Dragonfish Island Holiday

Indulge yourself at one of the most exclusive retreats in the world. Fabulously luxurious yet incredibly laidback, there’s nowhere quite like North Island.

Dragonfish Island Holiday: Summary

Dragonfish Island Holiday in a nutshell

Whether as the ultimate safari-ender or standalone Indian Ocean getaway, castaway romance or a luxury adventure with the family, it doesn’t get much better than four nights on the North Island.

A little over 2km long and 1km wide, Ile de Nord is a swift helicopter flip from Mahé. Touching down on paradise, you’ll be welcomed by some of the fantastic team here and shown to your presidential villa, nestled among trees facing one of the island’s three beaches.

From here on in, the island is yours to explore whenever and however takes your fancy. On land, take your buggy, bikes or walk to sugar-soft sand and follow trails to meet the lumbering giant tortoises that are lucky enough to live here year-round and learn about the Noah’s Ark Island rehabilitation programme. Take kayaks and paddle boards out on warm Indian Ocean waters and explore vibrant reefs beneath by snorkel or from the island’s dive centre. Boats open up neighbouring islands and fishing trips, or simply relax at the spa. A range of activities especially for children can also be arranged.

Dining is always an experience and completely personalized. In your villa, beach-side restaurant, lounge or in a private secluded spot, enjoy daily menus changing with the latest Island harvest. The wine cellar has plenty to discover too!

North Island lodge in the Seychelles is one of the most luxurious and exclusive retreats in the world. It is beautifully set on an island larger than Monte Carlo, which is also called North Island. Beside the amazing location, North Island is marked out by its stylish design, outstanding service and excellent food. For us, its fascinating ecology – and genuine commitment to ecological restoration – also make it very attractive.
