Denis Private Island

Enveloped in tropical vegetation, surrounded by stunning soft white beaches and turquoise waters and offering excellent accommodation, Denis, a privately owned coral island, is ideal for discerning travellers.

Sustainability is at the heart of this stunning, privately owned coral island nestled in the Indian Ocean. Staying here, you can be assured that you are not only experiencing the most exotic of paradise settings, but you are helping to keep it that way for future visitors. 

The island’s estate uses organic methods to meet the needs of the island’s guests and inhabitants- rearing poultry for meat and eggs, cattle for milk, vegetables, fruits and herbs grown in soil fertilized by sea grass; and fish caught in our fertile waters. The natural oils extracted from the island’s coconut trees are used in the massage and wellness centre and the traditional furniture is fashioned at the island’s workshop from the timber of fallen trees in the island’s forests
