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.
Thank you for your voicemail; it's so nice of you to follow up to see how our holiday was. We had an amazing time. Thanks again for an absolutely wonderful trip.

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.

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
