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.

Guest Testimonial

Make sure you find time to explore the island which includes a 100-year old lighthouse and densely forested interior. Look out for Toby the tortoise (about the same age as the lighthouse) and the tiny chapel. Tour the gardens and the farm, which ensures the island is more or less self-sufficient. Meal times are a feast of locally grown produce and freshly caught seafood cooked on the open-grill. Or, for a treat, spend an evening dining in the wine cellar. Relaxing days on Denis can be spent sea-fishing, diving, shell-collecting or simply walking on the pristine beach.

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 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 cottage 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 FOC (free of 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
