Remote, romantic and super luxurious, this tiny private island just four degrees south of the equator is where Robinson Crusoe would live in his dreams.
A place of outstanding natural beauty with lush tropical vegetation, some of the oldest tortoises on the planet and seven white sandy beaches (including one just made for two) it is the epitome of getting away from it all. Accommodation is in 17 beautifully designed villas, each with its own private garden, pool and sheltered gazebo. Should you wish to leave this secret haven, guided nature walks are available, the cliff top Rock Spa offers magical treatments and there are a host of water sports to choose from.
Along with North Island, Fregate offers the very best luxury stay possible in the whole of the Indian Ocean. All of the villas have their own private gardens and pools, and there is even a beach which can be reserved privately for just two guests. Access is by helicopter, or for those trying to limit the already high cost, by boat.
Frégate Island Private offers plenty of places to enjoy a personalised meal. As well as relaxing in their restaurants and bars, you can dine all over the island. Be it in their Treehouse high up in one of the island’s oldest and largest banyan trees, at the Yacht Club; where you dine with the surroundings of the plantation, or choose a sunset cruise. You can even get a gaggle of your friends and family together to have a private BBQ on the beach, or enjoy at cocktail at sunset at Mont Signal - the highest point of Frégate Island Private.
