Discover boutique hotels in North Island, Seychelles
An East India Company ship stumbled across the uninhabited North Island of the Seychellois archipelago when it drifted off course in 1609… A few centuries later, North Island now ranks as one of the world’s most exclusive locations, home to just one hotel where the buildings are crafted from natural materials and there’s not a single plastic straw in sight.
When to go
Expect a fair amount of rain between November and March. The best times to go are October and April, when the ocean’s at its most tranquil.
