Home away from home

Spanning less than thirty hectares, Cousine Island is no mere tropical getaway to be found in a holidaymaker’s magazine; it is a personalised and intimate adventure, a secluded moment of reflection and the ultimate expression of romance and beauty, naturally formed to captivate the heart and re-engage the soul.

The island’s tropical climate makes it an ideal summer destination during any season, with temperatures averaging between 25ºC and 35ºC all year-round, and heavenly sea surface-temperatures ranging between 28ºC and 31ºC. This warm temperament, coupled with the conservation efforts of the island’s resort, have also made it home to a large variety of rarely experienced birds, animals and plants; while providing a welcoming luxury getaway for the discerning wanderlust traveler.
