As a private tropical island, Fregate can’t be beaten for location. The resort has beautiful views of the sea and is surrounded by seven private beaches, including “The World’s Best Beach” according to a ranking by The Times. The island can be easily navigated with the personal buggies that are provided to guests.
Guests can choose from 16 Private Pool Residences, each of which has a luxurious terrace, large private infinity pool and Jacuzzi, daybed and dining pavilion overlooking the sea. Residences measure between 400 and 700sqm in size. Alternatively, there is also the Banyan Hill Estate, consisting 3 separate villas for up to 6 people, complete with a personal chef, private butler and personal maid. The island can also be hired in its entirety, and is ideal for large groups looking for an unforgettable experience.
Much of the produce served is grown on the island itself or caught directly from the surrounding ocean. While the island does host its own restaurants and bars, dining options are not restricted to particular venues and guests are able to dine wherever they like, whether it be on a beach or in the island’s own tree-house. Sunset Cruise and Sashimi Picnic options are also available, allowing guest to enjoy an unforgettable meal at sea.
The island hosts The Rock Spa on Fregate Island, offering fitness training in an air-conditioned gym, yoga sessions and relaxation treatments for the mind, body and soul. Nature plays an important role on the island, and the island's flora and fauna is diverse, the most impressive of this being the giant tortoises that roam the island. There is also much to see in the waters around the island, and scuba diving by day or night is available with PADI certified diving courses offered at all levels. Those wishing to stay above water can also take to the waves with kayaks, surfboards, windsurfing boards, water skis, banana towing and powerboat trips, which are available for guests to enjoy.
