Fregate Island Private, Frégate
Description: Fregate Island PrivateFrégate Island's pure shores encircle a unique destination: Frégate Island Private, a collection of 16 luxury villas, each one crafted to provide guests with the highest degree of privacy and comfort, located on a remote tropical island in the Seychelles in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
Frégate Island Private is the only resort on one of the most unspoiled places on earth. Once the island attracted pirates but now it lures the discerning and privileged with its soothing climate, tropical forests, and hidden coves of dazzling white sand. But what really sets the property apart is its commitment to the endemic wildlife that surrounds it. Designed to coexist within a fragile ecosystem that shelters some of the world's most endangered species, Frégate Island Private offers the utmost in luxury, tempered with caring responsibility.
Frégate is a twenty minute flight east from Mahé. It lies 4 degrees south of the equator, and far, far away from the clatter of modern life: approximately 1,000 miles south of India, 1,000 miles east of Africa, and 1,000 miles north-east of Madagascar.
The island is small, which makes it ideal for exploring on foot. It covers a mere 740 acres (1.15 square miles, or 3 square kilometres). The highest point is Mount Signal, which reaches a peak of 125 metres (410 feet). The year round temperature is 24-27° Celsius (75-86° Fahren- heit), and because the Seychelles lies outside of the cyclone belt severe weather is highly unlikely.
In keeping with the resort's commitment to providing its guests with the finest quality while at the same time coexisting successfully with the islands fragile wildlife, the chefs create gourmet meals using produce grown hydroponically in their gardens. This ensures a steady supply of tomatoes, eggplant, squash, cucumbers, peppers and other vegetables. A small plantation yields home-grown pineapples, oranges, breadfruit, bananas, and a wide variety of herbs and spices. Naturally, there's fresh fish in abundance.
There are 2 main restaurants, one in Frégate House and one in Plantation House, or you can enjoy your meals in the privacy of your villa. The open-air Pirates Bar serves light lunches and snacks.
Description des chambres: Fregate Island Private16 (2,000-square-foot) villas. Built from traditional materials such as native mahogany and African teak in a simple post-and-lintel style, the villas are topped off with dense thatched roofs. 2 nestle in their own private tropical gardens, and these are particularly good choices for families vacationing with young children.
Each villa was situated to make it feel like a part of the surrounding landscape, and to ensure maximum privacy and seclusion for the guests. Sliding glass walls and French doors that can be opened to the elements help to further blur the line that separates inside from outside.
Despite their traditional appearance and supremely laid-back ambiance, the villas come well-equipped with DVD machines and CD players.
