A privately owned coral island (by the Mason family), Denis Island is the perfect location for those seeking true escapism, total relaxation and tranquility. The forested interior is home to giant tortoises, land and seabirds and endangered endemic species, all protected by a conservation scheme.
The spacious, luxurious cottages, all sea facing, are scattered alongside the beach areas on either side of the main pavilion. The highly acclaimed restaurant serves an excellent menu choice or Creole buffet. Considerable amounts of fresh produce are used from the island's own farm and gardens. The natural lagoons provide sheltered swimming, snorkelling and water sports all year round. The small PADI dive centre provides a range of dive excursions and courses for beginners and advanced divers.
Situated 95km north of Mahé Island. The transfer by air takes about 30 minutes.
Denis Private Island is available on a Full Board Basis.
From casual, all-day eateries to formal, fine dining (and private dining), guests can look forward to a wide selection of refined dishes and refreshing drinks.
