Frégate Island features a luxurious five-star eco-lodge offering the optimum in comfort and amenities that has become a favorite hideaway for Hollywood stars, with deluxe villas right on the foreshore to ensure each has a million-dollar sea view.

 
Frégate Island is situated approximately 55km from Mahé and is the most distant of the granitic Seychelles Inner Island group.

Frégate Island was a popular pirate haunt during the latter part of the 17th century and stories persist of treasure hidden somewhere on its 280 hectares.

The Seychellois magnate Harry Savy purchased the island after World War II, transforming it into a highly profitable venture by growing vegetables, fruit, coffee, vanilla, cinammon and poultry for markets on Mahé. The island sustained a population of some 100 persons, busily engaged in Savy’s several lucrative enterprises.

Frégate Island's microcosm measuring some 2 square km is home to no less than fifty species of birds, among which is the rare Seychelles magpie robin, and also hosts the world’s only population of the giant tenebrionid beetle as well as numerous giant tortoises.

Meanwhile guests are encouraged to engage themselves in the island’s many conservation projects, run by ecologists charged with keeping the island naturally pristine.
