If you’ve ever lusted after the idea of a stay on a desert island, or you’re at boiling point with tech, stress, and everyday strife, then this is the respite holiday you need in your schedule.

More than an idyllic beach resort, Denis Island is, as the name suggests, like granting you a desert island to yourself (well, you and some other equally weary and paradise-seeking guests). This is a truly magical place, managing to be luxurious and sophisticated, although more rustic and close to nature in its styling and ambience.

  • Just 25 free-standing cottages and villas (be warned, no wifi or phone reception)
  • Northerly and private position in the Seychelles
  • Stunning food, sourcing meat from its organic farm

ACCOMMODATION

Set among the island’s natural vegetation, just 25 free-standing cottages and villas make up the accommodation on the island, which gives you a sense of just how private and special this is. There’s a real sense of simplicity about the décor within each of the villas, nodding towards the influence of nature, and yet providing a sense of privileged luxury at the same time.

Beach Cottage

  • 3
  • 968ft2
  • Sea View

Calmly decorated in pale colours, these cottages are set directly on the beachfront so you can be reclining on the pristine sands just moments from your door. Comprising a sitting area and a furnished sea-facing veranda, plus an open air bathroom, your stay will be peppered with the delicious sea air and soothing sounds of the ocean lapping the shore. Simply bliss!

A more luxury option, with king-size bed and a lounge area, the villa is beautifully decorated in woods and pale hues. It’s simple, but utterly stylish at the same time. You’ll have an extensive outdoor living space, private courtyard, dining pavilion and plunge pool.

Location

  • The key point about its location is that you’ll feel a million miles from anywhere. Denis Island is toward the most northerly point of the Seychelles (it’s actually the second most northerly island), and it’s some 52 miles from Mahé. The very remote nature means it truly is a holiday setting for doing little other than relaxing and recharging. Transfer to the resort is by airplane, organised in advance.

DINING

Some say this is the venue for the very best food in the Seychelles. Perhaps that’s because Denis has its own small organic farm, from which meat is used within the hotel’s main restaurant. Promoting healthy cuisine is top of the island’s agenda so expect hearty meals your taste buds, and body, will thank you for!

LEISURE

As you’ll probably have gathered by the insight so far, this is not a holiday brimming with watersports, pamper possibilities or every leisure pursuits known to man. The idea is digital detox and utter calm, although you can indulge in some diving, swimming, sport fishing, or perhaps a few spa treatments in your room. However, the greatest accolade to this island is that its waters boast an official protected status so its brimming with tropical fish and sea turtles. Grab your snorkel and get exploring! Oh, and did we mention there’s a turtle sanctuary?

Wash your stresses away

While there is no dedicated spa facility on Denis Island, the award-winning resort does offer treatments which are all carried out in the privacy of your villa or cottage. You’re well advised to book these in advance, as there are only a limited number of staff providing such a personal and attentive service.

Products used are coconut-oil based, and all made in the Seychelles, so you know you’re getting something utterly natural and indulgent at the same time.

Flippers at the ready

It may not have a great deal of leisure additions but Denis Island does have its very own PADI dive centre. This is a great opportunity for you to make the most of the beautiful waters around Denis, which have been granted official protected status by the government of the Seychelles.

A number of dive sites are available for you to visit, plus, the team at Denis will also carry out certification courses for beginners if you should wish to take up the opportunity.

Get close to nature with a ranger trip

If you’re ditching your mobile phone and e-mail obsession during this paradise-esque holiday, why not go a step further, and get right back to nature with one of Denis’ special ranger trips.

You can get up with the lark and be accompanied on a trip to see the tracks of the sea turtles or look for magpie robins in the forest. The hotel also offers bicycles if you wish to do a bit more of an independent version of a nature investigation for yourself.
