Cousine Island is remarkable. If you are looking for a luxurious place to relax, eat, commune with giant tortoises, and get spa treatments you will NEVER find a better spot. You will be amazed at the level of privacy and service you receive here. The villas are gorgeous, the setting is breathtaking....but what really sets this place apart is the staff. I've NEVER received better, warmer, or more impressive service. Chef Guy is brilliant (and accommodating no matter what your tastebuds call out); Michelle, Mike, James, Becky, and the rest of the staff will do EVERYTHING to make this the best vacation you'll ever experience. Whether you want to take advantage of excursions, diving/snorkeling adventures, or hikes....or just (as we did) lie around like rocks, they will make your choices memorable. Cousine Island is unique and not the easiest destination to find, but I can't recommend it highly enough for a vacation you will NEVER forget.

Room Tip: The villas are gorgeous (there are only four) and the Presidential Villa is the size of a house-great for two couples or family.

Cousine Island immersed as a jewel in the Indian Ocean home to rare and endangered species. Personally speaking it's difficult to describe the emotion of sharing time with un touched nature as the island offers.

Villas of luxury to enhance every emotion. Not to mention the five star treatment and the chef who individually selects your menu

Congratulations to Mr.Keeley and all who have made this possible for people to enjoy this immaculate paradise

We had the most wonderful holiday on Cousine Island .Accommodation was 7 star .The staff could not do enough for you. The chief cooked excellent meals and you could have any meal you wanted.The Island is like living in paradise .We enjoyed the variety of bird life my camera would not stop taking pictures.Also the island is full of giant tortoises that will take food from your hand.The beach is white sand and blue water and it is your own private beach .If you are a fishing type the boat is there for you to use. We used the spa and the treatment was out of this world .A excellent massage and service.The weather was perfect during our stay and sea water was warm.A helicopter takes you from the mainland to the island and you get a view of some of the other islands.If you want to enjoy paradise on earth this is it.

Stayed: June 2017, travelled with friends

4 nights in paradise...it was the crown of our stay in the Seychelles and set a new top level of holiday which probably cannot be beaten for a very very long time. What a retreat and a perfectly secluded island. It was us, pristine white coral sand and the warm Indian Ocean waiting for us to be explored. And before and after our endeavor s in the warm sea with could splurge the nothing-can-be-added luxury in our great villa. Always in perfect order. So if there should be a day with not so nice weather one still gets plenty of space to relax. The warmth of the weather and sea could only by the care provided by the stuff: whatever your preferred treat is: watersports, nature, spa or exquisite dining…it´s there. The only sad point: we had to leave again.

Room Tip: Get the presidential villa, no regrets. From Praslin take the mini-Mahé boat.

An absolutely incredible and beautiful place, very special piece of secluded paradise, which was the perfect way for my new husband and I to start married life. If you need to get away from everything, want to soak up the sunshine, but not be surrounded by crowds then this is the perfect place to come. The villa's are beautifully equipped and tastefully decorated. Each one has a large Jacuzzi bath which was a highlight for us, your own private pool, and private beach. It also came equipped with a fully stacked mini bar, and nespress coffee machine to my husbands delight. The bedroom had a superking four poster bed, which was lovely and romantic. Each night the room was filled with candles and sweet smelling oil. We had private dinner on the beach for the two of us, with no one around except the lovely staff, who only came around to bring us our food or pour our champagne. An incredible place to watch the sunset, with an amazing 180 deg view of the Indian Ocean. The staff were all very attentive to our needs, but left us to enjoy our honeymoon too so were respective of our privacy. The chef was absolutely amazing, I miss his food so much now that I am home and so does my husband. He will cook up whatever you ask him to, and tried very hard to source me some lobster, which is now sadly been overfished in the Seychelles. The island is focused on conservation so be sure to see some turtles beach and lay eggs or some nests hatch while you are here, and take a walk around the island with the conservation officers to learn more about their determination to conserve and help flourish the beautiful animal and plant life indigenous to Cousine. You will never regret coming to this piece of paradise, you will take away treasured memories, a beautiful tan, incredible photos, a renewed sense of self and once your holiday ends you will definitely not want to leave. (Photos to follow soon).

Room Tip: The Presidential suite is the most incredible place to stay
