Outstanding natural beauty, peaceful setting, tropical interiors and abundant nature fringed by seven dream beaches: that is Frégate Private Island. Here’s why the preservation, protection and nature of the island has been fundamental. All the villas feature a large terrace with a private pool, Jacuzzi and a dinning pavilion with a private butler. The island’s own plantation and hydroponics guarantees fresh fruits and vegetables daily. The Rock Spa is a natural haven of serenity, where only pure, natural products are prepared from over 130 islands-grown ingredients.

Retreat Projects

Flora & Fauna

The preservation, protection and nurture of its unique flora and fauna are fundamental. Frégate’s ecological program incorporated rehabilitation of surface terrain and flora after 200 years of intensive coconut plantation. This integrated approach produced astounding results, including rescuing the world’s seventh rarest bird from extinction, the Seychelles Magpei Robin.

Community

Frégate Private Island focuses on one major community project each year. In 2007 Frégate invested £ 6,500 on new school kits for every first grade pupil in the Seychelles, a total of 1400 children. In 2008 Frégate paid US$ 5,000 for a local child to have sight-saving surgery in Kenya. Frégate also delivers a weekly donation of organic, island-grown fresh produce to the President’s Village Orphanage in Mahé.

Energy saving

With over 800,000 trees, Frégate currently absorbs roughly 4.2 million tons of CO2 each year. To reduce reliance on fossil fuels. one prototype tractor has been introduced which is fueled with diesel and frying oil mixture. The Staff quarters have solar-assisted hot water systems, and in 2008, the first fully solar powered “buggy fleet” was introduced, saving approximately 41,677 tons per year in CO2 emissions.
