“Small, Subtle and Just Right”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Have stayed here many times over the past 5 years (2008-2012), both before and following the acquisition by the Hilton Group. It is a wonderful, small, discrete and classy resort. Very helpful and relaxed staff and large, beautiful rooms - the best rooms of any Hilton resort without a doubt (the rooms were actually built by a Norwegian and Hilton had no input into their design, which explains why they are so large and unusual), and they all have outstanding views across the sea. This is a resort for couples, and not for families (children are not allowed), and there are no large beaches ( just a small beach), or the irritating loud music and pointless group activities that are associated with so many resorts these days - this is not a place for partying, but rather for relaxation. The food is also very good, if at times a little overpriced compared to the local restaurants, such as the deservedly popular BoatHouse restaurant, which serves the best simple creole buffet on Mahe. This hotel is one of my favourite places.

Room Tip: The best rooms are either the waterfront or the upper level rooms in the Hilltop area.

Small hotel, wonderfully located on Mahé island. Beautiful pool and the view from the bar is quite breathtaking. Lovely villas in a nice and well kept garden. All rooms with a view. Very gentle staff.

Having had somewhat disappointing experiences previously at Hilton Seychelles Northolme, it was great to finally experience what a truly fantastic hotel this really can be. Everything was excellent this time, from check-in to check-out.

Food is actually quite reasonably priced at this hotel, but we missed the wonderful yellow fin tuna we had last time we visited.

Well done!

Feeling tired, cold and polluted, we flew from Europe to paradise!!
Wonderful top rate accomodation, discreet perfection everywhere. I have rarely met such well trained staff who went out of their way to make us feel at home.
Delicious food to please everyone, different themes each evening.

We honeymooned in the Seychelles December 2012 but had originaly booked at Bird Island. We had an unfortunate experience there with mice in the bed and unhelpful staff not to mention bad service. So when our agents moved us we were in two minds what to expect.

From the moment we arrived at the Hilton Seychelles (we stayed for 8 nights), it was like heaven on earth. Everything was 5* and beyond. The staff were so helpful, welcoming and nothing was too much for them, fantastic service, the food was so tasty (the chef even cooked us a fish we had caught when we went deep sea fishing!) and the accommodation was perfect. It really made our honeymoon. Such a contrast to the reception we had experienced at Bird Island.

We could heartily recommend the Hilton mainly for people who like a small personal place (it only has 24 lodges), no children, conveniently located for the capital Victoria, fantastic Bali spa location (right on the rocks) and a peacefull atmosphere 24 hours a day. One of the gardeners cut us coconuts on a daily basis so we could drink the milk - nothing was too much trouble for them. They all made us feel so welcome. We were very pleased to have had a good experience in the end on the Seychelles. Well done everyone! And thank you for making our honeymoon so beautiful.

Room Tip: I believe they are going to build more lodges so check before you book.

Stayed for a week over Christmas 2012. We loved it. Everything about the hotel is excellent and cannot fault anything.We would definitely go again. The villas are delightfiul and my wife thinks that the bathroom is the best she has ever experienced. The food is brilliant and the Christmas Eve dinner that we had was so good we were moved to compliment the chef in person. If you have the money (as it is not cheap) go there.
