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 Island features 16 grand and beautifully crafted residences all with private pools, and the exclusive Banyan Hill Estate, located on a secluded peninsula. Each accommodation is secluded and built to provide the utmost privacy for all guests.
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.
Fregate is known for its conservation efforts and is home to 2,200 free-roaming giant aldabra tortoises, the island is full of wildlife and acts as a sanctuary for many species on the brink of extinction.
There are two types of accommodation on Fregate, depending on how private you want your stay to be:
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.
