Celebrity honeymoon favourite North Island in the Seychelles is to join Marriott’s The Luxury Collection group of properties later this year following a change in management.
North Island is famed for attracting honeymooners such as Prince William and Kate, as well as Hollywood A-lister George Clooney and his wife, Amal.
The 11-villa private island resort will become The Luxury Collection’s first property in the Indian Ocean archipelago in December 2019 when it will be rebranded as North Island, a Luxury Collection Resort.
Anthony Ingham, global brand leader for The Luxury Collection, said: “The Seychelles is a true Luxury Collection destination, and one that we have been keen to offer to global explorers for quite some time.
“The Luxury Collection is thrilled to announce the joining of North Island later this year – one of the most exclusive and exotic locations in the Indian Ocean.”
The day-to-day management of North Island is being taken over by members-only club Asmallworld and the resort becomes the first property in the group’s ASW Hotel Collection.
Jan Luescher, chief executive of Asmallworld, added: “We are proud to launch our ASW Hotel Collection and collaborate with Marriott International on such an iconic property. We are looking forward to expanding our collection over time.”
