As you sweep into North Island aboard your private helicopter transfer, gaze down at the picture perfect landscape with its lush tropical and mountainous interior fringed by breathtaking powder sand beaches. After landing you are whisked away for a rejuvenating complimentary 30 minute foot massage and you begin to realise you have come to a very special place indeed.
Eco-sensitivity and conservation are at the heart of the North Island philosophy, promoting a “Noah’s Ark” vision by which tortoises and certain bird species are gradually re-introduced to the Island, while allowing a select number of guests access to this rare slice of paradise through 11 harmoniously designed thatched villas. Raised over a metre from the ground and offering an authentic home-from-home ambience, these exquisite accommodations are individually handcrafted to celebrate nature. 10 villas benefit from 450 square metres of space, while the 750 square metre Villa North Island is ideally perched to enjoy spectacular sunrises. All feature fabulous marble baths, personal plunge pools and incredible sea-facing locations.
A stunning scenic pool and piazza overlooking the beach provide the focal point to the resort, while wider activities include in-villa spa treatments, mountain biking, island buggies, gym and watersports. Families are welcome and there is a well-designed personalised children’s programme to keep young minds entertained.
