There are only 11 handcrafted guest villas on the entire island, each constructed to create a sensorial experience in surroundings of understated elegance. All the structures at North Island Lodge have been individually handcrafted to give it a unique atmosphere and distinct flavour of the Seychelles. Each Villa measures 450 square metres (4,890 square feet) giving guests enough room to spread out and enjoy a unique, private, island-style experience to the full. Each Villa has two bedrooms, a main bedroom and a second bedroom. Whilst the Villa is primarily occupied by one or two guests, they may have a requirement to use the second bedroom for children or friends and this is available at an additional cost. Alternatively, the second bedroom can be converted into a study for guests staying in the master bedroom. Each villa is completely self-contained and is raised over a metre off the ground to capture the cooling island breezes. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms have overhead "punkah punkah" fans. The fully retracting sliding doors allow for uninterrupted views onto the lawns and the turquoise seas in front of each Villa. There is satellite television, a DVD/CD system and Internet access and all villas have 2 x land lines, one in the study and one in the main bedroom. The kitchen leads off the lounge/dining area. A private plunge pool (all villa pools have pool nets) and sala are the finishing touches to this private sanctuary.
Villas 1 - 9 are nestled discreetly in the tree-line, facing onto Anse d'est Beach. Villas 10 and 11 (Villa Royale and Villa North Island respectively) have been designed differently to accommodate the incline along the extreme northern side of the Anse d'est Beach and are secretly tucked away in the takamaka forest. The beach views from these Villas are truly spectacular from every angle and it is this, together with the unique manipulation of the design, that separates these two remarkable Villas from the rest.
A lounge, dining room and library, scenically located health spa and gym, world-class dive centre, and a 45 metre long rim-flow swimming pool are all built into a granitic outcrop. A sunset bar and restaurant are tucked away on the western beach of the island.
