Denis Private Island

Denis Island

Unplug, unburden and unwind in this restful island paradise.

From the moment you touchdown on stunning Denis Private Island, all connections to the outside world are left far behind. An ideal destination for couples or families, here you’ll re-discover the most precious commodity: uninterrupted time to spend with loved ones. There is no in-room internet and no cable television. You won’t find a signal for your mobile phone. Digital distractions are kept to a minimum, allowing guests to focus on and reconnect with each other. Sometimes the simpler pleasures are the most fulfilling; walk together on one of the most isolated, sparsely travelled beaches in all the world or paddle through a sparkling lagoon. With a mere 25 residences on the 375-acre island, a constant pervasive sense of calm is ensured. Whether lounging in your private beachside cottage or immersed in the island's densely forested nature trails, the soothing sound of the sea is always in earshot.

Scattered at various walking distances from the beach and separated by the island’s natural vegetation, each of the 25 free-standing cottages and villas on Denis Private Island boasts complete, undisturbed privacy. Spacious, open rooms showcase unique indigenous culture with simple, refined Seychellois décor. Open-air bathrooms with double vanities and alfresco showers combined with shaded garden courtyards harness nature’s calming influence to create relaxing havens. Beach Cottages located directly on the sand make excellent use of the superb surroundings with well-furnished sea-facing verandas and sun loungers. For that extra special touch, upgrade to a Deluxe Beach Cottage, featuring personal salas and day beds, perfect for reclining in the sun.


For such an intimate destination, guests will be surprised to discover just how many different activities are on offer. Snorkelling and kayak equipment are provided alongside the resort's own PADI Dive Centre, which extends beginner scuba courses to explore the island’s surrounding waters, teeming with colourful marine life. A naturalist's dream, Denis Private Island is an important wildlife sanctuary with one of the largest populations of nesting Green Turtles in the inner islands. Witness the miracle of hatching sea turtles on the beach or spot rare birds in the undergrowth. Take a guided tour around the island, hike and cycle its gentle trails, or unwind with billiards or tennis. Sport fishing can be arranged with a private boat charter to “The Drop-Off,” deep, hallowed waters at the edge of the Seychelles plateau perfect for prized catches of big game. After an action-packed day, book an outdoor spa treatment under the casuarina trees, where you’ll find the only distractions to be the gentle lapping of waves and the occasional chirp of the fairy terns.
