Denis Island Travel Guide
Postcard from . . . Denis Island, the Seychelles
The island lodge delivers the desert island fantasy of talcum-soft beaches, freshwater pool and thatched bar and restaurant.
They used to call Denis “the island at the end of the world” but that was in the days when it took the inter-island schooner more than 24 hours to sail from Mahé, the Seychelles’ main island. Now, a 30-minute flight gets you to this lozenge of sand and thick forest surrounded by the ever-changing blue shades of the Indian Ocean.

A private paradise in the Seychelles
A haven for turtles and rare sea birds – and for deep-pocketed lovers of the tropics – Denis Island is a picture postcard paradise in the Seychelles.
You don’t actually get to have the place entirely to yourself, it just feels that way. Just half an hour by plane from Mahe, the main island of the Seychelles archipelago, Denis Island measures only two kilometres in length and one and a half wide, and tucked away in this area are 25 cottages for guests. The thatched roofs are barely visible among the lush foliage, and they’re all just a stone’s throw from the clear waters of the Indian Ocean.

Fall in love with Seychelles’ natural beauty
The backdrop to honeymoons for A-list couples everywhere, Seychelles’ fertile flora and fauna make it one of the world’s most romantic destinations, as Tabitha Barda discovers.
So, there’s no lock on the bathroom then?” “No lock? There’s no wall,” laughed the hotel rep as he showed me to my beachfront spa cottage, explaining the ‘barefoot luxury’ experience of Denis Island Resort, a tiny – just 1.3km by 1.75km – coralline crescent situated a 30-minute flight away from the Seychellois main island of Mahé.
A former coconut plantation, this privately owned slice of paradise has now been developed for ecotourism, and guests are expected to embrace the wireless and lockless serenity of a place where there are no keys in your room, no internet, no TV, no phone signal and the cuisine consists almost exclusively of produce reared on the island’s own organic farm.
