Denis Private Island

Denis Private Island is an exclusive island retreat and is located 95 kilometres north of the main island of Mahé. It is surrounded by powder-soft white sandy beaches and the turquoise waters of Denis’ sheltered lagoon provides for unrivalled swimming, and guests can snorkel amongst turtles and exotic marine life off the house reef just metres from the shore. With the ocean depths close by, the island justly deserves its reputation for excellent diving and as a game fisherman’s paradise.

On-going conservation projects to restore part of the island to its pre- discovery state have seen over 50 hectares of woodland rehabilitated, giant tortoises meander along and no-where else will you come across such a combination of some of the world’s most endangered endemic species.

Denis Private Island boasts 25 elegant cottages which have been decorated in a natural theme. The cottages are spread amidst casuarinas and coconut trees on either side of the main house, a stone’s throw away from the beach.

Alongside are pathways and tracks that meander through the coconut groves and into the forested interior of the island. Each cottage has its own private beach front and sea-facing verandahand outdoor courtyard.
