Fregate Island Lodge

...

... is located 50km west of the intenational airport on Mahe in the Seychelles.

This beautiful little island, just 1.5km in diameter, is comprised of granite hills, indigenous hardwood forests and coconut plantations, surrounded by white-sand beaches and fringed by coral reefs. There is also a resident population of giant tortoises. The island was a popular pirate haunt during the latter part of the 17th century and stories persist of yet to be discovered treasure.

Around 1950 the island was turned over to the production of vegetables, fruit, coffee, vanilla and poultry for the markets on Mahe, but in recent years all traces of this agriculture have been removed and the island returned to its natural state, although the island does remain slightly scarred by a substantial harbour.

The central areas of the lodge are set into a hillside above the ocean and include conventionally comfortable lounge, bar and dining areas, leading out to a lovely swimming pool. There is also a watersports centre down at the marina and a huge spa and gym facility higher up the hill.

Guest accommodation is in sixteen lavish suites, also built into the granite slopes and with uninterrupted views of the ocean, with huge private pools and very comfortable bedrooms.

Activities include diving, snorkelling, turtle nesting, walks and remote beach picnics.
