities. This historical building is a wonderful venue for open-air dining. Alternatively, Fregate House offers a gourmet menu featuring the Chef's daily selection of local produce, and guests can also dine in the privacy of their own villa or at the Beach Bar at Anse Bambous.
