Small in geographical size, but infinitely rich in natural habitat, Cousine Island spans 25 hectares (62 acres) in size, 1.4km in length and 800m in width.

The custodians of the island are wholeheartedly dedicated to the preservation of the Seychelles environment. The vegetation consists of 95% endemic plants, creating a nurturing habitat for more than seven species of land birds, nine species of breeding sea birds, as well as a variety of migratory birds that consider Cousine Island home during six months of the year.

The remaining 5% of vegetation is made up of indigenous fruit trees and vegetable plants that are used as a sustainable food source for the island’s guests and residents. Fruit bats feed on the Fichus trees and the island’s undergrowth is home to a variety of insects, lizards and geckos.


Cousine Island’s boutique hotel has been carefully planned to grant our guests secluded privacy, while keeping our human footprint as delicate as possible. To this end, our villas and resort facilities have been kept both exclusive and unobtrusive, perfectly nestled in the island’s verdant and exotic surroundings.


Our timeless accommodation features one homely Presidential Villa and four elegantly designed French Colonial Luxury Villas, as well as the Pavilion, a magnificently appointed dining and social area.
