Denis Island, Seychelles

Our Opinion
A castaway island, totally surrounded by stunning soft white beaches and turquoise waters, offering excellent accommodation and the very best in friendly hospitality.

Stretched along the beach on north-western tip of the island, each nestling in its lush surrounds and separated from each other by gardens and hedges, our 25 Cottages are well appointed with generously proportioned, open living spaces, offering unpretentious comfort with the talcum-soft beaches just steps away.

The luxury of open-air bathrooms and al-fresco showers of private garden courtyards.

Denis Island is a coralline island and is situated ninety-five kilometres north of Mahe at three degrees South of the equator. The Island is at the edge of the Seychelles Bank which plunges 2000 metres down into the deep abyss of the Indian ocean.

The Island is named after Denis de Torbriand, who landed there in 1773 from he French vessel L’Etoile to find it covered in a profusion of sea birds, giant tortoise, turtle and “sea cows” now extinct. Somewhere on the island is buried a bottle containing the Act of possession, claiming the island in the name of the King of France. This historical treasure still awaits discovery.

Guarded in large part by coral reefs, this has created a natural lagoon, which washes an almost continuous startlingly white sandy beach. Denis also boats a spectacular lighthouse built in 1908 and the only ecumenical chapel in the entire Seychelles Archipelago.
