Venue Setting

Beautifully located for a wide range of activities, the Fregate House is where you find the reception desk and boutique, our library, main restaurant, a collection of old rums and whiskies, a wine-tasting cellar in the basement and, just outside, the charming Pirates Bar beach hut. Walking down to the main beach from Fregate House, you pass by the two common pools and our beach bar. As one of the first ports of call on Fregate Island, it is the perfect starting point for a relaxing and inspiring stay. As you enter the veranda of the former plantation owner's residence, the charm of the colonial architecture immediately transports you back in time. The Plantation House provides an exquisite dining ambiance, with a chef specialized in fine Créole dishes. Also located in the Plantation House our Museum, a fascinating treasure chest of artefacts truly brings the history of the Seychelles to life. Furnished with beautiful displays of marine flora and fauna, findings from the waters around Fregate and authentic documents, it is a must-see on any agenda for a proper feel of this unique island and region. The Yacht Club is right by our private lagoon. Offering peace and quiet after an exciting day on water or as an intimate location, the Yacht Club is a cozy place to relax for an afternoon-tea or a BBQ in the evening. It also hosts a pool table. Our island chapel is one of the island’s oldest buildings. Decorated in authentic Créole style, you can celebrate weddings or other services here – for truly unforgettable moments in your life. We pride ourselves on the beauty and seclusion of our beaches, some of which gently slope into deeper waters without a fringe reef. Each of our seven beaches – one of which offers absolute privacy – has its own unique character and atmosphere. Whether you wish to start the day with a fruit salad breakfast, enjoy the sunset with a cocktail or just go for a swim, our beaches will make your paradise retreat perfect.
