Luxurious Fregate Island, Seychelles
The original luxury eco-hideaway, Frégate Island Private is located in the Seychelles, in the midst of the Indian Ocean. Exemplary preservation, protection and nurturing of the island’s unique natural environment, and the utmost in exclusivity for guests, are the central principles at Frégate: abundant fresh produce from the island’s plantations form the basis of the culinary and spa concepts, while a resident ecologist coordinates ongoing work towards the seamless integration of resort operations into ecological programme.
Always elevating the guest experience to new heights, the luxury Seychelles island, Frégate has created its very own ‘Bird’s Nest’, a secluded romantic lair in the treetops. Inspired by the island’s 140 species of rare tropical birds, the Bird’s Nest is an idyllic hideaway for couples to revel in their private tropical island odyssey.
Just off Grande Anse, one of luxury Seychelle island’s seven dream beaches, a wooden staircase winds up around the trunk of a coconut tree, leading up to a hand-crafted, three square metre private platform discreetly camouflaged in palm leaves. From its four metre-high vantage point, the Bird’s Nest commands breathtaking views across the sparkling turquoise Indian Ocean to the west, scenes of the glorious beach and jungle to the south; and a panorama of the island’s dense endemic foliage towards the east and north. With the butler just a phone call away, guests ensconced in the Bird’s Nest can enjoy mouth-watering sundowner cocktails as they watch the sun melt into the horizon; a succulent barbecue dinner in the best Frégate Island Private tradition, prepared and served by their private butler; or simply being left to enjoy each other’s company.
