Located amongst the inner granitic islands of Seychelles, North Island is owned by the North Island Company Limited and is anticipated to join The Luxury Collection’s portfolio of world-renowned hotels and resorts later this year. So read yesterday's press release that announced that The Luxury Collection®, part of Marriott International, Inc., planned its debut property proposition in the Seychelles with the signing of North Island - one of the world’s most luxurious private island resorts.
North Island boasts pristine white sand beaches that surround a tropical interior of coconut palms and indigenous takamaka trees, cradled between three granite outcrops overlooking the azure ocean.
Featuring 11 private villas with panoramic oceanfront views and a supreme sense of exclusivity, the 4,890-square-foot villas will provide guests with plenty of room to fully unwind and enjoy the intimate, island style experience in a luxurious setting.
