The island is home to a selection of 16 secluded luxury villas, each carefully positioned to balance maximum privacy with uncompromised views. The tranquil retreats are shrouded in lush greenery and swaying palm fronds; expansive sun decks accommodate comfortable daybeds and private jacuzzies, while dazzling infinity pools blend seamlessly into the azure sea beyond. Banyan Hill Estate is the island’s most remote residence, standing alone on its very own private peninsula. Your personal chef, private beach parties and round the island boat races make this the ultimate venue for entertaining – the ideal group retreat or family getaway.
Exceptional chefs utilise the island’s bountiful produce, with 80 percent of food being grown just metres from the kitchen. Zesty herbs and rich spices combine with this fertile land’s fresh and nourishing spoils to create culinary delights with explosions of flavour.

For a fulfilling experience, assist the conservation team in their admirable work and join them on the hunt for newly laid birds’ eggs or freshly hatched turtles. Catch sight of whales and dolphins peaking above the waves, or dive right into the magical underwater world of thriving coral and opulent marine life.
