We spent 7 nights at La Belle Tortue and were incredibly sad to leave. Emmanuel and Mariannick were amazing hosts, the location is fantastic, the food was unbelievable, and our room was one of the nicest I've ever stayed in. Silhouette Island is incredibly beautiful and has tons to do if you like nature - jungles, beaches, awesome diving, hiking,... More

I would like to thank Mariannick and Emmanuel who hosted us at La Belle Tortue. This Lodge really felt like a home, which was great as it was during Christmas time! The food is exquisite, Emmanuel is a great chef, willing to adapt to everyone's tastes (which was quite a challenge with my family and I). One day they took... More

We spent five nights at La Belle Tortue in September on our honeymoon. From the moment we were met at the jetty by Cedric and his golf buggy to the moment we left this beautiful island, we had an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable time. We stayed in the two story villa, which was very spacious and had an extremely large... More

We have spent our honeymoon at the end of August, 2014 for two weeks on the Seychelles. After the one-week stay in the Coco de Mer on Praslin our trip led us to Silhouette Island. On the island there is, actually, only one hotel: the Hilton Seychelles Labriz – a very extensive (and expensive) arrangement with more than 100 bungalows.... More

We stayed for one week at La Belle Tortue, during our two weeks stay in Seychelles during which we also visited Praslin and La Digue. From beginning to end, our week at La Belle Tortue on Silhouette Island was amazing. The island of Silhouette is very wild. There is only one small village and most of the island is jungle.... More

La Belle Tortue is exquisite. We've stayed there for 4 nights in a room with terrace. The room was pretty and comfortable. All the rooms/villas in La Belle Tortue give sea view, which is a great advantage! The bed was giant and happened to be the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. We were lucky to be the only...
