As early as the 16th century, pirates took advantage of Frégate Island’s tropical paradise when they came here seeking a safe place to rest after their raids. Today, a nature retreat, with its Rock Spa, is located in this pristine region of the Seychelles. The lush, idyllic nature here is a perfect place for stressed souls. Situated on a plateau, surrounded by the island’s green landscape and offering marvelous views, the spa provides treatments that are as exotic as they are relaxing. The spa’s staff uses fruit, flowers, and spices that you can even pick yourself before they are applied. Like everywhere on the island, the importance of freshness can be felt in the spa. The special treatments depend on nature’s seasonal bounty. On Frégate Island, environmental protection and guests’ wishes are in perfect harmony. For example, the island offers its guests the chance to adopt a baby Aldabra giant tortoise. During the breeding season, the endangered Hawksbill turtles also come to the island to lay their eggs beneath the blindingly white sand on the beach, trusting that their hatchlings will be safe here.
