Four degrees south of the equator, a 20-minute flight away from Mahé, this private island of outstanding natural beauty; a uniquely peaceful setting of verdant, tropical interiors and abundant nature fringed by seven dream beaches, each a brilliant sweep of powdery white sand sentinelled by giant, iconic granite boulders. The preservation, protection and nurture of its unique flora and fauna has always been - and continues to be - a fundamental raison d'être for the Private Island. With only 16 villas and one Presidential Villa, guests are invited to experience the rare luxuries of space, security and seclusion within a tropical island setting of exuberant natural beauty.
Positioned to guarantee ultimate privacy, the villa is built of native mahogany and clad in rich African Chamfuta Teak wood, blending harmoniously into its natural surroundings. The 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; in addition to an indulgent private infinity pool, the villa features a large terrace - with day bed and Jacuzzi - which flows from the interior as part of an extended living area. Interior architecture is simple and elegant. The post and lintel structure is mirrored inside, framing picture-perfect views of the island; African Chamfuta Teak skirting boards edge cream Botticino marble floors, while vaulted roofs and Merbou timber framework faithfully reflect a diverse colonial architectural heritage. The Private Island introduced a comprehensive butler concept; a private butler is assigned the villa to assure personalised and individual services throughout the guest’s stay, providing anything, anytime, anywhere on the island.
Villa 103 lies high above on the plateau of the eastern strip of the Island and can only be reached over a private path. The residence offers a stunning view over the ocean, the nearby beaches, the marina and the rest of this green island.
- a huge open living area (approx. 150 sqm) with an additional small TV lounge (approx. 20 sqm)

The Rock Spa is a natural haven of serenity, nestled on a cliff-top plateau commanding panoramic views of the sea. Reached via a dramatic rock archway at the apex of a canyon of granite boulders and banyan roots, flanked by freshwater pools and cascading waterfalls, the spa celebrates the island's unique surroundings and embraces the traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water. Eschewing the commercialism of branded spa products and merchandise, the Rock Spa is a truly natural Seychellois spa experience which embraces the ecology of its unique surroundings.
In the Rock Spa’s own Apothecary, Madame Dibwa (derived from the French for “the fairy woman from the forest”) and her team of qualified therapists blend indigenous know-how with the principles of herbalism and aromatherapy to create unique scrubs, pastes and oils which form the basis of traditional treatments for relaxation, revitalisation, detoxification or specific ailments. The island-wide emphasis on the principle that ‘fresh is best’ ensures ever-changing daily specials on the spa menu, depending on which plants, fruits and herbs are in season.
Island Dining Experiences
In keeping with its committed approach to ecological issues. The Private Island continues to strengthen the connection between restaurant menus and island-grown produce. Influenced by the abundance and diversity of ingredients cultivated on the Island, the executive chef takes guests to new gastronomic heights with innovative demonstrations of the extraordinary flavours that nature can deliver. His inspired recipes are the expression of a distinctive culinary style applied to the freshest seasonal produce, ensuring every dish is unique in character and flavour and a true reflection of the bountiful tropical setting in which it is enjoyed; the island’s own plantation and hydroponics house ensure guests can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables every day.
In addition to the restaurants and bars, guests can enjoy bespoke dining experiences anywhere on the island is their oyster!
