Cousine Island

In the heart of the idyllic Indian Ocean archipelago that forms the Seychelles rests a private island that nurtures its extraordinary setting. It’s one of the few oceanic islands of granitic rock in the world where invasive species have been removed to allow the ecosystem to thrive. When new owners bought 62-acre Cousine Island in 1992, they committed to its well-being, resulting in a true conservation success story. The island had been exploited for its natural resources, but with the aid of conservationists, they slowly returned it to its origins. The efforts have been particularly evident in the bird population: thousands of nesting seabirds now make the island their home, and sooty terns are thriving after a 30-year absence.

Whether booking one of the five villas, all with handcrafted furniture and sweeping views of sand and sea, or renting the entire island, guests have a front-row seat to some of the planet’s most unique biodiversity. The 6,700-square-foot Presidential Villa, with two king-size master bedrooms, two ensuite bathrooms with Jacuzzis and open showers, chef’s kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining for 12 adults, and private infinity pool, is ideal for small families or a group of friends. Four intimate 2,200-square-foot Luxury Villas, with master bedroom, ensuite bathroom with Jacuzzi, open-plan dining/lounge area for two, and private infinity pool, create the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway. The island’s original beach house has been transformed into the Ligne St. Barth Spa, and a French colonial open-air pavilion serves as the island’s social hub.

A Cousine Island stay includes all meals and selected beverages, as well as a vast array of activities ranging from snorkeling and kayaking to guided nature walks and creole cooking classes. Exclusive-use bookings include all villas, facilities, and the island’s attentive team. Located five miles off the west coast of Praslin and 25 miles northeast of Mahé Island, this serene escape is accessible via helicopter, boat, or hovercraft.
