Denis Private Island
Turn off your phone and abandon your watch as you arrive on Denis Island. This enchanted Seychelles coral isle, set like a rare jewel in a sapphire sea, is yours to explore during your stay.
Enjoy a perfect tropical cocoon where you can experience the barefoot luxury of authentic, truly sustainable island living. The island is family owned and great care is taken to look after the ecology on the island. Organic methods are used to rear eggs, cattle for milk, vegetables, fruits and herbs grown in soil fertilised by sea grass.
You can’t help but be seduced by the understated elegance of private, beachfront cottages which share the island with abundant nature.
- Denis Island is reached by a flight from Mahe Airport which takes approximately 30 minutes via a light aircraft. Helicopter transfers can also be arranged.
- Transfers by boat are not permitted to ensure no rats accidently arrive on the island as they would negatively impact the island's ecology.
- There are no keys or televisions in the rooms and no mobile phone reception is available on the island.
- Children are welcome and nature activities can be arranged for their entertainment and enjoyment.
- Internet connection is available in the library but not elsewhere.
- Only natural insect repellents should be brought onto the island.
- Sink your teeth into sashimi, tempura and lots of other treats on Sushi Night; it’s a wonderful experience with amazing variety and stunning presentation.
- Freshen up in the al fresco showers and enjoy the open-air bathroom that gives you a newfound feeling of being closer to nature.
- Scuba diving and snorkelling fans will be blown away by the sealife - you may see everything from timid turtles to dazzling spotted eagle rays.

- Most of the furniture on the island is made from fallen timber at the island's workshop.

Forget generic hotel restaurants, the culinary experience on Denis is all about moments. If you want an intimate dinner for two on the deck of your own villa, or you’d like the night sky as your only roof, your wish is the hotel’s command.
The chef prepares extensive and creative buffets. Watch in delight as the island’s fresh ingredients and fish from the surrounding sea are used in the live cooking station. When it comes to the evenings your taste buds won’t get bored. There’s Creole speciality night which will give you the taste of the Seychelles you’ve always wanted, BBQ's on the beach and sushi or sashimi prepared with the catch that day. If none of that’s for you, there’s always the five-course d’hôte dinners in the dining room or around the pool deck.
The dining journey doesn’t end there either. Take your pick from New and Old World wines which have been carefully selected to go with whichever food option you choose.
Fishing, tennis, snorkelling, snooker, indoor board games, canoeing, nature walks, bird-feeding tours, guided island tours, diving, bicycles, sunset cruises.
The professional dive centre offers diving courses for everyone, from novices to advanced divers. Sightings of turtles, white tip and reef sharks, rays, sailfish, tuna are common. Seeing dolphins and whales also happens fairly frequently. But if you want to see whale sharks or manta rays then September to December is the best time to visit.
If you feel like you need that extra bit of pampering, as many of us do while away, then make an appointment with one of the island's therapists. They use a selection of therapies inspired by Seychellois, Indian and Swedish techniques, all of which wonderfully compliment Denis’ naturally holistic lifestyle.
In the privacy of your garden courtyard, there can be few more idyllic places to rejuvenate and reconnect with the transforming power of nature, particularly when the therapists are using island essential oils, fine sand from the pristine beaches and other natural products.
Although this is an exclusive destination, your children are more than welcome to enjoy it with you.
Your children can take part in non-motorised water sports and ocean-based activities which will ensure they can explore the wonders of the rich marine life around Denis. Through the PADI affiliated dive centre, families can participate in dive courses and with excursions available for beginners and advanced divers alike. Visits to the farm and estate can also be arranged for the kids.
Nature tours of the island offer guided information on the conservation projects and the sustainable programme on the island; this includes a fascinating visit of the farm and estate. In addition, friendly walks around the island will guarantee a surprise encounter! Interesting presentations of the island’s history and environmental talks are also conducted occasionally.
