Cousine Island Seychelles is more than a resort; it’s also a private nature reserve situated just a few miles off the west coast of Praslin Island.
At just 25 hectares, the granitic island is a conservationists’ project that succeeded in reclaiming the landscape from intensive farming into a setting of endemic trees, shrubs and flowers. Cousine Island is now home to increasing numbers of native Seychellois birds, tortoises and turtles, with some species now recovering from the brink of extinction.
Cousine has four elegant and spacious villas, all built in the French Colonial style. Each villa has two patios, a lush private garden and stunning white sand beach and ocean views. A visit to Cousine Island Seychelles Resort feels – and is – exclusive, with a maximum guest occupancy of 10 people. You will have no problem finding a beach to call your own!
The main Pavilion building is the centre for dining, and the unique open plan kitchen ensourages interaction between diners and the chef. Meals can be prepared to suit any dietary requirements. Meals and snacks are included with your stay.
The Beach House Wellness Retreat has a beautiful spa with indoor and outdoor treatment areas and uses exclusive Ligne St Barth spa products. There is also a well-equipped multi-gym in case your time on the beach and nature trails needs an energetic boost.
Get involved in conservation at Cousine Island Seychelles by helping with tree planting, turtle monitoring or ringing and feeding Magpie Robins.

Or, relax in the knowledge that your stay is the primary source of funding for conservation efforts on this beautiful Seychelles island.
