The luxurious Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is located on the third largest island of the Seychelles, only 30 min away from Mahé. Not only the virgin rainforest with its intact nature and a huge biodiversity impresses the visitor but also the Mount Dauban with a height of 780 metres.
The paradisiac resort counting 111 villas is surrounded by the virgin soil of the Marine National Park, one of the protective area with the highest diversity of species in the Indian Ocean. Being located at a breathtaking white sand beach, it will make your dreams come true.
After having married on La Digue we spent our honeymoon in the Hilton Hotel. We had chosen the Deluxe Beachfront Pool Villa (185 qm) with its impressing and fantastic private pool measuring 3 x 6 metres. The villa is located right next to an idyllic beach where a separated section of it is available for private use. The sense of Robinson Crusoe life style that you get there is gorgeous! This is a place for people who really enjoy absolute privacy!
A dreamlike paradise – only a few footsteps away from the beach – exactly what you are looking for as a romance seeking couple!
As we got to know it is better not to dispense with a villa with pool and beach nearby. Because of a water damage in our first night (yes, unbelievable but shall be forgiven!) we had to spend the first night in one of the garden mansions. They are also beautifully made up and furbished but do not have any protection means against mosquitos, like a net around the bed, and they have an outdoor-shower embedded in concrete, that severely disturb the outer appearance and style. In addition to this the garden mansions are set up very tightly next to each other. For honeymoon we do absolutely recommend to book a Beachfront Pool Villa.
The luxury bath with its huge bath tub and its double shower fulfil all desires you can have regarding a bathroom.
The breakfast in the villa is also very worthy to be recommended. We chose a champagne-breakfast and got two huge tablets with the most delicious goodies you can imagine. That can be enjoyed in a perfectly sound atmosphere of your own pavilion of the villa. Of course it requires extra expenses but it is absolutely worthworthy its costs.
The Hilton Hotel offers several hiking and climbing tours. With a small group of people we went to the other side of the island and explored further celestial beaches. Equipped with enough water, these journeys are an interesting and successful alternation on your holiday agenda. Bikes can also be borrowed for longer distances.
Of course, the Indian Ocean also invites you for snorkelling, diving and sailing. Therefore it is always worthy to have an underwater-camera with you! These underwater-images were shot with an one-way disposable camera. With these cameras you can create really cool retro-style-photographs!
On the Hilton resort area there are seven restaurants and bars. You make a choice for a restaurant during the day and book seats via phonecall. Only in the main restaurant you can have a meal from the buffet without reservation.
The “Grann Kaz” offers a traditional Seychelles’ Feeling and a romantic atmosphere with its delicious Creole cuisine in a huge range of perfect arrangements and combinations. Also the japanese restaurant of the Hilton resort – the “Sakura“ – has a great ambience and outstanding native food.
The Silhouette Spa is definitely one of the musts on your agenda! It is directly constructed into the rocks and its style goes perfectly along with the surrounding nature. The fantastic ambience in the rainforest could not be any better for your recreation and the wonderful section of the beach in front of the spa really invites you for a romantic walk! The masseurs are outstandingly friendly and the professional massages can be enjoyed very well as a couple.
The Hilton Silhouette Spa really offers a lot! On the day of return we did unfortunately not have the opportunity for a Late Check-Out so that we spend the wating time at the pool of the Spa.
The staff of the Hilton Hotel was in fact a bit more reserved and not as personal as in the romantic Hotel Le Domaine de L`Orangeraie, but generally the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa could definitely compete with Le Domaine. The paradisiac landscape and the private pool and the own private section of the beach will always be a delightful memory to us!
