The Republic of Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands anchored in the western part of the Indian Ocean. Seventy-three of these islands are founded upon coral while the rest, including Frégate, are granitic. The nation’s capital is Victoria, on the island of Mahé. Its people are known as the Seychellois.

Frégate is a twenty minute flight east from Mahé. It lies four degrees south of the equator, and far, far away from the clatter of modern life: approximately 1,000 miles south of India, 1,000 miles east of Africa, and 1,000 miles north-east of Madagascar. A French colony in 1770, the Seychelles was annexed by the British in 1811, became an autonomous colony in 1975, and achieved full independence in 1976.

The island is small, which makes it ideal for exploring on foot. It covers a mere 740 acres (1.15 square miles, or 3 square kilometers). The highest point is Mount Signal, which reaches a peak of 125 meters (410 feet). The year round temperature is 24-27° Celsius (75-86° Fahrenheit), and because the Seychelles lies outside of the cyclone belt severe weather is highly unlikely.

To maintain Frégate Island’s tranquility and beauty without impacting the delicate balance of its ecosystem, Seychelles Island Resort Villa voluntarily restricts itself to just sixteen 185-square-metre (2,000-square-foot) villas. Built from traditional materials such as native mahogany and African teak in a simple post-and-lintel style, the villas are topped off with dense thatched roofs. Both the architecture and decor draw on Balinese and Thai influences. Fourteen of the villas sit on top of the cliffs with panoramic views over the Indian Ocean. Two more nestle in their own private tropical gardens, and these are particularly good choices for families vacationing with young children.

Each villa was situated to make it feel like a part of the surrounding landscape, and to ensure maximum privacy and seclusion for the guests. Sliding glass walls and French doors that can be opened to the elements help to further blur the line that separates inside from outside.

While many guests find that the relaxing atmosphere is perfect for doing nothing, there are plenty of activities for the more energetic.

The 47-foot luxury teak launch, Bemfujjo, is ideal for excursions out to sea, or you can go game fishing on the 37-foot Little Frégate Bird. Her sister vessel, the 43-foot motor yacht Frégate Bird, is also available for charter. Bring home your catch of the day and one of the chefs will serve it to you for dinner.

There’s a fully equipped gym, a fresh water swimming pool, an extensive library and a children’s game room. Golfers can head to the course on nearby Praslin Island.

To help you discover the island unparalleled wildlife, island ecologists are on hand to guide hikes through the island’s tropical jungles and along its rugged coastline.

Instruction and certification in scuba diving and snorkeling is available at the PADI-certified dive center. To the north of Frégate is Chimney Rocks, one of many popular diving locations where you can explore the dazzling underwater world that encircles the island.

You can mountain bike your way along trails that cross the island, go Hobie Cat sailing, book a sunset cruise or simply stay at home and have a massage on your deck.
