Fregate Private Island Star Rating Image

Fregate Private Island is a secluded paradise, 4 degrees south of the equator and 55 kilometers (35 miles) off Seychelles' Mahé coast. Guests will discover the castaway idyll of their dreams amidst relaxed luxury.

Nestled amidst the flora and fauna by the sea are 16 residences crafted in Balau wood, each with private pool and beach buggy. Guests are greeted by their personal butler who is dedicated to making sure their every desire is fulfilled.

Dining is completely bespoke from boat to beach, in the treetops or the Plantation house, featuring the abundant natural produce fresh from the gardens and sea. Executive Chef Alan Larch says: we grow over 120 varieties of vegetables, fruits, spices and herbs. The taste of home-grown herbs, the scent of fresh coffee and tamarind altogether imprint the senses.

Fregate Island Private has seven extraordinarily beautiful beaches, coral reefs and jungle trails: it is an Eden of discovery for children and adults.

Fregate Private Island Activities

Our Nature Walks with our resident Conservationists are a highly inspiring and encouraging journey into the island's ecosystem that give you a deeper understanding of the role conservation plays in our island life. You are also more than welcome to assist and observe them in some of the field work they do, for example, searching for tiny sea turtle hatchlings emerging from their nests or checking nest boxes for eggs or chicks. In our Tortoise Adoption programme, you can also make a valuable contribution to protecting and sustaining the island's flora and fauna.

You can explore the winding mountain trails by hiking or explore the island on buggy trips. Alternatively you may also take one of our mountain bikes.

The air-conditioned gym facility by the Rock Spa is open for your workouts, including a personal trainer if required. Our resident instructor offers yoga lessons at any time of day.

Our Stargazing programme lets you explore the night sky.

Further, we can make arrangements for helicopter rides to other islands or golfing destinations.
