Due North
Seychellois Cockaigne

Every now and then we come across a place – a villa in Tuscany, a sun-drenched private island or a Parisian boutique hotel – and immediately feel at home. A place where they’ll be dragging you out the door at the end of your stay, and where you add the staff to your facebook. One so beautiful, so intelligently put together, you’ll prick your finger and offer a blood oath to the general manager, vowing your return to this little slice of felicity (happiness, not the chick).

North Island, in the Seychelles, is a private dog bone-shaped paradise an hour from Mahe. Not only are there three pristine beaches so white you’ll get off the boat looking like Steve Wonder, but the water is the colour of mint mouthwash, the 11 villas are Robinson Crusoe-esque penthouses, and the all-inclusive tariff means you can spend your time there sans wallet, sans shoes and sans sobriety. Go exploring for Disco Harry, one of the island’s 50 giant tortoises, watch green turtles lay their eggs on Honeymoon Beach, and sip Mai Tais at the hidden West Beach Bar, between bouts of tackling sail fish off coral cove and reef diving with black tip sharks.

And all it takes is a quick chopper ride and a drop of blood.
