my map of... Seychelles review.
Denis Island Resort, Denis, Seychelles
Denis Island is a coral island of some 375 hectares and lays north of the main cluster of Seychelles Islands on the very edge of a coral reef just a few miles away from the Seychelles mid-ocean platform that dips down into a two kilometre deep abyss.
It forms part of the Seychelles outer islands and is a haven for sea turtles, birds, and giant tortoises.
Largely undisturbed for more than two centuries Denis Island possesses a diverse eco-system that has changed little since the first explorers made landfall on her pristine shores.
Despite having relatively recently opened her doors to the privileged few, Denis has changed remarkably little in all that time, her numerous treasures, both above and beneath the waves, still very much intact.
Travelling on a small Air Seychelles plane direct from Seychelles International Airport, Denis Island is a short 30 minute journey from Mahe, a flight that will bring you onto this island of unbelievable natural beauty and tranquility.
There are no roads on the island just a grass landing strip and a few tracks through the wooded interior - a true paradise holiday island.
This private island experience has just 25 elegant cottages, each nestling near the ocean shore amid lush tropical gardens - where comfort and a natural Creole flair go hand in hand to provide you with an unforgetable stay.
Denis Island is now a superb resort that offers an exceptional experience within a private nature reserve - one of only a few destinations on earth that truly delivers eco tourism.
The central L-shaped building located on the Island's western promontory houses the Denis Islands' administration block, extensive wine cellar and also its spacious bar and restaurant areas.
The bar is the natural place for a reunion after a fulfilling day, whether with friends or an intimate tête a tête over one of the island's delicious cocktails.
The restaurant, with an already enviable reputation for some of the finest cuisine in Seychelles, offers clients a sumptuous breakfast buffet of local fruits, freshly squeezed juices, farm eggs, fresh croissants and danish pastries.
Lunches present a choice of three buffets: Salad; a variety of hot dishes complemented by an open grill preparing fish or meat and, finally, a table of desserts.
Dinner features a table d'hôte 5 days a week with a delicious Creole Buffet served on Thursdays and Saturdays under the stars.
The resort enjoys the facility of a small, professional, on-site dive centre with PADI accreditation offering courses for novice and advanced divers alike and where both diving and snorkeling equipment is available.
The protected underwater world around Denis ranks as one of the finest areas for a diving holiday in Seychelles and features a number of dive sites allowing sightings of turtles, sharks, sting rays, sailfish, tuna and dolphins with whale sharks and manta rays often sighted from September to November.
Year round there are opportunities to observe at very close range the animal and bird life of the island the majority of which know little or no danger of human beings.
Fishing aficionados the world over are familiar with Denis Island's reputation as enjoying year-round fishing in an area of the Indian ocean that yields an abundance of fish.
Denis Island is a destination for only a chosen few.... a private island sanctuary where simplicity, comfort, pleasure and relaxation co-exist with nature in perfect harmony.
Management actively pursues an eco friendly
policy and guests are welcome to participate in the various projects.
