Room for All
Find a winter home among an array of accommodations to suit all from a choice of 71 villas, suites, and expansive residences perched at the palm-fringed edge of this private island.
One-bedroom villas with beach, ocean and sunset views are the ideal retreat for two, or two with a little one, while larger villas and suites featuring two to seven bedrooms host families of any size in perfect comfort.
The Private Retreats collection comprised of beautiful residence villas complete with modern kitchens are the ideal home away from home for larger families and groups of friends.
In-villa chefs and personal attendants take care of the details, leaving more time for special moments in each other’s company. Every accommodation has a private pool and garden for gathering between adventures.
Lounge by the pool, cooling in the sea breeze as the sounds of lapping waves and singing birds fill the air.
Island of Activity
Winter dreams become lifetime memories with endless unforgettable experiences for guests of every age. Start the day with sunrise yoga in a garden haven. Swim in the warm Indian Ocean or play all day on nine miles (14 kilometres) of soft sand - there’s always a stretch of beach to claim as one’s own patch of paradise.
Cycle together through swaying coconut palms, pausing to watch birds and discover the secrets of the tropical environment.
See faces light up during enchanting encounters with the island’s oldest residents, giant Aldabra tortoises. Learn to cook Creole dishes for family meals back home. Wind up the days stargazing on the terrace, sharing the beauty of the universe with the ones you love.
Surrounding the island, an exhilarating marine world waits to be explored through diving, snorkelling, or on a sunset cruise. Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and surfing turn the ocean into a playground while petanque, tennis, football, and trail running keep bodies active and friendly rivalries in play.
While little ones play, pampering the body is easy at The Circle of Connection Spa, where expert therapists perform massages, treatments, and rituals to refresh, rejuvenate, and invigorate.
An Island Playground for Kids of Every Age
Learn the basics of Creole language or get to grips with traditional dancing, get crafty and creative at fun family workshops, or release competitive spirits at the Teen Olympics. Quality time together is important but freedom for kids and teens to find their own fun while grown-ups enjoy well earned time to themselves is important too.
Kids For All Seasons provides a curated program of activities and events to suit younger guests while teenagers can enjoy sports, take a surfing lesson, ride the BMX track and take part in scavenger hunts around the island.
Recharging isn’t just about slowing down, it’s also about nourishing bodies and providing a feast for the eyes and tastebuds. Freshly caught seafood, premium grilled meats, sumptuous sushi, and specialities of the Mediterranean are served alongside Creole classics in the island’s three distinctive shoreline dining venues.
Beach picnics make for charming family feasts on the sand while private moonlit dining conjures island romance. Captivating themed dining nights at Claudine keep taste buds tingling and appetites satisfied throughout every stay.
