Denis Private Island

In the remote northern territory, this exclusive eco-retreat is a place to truly get away from it all, with no mobile phone signal, no in-room internet and no cable television – giving you a rare chance for a digital detox and to live in the moment enjoying activities including snorkelling in a sea turtle sanctuary, sport-fishing at the edge of a continental ocean drop-off, and birdwatching. Accommodation is in just 23 rooms fashioned at the island’s own carpentry, with open-air bathrooms and garden courtyards.  There’s a ‘spa in nature’ - treatments carried out at your cottage in the open air, at the Beachfront Spa Cottage or under the casuarina trees.

The delightful spa overlooks the bay with its crystal-clear waters, while offerings at the five one-off dining venues range from poolside bites to addictively fiery Creole cuisine. 

STORY Seychelles

We love this boutique resort for its natural reef that you can reach by swimming 50m directly from the beach and for its setting on the only  beach on Mahé that’s swimmable all year round. But there’s also a fantastic Balinese spa including two couples’ suites and a Vichy hydrotherapy room and hosting signature treatments fusing the best of Western and Eastern techniques. Suites and villas blend local heritage with the contemporary; some have their own pools.
