In the Northern reaches of the Seychelles lies Denis Island, its distinctive crescent shape making it easily distinguishable as your light aircraft flight floats in the skies above this impeccably maintained corner of the Indian ocean.
The island itself is a 375-acre haven for wildlife, including rehabilitated bird colonies, rare endemic birds, turtles and more, and Denis Island Lodge is the only accommodation on the paradisiacal island. Find yourself riding a bicycle through the island’s farmlands, spotting endemic birds and ancient tortoises. Or make use of the lodge’s kayaks to explore the waters of the surrounding ocean and lagoon and, as the waters around Denis Island are protected, fish and coral reefs thrive here. The lodge also offers catch and release fishing and has an onsite dive centre for those who wish to submerge themselves in Denis’ underwater wilderness.
Mealtimes showcase the island’s Creole heritage and food is, as much as possible, sourced from the Denis Island farm including milk, cheese, pork, fowl and fish as well as a variety of fruits and vegetables.
After a day out exploring the island and its lush tropical waters, and tucking into superb, locally sourced food you can kick back and relax in style in your private cottage which is just a short walk from the beach. The cottages are bright, timeless and romantic making them ideal for couples, but young children are welcome and families will love Denis Island’s Beach Villa with its spacious rooms and private plunge pool.
