I stayed at Frigate this April with a dear friend. It really did feel like a very special opportunity. This quiet reserve with its perfect, private beaches is a restful paradise. Their conservation program is really something and a big part of the draw. If you stay, I wouldn't miss the chance to take a walk with their resident naturalist...

Fregate Island is heaven on earth. It's the perfect blend of living spaces and untouched nature.

We flew in by helicopter, looking over the clearest blue Indian Ocean, spotting two turtles probably on their way to Fregate Island Private, because later we saw the hatchlings coming out of their nests and dashing down to the sea.
