A helicopter flight brings you to this 25-acre granite island to the west of Praslin. Ringed by inviting turquoise seas, privately-owned Cousine Island has become a world-renowned nature reserve (itís home to such rare and endemic bird species as the Magpie Robin) and has been a major conservation success.
Only four couples are allowed on the island at one time - ensuring privacy, isolation and a feeling of ownership. The Pavillion with views features a bar, pool, library, lounge and airy dining area offering delicious Creole and international cuisine. The island is also available for exclusive use.
Cousine Island offers only 4 luxury villas nestled amongst the lush vegetation, each with views of Cousine's sugar-white beach and the neighboring islands Cousin, Aride and Praslin, incorporating all the comforts required for a luxurious stay and relaxing stay.
This island paradise allows guests to enjoy the sort of peace and tranquility only experienced before man walked the earth, but with every modern comfort. Restoration of woodland, reintroduction of rare native species and ecological monitoring are seen as crucial activities which go hand in hand with ensuring excellent levels of service offered to guests.
The food is essentially local. There are a variety of various meals offered and it is served in healthy portions. As the sun begins to rise and the bird population begins their day, you are greeted with the smell of freshly brewed coffee. A breakfast of your choice is served. A Continental or English breakfast is offered with a wonderful choice of fresh fruit. Lunch is served at your convenience and at whatever time is suitable to you. You have the choice from our menu or if you desire something lighter, just mention to the chef or manager and if available we will accommodate your requests. Dinner is an event to look forward to. Dining in the main pavilion, you are treated to a four course menu or, if dining in your villa in total privacy is what you wish, this can be arranged if you notify the manager at lunch. At your request dinner on the beach is a romantic option.
