Located just 4 degrees south of the equator and featuring world-class beaches, lush tropical vegetation, and luxurious accommodations, the eco-friendly Fregate Island Private is the hottest resort in the Seychelles.
Lodgings at the hotel consist of sixteen traditional mahogany and thatched-roof villas and the very elegant Banyon Hill Estate. The hotel offers a choice between the private pool residence for up to two adults and two children, the private pool twin residence for up to four adults and two children, or the private pool spa residence for two adults with a private spa facility. Each bedroom and living room is connected by a vestibule with a dining facility. The rooms also feature one large and one small bathroom, each with their own private outdoor shower. But the ultimate luxury comes from the private terrace with its large infinity pool and jacuzzi, a plush daybed, and a dining pavilion.
The Banyan Hills Estate is located on a hilltop on a secluded peninsula overlooking the harbor, white sandy beaches, and the island proper. Guests can live like royalty with their own personal chef, private butler, and personal maid. The estate features three separate sleeping villas for a total of six adults and up to three children. It also comes with a full-kitchen, separate T.V. lounge, and private study. The private infinity pool at the estate even has its own gazebo.
The hotel is set within an archipelago of 115 islands that were discovered 300 years ago. It was once home to pirates at war with the British East India Company. Then the French claimed it as a colony only to have the British refute this claim and the island changed hands several times until its independence in 1976. Now it’s a luxury resort with seven pristine beaches, a protected inland harbor within a lagoon, and the site of some serious conservation efforts.
