October 2015 – Wilderness Collection is delighted to announce that North Island, Seychelles has been included in the Town & Country Travel 100 as one of the Best Romantic Beach Resorts in the world. This ‘Ultimate Check-In Checklist’ was compiled for Town & Country magazine by members of Wendy Perrin’s exclusive travel club, the WOW List.

“We are delighted to be included in this prestigious list”, commented North Island General Manager, Nicholas Solomon. “To be recognised by such an exclusive group of well-travelled experts with a taste for the finer things in life is a real honour. Our inclusion in the world’s Best Romantic Beach Resorts category reflects our ongoing commitment to go above and beyond the generosity of our offering for each and every guest, and highlights our position as one of the world’s foremost honeymoon destinations.”

North Island’s latest architectural refurbishment, just completed, also ensures that the Island continues to set the standard for luxury private island hideaways around the globe and remains the perfect backdrop to a romantic beach holiday. Expansive beaches of pristine white sand give guests the impression of having their own private island. This feeling is reinforced by North Island’s signature anticipatory service – with guests’ wishes being acted upon almost before they have expressed them.

The generosity of the North Island guest offering has become legendary. One of the originators of the much-imitated “barefoot luxury” concept, North Island’s approach effortlessly combines smooth and rough design elements with a refreshingly casual approach which contrasts wonderfully with the sumptuous surroundings.

“Our stated mission on North is to spoil and surprise each guest through highly personalised experiences. This extends to our enhanced food offering, with each of the venues on the Island creating its own unique style and vibe – from the sophisticated “date night” elegance of the Piazza to the more relaxed cocktails, sunset and tapas feel at West Beach Bar”, added Solomon.

Freed from the mundane, guests can focus on what is truly important as they enjoy the sumptuous villas and natural beauty of the Island together, reconnecting whilst being inspired by the remoteness and serene beauty of North Island.
