Each cottage is separated from one another by gardens and hedges.  The 25 cottages on Denis Private Island are well appointed with generously proportioned, open living spaces, offering unpretentious comfort with the talcum-soft beaches just steps away.

Also, enjoy the luxury of open-air bathrooms and al-fresco showers of private garden courtyards.

What To Do 

“The island is yours – Do as you will, without disturbing others” is the owner’s motto.

Whether sunbathing on the beach, bathing in the lagoon, enjoying the pool or simply relaxing on your terrace, one pleasure folds into another.

Wander through the forest echoing with calls of land and seabirds and discover the island’s flora. Join the resident experts on a bird feeding or nature tour, or for a presentation on the island’s history, wildlife or conservation projects in the Library. Visit the Old Village craft workshops, farm and the giant tortoise colony.

And should you wish to venture further afield, there are day excursions to other islands.


Whether it is breakfast in bed or romantic candle-lit dinner on the beach – the night sky your only roof, an intimate table for two on the deck of your own villa, or dinner in the terrace dining room, the refined cuisine of Denis Private Island is nothing short of tantalizing.

Our Chef prepares daily the most succulent dishes, creative and extensive buffets with live cooking stations fresh from the island’s estate and fished from the surrounding seas for breakfast and lunch. And in the evenings, Creole speciality night, barbecues on the beach, sushi and sashimi prepared from the day’s catch. Or elegantly- presented five-course table d’hôte dinners in the dining room.

In our Wine Cellar, another journey begins. Our inventory of fine New and Old World wines is carefully selected and yours to choose from. The perfect setting for a degustation with friends or for an intimate dinner for two.

Before and after dinner, staying open well into the night, the well-stocked bar provides the meeting point for a tête-à-tête or to get to know your fellow guests.

Ocean Sports

The diversity of experiences is not limited to land. The Denis Private Island lagoon is indeed a great fascination–triggerfish, clownfish, parrotfish, pirouetting rays, gliding turtles all in radiant livery compete in splendour in the dance of the coral reef – a morning spent snorkelling will unveil myriad life-forms and stunning backdrops.

Plunge into the heart of the ocean for incomparable diving. Sightings of turtles, white tip and reef sharks, rays, sailfish, tuna are common; dolphins and whales also frequent. Whale sharks and manta rays often sighted from September to November. Snorkelling and dive equipment are available.

Just a few miles north of the island, the sea floor drops rapidly into the oceanic abyss spawning a frantic cascade of life from algae through to the big game fish. Daily charts are available with the experienced crews and fishing equipment.

Opt for a taste of adventure on one of the fishing expeditions. Experience the scream of a reel and the sight of your catch burst clear of the water; the tug of a deep-water giant on a hand line; the challenge of fly-fishing on the flats.
