Remote, romantic and super luxurious – this tiny private island just four degrees south of the equator is where Robinson Crusoe would live in his dreams. The unbelievable natural beauty and seclusion, each villa is surrounded by its own lush tropical garden, really gives you the sense of being off the grid (without compromising on comfort). The Rock Spa, perched high in the hills, features treatments focused on restoring balance and energy using the healing properties of locally foraged plants and age-old know-how. There is also an impressive range of Ayurvedic treatments on offer, along with a specially designed Ayurvedic menu. This spa doesn’t pressure you into the more specialised treatments, so if you feel like a hot stone massage then why not indulge yourself.
There are two types of accommodation on Fregate, depending on how private you want your stay to be:
Private Pool Residence
There are 16 Private Pool Residences for the ultimate in comfort and privacy. Beautifully crafted, your residence nestles nicely into the coast line, naturally hidden from your neighbour by lush tropical gardens. With your own luxurious terrace, large private infinity pool and Jacuzzi, daybed and dining pavilion you have views of both the turquoise water and tropical forest.
Banyan Hill Estate
Magnificently located on a hilltop on a secluded peninsula overlooking the harbour, beaches and a large part of the island – the five-building complex combines a high level of luxury with a unique feel of privacy and unspoilt natural beauty. The Estate comes with your own personal chef; private butler and maid who are all dedicated to making sure your wishes are fulfilled.
Alternatively, for a truly magical stay, you can have the entire island to yourself. Put together your very own exclusive guest list and share the island’s beauty and delights with those closest to you.
Fregate Island’s Rock Spa is the ideal spot to both relax and revitalise the mind, body and soul. The spa’s experts offer treatments, massages and yoga instruction in a truly peaceful environment. With the philosophy that ‘fresh is best’, this is the place to perfect your self-awareness.
The line of Rock Spa products compliments the range of treatments and therapies – made in the Seychelles with ingredients grown on Fregate Island, the products offer the ultimate in relaxations, revitalisation, detoxification and inner strength.
There is a dedicated Ayurvedic menu to compliment your regime; alternatively the normal food is outstanding. The Plantation House restaurant’s menu has Creole influence, and cuisine ranging from organic salads to the resort’s deliciously naughty melting chocolate signature dessert. The Pirates Bar beach hut is the ideal spot for after-dinner drinks gazing across at the uninterrupted ocean, or staring up at the stars that somehow shine brighter on Fregate.

Fregate is only a 15 minute flight from Mahe Island or a 1.5 hour boat trip – weather depending.
