Luxury Villa Private Island

Covering around three square kilometers, the paradise of the Island is part of the Seychelles Archipelago.

This virtually tourism-untouched island, with its fine sandy beaches, tropical interior jungle and fruit and vegetable plantations, is the habitat of rare flora and fauna including giant turtles and rare birds.

A very nice place to refresh oneself and recuperateā€¦the beautiful forests, the water, the coconuts, the fish, and birdsā€¦ The seafarer from the East India Company was fascinated with what he saw when his ship dropped anchor at the shores of the Island in the year 1609. Covering an enormous area of 390,000 square kilometers, these paradise-like islands are located in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

A thousand miles away from the rest of the world: this is how a British governor once described the Seychelles in the 19th century. And Seychelles Island 101, tucked away on the east side of the island group, still gives its guests the feeling that they are worlds away from mass tourism and the daily stress and hectic life at home.

The approximately three square kilometer island offers you seven stunning beaches, crystal clear waters, sunshine, and flora and fauna unparalleled in the world, as well as sixteen exclusive luxurious and comfortable villas.

Privacy in spectacular nature - this is what the 16 villas of the Island offer you. Integrated harmoniously into the natural landscape of the island, the residences are surrounded by unspoiled vegetation and give you the feeling of total seclusion. 14 villas are located directly above cliffs with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Let yourself be pampered and enjoy the unsurpassed feeling of pure luxury in the midst of unspoiled nature.

The Seychelles islands are under the influence of monsoons. Between November and April a Northwest Passat wind can lead to stormy waters on the northwest and west coasts. Average daily temperatures vary between 29-21 degrees Celsius with humidity exceeding 85%. Between May and October a Southeast Passat exerts a cooling influence. Maximum daily temperatures then reach 26-28 degrees Celsius with lower humidity. During this period the sea on the Southeast and East coasts can be somewhat troubled. Depending on the time of the monsoon, the sea on specific beaches may be rough and thus partially hinder or even prevent bathing and water sports.

Tropical diseases are not prevalent on the Seychelles (status September 2000). Vaccinations are consequently not stipulated. Basic first aid equipment is available on the Island. Adequately equipped hospitals are available at Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. A helicopter service can be organized in emergencies.

Leisure Pursuits
Seychelles Island 101's seven heavenly beaches are among the most beautiful in the world. Ideal conditions prevail most of the year for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and numerous other water sports.

The water sport program is well developed and far-reaching. The Island has its own marina with an entire fleet of sailing craft, from dinghy to yacht, catamaran to motorboat and deep sea fishing vessels. Scuba-diving excursions, under the guidance of experienced PADI dive masters, to the thrilling underwater world of the island's coral reefs belong to one of the most memorable experiences in the world.

A freshwater swimming pool built into a natural cliff is located at the center of the villa complex.

Agreeable shady rambling routes criss-cross the island. It can be explored either along the coast or through the rainforest. Holidaymakers can study exotic fauna and flora during walks, on request with the accompaniment of the island's resident ecologist.

Special Features
Seychelles Island 101 is one of the only two islands in the world where the giant tortoise runs wild and they can be sighted all over the island. Other wildlife in the area includes rare birds such as the melodious magpie robin, which is found nowhere else in the world. A nearby rock jutting out of the sea is a nesting place for more than 100,000 seabirds where they are protected by the surrounding coral reef.

Some villas which are built closer to each other, for example our two paradise garden villas. They were built on protected meadows especially for the needs of families with children. The distance can be between 20 and 50 meters. However as the villas are to offer absolute privacy they are surrounded by large coconut palm trees and little rock formations.

In maximum, two children can be accommodated with 2 adults in one villa. In case there are more than 4 persons booking we recommend they book two villas. For families the garden villas would be most suitable as they are further from the cliffs and less dangerous. They are further away from the beach. Mostly (if big families take two villas) they have a nanny with them. The children or the additional adults can sleep on the sofa beds or on extra beds which can be positioned in both the living and the sleeping bungalow. Normally the extra beds remain in the villa for the day, they are made and prepared for the evening by the housekeeping, but on request they can be removed.

The air-conditioned villas are equipped with two bathrooms, in and outdoor shower, satellite TV, in-room VCR, mini stereo with CD player, tea and coffee making facility and a minibar refrigerator for drinks.
