Frégate is a private island of outstanding natural beauty; a uniquely peaceful setting of verdant, tropical interiors and abundant nature fringed by seven dream beaches, each a brilliant sweep of powdery white sand sentinelled by giant, iconic granite boulders.

Frégate Island Private has just 16 villas and one Presidential Villa, accommodating only a selected number of guests at any one time and thereby ensuring the island remains exclusively the realm of its guests - no day visitors are allowed. Positioned to guarantee ultimate privacy, each villa is built of native mahogany and clad in rich African Chamfuta Teak wood, blending harmoniously into its natural surroundings. The typical villa plan features square spaces rotated 45 degrees, maximising views of the ocean through two facades. The tropical feel of the buildings is intentionally casual, in keeping with the surroundings; in addition to an indulgent private infinity pool, each villa features a large terrace - with day bed and Jacuzzi - which flows from the interior as part of an extended living area.

Interior architecture is simple and elegant. The post and lintel structure is mirrored inside, framing picture-perfect views of the island; African Chamfuta Teak skirting boards edge cream Botticino marble floors, while vaulted roofs and Merbou timber framework faithfully reflect a diverse colonial architectural heritage. Frégate Island Private introduced a comprehensive butler concept; a private butler is assigned to each villa to assure personalised and individual services throughout the guest’s stay, providing anything, anytime, anywhere on the island.

In keeping with its committed approach to ecological issues, Fregate Island Private continues to strengthen the connection between restaurant menus and island-grown produce. Influenced by the abundance and diversity of ingredients cultivated on Frégate Island, the executive chef takes guests to new gastronomic heights with innovative demonstrations of the extraordinary flavours that nature can deliver.
