An exclusive lodge nestled in the cove of a cape on its own sandy beach, protected by the coral reef. 3 villas, 8 rooms and suites in total for total privacy. Here, time stands still and nature reigns. A Garden of Eden, a lush tropical forest, pristine beaches and clear water, Silhouette Island offers you activities: hikes in the National Park, meetings with the giant tortoise, playing Robinson Crusoe on desert beaches, and diving to discover incredible species! In creole-style, with verandas open on the sea front, the Lodge offers intimate luxury for holidays. If you wish total privacy you can rent the whole villa or the entire lodge for an incentive and family holiday. The dining room offers delicious dishes facing the Ocean. The Chef will be delighted to prepare a daily menu, introducing you to local products, gastronomic technics, depending on the season. The lounge will enable you to relax, share moments around the library, and enjoy a game or a cocktail on the terrace watching at the nature show, or enjoy a nature trip with a guide or not, a fishing trip, or a relaxing cruise aboard the Belle Tortue boat.

I recently returned from my trip to Seychelles and this tiny hotel was the stand out of the trip. I was upgraded to the one bedroom villa and would highly recommend this room. The villa is clean and spacious. It has a great wrap around porch on the ground floor and a small balcony on the first floor. Both floors have great views of the ocean. It is a literal 10 foot walk from the villa to the sea. The outstanding part of the stay at this hotel has to be the food. Dinner is a 4 course gourmet meal and was amazing each and every night I was there. The beach is lovely and easy to swim in. You won’t regret a stay here!

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days and had the greatest time! Thank you again to the General Managers Cora and Benjamin for the wonderful days. The island itself is fascinating and mostly wild. You have to discover it for yourself by going on walks, hikes or boat rides. The Lodge has it‘s own boat and Benjamin can guide you on the more strenuous hikes himself. They will also provide backpacks or waterproof bags if you come without the proper equipment, like us. The food was amazing. The highlights were Benjamin‘s dinners every evening. He said he likes to experiment and we can confirm that his cooking is inventive, tasty and definitely not boring. But even the sandwiches which they prepared for us to take on the hikes were very good. We also loved the coconut pancakes for breakfast! The room was clean and big enough for our luggage. There was also quite a lot of space in the bathroom for cosmetics. The tap water is drinkable and they offer a refillable glass bottle for the room, which you can cool in the small fridge. The Lodge is on a small bay so the water is calm and safe. The beach is small but quite beautiful. There are trees for shadow, sun loungers and hammocks which you can use. There was a swarm of young mackerels very close to shore and depending on the time of day and the tide we could see herons, small sharks, bigger fish and moray eels hunting them, which was fascinating to watch. You can also do some snorkeling along the rocks (masks and fins are provided) and at low tide you can walk out very far (ocean shoes are also provided by the Lodge) and discover the ocean life this way. We would encourage everyone who visits Silhouette to choose La Belle Tortue for their stay. Benjamin and Cora are super nice, the food is exceptional and this was the only place during our stay where we felt that Covid had no effect on the quality of the food or the service.

Not only is this lodge exclusive in the sense that although located on an island which has sadly given in to having a large and totally inappropriate property namely Hilton, it has maintained it's exclusivity with just a few rooms on an ideal little beach and run by a totally dedicated french couple with three delightful home schooled children. The manager/chef Benjamin is not only a truly inventive creator of outstanding quality preparation, beautifully presented but also a truly warm host full of attention a rare trait for a professionnel chef. His deserts are imaginative making the most use of local products and decorated to perfection. Cora is wife is especially attentive to any special requests that one may have and fulfils her role as hostess to complement a perfect team. We stayed 5 nights and each one was magical.

You would be mad not to include a stay at this beautiful little lodge right on the beach and within walking distance of the jetty. It's so far removed from the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts - a real home from home with a touch of luxury. It is managed by a delightful French couple, Chef Benjamin & his wife, Cora who look after you and serve you probably the best food you will find on these islands - French cuisine mainly fish cooked to perfection in a variety of ways but with a local twist. A great wine list with even a few 1me Cru bargains. Nice breakfast and light lunches/picnics also available. Also excellent internet.
