Fregate Island Private

Located in The Seychelles, this private island paradise is approximately three square kilometers in size. With its fine sand beaches, tropical jungle, fruit and vegetable plantations, Frégate is home to rare animals and plants.  From Mahé it can be reached by Helicopter or Twin Otter within 20 minutes.

Frégate Island’s unique attributes – such as its peaceful setting; the abundance of nature; its character and charm; the highly successful ecological program; the award-winning Rock Spa; and an outstanding gourmet experience with island-grown produce - make it a paradise for nature lovers, honeymooners and families.  Exclusivity in every respect is the maxim of Frégate Island and the preservation and protection of the island’s unique flora and fauna is one of its proudest achievements.  With 16 Private Pool Residences and one Banyan Hill Estate, only a selected number of guests have the prestige to fulfill their dream of a stay in paradise. The island remains private to Frégate guests only, making it an ideal refuge for the discerning traveler, ensuring the rare feeling of a truly tropical island paradise.

Fregate Island Private has 16 exclusive villas and one presidential villa for a selected number of guests.  The villas, decorated by the renowned American interior design firm Wilson & Associates, blend with the surroundings and are positioned so that privacy is guaranteed. Two villas built, with the needs of families with children in mind, stand on sheltered meadows while the other villas are built into the cliffs.

The 13 Private Pool Residences have 400-500 square metres and include a living room, a large bedroom, two bathrooms, terrace, large infinity pool and pavilion. Hand-carved wood, precious silk and Egyptian cotton create a cozy atmosphere.  Integrated glass walls in various rooms allow for a view of the ocean, the sky and the surrounding vegetation. The private sun terrace, with adjustable sunshade, beckons guests to spend their days and evenings outside.  The Private Pool Twin Residences and the Private Pool Spa Residence have approx. 600 -750 square meters. The second bedroom has the same features as the first bedroom except that there are twin beds. The Spa Residence has a mini spa with a bathroom, which can also be converted into a second bedroom.  All residences are attended by a certified private butler, who takes care of every wish his guests might have. He is available all day long.  Furthermore each villa provides telephone, wireless internet access, TV, DVD / CD player, air-conditioning and a ceiling fan.  

The Banyan Hill Estate lies high above on the plateau of the eastern strip of Frégate Island Private and can only be reached over a private path. The estate offers a stunning view over the ocean, the nearby beaches, the marina and the rest of this green island. 

Frégate Island Private can also be booked exclusively on occasions such as fairytale dream weddings, family reunions or special company events.

The island’s own plantation & hydroponics is the guarantee that guests can enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables every day.  Frégate House offers a daily gourmet menu featuring the Chef’s selection of local produce at its peak. Dining in Frégate House is available on the lower terrace and also in the restaurant. The restaurant catches the evening sea breezes through open windows.  Plantation House serves authentic Créole Style à la carte cuisine. This historical building evokes the memories of the early settlers and is a wonderful venue for open air dining. The Plantation House is closed seasonally due to bird nesting.  

The Pirate’s Bar and Anse Bambous Beach Bar are offering light snacks and drinks at lunch and dinner.  The wine cellar competes with the most famous hotel restaurants in the world and we are proud to present to guests a variety of wines from all around the globe, including important labels, varietal and vineyards. These wines are also offered for wine tastings.  The wine cellar also offers a dining facility for a group of up to 10 guests.

In addition to the two restaurants, guests can enjoy their meals anywhere and anytime they like: in the tree house, barbecues on the beach or at the yacht club, private candlelit dinners in the privacy of the villa or any other setting of their choice.  During the Garden Table Experience, the chef accompanies guests on a tour of the plantation and hydroponics house and explains the diverse vegetables, fruits and herbs growing on the island.  Afterwards guests enjoy a delicious barbecue lunch in the chef’s garden, freshly prepared by the chef using ingredients picked during the tour.  The lookout at Glacis Cerf, with its spectacular views over the island, is an inviting spot for guests to enjoy High Tea.

Located on one of the island’s peaks, the Rock Spa with its 4 suites for treatments stands at more than 4,500 sqm in spectacular natural surroundings. The spa offers an exclusive range of retreat packages based on over 140 different ingredients growing all over the island. There is an on-site apothecary and a Zen / Yoga garden with meditation coves.  In the Rock Gym our guest have a wonderful view into the green of Frégate. A trail surrounded by huge banyan trees offers a 360° view over the island and is the perfect location for various outside training activities.

The most exclusive boutique and gallery in the Seychelles offers bespoke sandals and clutch bags embellished with Swarovski crystals, Zentoosh pashmina shawls and the Frégate private label collection, which are showcased alongside handcrafted gifts and home décor furnishings inspired by the nature on the island. Guests can organize private viewings with their butler to truly appreciate the collected works.

The seven dream beaches of Frégate are among the most beautiful in the world for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and a variety of other water sports or for simply enjoying a Champagne picnic.  Swimming pools: Two swimming pools are available below Frégate House on the way to Anse Bambous – the spectacular 25m Active Pool and a romantic Relaxation Pool.  A third plunge pool is located at the Rock Spa for guest use during treatments, and each villa is equipped with its own infinity pool. Frégate Island Private has its own marina with a fleet of boats – including kayaks, small sailboats, yachts, catamarans and motor yachts for deep-sea fishing and excursions. Scuba diving excursions to the fascinating underwater world of the coral reefs can also be arranged.  Other Water sports available are windsurfing, scuba diving (PADI), waterski, banana boat.

Shaded paths lead throughout the island. There are 10 different nature walks along the coast or straight through the tropical jungle where guests can explore the island’s interior and discover the exotic flora and fauna.  The tour to “Mont Signal”, a 125-metre high granite rock, is particularly rewarding and a range of other guided nature walks can be arranged.  Other sports include tennis, volleyball, badminton, bocce ball, mountain biking and jogging.  A library, with a large selection of books in various languages, videos and CD’s, is open to guests. The Yacht Club offers a little bar and a billiard table. The inviting small terrace is furnished with hammocks.
