Denis Private Island
Why we like it
- Denis Private Island is a remote coral private island and is the perfect island escape
- Children of all ages are welcome and the island is the perfect playground for them to discover and learn
- A 30 minute flight from the main island of Mahé, flights are daily
- The island is yours - Do as you will, without disturbing others" is the owner's motto
- A small professional PADI affiliated dive centre offers courses for novice and advanced divers
In the privacy of your garden courtyard rejuvenate and reconnect with a spa treatment using the transforming power of nature, essential oils, fine sand from the beach and other natural products.
The Four Seasons Resort Seychelles was excellent, as was the service provided by virtually every member of staff. The fast-track in-villa check in, along with the small cake, bottle of champagne and card to congratulate us on our wedding was a really lovely touch and much appreciated.

25 island-style cottages sit among casuarina and coconut trees, bordering the beach. Each has a high woven coconut-grass ceiling and a comfy double bed, romantically draped with mosquito nets and the softest Indian cotton sheets. The private bathroom opens onto a private courtyard. A sitting area is equipped with a mini-fridge, while private verandas face the sea. The newly renovated Beach Villa (325 m² in size) has an extended sea facing private deck with an outdoor sitting and dining area. The villa also has a plunge pool and a sala day bed. If you are travelling with children, the Family Villa has a master bedroom and two additional twin beds.
To add to the charm of this desert island escape, there are no televisions in the rooms and no mobile phone signal. Wi-Fi is available in the library only at a charge. The Denis Private Island lagoon is full of triggerfish, clownfish, parrotfish, pirouetting rays, gliding turtles and a morning spent snorkelling will unveil myriad life forms and stunning backdrops. Whale sharks and manta rays are often sighted from September to November.

March - November
The islands of the Seychelles enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate, generally governed by two opposing trade winds. The south-easterly trades blow from May to September bringing drier and windier conditions ideal for sailing. From October to March the gentler north-west trades provide calmer seas but a higher chance of refreshing showers. Scuba divers will find April, May, October and November have the warmest seas and visibility is often 30 metres plus
