Gift Ideas | A Romantic Stay at Fregate Island Private


Have you ever received an experience as a gift? In our opinion, it is one of the most memorable presents someone can offer. Andrew Harper occasionally receives "Private Sale" resort packages that are the epitome of grandeur and luxury, and this is exactly that. This details surrounding this stay can be tailored by our expert travel advisors to fit one's individual needs, including transportation and flight arrangements, trip extensions and more.

This specific package, three nights at Fregate Island in a private pool villa would be hard to top, ever. Even the most discerning gift recipient would be hard pressed not to be both flattered and elated. We envision this as a romantic holiday gift, an upcoming anniversary celebration or perhaps a surprise gift at the New Year.

Not only is Fregate Island pristine, it is also isolated (a 20 minute helicopter ride from Seychelles International Airport, already located in the middle of the African ocean) offering the luxury of VIP seclusion. The resort is located on a lush 740-acre private island complete with sixteen guest villas with separate thatched living and sleeping pavilions connected by furnished sundecks. Spacious baths provide soaking tubs and indoor/outdoor showers; also gazebos with daybeds and Jacuzzis. The island is a wildlife sanctuary, home to 2,000 free-roaming Giant Aldabra Tortoises, the location of hundreds of nests of the endangered Hawksbill Turtles, and home to hundreds of thousands of tropical birds including the endangered "Seychelles Magpie Robin" which the Island conservancy saved from extinction.

Imagine sitting on your private pool deck, gazing out over the beautiful waters surrounding the Seychelles. Or if you are feeling up to it, is a freshwater infinity pool, lap pool and clifftop spa.

The resort has a “dining everywhere” policy – guests can choose to have dinner wherever they want, whether it be their residence, one of the restaurants and bars, the beach or even a Treehouse high up in one of the islands oldest and largest banyan trees.

Each of Fregete Island’s seven beaches, offer the upmost privacy and are frequently voted some of the best in the world are at your disposal during your stay.
