One of the world’s most exclusive resorts, North Island is a private island paradise nestled deep in the Indian Ocean that extends its unique spirit to a handful of guests only allowing to rekindle the sense of well-being and unity with nature.There is no pressure and no clock-watching on North Island – you can do as much or as little as it pleases you. My itinerary was completely tailor-made by my lovely butler and personalized to my individual wishes; from activities to dining on a private beach and out-of-this-world experiences. The private super well equipped kitchen in the vast villa offered anything my heart desired and more. My personal golf cart was always put in the direction of departure, after I left it coming in, by magic it got turned around!
In today’s day and age, we are all increasingly looking for that destination, that one place where we can get away from it all and reconnect with what is truly meaningful to us; the place where we can disconnect from our frenetic lives and rediscover nature, our loved ones and even ourselves. North Island, Seychelles is just that magical place anyone dreams of!
North Island provides an inimitable luxurious, eco-friendly and sustainable setting focused on the true essence of ‘barefoot luxury’. The pristine, organic environment sets the tone for a truly holistic holiday for the conscious traveller seeking peace and tranquillity. Aren’t we all?
To relax on the powdery private white beaches of North Island, strolling along the various routes to the peak of Spa Hill overlooking East Beach and taking in the breath-taking sunrise are the simple but unforgettable moments in a true paradise. To simply watch the sun slip below the horizon whilst enjoying a drink on West Beach is the setting we all dream of. Robinson Crusoe in luxury I am telling myself, as the golf cart makes his way passing giant tortoises over to the West Beach.
In the morning salute the sun with a morning yoga session and follow it with a day at the North Island Spa giving in completely to the island lifestyle. The view from the Spa is breathtaking. A focus on wellness is never really complete without an emphasis on healthy eating and being aware of where one’s food comes from. North Island has long been renowned for its fertility and also for the richness of the fishing grounds wherein it nestles. It didn’t surprise me that it draws upon these exceptional natural resources for a unique dining experience. From the set-up to the dishes all is perfect, the ambiance counts and when in combination with excellent food and wine, could you long for more?
The cuisine is deeply connected to the spirit of the Island and the food philosophy is rooted in fresh, seasonal and relevant produce. The island’s chef designs menu suggestions on a daily basis according to the latest harvest from the organic vegetable garden or what has been foraged from the Island.
The true luxury is uninterrupted time that allows us to reconnect with that which is bigger than ourselves and North Island gave me just that and in abundance.
