FREGATE ISLAND PRIVATE SEYSHELLES
With seven entirely private beaches around the island and just 16 Villas, yours can often be the sole footprints in the sand, flip the ‘Beach Occupied’ sign to ensure absolute privacy. Whenever you arrive there is always a cooler box with iced drinks, towels spread on loungers, a fresh water...
The sapphire seaview through our open Reception is framed to dramatic effect, people always pause to catch their breath and take in the beauty of the vista. From here you can reach two resort pools, a beach bar, boutique and our library. Fregate House is also home to our restaurant which is characterised by a plantation style casual elegance. At breakfast you are joined by scarlet red fodies dancing on the white linen, at night moon streaks silver light over the ocean below.
Yacht Club & Sheltered Harbor
Sail and sports boats
We have a picturesque private harbour, four sports boats, a dive club and a flotilla of hobie cats. Snorkelling at nearby Little Fregate is like being dropped into an aquarium, there is excellent deep sea fishing, Fregate Island is the nearest to the Drop Off, you might sight marlin and easily catch something large. Anything you catch our chef will be delighted to transform into sashimi if you wish. The Yacht Club is quiet and relaxed with views over one of the calmest bays, it is one more location to choose for private dining.
The power of nature
The Rock Spa is a shaded sanctuary, a peaceful teak house on a granite hilltop, with views across the rain forest canopy to the Indian Ocean. Every guest receives a complimentary Yoga session and Welcome Ritual, helping all attune to the island’s rhythm. Treatments are created bespoke for The Rock Spa and use many of the botanicals and fruits on the island, our Garden of Eden healing book found in every villa, details many of the recipes. Guests can collect their own fruit and ingredients in the gardens, to create a delicious treatment for natural beauty. An infinity pool hangs over lush greenery; float and look up at birds soaring through the trees, all is a soothing precursor to one of the natural treatments delivered with gentle professionalism. There is an air-conditioned gym by the Rock Spa and a personal trainer if required.
Plantation House & Museum
For events with a colonial charm
As you enter the veranda of the former plantation owner's residence, the charm of the colonial architecture transports you back in time. It is a venue full of character for special events. A museum has interesting displays of marine flora and fauna and records the island’s history which began as a pirate’s hideaway in the 17th Century. In fact it is believed the notorious buccaneer, La Buse, hid his treasure on the island and it is yet to be found.
