As island paradises go, Fregate Island makes idyllic island dreams a reality for luxury travelers. Find a collection of 16 Private Pool Residences scattered along the shoreline, each strategically placed along the natural edge of the coast to remain unseen by neighbors. This brilliant design ensures that your days are spent lazing on the daybed of your private terrace, splashing in the private infinity swimming pool, and sharing indulgent meals in the al fresco dining pavilion in utmost privacy.

Differing floorplans in each residence can be arranged to accommodate larger groups or families traveling together, hosting up to four adults and two children at a time. The Spa Residence includes the benefit of its own exclusive spa facility for liberal pampering by the island spa staff.

At the heart of Fregate Island is Fregate House, the resort’s main building and gathering area. The pursuits here include dining, shopping, and lounging on the main beach. Head below the sand for wine tasting in the underground wine cellar, stroll through the groves of exotic fruits and organic vegetables utilized by the island’s chefs, or elevate your experience by dining in the “tree house” atop a grand banyan tree. The Rock Spa is bordered by granite formations and is the destination for personal wellness, offering spa treatment rooms and an air-conditioned gym.

The utter opulence of Fregate Island is balanced by its soul for conservation. Guests share the island haven with over 2,000 free-roaming Giant Aldabra Tortoises, hundreds of Hawksbill turtle nests, and more than 100 species of birds including the Seychelles Magpie Robin, which was once on the brink of extinction. A walk around the island with the resident conservationists will illustrate the importance of the ongoing flora and fauna preservation efforts.
