Tout savoir sur l'expérience
Nestled at the heart of the exclusive island of Silhouette, the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa will delight the most frugal traveller. It is the only hotel situated on the private island, which is 15 minutes (by helicopter) from the archipelago’s main island, Mahé. Once a pirate’s lair, then a site for extensive copra plantations, today the island has been returned to its Eden-like state. Rare exotic birds soar above the palms, while giant tortoises are free to roam the plateau.
The 5-star’s wide range of accommodations will suit every visitor. Situated between the national park and the seaside coast lined with palm trees, the resort’s 111 well-appointed villas are composed of organic materials including driftwood, pink-speckled granite, and thatch. Each villa offers spacious luxury with every comfort in an intimate setting, whether they be within the lush tropical terrain or along the beachfront. The wide open gardens lead to granite studded beaches and the ocean, offering an elegant holiday experience in a natural environment.
Hiking trails crisscross Silhouette, allowing guests the chance to breathe the perfumes of incense trees, cinnamon bark and frangipani flowers – while also discovering the flora and fauna of the island with the hotel’s resident naturalist. Afterwards, while grown-ups are being pampered at the spa, the younger residents will want to hang out at the kids’ club.
While some are here to perfect the art of “doing nothing”, others may embark on sunset cruises around Silhouette, go fishing at moonrise, or explore the nearby village, La Passe, home to a little over one hundred inhabitants.
Seven restaurants offer a dizzying choice of sweet and savoury dishes, Creole specialties, Teppanyaki, sushi, wood-fire pizzas and delectable desserts. For an historical promenade, meander over to Grann Kaz, which serves local fare and is set in an old colonial home that once belonged to the original owners of the island, the Dauban family.
