The Luxury Collection, part of American multinational diversified hospitality company, Marriott International, has announced its planned debut in Seychelles with the signing of ‘North Island’, one of the world’s most luxurious private island resorts.
North Island is located approximately 30 kilometers north-east of Mahe Island, the main and largest island in the Seychelles, a region off the coast of East Africa.
Located amongst Seychelles’ inner islands, the property is owned by the North Island Company Limited and is anticipated to join The Luxury Collection’s portfolio of world-renowned hotels and resorts later this year.
Managed by ‘ASmallWorld’ (ASW), the leading members-only club dedicated to international travel and luxury, North Island, a Luxury Collection Resort, Seychelles, will be the organization’s first property in their highly anticipated ASW Hotel Collection.
North Island features 11 private 4,890-square-foot villas.
“The Seychelles is a true Luxury Collection destination, and one that we have been keen to offer to global explorers for quite some time,” said Global Brand Leader for The Luxury Collection, Anthony Ingham.
“Home to some of the world’s most beautiful islands, with endless white sand beaches and coral reefs, lush mountain rainforests and rare animals, The Seychelles archipelago is an untouched paradise with over 115 islands to discover. The Luxury Collection is thrilled to announce the joining of North Island later this year – one of the most exclusive and exotic locations in the Indian Ocean,” he added.
Marriott International said in a statement that North Island will offer “immersive experiences and opportunities for guests to explore the captivating magic of the island.”
“With a variety of adventurous activities including scuba diving, sea kayaking, boating, fishing, yoga, snorkeling and more, guests can connect with the indigenous offerings while making a minimal impact on the environment, which is the main philosophy of the island and resort,” the Group added.
“We are proud to launch our ASW Hotel Collection and collaborate with Marriott International on such an iconic property. We are looking forward to expanding our collection over time,” Jan Luescher, CEO of ASmallWorld said.
