This private island is full of giant millipedes warms which enter your villa, your underwear, clothes and food! Outrageously expensive : £3000+ a night for a villa and you get to experience this phobia!
I and my husband booked our stay for 6 nights via Knightsbridge Circle Luxury concierge company based in London.
After 3 nights, upon waking up with these millipedes next to my bed and clothes, I had enough and demanded to leave the island immediately.
We moved to the newly opened Six Senses resort which was free from any of these creatures and had great service.
So we basically had to pay again for our holiday.
I have been several times to Seychelles to different islands. These millipedes are native to Fregate Island only.
On top of that, Fregate private island whose management charges outrageous amounts to their guests, does not have any activities! They do not even have a proper boat to begin with. We booked a private day trip to the other islands and they wanted to put us in a transport ferry boat, can you imagine?
To give some credit, their beaches are beautiful but warning: you can’t swim in any because of strong currents and waves and also to get to them there are like 200 steep stairs down. My husband slipped and fell on his back. Very dangerous.
Last but not least, there were like 300 types of birds nesting and pooping everywhere.
To sum up: this island is not adequate for tourism. They need to make a lot of changes and lower their unreasonable prices.
The first rule of marketing is “location, location, location” and this place has inherited the Garden of Eden! If you’re tired of the magazine air-brushed Maldives, or if French Polynesia is just too far, if you like a touch of luxury with your adventure, then this is the place for you.
-African jungle fauna that will overwhelm you... 5000+ tortoises (some of them 200 yr old), hundreds of thousand birds, large fruit bats, etc. etc. This place seems like a step-back to the Jurassic era
-amazing villas with more-than-amazing views
-some of the world’s most beautiful beaches where you will be the ONLY one on the beach!
-privacy!!! You’ll basically never see other guests or be bothered at all
-delicious and healthy food... freshly caught fish, 80% of fruits and vegetables (so fresh and delicious!) served are grown on the island, etc. you can eat well AND loose weight here
-great mix of relax and activity... they organize and propose things for you to do every day to make sure that you get to know the island, etc. you don’t have to call or organize anything... they think ahead and make it happen
-personalized service... they know your name, learn your preferences and habits, and tailor the service to match
-none really but the hotel could use an “update” in some cases (e.g., the gym)... there’s a little wear-and-tear that you might not expect at these prices but the management says they’re aware and will make future investments
We’d love to thank Edson and Angela (our assigned assistants), the management team including Wayne and Arta, all of the waitstaff in the restaurant (David, Ades, etc.) and housekeeping (Mimirose!). Kudos also to Richard who is fighting the “good fight” in terms of ecology and conservation.
We will definitely be back!
